Fairphone two
cares about you!

Fairphone StaticSense™ detects any potentially harmful static charge on your body! Be it created by wearing swimming trunks, rain coats or winter jackets that are not made from fair and ecologically sourced hemp fibre, it will tell you by adding a “pop” sound to every video you take. Fairphone StaticSense™ needs no battery power but only the static energy detected on your body to create the pop sound. The more static, the more pop. Try rubbing your face with a plastic balloon then taking a video!

Fairphone SafeSound™ protects your ears! The Fairphoine speaker mode is as loud as other phones’ standard modes, preventing you from harming your eardrums by accidentally holding the Fairphone 2 to your ear while in speaker-mode or annoying people in the train because nobody will hear it.

Fairphone MindfulNow™ helps you relax and take it easy. This Fairphone 2 helps you slow down, take a deep breath while you wait.

Fairphone EfficientMeeting™ trains you to make your online video meetings and photo shoots quick and efficient as it does not allow charging the phone while the camera is active.

Fairphone NoFry™ ensures one of the lowest SAR values ever recorded on a smartphone at the time. This protects your body from too much non-ionizing radiation emitted by smartphones. In combination with MindfulNow™ it forces you to look up once in a while and experience the real world, as your Fairphone 2 struggles to keep up a signal where other phones keep their users’ attention fixed on screen as the data keeps on flowing.

Fairphone ExclusivePower™ helps you find the right charger. Only a select list of cables and charging devices fit the special fairness requirements of the Fairphone 2. Only the right combination of cable and charger will allow you to charge your Fairphone 2 and use the screen at the same time. Do you have what it takes to charge a Fairphone 2? Find out by buying mine!

Fairphone ExclusiveAudio™ helps you find the right headphones. Only a select list of headphones and headsets fit the special fairness and quality requirements of the Fairphone 2. Dont allow cheap, bad quality and unfairly produced headphones to kill your love for Music.

This is not a fun post. Maybe a tiny bit parodical. But the offer is serious.

You might want to include the equivalent price in euros.

Actually, you nailed it. The FP2 is a phone like no other…

Currently CHF 349.95 x .91 = the best part of 319 Euros

Special offer only whilst exchange rate lasts. Exchange rates are liable to fluctuation without warning ~ the phone may cost more or less tomorrow ~ take a gamble :slight_smile:

Except another FP2 :slight_smile:

Merci Alex. I want Swiss Francs (CHF) as that’s the money the country I live in uses in exchange for goods and services.
I have included a link to the current converstion on duckduckgo

The conversion rate is not only variable by time but by the bank.

If I pay CHF 349.95 to a Swiss account my bank will take whatever they see fit as a sum of the exchange rate they use plus any extra fee, so there is not a static equivalent value in Euros

Exactly. That’s how payment over changing currencies works.

For example, you take my offer, the bank converts it according to it’s own table, adds a fee to you and completes the transaction.

So if one would pay me in Euros, they’d have to include an additional fee which my bank will charge me for converting the Euros in Swiss Francs.
