Hi there. I just bought a Fairphone and the experience was not like I could recommend that to any of my friends. First of all I already have an account with fairphone - why do they want an additional account for the forum??? Is this yet another company involved? I consider that unprofessional and unnecessarily inconvenient. Then there is a company involved called adyen com which sends emails exclusively in HTML format. How can you claim you are privacy conscious and your phones are secure and then send emails containing HTML? Of course the OS on the Fairphone full of Google is highly questionable as well. Luckily there are alternatives but only if you have the skills though. IMHO Fairphone should be honest and not claim or give the impression their phones would be any different regarding privacy from other Google infested ones. The only difference is the Fixit score and some materials (which is why I went for it). Just my 2 cents for the road ahead.
I cant even contact the fairphone support because they have Google (and facebook and Instagram … really fairphone???) running all over their website which of course any sane browser fully blocks. Quite disappointing. Therefore my little rant here in the hope it reaches fairphone at some stage and makes them rethink their approach to privacy.
