I heard about /e/ recently and really like what I see, specially the 2020 roadmap and the /e/ OS pre-installed phones. However I do have a few questions regarding the later:
- Why only have refurbished phones available?;
- Also, if you are going to sell refurbished phones S7s, why make them so expensive? You can buy new phones with better specs for less than 200€;
- Why only 1 year warranty?
I am asking these questions not for myself (If I had to buy a new phone right now I would probably buy one of /e/s S7s), but for the average/casual consumer. If you want to make privacy the default you have to provide a service as good (or almost as good) as the competition.
Anyway, this is just my initial impression to the project, take these comments as constructive criticism. I am actually trying to sell one of your phones to a friend of mine haha =)
