Number of Fairphone devices produced/sold?


#5

True, but would not it be interesting how many Fairphone devices were sold to consumers?


#6

Interresting! Thus the February’17 “125.000 modular phones” should correspond to FP1+FP2, so if we assume 60.000 FP1 this gives us 65.000 FP2 :slight_smile:


#7

A combined total of 135000 Fairphone owners (60 000 FP1 + 75000 FP2) was confirmed in September 2017, as @paulakreuzer suggested. Cannot link to a public source though.


Great things ahead? (8th May '18 -> Transparent Slim Covers)
Sales Fairphone 1 and Fairphone 2
#8

So from the numbers we got we can assume that about 3000 FP2s are sold a month if everything goes well. We also know everything didn’t go well the past months and private customers still can’t order phones atm.


#9

Indeed ! I’m afraid we are still far away from world domination:wink:


#10

Well, everyone can order phones. Just not directly from Fairphone.com


#11

You can say that again! According to the map, there is no dealer in Austria (except T-Mobile) that offers the Fairphone 2 at the moment:

That’s still quite an impressive dealer-density:


#13

You queried shops and showrooms, but currently there is only one dealer in Austria if I am not mistaken.

OpenOS
ubPorts
LineageOS

PS: Now if we were to assume that the relation between Sailfish and Ubuntu installs is somehow similar to what this poll suggests (which it’s probably not - but anyway), then the comparison between the OSes would look something like that:

PPS: Ok obviously I still have to adjust Open OS, since it wasn’t even out since the beginning… updated


#15

I guess the blue curve of the first diagram shows the amount of Fairphone 2’s sold from end of 2015 until now, right?


#16

Unlike UbuntuTouch, the Sailfish port is not yet adapted to the Android6 base, for the new screen compatibility (mal is working on it). So in my opinion you can put a constant value for SFOS since the new screen release (mid '17) :slight_smile:


#17

Hey, don’t remind me that the French shops are still missing… :sweat: @Esmee sent them to me half a year ago…


Link to the official store locator is here btw: https://www.fairphone.com/en/store-locator/

There are indeed no stores listed in Austria… Seems that T-Mobile was not too eager to get them back in stock.

Edit: It’s not even available in the T-Mobile online shop anymore: https://shop.t-mobile.at/archive/voice/fairphone-2-v2-rot-2308


#18

They are offering it with a white case now:

https://shop.t-mobile.at/product/handy-mit-vertrag/fairphone-2-v2-weiss-dual-sim-2309

But it seems the Fairphone is not available without (already having) a T-Mobile tariff contract, and customers living in Austria would have to buy the phone at a different dealer outside Austria if they want to get it without (an additional) tariff rate.


#19

Indeed! I’ll send them an email.

Yep, that’s probably true. I’ll ask that too. :slight_smile:

PS.: CC @werner_noebauer Hab Franzi geschrieben, falls es sie überhaupt noch bei T-Mobile gibt. :wink:


#20

You can also get some number estimates from phone-specific apps in the Play Store, but it discounts people who don’t use these such as microG and LOS users.


#21

I know from a Fairphoner in South Tiroly who went to the T-Mobile Austria shop in Innsbruck last year to buy a Fairphone 2 without a contract.


#22

When last year? As I said before, the official Fairphone store locator does not show any T-Mobile Austria shops anymore. So my assumption is that they only have the in their online shop.


#23

A little correction: I checked the details now – it was in November 2016.
