Fairphone

Fairphone is a smartphone designed with ecological and ethical issues foremost in mind.

Fairphone features an Android OS, a quadcore processor, 16GB built-in storage, 8 MP front/1.3MP back cameras and a 4.3-inch qHD screen. The phone makes it possible for users to perform many service tasks and replace their own batteries. Dual SIM cards allow two people to share the phone, or allow a single user to switch between work and home use.
