One camera is fine just make it better and add a better screen and a faster CPU more RAM more memory. I would pay a thousand dollars knowing I can replace everything that goes bad for the next 10 years.

It's cool, but I'd be anxious about accidentally breaking it. They should make the next one out of metla

I'm always unlucky with the release dates of these phones being only one or two years after I bought another phone. So when they got released, I already had a decent working phone (especially now with Blackberry KeyOne Black from 2018), and when I needed a new one the last generation of Fairphones is slightly outdated (about in last quarter of production cycle). For now I just hope my Blackberry is going to last some more years! btw this channel helped making my decision on it ;)

Now all manufacturers need to come to stabdarts agreement and we can build our own phones.

I once read that some parts can take up to months for getting a replacement part. Can someone who has the phone and had to do replacements share more insight on this? Very nice concept, but hard to recommend the phone with such a caviat

I don't use fair phone but lyf brand can change any components use wish very cheaply otherwise phone are quite use and throw due lack of motherboard or screen or sim tray.

As an electronic technician specialised in repairing smaller electronics specifically: This, this is what we need in the world not more glue and more components you can barely take apart without breaking shit left right and center even if you do know what you are doing. This is how shit should be done these days, we are already drowning in electric waste that is too expensive to repair.

I like it, but there are some issues that get frustrating. The screen becomes less responsive over the course of a day, and requires a reset to regain normal responsiveness. I’ve also got a weird issue with sound balancing: it’s like the phone has an inverse sound balancing feature. If the sound of a music track or video gets quieter, the phone will decide to bump down the volume a little; if it gets louder, the phone will bump up the volume a little. It’s a strange thing. Other than that, it’s a good phone. I’d like something smaller, but I guess that’s hard to do with the modular features.

Google: We can't pull off Project Ara. Something about magnets. Fairphone: Fine, I'll do it myself.

Ara was going to be way more modular than the fairphone. plus no need to remove 20 screws first. try to upgrade ram, storage or the soc, oh wait, you cant

Thumbs up to Fairphone for implementing the concept and Jerry for his super cool videos. Could be awesome if consumers can choose some components of the phone based on their usage. For example the company can provide 2 or 3 options on the components say a battery of 3500 mah or 4500 mah, screen size of 5 inch or 6 inch etc...

I'm used to older models of smartphones and I didn't even realise that the batteries are now glued in place until I found this channel. My old phone had a bad battery and sometimes I'd take it out and pop it back in to make it work, weirdly bummed that I can't do that anymore Edit: I remember now that the SD and SIM cards were *inside* the phone, blocked by the battery, so you really were meant to be able to easily remove the back and battery. I've had my current phone for a couple of years and i still don't know how it opens up (though I guess that's a good thing)

i had to replace the screen on my s8 last year... took me 2 hours and was a total pain in the ass, still worth it to me over this to have a flagship. if you break your phone all the time this might make sense but to me 2 hours of maintenance and 170$ over 3 years is a small price to pay for what i got out of it.

Android is just too open with no focus on a specific architecture, Gameboy should have been a lesson on how this is done. Instead they focus on the brute strength of the Phone processing power. Fair phone partnered with one of the other OS’s targeted at it's hardware and made the experience long lived.

This concept is what all phones should be. If I want to have the highest end looking phone with cheap components I should be able. If I want a cheap simple phone with the best components I should be able. If I want a mix for the best value I should be able. I really don’t care much about having cameras on my phone. Just having one or two decent is perfectly fine. I want tons of ram, a fast cpu, a bunch of nvme storage, a big battery, a high res high refresh screen, WiFi 6, and thunderbolt 4/usb4. I want it to be a smaller phone like the iPhone mini. No bezels, no chin, with a touch button under the glass that doubles as finger print. That’s my perfect phone. Add a tempered glass covered e-ink display on the back to save battery and let you pick different designs. Would be even better if it was a full color e-ink display.

Well even if it is not the most high tech phone, its good to see someone think about repairability. If you are younger, or older, or even in business, its a good way to have and keep a phone device cheap, and you have a working phone. Simple to change anything, you can upgrade. It wont spread in the usa, or any wealthier country, but in third world countries i think it can, if they advertising it enough.

"abnormally reasonable" Yes indeed. There's something particularly unhealthy about the mainstream obselescenc-by-design philosophy. It doesn't have to be that way and there are plenty of companies in other markets that try to support their products for a long time. You wouldn't treat your new friends like that ( I know we've only just met but I'm going to screw you for every penny and then ignore you after two years) unless you were a psychopath. I haven't tried the Fairphone yet but I have a Teracube phone and the software is "abnormally reasonable" too. Setting it up was a pleasure because it didn't try to persuade me to get a manufacturer specific ID or install desktop or security software (first 3 months free only £1/ month after that etc).

I wish you would talk about the customer service- I have had massive problems with my Fairphone- it takes about 5 days until someone gets back to you- or even longer. I totally regret my purchase,. What use is a relatively fair phone if essential functions do not work.

Thank you for this video, when my phone dies in a year or two, I will get a Fairphone! :)
Gysberthony Bokkothan
I like the concept, but I have read in long term reviews that some of the components are unreliable and malfunction more than average. They have to replace the parts sometimes within a year after purchase. Making the phone potentially not better for the environment because you have to replace parts often. I am not sure if this is true, it is just what I read on some forums. Maybe someone here has experience with that?
