I don’t use fairphone yet but I am interested by the product and the easy repairs possibilities.
I just have some thoughts and suggestions about the fairphone 3 and 3+ hardware, and I wanted to make a feedback for the fairphone engineers.
I have an ISP in France that uses 700 Mhz 4G+ for his network (band 28). I was disappointed to see that Fairphone is not compatible with this frequency. It is a pity because it is the best frequency for the indoor 4G used by this ISP.
As most of the mobiles are now compatible with 28 band, it is disappointing to see fairphones without.
–> For the future phones, I suggest that engineers can check every 4G band used in EU and word and try to make it as compatible as possible.
Although the PH3+ is very good to me. I cannot buy a phone which cannot use my ISP 4G.
I also may suggest to switch to 5G for the next models. Even if it seems useless, it may have better power and frequency efficiency for the future (the main goal is to keep the phone as long as possible).
Have a great day
