Fairphone 3 review


The Fairphone 3 is built to prioritize ethics, sustainability, and repairability, rather than specs and gimmicks.

Brilliant approach to phones Rugged and protected Replaceable battery

Camera could be better Performance is budget level Only on Android 9

Fairphone deserves a lot of plaudits for what it's trying to do in the areas of sustainability, eco-friendliness, repairability, and protections for workers along the supply chain, and the Fairphone 3 has enough going for it to make it a viable option...

Fairphone 3 review: The only way is ethics?


The Fairphone 3 is a noble project, but in raw specs you're paying more for less

Clearly taking environmental concerns seriously ; Extremely repairable ; Bloatware free

Good ethics doubles the price ; Performance is subpar across the board

For that reason, Fairphone 3 gets a two-star rating, with a bonus extra star for putting environmental concerns front and centre.

Fairphone 3, hands on: Ethically sourced and user-repairable Review | ZDNet


You could get a higher spec for the same money, but Fairphone has loftier aims than a simple price/performance calculation.

Fairphone 3 review: the smartphone for a clear conscience | AndroidPIT


Fairphone presents a new smartphone that, like its predecessors, should convince through sustainability. Here is our full review.

The Fairphone 3 is not a smartphone for users who want the fastest processor or the latest technology. Of course, the Fairphone would have been better if it offered a slightly better processor. It remains to be seen how it will perform in five years'...

Fairphone 3 hands-on: Modular, repairable, five years of support. What gives?


The Fairphone 3 presents an option for a new smartphone without obsolescence built-in. So what do we make of it?
