We’re getting closer and closer to the Android 7 release
But before we bring the update to thousands of Fairphone 2 owners, we hope to get feedback from you, our amazing community.
This is an open call to anyone who wants to test the Android 7 Release Candidate for Fairphone 2.
We currently have a release candidate ready, and if you want to help, your insights are very important for helping us make a better, more reliable software. We want to continue expanding the successful cooperation between our developers and the community
What is the plan?
The plan is simple: test the release candidate and if the results are positive then we can have liftoff and share the version with all Fairphone 2 owners.
Who is this open call for?
Anyone can apply, but we are specifically looking for people who:
- Own a Fairphone 2
- Can explain Fairphone updates to their 8-year-old nephew
- Have a backup of their data before testing
- Want to support Fairphone in their journey to fairer electronics

What are possible downsides?
Android 7 brings many changes. Not everyone might like all these changes. Additionally, there are some known issues which will be addressed in future maintenance releases.
You need to consider if you mind the changes in Android 7 and can live with the known problems because switching back from Android 7 to Android 6 is only possible by wiping all data from the phone. That means any data you would like to keep needs to be transferred manually when going back to Android 6.
