I recently got an Fairphone3+ (FP3+) with /e/OS, which I started using on the 27th December, and ever since the beginning I’ve been having issues with the battery.
First, I had a battery drain problem, which I think I have now solved after activating “Developer mode” and tweaking the settings.
Then, I’ve noticed that the phone suddenly switches off with no warning when the battery gets down to around 10% of charge. The light keeps blinking for a while but I can’t switch the phone on: I need to plug it and the phone needs to start charging for me to be able to switch it on.
And now comes the weirdest thing: every time I’ve had to physically remove the battery and put it back in for the phone to start charging. Otherwise it will not start charging at all when I plug the charger.
I found a couple of old posts by people complaining of a similar behaviour on FP1 and FP2, and they solved it by getting a new battery. But I’m asking here first because I’m using the newest FP3+ and both the phone and the battery are barely two weeks old.
Does any of you have an idea of what could be causing this issue and how I could solve it?
Many thanks in advance!
