Fairphone 3+ freezes q 0.14 / 0.15

in q version 0.14 and 0.15 unlocking the lock screen freezes regularly with attached screen artifact.


With some patience the artifact disappears and unlocking is possible. However, after unlocking, the phone is often still very slow in response with random freezes.

The 3 weeks old FP3+ is currently not usable with e.

Are there any known workarounds. Can i provide some more input, logging. Pleas just let me know.

There are, if it’s hardware …


You can enable adb debugging, connect a PC, open a shell/cmd window and use adb shell top to see what the phone is doing. Then you can file a bug in gitlab.

Thank you very much for the quick reply!
The fault seems to be the hardware - un- and redoing the display module has fixed it.
Crazy - i would not have expected this from a new FP3.
