I have managed to get the Fairphone 3+ through my employer and bought the case and screen protector myself and now have been using it for a couple of days.
Since I am switching from a smaller Pixel 2, it still kind of feels a bit bulky. I really wish there were phones with smaller screens. Bezels do not bother me, but being able to hold it comfortably in one hand would be nice. Pixel 2 was not that much smaller but still a bit smaller.
The one thing that was surprising to me was the location of the speaker. While using the phone, depending on the task, I might use my right or my left hand. So when I use my left hand, often it will cover the speaker. So in my opinion a speaker facing down would have been a better choice.
The performance of the phone is OK but I do feel the difference that some applications, like Outlook takes a noticeably longer time to start, in my case, it takes 3-4 seconds. Not that bad but still noticeable for a phone that released 3 years after Pixel 2.
The camera experience is close to that of Pixel 2. Without optical stabilization, it is not possible to take pictures while zooming in. I actually would gladly pay extra for a camera module with optical stabilization option if it will be available in the future.
I like protective case wrapping a bit around the corners, adding extra protection to the edges.
I should say that overall the feeling about the phone is about what I expected. I have not found anything that stops me from using it as a daily driver. And the battery, headphone jack, open bootloader, environment, fairtrade, modularity, and repairability (not in the order of importance) makes me feel that I made the right choice for the next 4-5 years.
Good job, Fairphone team!
