As far as I'm concerned, if you want a good camera, go out and buy a GOOD CAMERA, not a silly phone!!They also promise to support the phone with android updates longer than other brands. And they guarantee good conditions for the workers.
All this comes at a cost. The phone isn't as compact as for instance the Samsungs, camera is not as good, no support for wireless charging... For what it costs you definitely can get better and more exciting phones. But that's not the point. They don't make a top tier phone. They make a phone that is (more than) good enough (for most users, methinks), and built to last for a very long time. For some users that's what's important. NB! I don't judge anybody. If for instance you want/need a very good camera, you should no doubt go for one of the other phones.

PS. The current model is Fairphone 4. Spare parts are still readily available for nr 2, which was released in 2015. DS.
Might be a good idea (everything comes with a wifi connection these days). Let's just hope they don't make them as small as a phone.It would be interesting if camera vendors allowed customers to make phone calls with their products.
I'm only concerned by how weird it will feel (and look) when I'll talk into the chunky camera lens.Might be a good idea (everything comes with a wifi connection these days). Let's just hope they don't make them as small as a phone.
pibbuR who might speak when using his SLR device. But only locally, to get rid of unwanted humans obscuring the target.
Now he knows how horses feel with these ... what's the word ? These leather things covering parts of their eyes when in public, sometimes ...I'm only concerned by how weird it will feel (and look) when I'll talk into the chunky camera lens.
I saw a guy using his 10" tablet to make a phone call while walking, and it didn't look very comfortable. He had to turn his head all the time because the tablet was obstructing his view on one side.
(I'm sure there are connected coffee machines too.)
Blinkers or blinders, depending where you live (Europe or US). From there, 'blinkered' is to have a limited range of outlook, e.g. 'to have a blinkered attitude'.Now he knows how horses feel with these ... what's the word ?

The article says gamma rays are used.Gamma rays have so much penetrating power that several inches of a dense material like lead, or even a few feet of concrete may be required to stop them. Gamma rays can pass completely through the human body; as they pass through, they can cause ionizations that damage tissue and DNA.

Smoke detectors, gas lanterns, luminous paint, iPhones... Home sweet home.We already have radioactive material in our homes. Ionization smoke detectors (common in Norway at least) contain the synthetic radioactive metal americum. This one emits alfa particlles, unable to penetrate our skin.
And I also have a bismuth crystal, originally believed to be non-radioactive. Turns out that it is emittining alpha particles. However, alpha particles from outside the body aren't particularly dangerous. That, and a half life of about 2*10^19 years (a billion times longer than the age of the universe) makes me not too worried.Smoke detectors, gas lanterns, luminous paint, iPhones... Home sweet home.
