I intend to buy a pair of Fairphones with /e/ preinstalled, and I’m hesitating between the brand-new Fairphone 3+ and last year’s Fairphone 3.
Aside fro a back cover with more recycled plastic, I can see the main difference between them lies in the new imaging system, which now has more pixels than the separate, dedicated camera I’m used to! -so that is not, in my case, a significant reason.
As the price difference is 50€, for two phones I’m quite inclined to save 100€.
The only worry I have is the following : will the /e/ team continue updating/correcting the OS for the ‘old’ Fairphone3 series, or will them be pushed by a much larger user base to focus on the 3+, one being (if I understand correctly) on Android 9 and the other on Android 10?
Any clue on this would be very welcome, all the more that I see FP3pluses start being delivered tomorrow
