  • A great phone - that may have been a close contender - had i known about it when i got my phone. I do wish they also had people that were better at design - so it would not look like a boring plastic brick. If you go sustainable and expensive for that reason .. you can also go for better materials like stainless steel and a bit more daring shapes and colours.

  • The modular concept ist awesome, I wish it would become more common in the smartphone world. Imagine if you have the iPhone 11 and could just upgrade the camera to the iPhone 12 model. Now that would be environmentally friendly, you greedy Cupertino hypocrites.

  • I really really like the idea but sadly it‘s just not up there. It has hardware from 2 years ago and the design is generic. If they would make a more premium version of it with the same idea I might be interested but as it stands today I have to pass on that one. But as always, great video. Thanks

  • Incredibly bad customer service with fairphone. Mine and the ones of two friends came in damaged (microphone not working properly, touchscreen malfunctioning etc.) Just send it back right? Wrong. The website states to get in touch with them per telephone or email and follow their instructions to get the refund. Sadly nobody answers the calls or emails. IN DAYS! wtf fairphone??? To scam the customers into a broken phone and deny refund. Never seen anything like this before. Avoid at all costs.

  • I think they should try to make it more modern because a $500 dollar phone should have things like multiple cameras and less bezels on the screen. Really the only two things that break on most phones are batteries and screens, and I think that they could make a version of this phone that makes both of those things very easily replaceable while still maintaining a more modern feature set.

  • I'm always unlucky with the release dates of these phones being only one or two years after I bought another phone. So when they got released, I already had a decent working phone (especially now with Blackberry KeyOne Black from 2018), and when I needed a new one the last generation of Fairphones is slightly outdated (about in last quarter of production cycle). For now I just hope my Blackberry is going to last some more years! btw this channel helped making my decision on it ;)

  • As an electronic technician specialised in repairing smaller electronics specifically: This, this is what we need in the world not more glue and more components you can barely take apart without breaking shit left right and center even if you do know what you are doing. This is how shit should be done these days, we are already drowning in electric waste that is too expensive to repair.

  • I like it, but there are some issues that get frustrating. The screen becomes less responsive over the course of a day, and requires a reset to regain normal responsiveness. I’ve also got a weird issue with sound balancing: it’s like the phone has an inverse sound balancing feature. If the sound of a music track or video gets quieter, the phone will decide to bump down the volume a little; if it gets louder, the phone will bump up the volume a little. It’s a strange thing. Other than that, it’s a good phone. I’d like something smaller, but I guess that’s hard to do with the modular features.

  • Thumbs up to Fairphone for implementing the concept and Jerry for his super cool videos. Could be awesome if consumers can choose some components of the phone based on their usage. For example the company can provide 2 or 3 options on the components say a battery of 3500 mah or 4500 mah, screen size of 5 inch or 6 inch etc...

My old phone had a bad battery and sometimes I'd take it out and pop it back in to make it work, weirdly bummed that I can't do that anymore Edit: I remember now that the SD and SIM cards were *inside* the phone, blocked by the battery, so you really were meant to be able to easily remove the back and battery. I've had my current phone for a couple of years and i still don't know how it opens up (though I guess that's a good thing)
