The Fairphone was quietly put on pre-order last year for an initial European-only run of 25,000 units. It promised to break the cycle of exploitative manufacturing processes, make pricing transparent, and focus on user features rather than planned obsolescence of most consumer electronics. At €325 (around $450) off-plan, it’s about the same price as a Nexus 5 in the UK (we have silly taxes, remember). Is it any good though?
