Issue#8682: Fairphone - FP2 speakers sputtering, hitches and tinny listening to podcast?

  • @happykid wrote:

    Good afternoon you all!
    Last night I used my new FP2 the first time to listen to podcasts. I usually put on a timer, and fall asleep to someone speaking.
    I had already listened to the previous 11 episodes of this podcast
    http://thehistoryofrome.typepad.com/the_history_of_rome/2008/11/12-the-first-samnite-war.html
    through TuneIn on my Galaxy 3 without problems. Yesterday, in the linked episodes, there were distracting hitches and a sputtering of speakers. #nosleep
    I wonder what it could be?
    Did my old phone have a better "equalizer", for want of a better word? Or could the speaker in the phone be faulty? Is it because the phone is new? Or the Internet connection too bad? (No problem before)
    I now listen to the same episode on my old phone without problems.
    Any advice?
    I still have one week to decide whether to send back the phone. Add to that that even in energy saving mode, the FP2 battery did not last the day and is already charging, I wonder what to do.
    Feedback at work about the phone has been great

    PS: I reset my phone to factory settings yesterday, btw, and voila, there was the green LED when charged. Funny, huh?

  • Issue#62709: Fairphone - FP2: Sync Issue with MS Exchange (contacts)

    @KleinerAdmin wrote: My Exchange account on FP2 in general works: mails, calendar and contacts sync fine. But entering or changing a birthday entry in the Android contacts app prevents syncing contacts with Exchange any more. Syncing works again if the birthday entry is dropped in FP2. If birthday entries are entered or changed in my Office Outlook or Outlook Web Access, these changes are successfully synced with my FP2. Searching the web gives a highly interesting result (androidcentral). In short, an internal format mismatch of the Androids date is most likely the reason my Exchange 2013 server rejects this sync request. I created Exchange server-side logs and found the following error message in the sync-log: SyncCommand_ConvertRequestsAndApply_Change_AcceptClientChange_Exception : Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.AirSyncPermanentException bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.AirSync.AirSyncUtcDateTimeProperty.get_DateTime() bei Microsoft.Exchange.AirSync.SchemaConverter.

  • Issue#905649: Fairphone - Severe issue with my FP2 and USB & charging (which used to run just fine for 4 months no

    @root wrote: Hi! I've been a happy FP2 user for nearly 4 month now, running FPOSOS (self-compiled in the beginning, now on FPOSOS 16.05 and 16.06). My FP2 started to behave strange in the last week (reboots, empty battery in the morning after charging all night, etc. - all the good & known stuff). Tonight I wanted to find out what's wrong. I can say: Charging is fine when the phone is switched off I can transmit data in "fastboot" mode (e.g. "fastboot -w update ..." works) As soon as the OS is started, charging becomes a game of luck. And whenever I plug the phone into a computer, the USB connection choice dialog would not appear. Nothing, no "adb" etc. Strange, isn't it? What I did now: Data reset Wipe each and everything Re-install FPOSOS 16.06 Re-install FPOSOS 16.05 Removed all SIM cards and the SD card as well Repaired permissions from TWRP Completely disassembled the phone (all modules), cleaned contacts with alcohol (no, not with beer!), assembled the phone again

I've tried to contact the Fairphone support Januaray 14, but the ticket is still open. Did more of you have problems with the shipping documents? The phone was supposed to be sent to Norway.

  • Issue#8693: Fairphone - FP2: Research on power consumption in IDLE and STAND-BY to prolong battery duration

    @therob wrote: This thread is intended to discuss about the possibilities to increase the battery efficiency of the FP2 (using the pre-installed FP-OS). Maybe we can develop it into an wiki/guide later on. Note by @paulkreuzer: Since there are many topics about batteries and charging let's please keep them sharply distinguished from each other.To discuss problems with your battery please go here, to show off how long you can make your battery last go here and to learn more about your battery or contribute to our knowledgebase go here.... Bottom line: As I am quite pleased about the battery consumption during the stand-by/screen switched off phase I am very dissapointed of the energy saving capabilities if screen is turned on, but the phone has nothing to do (= idle). Until now I used for this BetterBatteryStats, CPU-Z, SetCPU at my rooted FP2.If have none of the google-services actively used, no google-account set up and only installed programms from F-Droid or via direct APKs

  • Issue#8694: Fairphone - FP2: incoming calls --> 5s until screen turns-on

    @therob wrote: If I get an incoming call my FP2 rings (and vibrates if option is activated), but the screen takes about 5-10s until it turns-on and only then I can see who is calling. Did I messed up any setting? Does anybody experiences the same behaviour? Any idea where I can look for a solution? Btw: is there an option to enable an "increasing ring tone" (starting with vibrating and then ringing very quite--->ascending to the max. ringtone loudness set in options)?If not: I hope GravityBox will soon be installable to the FP2 as it brings us this feature...

  • Issue#13827: Fairphone - FP2 Display shutter stutter

    @janmollitor wrote: Hi there, today my new FP2 arrived and I started exploring the menus and settings. A very very annoying bug showed up: the display shutters/stutters when I touch the display (Video: https://youtu.be/RrkqU4X14Rc). I rebooted the device some times and even dis- and reconnected the display. But nothing changed. Another question is about the preinstalled google apps. How can I uninstall Chrome for example? I just can deinstall the updates, but when the FP2 connects to WLAN and starts installing updates for apps Chrome is installed again. It also shows up in the "all apps". No matter if uptodate or "uninstalled". I really dont want to use this browser and some other apps too. Jan Mollitor Posts: 5 Participants: 3 Read full topic

Also, I have created another panel on my homescreen but I could not choose where to put it. As for now, my new panel is to the right of the recent and most used apps. I would like to have this recent-panel to the far right and my new panel with apps imediately after the home-panel but I did not manage to move the recent-panel. Is it posible?
