/e/OS Fairphone 3

The deGoogled Fairphone 3 is most likely the first privacy conscious and sustainable phone. It combines a phone that cares for people and planet and an OS and apps that care for your privacy.

It features a removable 3000 mAh rechargeable battery. And in case of an accident, with its replaceable modules, you can repair it your self with a single screwdriver.

If you care about fairer technology, it is an obvious choice.

/e/OS is at the core of our privacy by design ecosystem. We have removed many pieces of code that send your personal data to remote servers without your consent. We don’t scan your data in your phone or in your cloud space, and we don’t track your location hundred times a day or collect what you’re doing with your apps.

/e/OS comes with beautifully designed open-source apps to cover most of your needs: browser, email, calendar, maps, camera ….

And because /e/OS runs on Android, you can still run most of your favourite Android apps.

Access app directly from your phone

Our app directory will give you access to more than 60,000 free apps directly from the OS.

You can check if each application respects your personal data with our privacy score. It analyses each app for you and gives them a score from 0 to 10.

We are constantly adding new apps.

One ID for your privacy ​

/e/OS is synchronised with a free account with your email address that ends with “@e.email”.

You get 1GB of free and private storage, convenient backup and access for your mail, calendar, contacts, documents, tasks and notes.

    Fairphone 3 with /e/OS installed

    mike (verified owner)

    Buying this phone with e OS installed was a leap of faith on my behalf, never heard of e.foundation, until I was looking at the Fairfone 3. A reviewer stated they were about to install e OS as they did not want android from Google. I could buy a phone and install an OS of my choice on it, I’m not quite there yet, I want to, but don’t feel I am proficient enough yet. E.foundation had a device in the here and now working as it should out of the box, no drama’s etc. I had tried the Punkt MP2, which was too glitchy and battery life was miserable. The Librem 5, too expensive and nowhere near ready, if ever. The lightphone, just not my type of phone.

    So that’s how I came to be at the e.foundation web site, I was sick and tired of intrusive Google, to the point of hating my current android phone.
    So I bit the bullet and bought a Fairphone 3 with e OS already installed.

    I have used it as my daily phone for just over a week and find it exactly what I want my phone to do. I want it to be a phone first and foremost, calls and text messages. Anything else it does, that is helpful to me, is a bonus.
    However best bonus of all, no Google garbage. No telling Google where I am, what I am doing, who I am talking to, what I am buying, no reading my emails and no annoying adds when surfing the web. I can have just the things that I want, and nothing that Google thinks I want. My phone, has now become my phone and not Google’s intrusive market research and advertising portal to my life 24/7.

    I don’t you-tube or watch films on it, why would I when I have a large TV for that? I use it to stream music from Spotify or a digital radio app. It’s bluetooth finds my headphones or accessories quickly and its range is impressive. I may take the occasional photo, so really the camera size, however many pixels it has, is irrelevant. It has a fingerprint reader on the reverse side, something I personally won’t use, I prefer my 12 digit pin for security.

    The phone, which I can dismantle with a screwdriver (supplied) is a terrific idea, so replacing parts will be easily achieved. A replaceable battery, fantastic, a plastic bumper to help the phone survive daily life, excellent. I am not too hard on my phones, I look after them, battery problems force me to change so I may keep this phone for years. It is the largest phone I have used, but I find it easy to handle, light and easy to grip, especially with the bumper fitted.

    This phone gives me the best of both worlds, user serviceability and an O/S that keeps my stuff private. Utterly Priceless. My only criticism, I want the ability to remove installed apps I don’t want, like notes, tasks, weather, calendar, recorder and calculator, just like any Linux OS I use I can deinstall anything I don’t want or need. Then the phone and its /e/OS, would be as perfect as it can get.

      I have now used this phone and operating system for over two months, its superb. I have updated the O/S two possibly three times over the air, without incident. Every app I use works flawlessly. I don’t use the E/OS account default Apps, I use Signal, Tor, Riseup-VPN, Orbot, F-Droid, Protonmail, Ctemplar or Tutanota. Utterly Fabulous, my phone is my phone again. Thank you e foundation and all involved. I await the Fairfone 3+ on e O/S.. cant be long .

  2. Fairphone 3 + /e/ OS make a great combo


    Bought the Fairphone 3 some months ago and booted /e/ OS on it. Works very smooth so far and its great to have most of the Android apps directly available. Love the combination of a sustainable phone with an Open Source OS of a company whose aim is to protect and not invade user’s digital privacy.
