    Fairphone 2 is a successful sequel to the world's first ethical smartphone. It has been co-designed with London design agency Seymourpowell.

    Fairphone 2 is powered by a Snapdragon 801 processor, with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, plus a microSD slot for expansion. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It has an IPS display of 1,920 x 1,080 resolution (about 441 PPI), and there's LTE connectivity on board as well as dual SIM card slots. That's a big jump up over the original 2013 handset, but these still aren't quite top-shelf specs, sitting roughly in line with what we'd expect from an early 2014 flagship.

    I think the specs is more than enough for a normal user.

    The Founder and Chief Executive of Fairphone, Bas Van Abel said that “We are excited about the potential this phone has to change the electronics industry and the way products are made. Almost 15,000 Fairphone 2 buyers have already voted with their wallets for a fairer, more sustainable economy and with the phone starting delivery in the next month, we believe the movement will grow."
