Reviews for the Fairphone 3

Fairphone 3 hands-on: Modular, repairable, five years of support. What gives?
Source: Android Authority English
For Android fans, the Fairphone 3 is nothing like the shiny new device we usually see. It’s about a completely open and fixable modular phone, it’s about freedom to repair your own product, actual spare parts, and fair, ethically-sourced components. The specs are good enough, but definitely not great. Is it a bargain? No. Think of it this way: Have you been to shops where they sell goods made locally and decided you should support people, not big business? Maybe you have, even if you only bought soap. It’s the same concept.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
