This is an open request : does anyone know about equitable non-smart phones or laptops, ideally long lasting and for the laptops: easily repairable with open-source componants ?
I know about Fairphone, but I couldn't find anything similar for simpler "feature phones".
By the way, I stumbled upon their cost breakdowns, which are very interesting and well made:
I'm just going to put down and share my findings here:
a thread on the Fairphone forum about feature phones : started in 2014, resurrected in 2016, they point to Nokia being the "most" fair company by rankabrand.org & Greenpeace
another thread focuses on laptops : some very interesting suggestions there
why! is a Swiss company providing ecological laptops (low consumption, label, repairability) with Ubuntu installed.
there is an Ecolabel for electronics products : TCO certified
for repairability, Greenpeace launched a comparator for laptops, tablets & smartphones recently: https://www.rethink-it.org
- currently the best solution seems to be refurbished phones and computers. Living in Nantes, I'm going to look into Alis44 & Naga44 for laptops, and LeBonCoin for dumbphones
EDIT[2017/11/06]: a very interesting initiative: Commown
EDIT[2018/06/13]: another one, repackaged computers in France
