Fairphone 4 seems to be offered in the US through a company called Murena. Looks like a solid option. https://murena.com/murena-fairphone-4-is-now-available-in-the-usa/

I mean, what about FP5, or GApps?

[-] wclinton93 1 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

As far as I can tell the 5 isn't offered in the US yet. Murena uses e/os (a sort of de-googled android os), so apps like gmail are not native. They say that their store pulls from the google play store though, so any apps you've gotten through that should be compatible.

Is it any good? My pixel 7 pro was only 100 euro more than this, so I'd expect a lot for 700€

Depends on what you're looking for. It's storage is expandable up to 2 TERABYTES, Gives Android updates for almost 10 years from what I remember ( these updates will be supported even after their chip manufacturer, Qualcomm stops support). An additional bonus is that since all of their parts are available to buy at a fairly cheap price, you don't have to spend that much money all time trying to replace the screen or the speaker or any other part of the phone. UNLIKE my Pixel 7 pro that costs fucking $350 to replace its screen.

The price mostly comes from actually paying fair prices for the materials and not using sweatshops.

The specs aren't something to write home about, but unless you are an avid phone gamer it shouldn't really matter.

But oh man, the repairability is through the roof. Replacing your usb-c port is literally 15€ and 10 minutes of work. Even for a non-techy.

And you can still buy Fairphone 2 parts directly from their store, 7 years after it launched.

You also get 5 years of warranty.

The only way this phone is going to die is if it is shredded to pieces.
