This is Fairphone
Fairphone was founded in the Netherlands in 2013. The manufacturer’s ambition is: that phones should last longer and the phone market should become fairer.
Fairphone’s sustainable telephones are therefore modular. This means that you can quickly and easily replace parts yourself if something is broken. And that for a good and fair price.
Also important: safe and fair working conditions. Fairphone gives the factory employees a fair salary and ensures that everyone can be heard.
The (recycled) materials are purchased fairly and sustainably and do not come from conflict areas. The company has 14 focus materials that are recycled or purchased fairly and sustainably.
For example Fairtrade gold. Fairphone tries to prevent child or forced labor. They also support projects that focus on energy efficiency in Uganda and Congo.
The new Fairphone 5
The manufacturer’s latest sustainable phone is the Fairphone 5, the successor to the Fairphone 4. Below you can read what this smartphone has to offer.
Designed to last extra long
The Fairphone 5, like other Fairphone phones, is easy to repair. The phone is made of modules and parts that you can buy and replace separately.
This is also possible for an affordable price. For example, a new screen costs between €80 and €99, and a new battery costs between €26 and €39.
The Fairphone 5 is very fast. And he remains so. This is due to the new Octa-core chip. This has a long lifespan and will receive software updates for the next 8 years. Unique in the telephone industry!
For every Fairphone sold, Fairphone recycles another device. Or refurbished for a second chance. The Fairphone 5 is also free of e-waste. Do you have an old phone lying around? You can hand these in at Fairphone for sustainable recycling.
5 years warranty
Fairphone wants you to use your phone for as long as possible and that is why they offer a warranty period of up to five years.
