Has fairphone said anything about trying to get fairphone parity in the US?

With how big the smartphone market is and with how much reparibility is becoming a bigger focus.

I'd love to get fairphone 5

I just got an email from Fairphone that something new is coming on the 09.05 - a whole new category.

My hot take is on a tablet. What do you think?

Edit: so the whole new category is earbuds. Somewhat disappointing, but replaceable batteries for earbuds are nice, I guess.

Hey,

tried to find something nicer than the standard cases for the fairphone 5. But with very little success. Do you have a go to service for that?

So I got a crazy #idea for #Fairphone ... Would be fun if some one could proxy this idea to the official folks there. @gael, @WeAreFairphone, @fairphone ?

Fairphones has a replaceable battery. Sometimes I would like to have a spare battery with me, to replace on-the-fly. In some situations, that is more convenient than to have the extra "dongle" known as an external USB battery pack.

The challenge is: How do you charge them? Back in the old phone days, you could have desk chargers for spare batteries. Another challenge: How do you carry external batteries safely?

So I got this crazy idea. Combine those two challenges! With an additional twist!

What if there was a portable "box" which could carry up to two Fairphone batteries, with a USB-C port to charge them. But! Let it also function as a USB-C battery pack which can be used with Fairphones (via cable) or other USB devices.

That gives you a portable battery charger, battery carry case for 2 batteries and a 3905 or 7810mAh OTG battery pack (based on FP4 batteries, depending on if 1 or 2 batteries are present).

If these cases can be designed to support more FP battery generations, you get something which could even be quite sustainable.

Hello there!

I was wondering how you guys have experienced the Android 13 update on the Fairphone 4. I heard, it was somewhat buggy and haven't updated because of that. But I would like to update, so I thought I ask you about your experiences.

Thank you and merry Christmas to you all!

Hello everybody! I'm looking for a sturdy and robust case, but I can't seem to find anything. I know that there is the good ol' official Fairphone Soft case, but I absolutely hate it. My phone often slips out of it when laying on the screen, and it feels like it doesn't even protect the phone. I know that I could just replace the screen if it were broken, but in the long term, a case would be more effective.

Is there any case around that is like This or a little less extreme like this?

Thanks in advance!

I'm considering getting an fp4 as an upgrade for my s21. Although I was wondering if its worth the money or not. should I just wait for fp5 to go down in price. Should I not go for a fp entirely and instead seek some better value alternatives I am after all on a very tight budget.

What OS to run on fp4 (sh.itjust.works)
submitted 9 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I am looking at getting a fp4. (Pretty seriously, I am typing this on an older phone because I listed my newer phone on eBay to switch) I want a good, privacy focused operating system to run on it and was wondering what you all run and what your experiences have been. My main concerns are:

  1. Support - I don’t want my operating system maintained by just 1 or 2 random people on github.

  2. Features - I want the basic stuff to work but am concerned about the fingerprint sensor and cameras.

  3. Privacy - I want something ideally completely degoogled.

  4. Stability - I don’t know much about android but I use Debian lts if that tells you anything about the kind of update schedule I want.

I know this is a lot to ask of an os but do you have any recommendations?

I'm aware that the camera won't be the best, but I'd guess they should atleast match?

I am looking for a new phone. Coming from the Sony midrangers, because they have a headphone jack. I love the FP philosophy. I don't see their devices having headphone jacks, though. Is there any talk of that being introduced?

Just noticed a funny bug, if I place my phone (FP4) on my work badge, it buzzes and then reboots to some "can't boot android, do you want to factory reset? y/n" screen. Anyone else seen this problem? Is it a feature maybe?

I just opened a map and it's off by >45° again. Doing a calibration makes it a good bit better but still quite jerky and rotating the device 90° (i.e. using a wall for reference) still does not result in a 90° turn in the compass.

Does anyone else experience this? Please include the ROM and version used.

Edit: Should have mentioned this is a FP4. Other FPs are entirely different hardware.
