The most ethical #smartphone is one you keep for as long as possible.
However, if you have to buy a new one, there are a couple of models you might consider:
@switchingsocial buying phones second hand is also a good way to stay ethical, as you're extending their usable life and saving them from landfill.
It's also good from a penny-pinching perspective too. £200 plus a rolling SIM that only costs £10-20 a month is a lot cheaper than getting the latest feature phone on contract.
Yes, definitely! Wish I'd mentioned second hand on the original post :/
Well, to be fair: I'd say that buying used phones falls into another subcategory or so, given that the two you listed were intentionally designed to last longer than the standard couple of years. As opposed to an individual choosing to extend the life of a previously discarded phone.
They've consistently had problems keeping a steady inventory of spare parts. Now they've stopped supporting it altogether. I'm hoping they do better with v2 👍
