Fairphone 5 User reviews and opinions

Thomas . 8 month(s) ago

i find it hard to believe the battery would be none removable as the whole ethos of fairphone is the longevity of its devices and the impacts it has on the planet in the long run. that is why all fairphone are modular so there easier to repair and keep running for far longer that a none modular phone. i would seriously consider buying the fairphone 5 there are just a few small things putting me off making a commitment. 1. charging speed 20w is just way to slow for modern times should be at least 25w like most Samsung phone. 2. battery capacity should be at least 4500 mAh as alot of high end devices are now reducing capacity so the devices can be thinner. 3. must have a micro sd card slot as again most manufacturers have removed it which is a shame a big shame. if fairphone make a fp 5 and it has all these upgrades i would gladly give them a try.
