I started out very keen on the Fairphone idea but they are just not making it work in practise.
The hardware is unreliable. I have just developed the second identical fault with the screen on my fairphone 2, i.e. 1 side of the screen going dead. The back case has split open.
With mobile data, location services and bluetooth on all the time the battery lasts about half a day.
Support is just not working It took nearly 3 months to fix the fault the first time I had this problem including a number of weeks without the phone. I had to telephone support before anything happened and it appeared my replacement screen had just been forgotten.
Really not impressed and very…very close to buying a panasonic.
