My Fairphone 3 ticks all these boxes lol

[-] [email protected] 13 points 8 months ago

I wanted a FairPhone, but they have yet to sell officially in the US and I couldn't afford to deal with the potential difficulties involved with not having the right bands.

[-] FrankTheHealer 4 points 8 months ago

To me its a no brainer for them to start selling in the US. Brands like Framework are getting a lot of hype for their reparability and longevity. Being a mobile brand stepping in to offer a smartphone to compliment Framework's laptops could be fantastic. Plus there's a wave of people demanding right to repair legislation in the US, Fairphone would do well to harness that I think.

Custom ROMs should be first on the list

[-] [email protected] 8 points 8 months ago

Just ordered the 5 despite them removing the audio jack... Yeah I'm a bit salty about that

My ultimate phone would be a fairphone with audio jack, fingerprint reader, sd slot, and support for custom roms like calyxos. I would buy that in an instant.

[-] FrankTheHealer 3 points 8 months ago

Again, Fairphone 3 ticks all those boxes. Though I'm not 100% about Calyxos. I know it can run LineageOS or /e/OS instead of stock android. If it can run those, its likely that it can do Calyxos too.

The only thing that it doesn't do from that list is the audio jack.

[-] FrankTheHealer 4 points 8 months ago

Yeah I know what you mean. At the very least, you can get a dongle and use aux headphones that way, but we shouldn't have to ffs

Samsung's industrial smartphone line checks all boxes still

[-] [email protected] 2 points 8 months ago

Even custom ROM? Genuinely wondering.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 8 months ago

Not a lot of ROM development that I can see unfortunately

I just upgraded to it the other day from /e/OS which was on Android 11 I think.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 8 months ago

Unfortunately, 1080p 60fps LCD display is way too bad for me to consider it.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 8 months ago

Is it the LCD display? I don't even have a monitor on my PC that's better than 1080p 60Hz should be fine for a phone

[-] [email protected] 1 points 8 months ago

There's a noticeable difference in higher framrates in phones even on general usage.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 8 months ago

Fairphone 5 has 1224x2700 90 Hz

[-] [email protected] 2 points 8 months ago

We are talking about fairphone 3 though? And fairphone 5 has really shit battery life, no headphone jack and a mediocre at best camera for it's price point.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 8 months ago

Bruh what kind of extra special eyes do you have 😳

As a sidenote I do find it funny that my FP3 can record at 120fps... more than the built in display's framerate lol
