Thanks for all you and your collegues work. I don’t click on links that take me to third party websites especially survey types that who knows who will gather who knows what information.
A daughter of mine wanted a Fairphone as he works in the human rights scene and I thought the phone wouldn’t be good enough technically, so I bought it for her and joined the forum. She didn’t last with the phone and meanwhile I’d bought another to keep track of the ins and outs.
The fairtrade aspect is the only issue that draws me to the Fairphone and it’s so important to me, and was to my daughter, that I feel the need to support this business as I can, and that means trying to help others who have bought the phone.
More recently another daughter has bought the FP4 and I’ve heard no complaints from her.
I now/still have 2 FP3s around two years old and despite my daughter’s one taking a div in the toilet, just after she ‘bought’ it, both are working fine.
So supporting the community is supporting Fairphone and supporting Fairphone is supporting Fairtarde
It’s very simple in theory but it does takes quite some effort
Could you make this survey some kind of banner/headline/pop-up, so everyone gets notified when logging in?
This way, you might get more answers; especially from basic-users.
Otherwise this topic will drop down in the list of new topics and won’t show up on the first page(s) when visiting after a couple of days or even weeks.
… and my Firefox settings prevent to show any content I’d like to answer, as I think it’s important that we talk about what we really want (if’s that possible within the survey), but why should I accept cookies/scripts/etc. which I routinely block everywhere else? I do not have the time to research whether the umpteenth server serving java, fonts, cookies, etc. is trustworthy.
I was attracted to Fairphone by the sustainability (repairability) aspect, I very much like the fair (as much as possible; I was shocked by a recent documentary seeing that Fairphones are still assembled by Chinese migrant workers who see their children twice a year), and the killer aspect is FPOOS - getting rid of surveillance.
Thanks for the great suggestion @BertG and to @Volker for already going ahead! Really appreciate it!
An update here is that we already have 80 responses And with the survey now being pinned we hope to get even more!
There was a question asking whether, if you’re an active member, what you consider the most important use of this forum. If I’d considered myself “active” I definitely would have answered “solidarity with other FP2 users”.
