If one wants to charge the phone and at the same time listen to some kind of audio via non-bluetooth headphones like when watching a movie on a train ride there is not yet an easily accessible solution.
While the support mentions that
“DAC Charging Dongle Cables can be a solution in case you need both charging and audio.”
one is left to research and try out products by themselves. As this would be both unecessarily frustrating and not sustainable I hope that either the fairphone team itself or the community will do this researching and product testing once for everyone.
I’ve spend quite some time trying to decide which product to buy but I really don’t feel like spending probably multiple times 20 Euros without knowing if it’s even gonna work nor how well or how long (some of the product reviews are very demotivating)
generally it’d be super nice not to depend on amazon… but e.g. the ebay results were much worse and less reliable
