6-year-old Fairphone 2 gets Android 10 update

6-year-old Fairphone 2 gets Android 10 update

How long does a mobile phone last? As long as it works, but also as long as it is maintained. The latter sometimes falls short. Not at Fairphone because they updated their 6-year-old Fairphone 2 to Android 10. Unique!

Almost two years ago we wrote a letter with a really unique title: “At five years old Verfone 2 It gets an update to Android 9″. But Dutch company Fairphone is happy to go ahead and update the version that is now 6 years old. Verfone 2 to Android 10.

Admittedly, this is not the latest version of Android at the moment, but if you think that the device was released with Android 5 at the time, this is a very unique fact. For Android standards, it is very important to maintain phones for a long time. With Android 10, Fairphone 2 users not only get the latest security features but also new features like additional privacy settings and dark mode.

Program support for 7 years

Fairphone makes phones from as many sustainable materials as possible and the products are largely self-repairing. This means that you have to use your phone for a longer time, which is good for the environment. Hardware is one thing, software is another. So the brand supplies its phones with very long software support. The 7-year support program is unique to Android phones.
