Fairphone 2

 

Aiming to inject some much-needed environmental awareness into the smartphone market, Dutch startup Fairphone debuted its first smartphone in 2013. 60,000 people bought the original handset, and three years on, the company has introduced its Fairphone...

Fairphone 2 review

 

Is this smartphone a match for its own angelic ethics?

Ethically made ; Innovative modular design ; Decent screen

Built like a brick ; Uses last year's components

By far the best smartphone for your conscience

Fairphone 2 review

 

The smartphone with an ethical ethos and a modular design

Ethically sourced materials ; Easy to repair for most users ; Eye-catching exposed design

Average camera performance ; Battery is hit and miss ; High up-front cost

The Fairphone 2 wants to change the way smartphones are thought about, manufactured and repaired, from ethical sourcing to easy repairing. They're noble ambitions but we'll have to wait for the Fairphone 3 for a truly compelling handset.

Fairphone 2 mobile phone review

  (Rating Hidden)

Fairphone is an ambitious company with laudable ideals - it aims to make its corner of the smartphone industry more ethical and sustainable. The Fairphone 2 was originally released in 2015, but has recently been updated to Android 7. Is this enough to...

Fairphone 2 review

 

The first thing that greets your eyes when you open the packaging of the Fairphone 2 is a simple message: "Yours to open, yours to keep." For added emphasis, these words are printed on the inside...

Easy to repair and (potentially) upgrade ; Supports ethically-conscious electronics ; A unique prospect in the market

Bulky compared to flagship smartphones ; Bad camera and lackluster performances ; Expensive based on specs alone

Review: Fairphone 2

 

You know how things usually happen: You look away for one second, or get distracted, send your phone hurling to the floor, and watch it smash. If this has happened to you, then you also know the temptation of using non-official replacement parts to cut...

Made with conflict-free minerals. First modular phone to ship, and first 10/10 rated phone on iFixit. Made to last, offers replacement parts at a reasonable price

Unattractive design with matte cover: pick it in transparent or translucent colors. Poor choice of camera, outdated 32-bit processor. Kinda bulky. Kinda pricey

Unfortunately, Fairphone OS is based on the outdated Android 5.1 Lollipop instead of Marshmallow. But since this phone is an open platform, the Jolla community is currently working on Sailfish OS for the Fairphone 2, exploiting the advanced mode that...

Fairphone 2 Smartphone Review

 

Good conscience. Fairphone's 2 promotes fair labor conditions and sustainability rather than exploitation and waste. With its unique, to the smartphone world, modular design that easily allows replacing components, the 5-inch Android takes a different...

fair production conditions ; module design ; dual-SIM + micro-SD ; bright Full HD panel ; high system speed ; LTE

high price ; Android 5.1 only ; bulky casing ; no NFC ; screen flickering ; charger not included ; throttles during load ; weak battery

High standards have been set: Raw materials from sources aware of their responsibility rather than financed by warlords, fair wages and worker's representatives rather than exploitation, fair labor conditions rather than sweatshops, and recycling...
