Fairphone 5 – simply repair and replace phone parts by yourself

The new Fairphone 5 features the iconic modular design of past Fairphone models, with a base frame that you can build from. It is powered by a Qualcomm 5G processor, an ample 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, an IP55 dust/water resistant rating, a removable 4,200mAh battery, and triple camera system powered by Sony-made sensors.

Fairphone sourced the gold, cobalt, and tin for its Fairphone 4 from Fair Trade-certified or conflict-free mines, and about 50% of the copper and plastic in the phone is recycled.

The sustainable phone is also built to last longer than 2 years, which is the average lifecycle of a standard smartphone, because it’s easier for owners to repair on their own.

The back of the phone can be popped off without any tools, and the interior components are clearly labeled and easily removed with a screwdriver.

Spare parts for the sustainable phone will be available until at least 2027, and a five-year warranty covers issues not related to normal wear and tear or accidental damage (if you break the screen, you’ll need to buy a replacement yourself).
