I love my fairphone (1st Ed.), but there are a number of things that I would like to be improved, and I cannot read them from the specs:
What I like about FP1:
- the fairness concept
- the dual sim
- the replaceable battery
- the solid construction
What I dislike:
1/ very poor GPS : it does not work if you do not turn on WIFI or mobile network support (at least it doesn’t if you travel far, it cannot get your initial position).
2/ Poor Sound: I did not find any decent headphones with remote control: with my apple or Sennheiser headphones (with remote), I hear a distinct tic tic tic sound which is very annoying.
3/ camera quality: the color rendering is the one of a 10 years old digital camera. this could be improved by a firmware update, but these kind of optimisation need to be sensor-lens specific (I used to be a colour scientist). There has been quite some discussion on the forum about this topic, but when I look at the posted picture, they still look to me coming from an old camera.
So my question is: will the FP2 have
- good gps, which works standalone
- headphones with remote, where you could control the sound volume, stop and go and forward backward skip (like on the iphone). or at least a list of recommended headphone which have this functionality
- better colours on the camera ?
