first of all: I’m a big fan of the Fairphone project and a proud owner of the FP 2. If there would be FP3 already available, I would be the first one ordering it (and hope for improvements…)
However: Reliability of the FP has always been an issue and it is not getting better. The issue for me is that I am travelling a lot and I might be more in need of a well working system than others (or someone who is technically able to put some work into that). The phone still works fine beside some battery-hassle even after 3 years.
From my personal economic perspective, it makes sense to sell the (working) fairphone now and arrange a (used) replacement for the next years until hopefully a Fairphone 3 comes around while someone else benefits from a rather cheap used FP 2 which woud increase its life-span. Therefore I consider this also to be a rather sustainable option.
Questions: Does my argument regarding sustainability makes sense? Or is there any better way to deal with this? Right now I only see the other option to keep the FP until it dies and then get a replacement.
