Fairphone and the story of the smartphone that wanted to be different

fairphone-2-repair

The original Fairphone was really a fair phone, but this second generation model goes even further. This is a phone that defies Project Ara and other modular concepts.

Owners can replace the screen, the microphone, the speaker, the camera, and the main circuit board using nothing more complicated than a screwdriver, with all the replacement parts available directly from Fairphone

You can get not only replacement parts, but upgrades such as a better camera. I wonder, though, if the logistic platform from this company can really meet the expectations of its user base.

Not bad for a phone that is not really cheap from its looks (525 €) but that is definitely a bargain for what it offers. Smartphones can really be different.
