    I've had the Fairphone 2, then the 3, now I've bought the upgraded selfie camera. I love the modularity and repairability by design, just wish they'd ask for an extra couple of hundred and throw a Snapdragon 8 series chip in here for more performance.

    Can you do a scratch test on the phone having liquid tempered

  • mathskzha

    Not including the charging brick is so much worse for the environment if u need a brick or the plug cause the extra shipping, especially for USB c cause iPhone users or ppl with old phones that had micro USB would need to buy they new cord and or brick. They should have an option to buy with the charger for a few bucks extra

  • quelorepario

    There are people using the same fairphones for over 6 years. The fact that we might get surprised hearing this is a sign that there is something really wrong going on in this industry. This should be the norm, not a freaking oddity. I have a 286's that's still running, My Nokia 3310 is still working, even my Motorola Startac is workinga after 20 years or more. And somehow we got indoctrinated by the cellphone industry that the cool thing these days is to throw away a handlheld computer every 2 years. It is time to wake the fuck up.

    Hi, Jerry did the test right or not Jerry liked me I told someone you are an idiot to buy an iPhone or Android foulds no also out of respect for those who manufacture saving the world it means saving as much waste as possible that we throw tons tons of plastic and therefore fairphone instead the shit that we throw in the sewer instead you cannot transform it and when they talk about producing even more and unfortunately we have to live together. 👍🌎🌏🌍

    "A single camera dates the Fairphone 3 pretty hard." I understand that multiple cameras are the "norm" now, but why do people even need more than 1 on each side? What purpose does that even serve to the common person on the street? you got a camera for selfies on the front and a camera for everything else on the back. extra cams are extra price, nothing more.

    Also important to note: the fairphone 3 comes with a removable rubber strip all around, making it very well protected against drops (both the edges and the screen).

    Hey jerry, since you are in America why not use a zippo lighter instead, it would be kinda cool if you used in a video. Btw good video, keep it up.

    For people that just want a phone that works and lasts, this is a great phone. And a much bigger statement than any i-phone or alike... (which in my view are totally obsolete, 'old economy' that kills our planet). I have been happy with my FairPhone 1 between 2013 and 2017 and even more happy (bigger memory) with my FairPhone 2 of 2017! Perhaps I need a new phone in 2 or 3 years, who will say? But I can say what I would like to buy then!

    It would be nice if it was a good phone. My current phone works fine, but it is slow. I guess you can't change the CPU/graphics part either to replace it by a new one. That would means it will still be slow after some years.

    Imagine buying a modular phone like this. And instead of annually releasing a Brandnew phone they release upgraded modular parts for us to upgrade like memory, board, camera, screen and battery etc. 🤔🤔

    Imagine if companies like Apple and Samsung were this considerate for their customers, no more planned obsolescence, easy and cheaply repairable devices. It makes them look all the more petty when they stopped shipping chargers.

  • Peter

    My LG V20 is similarly easy to work on, has better cameras, universal remote, FM radio, top end audio through the headphone jack which can power studio headphones, records up to 130 dB audio clearly and can do it in FLAC quality, also has a removable battery, and the back comes of with the push of a button. Oh yeah, and it's less than half the cost. Not saying you shouldn't get a Fairphone, they are cool, but if you can't afford one or you want the extra features, get a V20.

  • mjc0961

    I wonder what Fairphone will be up to by the time I actually need to replace my current phone. After all, it's not very environmentally friendly to just buy a new phone when your current phone works just fine. (also say what you will, but one camera is enough)

    Wasn't it like Google gave up on their Idea of replaceable components because of money? And that such a concept was terribly bad for all smartphone manufacturers because they all release phones every year with planned obsolescence in mind?

    nice concept but hardware its a joke, no one with brain would of purchase this for 500 dollars maybe 100 dollars

  • cnl1213

    I understand they are trying to be environmentally responsible and sustainable, but I would think that being modular gives great opportunity for customizable glass/rubberized/sandstone backs or frames. Feels like a missed opportunity here.

    A pop off back panel? Haven't seen one of those since 2014. If they make a slightly more budget one around 300 dollars maybe I'd get it and upgrade slowly, since with the Fairphone you CAN. Love the concept.
