Fairphone 3 + (Plus) Review

Highlights

  1. It has an IPS LCD panel with Corning Glass 5 protection on the screen.
  2. The camera department has a 16 MP selfie port with a 48 MP primary sensor on the rear panel
  3. The processing section illuminates the Snapdragon 632 SoC on the board
  4. It receives a small Li-Ion 3040 mAh battery
  5. The phone is available at an expected price of $ 570 (INR 40,000)

Design and display

The compact and robust design with a black finish produces a feeling of premium quality while providing a simple and elegant layout. The rear panel looks as smooth as the front panel, although a slight bump may be due to the fingerprint reader and the camera board.

The front screen comes with 5.65 inches IPS LCD technology provides a decent brightness setting to dramatically enhance the viewing experience. The Full HD resolution that depends on the excellent pixel density. On the positive side, the Corning Glass 5 protection is implanted on the screen by the company.

Memory and Internal

A 4GB RAM comes with 64 GB storage may not be sufficient for some aesthetic point of view, as the Fairphone 3+ provides a reliable secondary storage option. Under the hood, the Snapdragon 632 chipset is intact with the Adreno 506 GPU.

The octa-core processor powers are set to the 1.8 GHz speed, which means it will have entry-level performance statistics. In addition to the internal hardware parts, the software section comes with an Android 10 interface with basic features and essential settings for daily use.

Camera

Even if the Fairphone 3+ offers a single 48 MP sensor as the main camera, it may not look as convenient as the smartphone looks. On the contrary, a clean image and video software are just perfect. There is a big boost in the selfie, as the 3+ seems to have a 16MP front camera setup better than Fairphone 3.

Battery and Others

The 3040 mAh battery pack is inserted in the phone, providing one day of use and almost two days of battery life. It also includes Qualcomm Charging technology for a slight increase in charging speed and uses a Type-C 1.0 port to supply the battery.
