First of all, I apologize if this topic appeared somewhere else, I wanted to share this experience, since it seems to me unique to my devise.
My fairphone 3 is 20 months old, and already suffered from one update in summer 2021: I sent it back since the phone went dead suddenly even if the battery was full.
Anyhow, I changed the battery in the same time as the update and I encountered the same issue already explained in this topic: Battery drain on v1.0 (#5549) · Issues · e / Backlog · GitLab
But that is not the big issue: the issue is the camera behavior.
Before the update, I often had to restart the phone due to cameras instability (black screen).
Now, the issue is more present and extended to receiving or emitting video calls (telegram, signal, WhatsApp… All the same issue).
The phone freezes, I cannot kill the call and have to restart the phone.
I am not sure which camera is doing this (the front or the back?).
Am I the only one experiencing this ?
Do I have to upgrade the hardware with the FP3+ camera or is it a purely software issue ?
Finally, last minor issue, the brightness settings go back by default to a minimum after locking the screen.
Thanks for the support.
