Materials grown from conflict free zones
iPhone is better
No child labor
During production, some ores for the Fairphone are flown from China to the Czech Republic and back again only to be smelted.
Pioneer for fair production of smartphones
not all raw materials can be mined fairly
Android 4.2 (Fairphone 1)
costs very much
Recycled polycarbonate housing
Longer life / can be easily repaired
It is heavy
Designed to use it for a long time (spare parts readily available, etc. , no predetermined breaking point)
at what point are wages in China considered fair ? 130 euro per month is still quite little so far
Price-performance ratio poor
you can buy a used higher quality phone for the same price...
Two sim cards can be used through dual sim technology
quite thick housing
Individual parts -> easy to replace, as they are not glued together as in conventional smartphones
Much too small display
It is a sign for a better world
Small children sell their body for these raw materials
Production protects the environment
Raw materials and metals are mined either in poor countries (exploitation) or industrialized countries (allowing warlords to pay for (civil) wars)....
Purchase of Fairphone = sign for fairer manufacturing and living conditions
sustainability is not verifiable
Many people die in the countries where it is grown. The Fairphone supports that there is no war
Not a status symbol
you can convert it
buying a used smartphone is much more environmentally friendly
Consumers are being hoodwinked,as the smartphone is largely sourced from non-conflict zones...
humane working conditions
Who cares about the working conditions in the production countries...the workers can also go on strike
No child labor
it does not exactly promote the social standing of the owner
Better resolution than the iPhone 6s
IOS is better
Good working conditions
Much too expensive from the 700€ you can already buy an Iphone...
role model function for other smartphone manufacturers
mostly obsolete technologies
Clearly fairer than other phones!!!
For such a phone you can buy 2 mid-range Samsung smartphones
does not support child labor
Technically, the Fairphone is worse equipped than other "current" smartphones. For example, the looks are not quite as good as an iPhone, for example.
Geo thinks that the cell phone fits well in the pocket of the wallet
Weak performance in design...
In the production you save: money raw materials time
Need to invest more in marketing .
Better/fair payment for workers
Interchangeability of the individual parts
Cell phone was delivered in parts
Fairphone was manufactured in a non-capitalist environment, which is positive.
Child labor is not only in cell phone production but also in many other things like ball production...
Costs less than an IPhone, but the functions are just as good. I don't see any negative arguments here. I am on the side of the Fairphone.
Got iPhone 12 without headphones other dealers are also sustainable
Besser, als nichts. Zudem etwas mehr fair in Elektro-Geräten und das Erste
