Maybe it has to do with the Android version itself!? Which version does your S6 have?
Maybe try the FP one in their store? Just an idea.
Okay, another edit: you can also try to download the latest version manually as an apk from a trusted webpage. I needed to do this as Android auto is not available in Sweden. But I am very sure that this will not fix your issue.
Thanks all for the help. I will go through the articles.
For me the most annoying issue is #2. I have contacted support about it. Hope they can give a solution. Otherwise I will put the phone in a drawer and buy a used one or buy a new battery for the old S6. Which I feel defeats the purpose of FP.
No I am not a Fairphone employee, my comments are purely mine. I would tend to quote and put a reference to is i were using someone else’s statements.
Although Fairphone do tout the modular aspects as benign to the user and through that to the environment in general this does not reduce the overall consumer usage that I can measure, especially given the poor experiences people have spoken of on this forum. For example I note people have had to change the bottom module of the FP2 a number of times ~ need I refer?
Whereas the is a clear and present change the way the miners and manufacturers are treated ~ this is the Fair bit that I am investing in, not the phone.
There is no doubt fair is not fair enough, but it does highlight the inequalities amongst people, having a modular phone does little to relieve the major inequalities.
So it could just be a modular spade with a removal shaft made of wood, but who cut the tree and how were they paid, so I make my own, but not the phone.
Whereas I’m glad I bought the Fairphone, I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone either, but I will buy again purely down to the fair labour. Someone has to pay, why shouldn’t it be us ‘rich’ westerners who wouldn’t go down the dark mines of Africa for all the tea in China.
Now we all know that you are a ‘rich’ person. Tell your opinion to poor people who have to put aside to buy a Fairphone one day. They deserve to have a working device, too, so there is not much difference to poor workers in China. In fact, it turns the other way round: Those who are equitably paid can live with the money given by the poor who get a faulty device in return. Where has the fairness gone?
Wow! Off topic a bit but I’m more concerned about my actions towards other than theirs to me. I don’t ‘need’ a phone but there are people who ‘need’ to be treated better by me and supporting Fairphone keeps the argument topical.
That’s the lowest gov pension in the UK by the way
I always read your comments about how other people ‘needed’ to be treated better, and that someone ‘had to pay’ for someone else, regardless what is received in return… Wouldn’t it be fair to say that everyone is justified to get a fair share? Good money for the workers to live a good life, and good value for those who give the money. That would be a fair deal for everybody, otherwise I could cite the Spice Girls:
If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give
Taking is too easy, but that’s the way it is
How can anyone who lost his job and who has a very little budget due to the pandemic buy an every-day tool like the Fairphone for hundreds of Euros and get a device with so many issues in return? This is a mandatory tool that must work, instead you are arguing about higher income for Chinese workers. Why do Western people have to compensate that when they are poor, too? This is not about “wanna wanna”, it just is not easy for many people to “give give”, especially in these days…
