If you know me or read my work here at AC, you know that I feel strongly about a few things when it comes to smartphones and consumer tech, and those things are not necessarily what some of my colleagues or others in the tech-sphere care about. You can have your 10x optical zoom cameras, folding phones, and 50W wireless charging devices all day. Still, I’m more interested in affordable to mid-range devices that last longer than you’d expect and which are at least trying to do environmental and social good. Sounds great, but it seems that it’s more complex to find this combination of features in a phone than the ultra-premium specced-out devices we typically talk about here on this website.
That’s why I was excited when I had the chance to write this Teracube 2e review. Teracube is a relatively new smartphone OEM based out of Redmond, WA, and founder Sharad Mittal’s stated goal is to change the “disposable nature of the consumer electronics industry by designing products that last longer.” Mr. Mittal, you’re speaking my language. The Teracube 2e is the young company’s second sustainable smartphone, coming a year after its initial Teracube One device.
