How much does Fairphone need to alter besides the device/drivers and blobs? Would be interesting to have a bit more insight into what they do, as I assume they initially start with the AOSP release of Android. Correct me if I’m wrong.
From my own software engineering experience etc. only speculation.
If I had the caller ID issue I’m sure I would have been querying Fairphone directly.
I made a new topic for the brightness issue which Fairphone acknowledged but no-one has made a separate topic on the > Germany > Vodafone > Caller ID issue ~ I’m a little surprised given it’s impact and the number of disgruntled users.
Not sure why you linked to the post above given your criticism.
As to downplaying the issues, there is a dedicated topic on the brightness issue and I have that.
The caller ID I don’t have but I can understand how upset those that do have it could be.
It just seems all the ranting and raving about Fairphone in the base topic only go to help disgruntled users vent to each other. Howvere as this is a public forum it makes sense that such clearly off topic venting could be a separate topic.
The idea of a separate topic is not to play down any issues that uses have with Fairphone but to focus them and separate them from topics that provide workarounds.
only that its not off topic… And if you do not have experienced the unknown caller bug yourself… what makes you an expert in the subject to tell people how to feel about this (wich are affected by the problem)? You have no workaround or any helpful advise because there is non. Also, the german tread of unknown caller bug linked to the english one… so this is why we are there… and not in your “new” thread.
Well let me tell you… You complaining about peoples rants and the “venting” they do in this userforum. Of wich you remind everyone that IT IS a userforum.
What do you expect from a userforum? A feelgood-circlejerk about fairphone awesomeness all the time? If that is what you want… they have a marketingdivision that do that in various social media channels. You might wanna go there for good feelings.
It apears as if you project criticism against the fairphone-devs on yourself. If someone (and by someone i mean me) “vents” in a thread you jump out of the corner
private inconvenience is not a public inconvenience, so privately i can use a bucket.
The problem is seeing Fairphone’s inability to clear your pipe as a public inconvenience, hence a lot of public conversation, where as your dissapointment us private.So when private inconvenieces are publicly aired it can be a bit dirty and smelly:)No harm airing your thoughts in public but some users of the forum may be down wind of your air.
Maybe it’s my UK language use of English. I have no problem with people venting and am not complaining. This topic is doing exactly what I was offering a place to express how upset someone is with Fairphone, not to dissuade them from doing so.
If you want to continue your expressing your disappointment/frustration with Fairphone in the other topic you are clearly welcome. I don’t see anyone complaining about you.
Maybe I am the only one you take issue with.
On the subject where you have issues with other users, i.e. not just wanting to express you’re frustration at Fairphone, there is this.
As you seem to be complaining here about my posts not supporting your complaints not vehemently enough you may consider that is off-topic and use.
The name of this thread is “Upset about Fairphone’s handling of Update issues?”, so this
is off topic, because it has nothing to do with an update policy, respectively a lack of information.
It would help a lot sometimes if you just leave some posts uncommented. Instead, it seems that you keep the fire burning, e.g. by opening thread after thread, adding more and more fuel by doing so. There are things in life we both cannot change, and so is the current update mess. By opening one thread after the other and repeating your unnecessary arguments about things that cannot be changed shortly, I think you do not prove beneficial to Fairphone. If your daughter wanted a hot chocolate and hates vanilla, you would not cook a vanilla milk for her, right? And you would not insist and try to convince her by telling the advantages of vanilla milk to her, right?
Therefore: No more threads about obvious failures, please. And especially not about hot chocolate and vanilla milk! Thanks…
