I haven’t seen a launcher which lets you customise this, yet.
If you search the internet, there supposedly are Apps which let you customise the quick settings menu in the desired way, but look out for in-App ads etc.
I didn’t dig too deep, though, I’m not using the quick settings menu all day long, and it still does its job.
Sticking with Android 11 only because of this will become kind of silly at the latest when update support for Android 11 runs out, so either about this time next year, or earlier with /e/OS for the Fairphone 3/3+ because of this here …
In my Fairephone 3, I have sometimes, an issue with “Trebuchet stopped working” when I try to switch between apps already opened.
And sometimes too, I can’t switch at all beause (I don’t know how to call it) “the menu for switching” is freezed => I restart the phone and it resolve this issue.
I try to swtich slowly and, for now, thoses issues doesn’t appeared anymore…
Edit : sorry, I was on 1.8.1 R and passed to 1.9 S
Something weird I just noticed on Fairphone 3(+) (i.e. actually on both of them). Factory-installed, unrooted.
device: FP3, FP3+
/e/OS version: 1.9-s-20230310268290-stable-FP3
On FP3/FP3+, the notification LED does not work anymore. The LED itself works if you go to Settings and play there with it, but when it should actually show a notification or indicate a low (or charging) battery, it stays blank.
Yup, right, I have that sometimes, too (FP3+ with 1.9-s stable): Switching active apps does not work (i.e. when pressing the “rectangular” button nothing happens). A restart solves it. I did not yet find a good way to reproduce, it just happens every 2nd/3rd day …
Does it help if you explicitly set the default launcher again in Settings - Apps - Default Apps - Home App?
If you are using the default Bliss launcher which comes with /e/OS, you could try whether clearing cache and storage of Trebuchet and/or BlissLauncher helps in Settings - Apps - See all … Apps - (three dot menu top right) - Show system - Trebuchet / BlissLauncher - Storage and cache - Clear cache (try this first) / Clear storage (this should reset the home screen and settings).
I have a Fairphone 3 I installed on /e/OS 1.9 (s-20230310268290-stable) recently (last Wednesday) and everything works very well.
There’s a little problem, the Wi-fi connection is really unstable (like not detectable in the AP’s logs), but only when the screen is off.
It looks like a settings that disables the Wi-fi when the screen is off, but the setting is absent, but I can’t find it, neither on the settings’ search engine, nor on the Internet.
Anyone knows how to disable this annoying setting?
But playing around with the settings I noticed that what did have an impact is that the LED suddenly works fine if I make the notification a permanent on light. So the issue seems is only with the blinking LED (regardless of the interval).
Short info for other (FP3) users who are not satisfied with the battery life in /e/OS 1.8.1 and 1.9:
After limiting location access permission of the WeatherOnline app to only while using the app and deactivating the Corona Warn App / CCTG, the energy consumption of microG is hardly measurable (1%). At the same time, the expected battery life has increased to over 2 days despite extensive use of the device (display switched on 4:14 h within 27 h).
Apparently microG doesn’t really go to sleep unless left completely alone for an extended period of time.
I am not yet satisfied with the energy consumption of the mobile network, since (unlike as in 1.8.1) it is still in first place with 26% of the energy consumption, although during the observation period not a single phone call was made, not a single SMS/MMS received or sent and only around 5 MB of mobile data was used and the mobile phone reception at my location is also quite acceptable.
What I learned from this:
The background activities of apps have a much bigger impact on battery life than I had expected. In this respect, I am grateful to the “annoying” location pill in the status bar in Android 12 for putting me on the right track.
Let’s see what else can be done about the mobile network…

Bonjour, depuis la dernière MAJ, j’observe une problématique et deux gênes ennuyantes.
le lecteur d’empreinte digital n’est plus activé, il n’y a plus l’option pour l’activer pour le déverrouillage, donc là c’est clairement pas normal. Je ne peux plus m’en servir maintenant. [Il a fallu éteindre et redémarrer après, pour voir le problème se corriger, le reboot seul ne suffisait pas]
la barre du haut ou il il y’a la date l’heure, le réseau, elle disparait, il faut tirez vers le bas pour la voir, aucune option pour la maintenir au dessus de tout. [Revenu au devant et toujours visible je ne sais pas comment et pourquoi le lendemain]
l’horloge de l’écran de verrouillage est devenu énorme et non configurable, ce qui suivant le fond, ne rend pas agréable la lecture. [ une configuration dans parametre/affichage permet de diminuer sur une ligne au lieu de deux ]
les transparences des couches sur les changements d’appli, ou sur le déverrouillage par mdp de l’écran d’accueil, ont disparu et remplacé par un fond opaque. [Non résolu mais ce n’est tellement pas important]
En revanche il y a quand même du mieux pour les autres modifications, et je remercie les développeurs pour leur travail.
Hello, since the last update, I’ve noticed a problem and two annoying annoyances.
The fingerprint reader is no longer activated, there is no longer an option to activate it for unlocking, so this is clearly not normal. I can’t use it anymore. [Solved with shutdown and reboot after. No simply reboot]
the top bar where there is the date, time, network, it disappears, you have to pull down to see it, no option to keep it on top of everything. [ solved i didnt know how]
the clock on the lock screen has become huge and non configurable, which depending on the background, doesn’t make it pleasant to read. [We have configuration for chang tail in parameter]
the transparency of the layers on the app changes, or on the unlock by keypass of the home screen, are gone and replaced by an opaque background. (Minor annoyance)
However, the other changes are better, and I thank the developers for their work.
