    In from Germany an owne the FP3 for 1 Years. I the only problem in this time was that the connectors from the modules have disconnected sometimes. But the solution was pretty esey, just glue a little piece of stuff like a T-shirt over the connectors.

  • sontodosnarcos

    Great concept, but I won't buy one until they make the processor upgradable. In my opinion, that should be the very first upgradable component, otherwise one has to stick with old, insecure Android versions.

    Got it, love it, and will upgrade it for my birthday. Just the idea of being able to upgrade the hardware on a phone (not being the battery or storage)!

    A great phone - that may have been a close contender - had i known about it when i got my phone. I do wish they also had people that were better at design - so it would not look like a boring plastic brick. If you go sustainable and expensive for that reason .. you can also go for better materials like stainless steel and a bit more daring shapes and colours.

    The modular concept ist awesome, I wish it would become more common in the smartphone world. Imagine if you have the iPhone 11 and could just upgrade the camera to the iPhone 12 model. Now that would be environmentally friendly, you greedy Cupertino hypocrites.

  • Miles

    I really really like the idea but sadly it‘s just not up there. It has hardware from 2 years ago and the design is generic. If they would make a more premium version of it with the same idea I might be interested but as it stands today I have to pass on that one. But as always, great video. Thanks

    Waterproofing and a better camera and the other manufacturers will have to keep up. This is the type of innovation we need.

    Incredibly bad customer service with fairphone. Mine and the ones of two friends came in damaged (microphone not working properly, touchscreen malfunctioning etc.) Just send it back right? Wrong. The website states to get in touch with them per telephone or email and follow their instructions to get the refund. Sadly nobody answers the calls or emails. IN DAYS! wtf fairphone??? To scam the customers into a broken phone and deny refund. Never seen anything like this before. Avoid at all costs.

    so regarding the camera. i think its best to have just one good camera with one good lens. and maybe latest hardware.

  • Electronik-FArts

    well well well. im someone who buys gaming phones for a living and i might just buy this because of its modularity repairability and possible upgradability.

    If they could get less bezel, I’d buy it. I need a good phone that still has a removable battery

  • NotABerger _
    NotABerger _

    I think they should try to make it more modern because a $500 dollar phone should have things like multiple cameras and less bezels on the screen. Really the only two things that break on most phones are batteries and screens, and I think that they could make a version of this phone that makes both of those things very easily replaceable while still maintaining a more modern feature set.

    One camera is fine just make it better and add a better screen and a faster CPU more RAM more memory. I would pay a thousand dollars knowing I can replace everything that goes bad for the next 10 years.

    now you can back only the back panel and the side cover and like new again....

  • Logiarhythm

    I'm always unlucky with the release dates of these phones being only one or two years after I bought another phone. So when they got released, I already had a decent working phone (especially now with Blackberry KeyOne Black from 2018), and when I needed a new one the last generation of Fairphones is slightly outdated (about in last quarter of production cycle). For now I just hope my Blackberry is going to last some more years! btw this channel helped making my decision on it ;)

  • TheDude_59

    I once read that some parts can take up to months for getting a replacement part. Can someone who has the phone and had to do replacements share more insight on this? Very nice concept, but hard to recommend the phone with such a caviat

    I don't use fair phone but lyf brand can change any components use wish very cheaply otherwise phone are quite use and throw due lack of motherboard or screen or sim tray.

  • MarvelousSandstone

    As an electronic technician specialised in repairing smaller electronics specifically: This, this is what we need in the world not more glue and more components you can barely take apart without breaking shit left right and center even if you do know what you are doing. This is how shit should be done these days, we are already drowning in electric waste that is too expensive to repair.

  • David Gardiner
    David Gardiner

    I like it, but there are some issues that get frustrating. The screen becomes less responsive over the course of a day, and requires a reset to regain normal responsiveness. I’ve also got a weird issue with sound balancing: it’s like the phone has an inverse sound balancing feature. If the sound of a music track or video gets quieter, the phone will decide to bump down the volume a little; if it gets louder, the phone will bump up the volume a little. It’s a strange thing. Other than that, it’s a good phone. I’d like something smaller, but I guess that’s hard to do with the modular features.

  • elevatorz

    Google: We can't pull off Project Ara. Something about magnets. Fairphone: Fine, I'll do it myself.

    • Real Cyphox
      Real Cyphox

      Ara was going to be way more modular than the fairphone. plus no need to remove 20 screws first. try to upgrade ram, storage or the soc, oh wait, you cant


    this reminds me of old phone. when you dropped them on the floor and the back panel flew away and even the battery

    Thumbs up to Fairphone for implementing the concept and Jerry for his super cool videos. Could be awesome if consumers can choose some components of the phone based on their usage. For example the company can provide 2 or 3 options on the components say a battery of 3500 mah or 4500 mah, screen size of 5 inch or 6 inch etc...
