An Insight into the Fairphone 4
The Murena Fairphone 4 comes in two variants. The first variant, priced at $599, offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For those seeking higher specifications, the second variant, priced at $679, provides 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Running on Murena's /e/OS, this smartphone represents a de-Googled adaptation of its European counterpart.
Rather than relying on Google's ecosystem, Murena has replaced default applications with its own suite of apps, including email, calendar, web browser, camera, gallery, messaging, and file manager. Instead of the Play Store, Murena offers its own "App Lounge," allowing users to access apps sourced directly from the Play Store without compromising their data privacy.
Commitment to Long-Term Support and Warranty
Fairphone demonstrates its dedication to customer satisfaction by providing a five-year warranty for the Fairphone 4. Furthermore, /e/OS commits to delivering security updates and new features for the same duration, ensuring ongoing support and peace of mind for users in the United States.
The introduction of the Fairphone 4 in the United States is part of a pilot initiative, marking the beginning of Fairphone's strategy to expand its presence in the country. With the success of this venture, it is highly likely that Fairphone will continue to prioritize privacy and repairability by introducing subsequent models to the US market without Google apps.
