Which software operating system (OS) does Fairphone 1 have?

The Fairphone OS is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Fairphone-specific features.

We wanted to offer a balance between stability and openness and therefore decided to go with Android. In addition, we wanted a system that supports dual SIM, as this aligns with our core vision of fewer phones that have more value in second-life markets. Android offers this capability, while many others don’t yet.

But it’s not just the ordinary version of Android! We’re working with the talented people at Kwamecorp to simplify and improve the user experience. They are also creating some special features on top of Android 4.2.
