About Fairphone 2
The Fairphone 2 is the first modular smartphone designed by Fairphone, a Dutch company. Not only is the Fairphone 2 modular, it's also ethical, environmentally friendly and build to last. The components are designed in such a way that users can replace them themselves. This saves an enormous amount of waste and creates a longer lifespan for your device. Thanks to a strict code of conduct by the Fairphone 2 manufacturers, employees receive decent salaries and they work in safer environments. Fairphone is changing the way products are made.

Ubuntu Touch on Fairphone 2

Ubuntu Touch on the Fairphone 2: a perfect combination of a secure and open source OS on a sustainable and ethical device. So not only is the Fairphone 2 a modular device, it also guarantees the users' privacy with  Ubuntu Touch. No more Google services that extract your personal and private data! 

Ubuntu Touch is an open source software OS and offers a great alternative to Android. With a gentle swipe from the edge of your screen, you have access to all your apps, settings and tools. Ubuntu Touch keeps your Fairphone 2 secure, because everything unsafe is blocked by default and the OS is virtually free of viruses and other malware that can extract your private data.
