Fairphone is a Dutch smartphone manufacturer that's devoted to producing durable and honest phones. In August 2019, they launched the third generation, the Fairphone 3, a smartphone that, like its predecessors, distinguishes itself in terms of sustainability. You can consider the Dark Translucent colour a transparent black, so you can actually see the various parts of the phone.
Because this is a modular device, many parts can be replaced separately, which contributes to the Fairphone's durability. The device features a good camera, a battery that's quickly charged thanks to Quick Charge, and a 5.65-inch screen. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie, so you'll be able to use the phone right away!
The Dutch company Fairphone was founded in 2010, and they want to produce the most honest smartphones. For example, the company checks the origins of the base materials: are they durable, where do they come from, and under what working conditions do the people who process the base materials work?
Fairphone is mainly focused on the environment and sustainability, and that shows in the devices they've produced in the past. The first Fairphone was launched in 2013, and the second one appeared two years later. Now, it's time for the Fairphone 3 in a Dark Translucent colour, a phone that clearly shows Fairphone's policy.
Fairphone once again focuses on the environment, and it shows in the materials they've used. Half of the plastic used in the phone is recycled, and all materials come from conflict-free areas. The device also comes with a TCO certificate, which is a label for sustainable IT products.
The sustainable smartphone is modular, which means that it consists of various separate parts that can be disassembled. These modules are easily replaced, so you won't have to buy an entirely new phone if one of the parts doesn't work properly anymore. This all fits in with the underlying idea of the company: your device will last much longer, and you won't throw it out as fast.
This applies to a lot of the parts, including the screen, camera, and battery. The back of the device is partly transparent, so you can see the various modules. This perfectly reflects Fairphone's transparent way of thinking!
You'll find an 8-megapixel camera on the front of this black Fairphone 3, which shoots fun selfies and allows you to make video calls. On the back, a 12-megapixel camera is fitted that shoots good photos. You can also record 4K videos with this camera!
You won't have to worry about your Fairphone 3 filling up too quickly. The smartphone comes with a standard 64GB of memory, so there's enough space to store your photos and films. If you do run out of space, there's room for a memory card.
You can also choose this Fairphone if you want to use two different phone numbers. That's because this device has room for both a memory card and a second SIM card. This may come in handy if you want to keep your work and private life separate!
The battery of this device can also be replaced. It has a 3060mAh capacity that will get you through a day of average use. If it does run out of power, your Fairphone will be charged in no time thanks to Quick Charge technology.
Out of the box, the Fairphone 3 Black runs on Google's user-friendly software called Android 9.0 Pie. You'll have direct access to Google services like Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Maps. You can reorganise your phone by downloading apps and games from the Google Play Store.
