Fairphone products are built to last and with repairability in mind. The Fairphone 5 which launched back in September ticks all the right boxes according to iFixit which took the sustainable phone through its paces in their signature teardown giving it a 10/10 repairability rating.
Fairphone 5 is extremely easy to open up with no need to heat the back or try to pry off any glass elements – you just snap the covers off and you’re ready to replace the battery. Despite the removable back cover, Fairphone 5 still carries an IP55 ingress protection rating against dust and jets of water.
Going deeper reveals more of the Fairphone 5’s repairable design with easy-to-remove connector modules, individually replaceable camera sensors, and marked cable and component labels to help guide users during repairs.
