    The thing that i love of this phone it's that Fairphone has the possibility release upgrades, that would be cool to be able to buy a motherboard with a snapdragon 888 built in or more ram or even better the possibility to configure the motherboard with the SoC you want and how much ram you want on their website, just like a PC!

    I'd own a Fairphone if their phones weren't so big. But so it goes. x.x Such a great concept generally.

  • *************

    If it had different parts with different prices (battery sizes, camera modules, different chips, variety of refresh rates etc) at a reasonable price, i'd be really happy to back this up. I really like being able to simply fix what i got rather than constantly having to buy new stuff, even if it's cheaper to do so at times.

    Okay, nerd rant time: computers didn’t start off being upgradable. The closest to “upgradable hardware” was actually the Apple 2, with its expansion slots. Stuff like the Commodore Pet had no real way to upgrade them. Upgradable computers didn’t really become a standard until the IBM 5150, and MS-Dos.

  • Dayko

    Unfortunately I doubt many people will buy this for $500 over other phones at that price range. Personally I already bought a new phone this year so I will not buy a new one for 2-3 years minimum. People care about cameras and 120hz oled screens. Really hope this takes off though.

    Would love a Fairphone "Ultra" sort of thing. With a more modern design, Plastic is fine, but going back to bezels that large is tough. Would love to see bezels more like on the Galaxy S9. For me that's the biggest issue with the Fairphone. (Of course getting faster CPUs would be great aswell, perhaps increasing the longevity of the phone.

  • Dadive

    I would love to see a small Fairphone (in the ballpark of the iphone mini). I would buy it as soon as I can't repair my XZ2 Compact anymore

    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.

    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.
