Well, at some point this was to be expected. However, I do think that seven years is indeed a very good result, considering many vendors don’t even provide more than 1-2 years of updates.

I guess they need the resources still working on the FP2 for other “projects”, so its a bit sad, still completely understandable.

If they would transfer the in-house software development from the Fairphone 2 to the Fairphone 5, it would be a win for the Fairphone 5 in my book.
How they go about issues and updates on the Fairphone 2 seems to me to work out better overall than the outsourcing done for the successors.

Rossmann has found comprehensive schematics for the Fairphone 4 on the Fairphone website, which he likes.
I wasn’t aware of their existence, when were they uploaded? And is there something similar for the Fairphone 3?

Check your forum… I’ve just read a recent post of someone wanting to repair their FP2… most parts NOT available in the FP shop… the irony!

Don’t blame me :wink: I’m just sharing an article.

Yes I’ve seen ~ yet much like the Fairphone I wouldn’t recommend either to any :cry:

  • Everyone ‘could’ watch :question:
  • Most phone users are busy taking selfies :slight_smile:
  • Some people already know and don’t want to be reminded :see_no_evil:
  • Some Fairphone owners may look at it and feel uncomfortable :scream: :
  • A few users wish they weren’t consumesr where anyone and anything suffers at their expense. :om:
  • Not a single person will stop exploitation. :
