Reviews for the Fairphone 2

80% Fairphone 2 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Good conscience. Fairphone's 2 promotes fair labor conditions and sustainability rather than exploitation and waste. With its unique, to the smartphone world, modular design that easily allows replacing components, the 5-inch Android takes a different approach than its rivals in all other aspects, as well.
