I have had my Fairphone 2 for almost 2 years and am incredibly satisfied. Released with Android 5 but can now run Android 7 from the manufacturer (with or without Google Play services), Lineage as Android 8 as well as Sailfish OS 3. Several good options so instead of just having to settle for what is there, it becomes difficult to choose ! The hardware is modular, screen change is completely tool-free and is easier than changing the battery on another phone, the USB connector is on a small module and costs very little to change if it starts to slip and the shell is enough so no extra case is needed. A phone that is built to last for as many years as possible, and seems to do so as well. Both in hardware and software. In addition, it must be seen in its context of being one of very few mass-produced electronics products that focus on what it means for the climate (avoiding conflict minerals) and those who produce it. Values that should be shared by all electronics and mass production!

I can not recommend anyone to buy a Fairphone. The phone simply does not work satisfactorily. The first phone I bought, I had to send back after a couple of months due to several serious errors, such that the SIM card could not be found and locked so that it could only be restarted by opening and removing the battery. The other is also not good when it hangs over and starts over several times a day and on occasional occasions must be opened to restart. I do not experience the big size as a problem, but the battery life is not good. The user interface is understandable, and it is an advantage that there is room for memory cards and dual SIM cards. Conclusion: Had the phone worked as thought, it would have been okay, or even good. But now it's - unfortunately - untrue.
