After using eOs on my PF3 for a couple of month and beeing very happy. I even ordered a new FP3+ for my wife and a camera upgrade for my “old” FP3.
But then, frustration and problems started last sunday.
After instaling my new camera module onto my FP3, I couldn’t use the camera app because the hardware was not compatible. After a short research, I read that I need the newst android 10 q version. I actualy didn’t want to update because I new what this would mean, loosing all app settings etc… wich is a big pain.
I decided to remove the new camera module and wait a little until I’m mentaly ready to do an update and reinstalling and reconfiguring everything like it was before. Unfortunaly, I wouldn’t remove one of the 13 screws, it wasn’t doable. So this meant that I had to upgrade to the newst version.
Last Sunday I did it, I flashed the newst version of android 10 v0.12 q. Evrithing was fine. I got the message that my SD card was to slow I should change it if possible.
After reinstalling moste of my apps, I ran into some problems.
- Livedisplay is not working (known issue)
- Can’t save attachment from the mail app (known issue)
- Can’t take screenshots, not enough space. (I have a new SanDisk Pro SD Card with 128GB)
- Nextcloud app, seams to have some bugs as well, syncing is not working proparly.
- Shelter do not support FileShuttle, wich is very bad in my opinion
- WhatsApp is not able to download recieved media (runing in Shelter)
- WhatsApp is not able to use the camera to record something, either foto or film recording
- Picture Quality is extremly bad, I expected a biger jump in qualtiy, this was not worth it to change.
So now, facing all those problems, I can’t do that to my wife. It’s not fair to give here a new fp3+ with this eOS 10 q.
Android 9 version 0.12 was so good! No problems at all evrything worked like a charm. I was telling everyboady that I was using this awsome eOS, I was proud of my Fone and my OS. Since one week it is different!
So I’m aware that it is still a beta version and a lot of work has to be done. I’m very thanksfull for all people working on this project. And I will stay on this project as well, because to me there is no other alternativ. The google and ios ecosystem are the dark side.
I hope there will be a lot of updates in the next couple of weeks and all those problems will be fixed asap.
I just wanted to tel my stroy here but don’t be mad at me. I hade to leave it out
Now I need a new christmas present for my wife, any ideas?
