Teracube 2e Review – A More Affordable Sustainable Smartphone
Teracube’s slogan is “Better for your pocket, better for the planet”. In this Teracube 2e review we do a deeper dive to see if it lives up to the affordable yet sustainable smartphone slogan.
AndroidHeadlines did an early read on this device on launch day. I have been using the Teracube 2e for a little over a week in preparation for this review.
Before we dig into the Teracube 2e review let’s take a look at the company’s philosophy and why they believe their approach is more beneficial to the environment.
Earth and Environment Friendly
Smartphones’ biggest environmental impact comes from the manufacturing process and the e-waste when discarded. According to Teracube, in the U.S. alone, over 151 million cell phones are thrown into landfills every year. To help combat this, the Teracube 2e was designed to help reduce e-waste and smartphone turnover.
Teracube’s devices are good for the environment not only because they use replaceable batteries and recycled materials. By offering a long warranty and a swappable battery with guaranteed 3-year software updates, they are counting on people to keep their phones longer. This in turn should help reduce e-waste generated by smartphones filling landfills.
According to a United Nations report on E-Waste, the world produces as much as 50 million tons of electronic and electrical waste. And if we continue on our current path, we are on track by 2050 to reach 120 million tons of e-waste per year. Experts are anticipating a fresh glut of gadgets as we all rush to join the 5G revolution.
In order to live up to their slogan “Better for your pocket, better for the planet”, the introductory limited-launch price of the Teracube 2e is an eye-popping $99. However, launch quantity stock is limited and is on a first-come-first-serve basis. MSRP of
