Replied in PM - good luck with the thesis! If you need ‘live’ interviews with FP-users, feel free to react in PM too.


Sent you a PM. Good luck!

Can you tell me how I can send you a PB

You can’t send a PM right after joining, you have to browse the forum for 10-15 minutes, and you get a promotion to level 1 or 2 or whatever it is - and then you can send PMs. @anthroo can send you a PM right away, however, and then you can reply.


I’ll send you a pm then :slight_smile:

Hi Wicher,

I hope you don’t mind that I edited your post to remove the phone number. This is a public forum, so anyone can read it and publishing your phone number is a very bad idea.


Good topic! In case you haven’t found it yet, you might check out this older thread for more samples that overlap with your questions:

So far I have seen two other Fairphones in the wild, both times because their cover was the same color as mine (coral FP2). Once in the metro here in Paris, once on the top of a tower in Berlin.

Like @JeroenH, I will reply by private message.

This is fascinating.
If you want to answer the thread author questions do not read this before, but: @anthroo, there was some people in How big are the FP3 niches? who were asking questions about the niche aspect of the Fairphone. Maybe they’ll be glad to discuss with you?
I do not own a Fairphone (yet) but I am very curious about your thesis. I will be very glad to have the opportunity to read it when finished! (If it is translated to english someday)
Until then, courage for your thesis!

I can answer in a public way:


deleted due to the plausible objection of BertG.


I’ve always strived to buy the most environmentally friendly products possible. This was my first ever smartphone, so I’m not in a position to compare its functionality to anything else. Although I was taken aback by how much charging it requires.

One main reason for answering by PM besides privacy issues is

It is a known fact, that people are likely to be biased by previous statements, as many tend to agree rather than to disagree (avoiding conflicts).


@BertG: I searched once again but I don’t find the function to send a PM, sorry. Can you give me a hint?

You click on the avatar of the user you want to PM.
In the top-right hand corner of the pop-up window, you will find the button “Message” with an envelope as symbol.
All the best!

Hi again,

As I have finished my thesis, the people who participated by providing insights in my inbox are very welcome to read it if they want to! It is in english.

Just write me if you want to read it and I’ll send it to you :slight_smile:
