Hi, I’m Peter from Berlin, got my Fairphone 2 a few days ago and I really like it!
Switched to FP2 from an old & slowly dying Nexus S which I was using for more than 5 years(!)

Immediately installed FP Open to get rid of google, also Xposed, PMP & microG (for those apps that cling to that Big G)…

Cheers!

Bienvenue to the forum, @lblb! :wink: :fr:

Time to introduce myself as well.

I am Dietmar, the P at the end has no meaning, I am just not the first in this forum.

Got my Fairphone 2 yesterday (old black cover), switched directly to Fairphone Open because the usage of the device without Google was one of the reasons for choosing this mobile phone.

I am still in the process of installing the necessary apps, up to now I am quite happy (just the automatic brightness is a bit too dark for my eyes).
I am tracking my experience on my German homepage here: https://permondes.de/ikiwiki/de/Erhalten/Fairphone/ .

My location is München, so I hope I can make it to meet those people there next week.

Have a nice weekend
Dietmar

Welcom to the forum, @DietmarP !

You may move the brightness slider to the right which should also affect automatic brightness (it will be brighter under all conditions then).

Hello to everyone.

This is my time joining a forum, ever! So congrats :slight_smile:

Thank you to my friends on the continent for making this phone, I have never had a smart phone because of how Apple and others following what i believed to be an unfair and wasteful business model. I had looked at Fairphone/FP a good few years ago but it was actually just before they had launched fully so all were brand new and I was put off by the high price. Ideally i wanted a used (recycled) FP but the market wasn’t there yet so I went for a (used) Sony Ericsson Elm as it was according to research by O2 and others, one of the most eco friendly mobile phones on the market.

I finally got a second hand Fairphone 1, from the website CEX in the UK, for a xmas present in Dec 2016 and was very excited to start using it. Unfortunately my partner dropped it a couple of weeks later and cracked the screen so I decided to join the forum and ask some questions…

Thank you once again to everyone who made Fairphone possible and everybody involved in the movement

Hello lovely Fairphoners!

My name is Kelly and I am Fairphone’s Social Media Wizard. I’ve been working at Fairphone since October 2016 and although I reference the forum on our social platforms, I have never actually used it until today, so I’m happy to be here!

The Fairphone community is really one of a kind, which makes my job an awesome one because I get to interact with you all whenever you send us a message on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Hope you’re all having a good start of the week!

Best,

Kelly.

Hi @anon49920859,

talking about Facebook, please also have a look at diaspora, there are also big fans of Fairphone under the hash-tags: #wearefairphone and #fairphone . If you did not yet come across diaspora, have a look here: (Wikipedia).
