I bought an FP3+ with e from e.foundation earlier this month and still working on setting it up. I like the idea of the fairphone + better privacy, but I am running into many small issues / bugs that I have to research in this community and wondering if that is ‘normal’ part of this experience (part of e being in beta)? Some minor issues I can live with in trade for better privacy, but it seems that this is taking quite a lot of time for me to understand and find work arounds.
So here are a few of the things I’ve experienced so far:
Battery is not charging past 64%, it did well the first two times but now this seems to be the treshhold even after a night of charging
Phone regularly ‘freezes’ for a moment. Touchscreen does not work and/or sometimes goes black at these times. It comes back after a few seconds, often I find it going back to the home screen and I have to go back to the app I was using (though that may be because I have pressed the home button somewhere during the freeze to check if that still worked).
The browser seems rather slow to load new pages, also does not go to ‘next page’.
Tasks synching with ecloud does not seem to work as expected.
Touch screen is not very responsive, often need to press or swipe several times to make it register.
There was a problem with calls through WhatsApp initially, the connection would end every few moments but that seems to have stopped. The sound quality is weird now though, I hear everything at the other end very loudly/echoey as if they’re in the bathroom.
Spot search or e.community search regularly come back with the result that they did not find anything, if I do the same search again it works fine.
Adding e-account took 3 or 4 tries before it worked, it seems to be okay now (except tasks synch) but have not tested the full scope of it yet.
I’m sure there was more but this is what I recalled just now. Just curious if this seems similar to others’ experiences or if I need to connect with customer support?
