Hello, I got my Fairphone for a week now and my biggest issue at the moment is, that youtube in full screen mode stutters. I deinstallted the app but it?didnt really help. Is the graphics chip to weak for it? Because internet isnt the bottleneck
Sounds like the same issue as below. It’s not something people can reproduce in general. Maybe you can share some more about your phone setup as in which apps you have installed, which networks you use while streaming YT, those kind of things.
Yeah I did see this post. But it doesn’t seem it did go anywhere.
I have the green version of the fp4. I use the stock android version, that was on the phone at the beginning. And it doesnt seem to make a diffrence, if I use wifi or mobile signal internet. I do use plex in full screen in app form, but it’s not a problem with stutters in fullscreen mode.
After trying to use youtube in Chrome, it seems to not be a problem even in fullscreen mode.
It’s hard to say. I recently tried a custom ROM on my Pixel 3. Didn’t workout because of security warnings with some apps. So I reverted the official and last released ROM of February, for some reason the Google app (search, news, etc.) is now extremely slow. I won’t do another factory reset because my Fairphone 4 will be here in a few weeks, but I’m sure a reset would fix this.
If you don’t have much local stuff on it yet, then a factory reset might be a good idea.
If youtube videos work in a browser (like chrome etc) but stutter in another app then from my POV it´s not a matter of the FP´s hardware or the (stock) OS but a matter of the apps that make it stutter - I guess a bad implementation of video-codecs or similar.
I´d rather reach out to their support then - or use an alternative app. There are several nice alternatives for the data-hungry-youtube app
I am not entirely sure yet, but I changed the micro sd card, which I use to expand the iternal storage and it seemsy, that this helped a lot.
Before the phone warned me, that the ussage of the older micro sd card could have some issue. But I would not have guessed, that this would make a bottleneck to stream stuff😅
Do you use the SD card really for internal storage to install apps? Or as external storage to store more raw data like MP3s and such? If you use it to install apps then yes, there are issues with that. Because your built-in storage is (usually) much faster than SD cards.
Please be aware there are a number of issues with an SD card as Internal storage, not least is that as the data is encrypted you cannot access via another device, so if your phone fails and you haven’t backed it all up you will loose some data.
