Concerned by ecology, citizenship, social values, freedom, and free software, I had to come to Fairphone. I’ve ordered two (one for me, one for my wife). We have recieved one last week, and the next one will probably arrive by the end of august. All I have to say is that, even leaving the “fair” aspect aside, it is the best phone we both ever had. Strong, build to last, responsive, good looking, easy to use and with a very long lasting battery.
My wife use it with the “Google apps” package. I will use mine with AOSP and only free apps. So we will have an interesting comparison and feed back, with pretty much different combinations.
Btw, I loved Bas Van Abel’s TEDx Talk on “the right screwdriver”. I teach “sustainable design” in engeneering schools, and I often use it as an exemple.
I will not hesitate to recomend it to my friends.
