Hi all, I like my Sailfish X phone. I'm using whatsapp every day and have now two questions:

A) when making voice calls the phone suddenly closes all apps, including whatsapp. The call ends also, of course. Is this only my problem or do others face the same issue?

B) not a big issue but somehow strange: during the playback of received voice messages the phone vibrates continuously. Am I the pnly one facing this?

A) I don't use Whatsapp but I have had a similar effect using the Android app Open Camera. It wasn't possible to take a single shot; Open Camera and all other apps were shut down when I tried to. Lighthouse showed the process system_server using 30% of RAM. My Xperia was running for about one week without a reboot. After I finally rebooted, everything worked as expected again. Restarting Android support would have been sufficient, I guess.

I can confirm that WhatsApp calls do not work on my Jokla 1, too. it is not a device problem but a Sailfish problem.

I have another bug. When pressing the play button of voice messages the Ringtone for an incoming message is played resulting in not understanding the first 2 Seconds of the voice message....
