I have just gifted a fairphone 2 to my girlfriend for her birthday. We both love the ideas behind fairphone and we have decided to try it out.
I have always been a power user and have mostly owned top of the line phones.
Recently though i’ve had a rough experience with my Samsung Note 3, especially with GPS issues. In short… the GPS has had problems for over a year and barely works when it does at all.
What I want to ask is… What if the GPS of the fairphone 2 breaks? Is it part of the mainboard, meaning that i’d have to spend a lot of money to change it or is it part of a smaller module?
And now that i’m looking into buying a new phone I am scared at the lower specs of the fairphone 2 and I wonder if there will ever be any upgrade modules…
I think I know the answer to this and have been lurking around the forums a bit and see that it’s a concern to a lot of people.
I guess I just wanted to throw out my 2 cents. Mainly though… i’m interested in the fairphone 2 GPS and it’s replaceability. I’ve seen that a few people have had problems with it!
