It’s great that some serious things are finally getting resolved and I sincerely thank you and the whole team for that. But the situation with the screen dimming and the proximity sensor issues is getting absolutely ridiculous. For many people, the phone has been absolutely unusable outdoors for the past few months. And if it gets swept under the rug like last year, then it will happen again next year. Can we get a definitive date on when this will be fixed? I’m seriously considering getting another phone because right now I can’t use the phone for navigation in my car. That’s how bad it is. So much for sustainability.
Even if it should be a janky soultion for the screen dimming like this or an option to completely disable the proximity sensor, it’s better than nothing.
Oh, thanks for pointing it out, I missed that one. It’s disappointing that the fix won’t come until October because it won’t be of any help this summer. But at least we’ll get to see it. However, my question about the proximity sensor still stands. We’ve been experiencing that problem for a year and a half now.
Awesome! I’m also happy to see these bug fixes. More and more people in my social circle are interested in Fairphone. But I cannot lie to them, I of course tell about the great things like repairability and fair trade aspects of the phone. But I won’t sugarcoat the camera and microphone performance or the general quality of the updates since I got my FP4. I hope this bug fixing trend keeps continuing and updates don’t delay too often. Then I can finally stop acting like a grumpy guy all the time
