are the phones with better specs required for your daily use?
Maybe not, but I prefer to invest 200 € in a phone with 4 GB than 525 € plus shipment cost in a phone with 2 GB: in my opinion it will work better in two years and in concecuence prolong it useffull life. Four years ago the 1 GB of FP1 looked enough and now it has become insufficient.
For me not, also don’t mix up prices of the actual phone and prices with you “buy” with higher contract costs of your telco provider.
It’s possible to find free and competitive phones.
One important fact for me is also the bloatware many phones contain. Some may even come with spyware. I am happy to use Fairphone instead!
+ 1 pro
How would we know, if it’s a surprise? Hahaha
A new core
That will give me more confidence in the possibility that Fairphone release officially Android 8 since they will have better opportunities
I agree that Fairphone achievements with FP2 are incredible and said a lot about their compromise aginst techonology obsolescence and with FP2 owners.
But that tendency probably couln’t continue indefinitely and maybe if bought a FP2 in two year I would have an Android SO with no support (2 years ago Android 4.4 ran in 31,6 % of Android phone and today only in 10 %)
Thanks for the tips!
If I it weren’t for the performance issues and knew how much time I should buy I would try, but currently the performance is sometimes desperating.
Understandable, but I’m honestly curious now about which phone you want to buy if you would have to buy it right now in this moment.
I would by a device with Android One. It would give a few years of update and a pure Android
awesome community that gives great support
Related: If and when Fairphone can no longer provide security updates for the FP2 then the community probably will (for one or more OSes).
I need more than a probbably
It’s a storytelling device. If you put it screen down with a transparent cover on it you can be sure 9 out of 10 times someone will ask you about it and you get the opportunity to brag about how fast you can disassemble your phone.
That is cool, but better not because I’m a little clumsy and probably I will ended loosing a screw
