Fairphone FAQ’s

What should I look for when choosing an environmentally friendly phone?

When looking for an environmentally friendly phone, you should consider: 
  • The ethics of the manufacturing process for the workers and the environment. 
  • The materials used in the phones and how they were collected. 
  • Factory conditions and power sources. 
  • Carbon emissions that were able to be avoided as a result of efficient manufacturing processes and the lifecycle of the device. 
  • Modularity and repairability to stop e-waste when a breakage or wear occurs. For instance, the life of an environmentally friendly device should be able to withstand a broken screen with a repairable design to continue it's use. 

How do eco-friendly phones contribute to reducing electronic waste?

The Fairphone 4 and 5 are both e-waste neutral which means that for every device purchased, the equivalent weight is recycled or refurbished by Fairphone. 

Can environmentally friendly phones match the performance of regular smartphones?

Yes, the Fairphone’s performance more than matches that of a regular, non-environmentally friendly smartphone. Inside, the Fairphone 5 has a Qualcomm QCM6490 chip and the latest Android 13 operating system to make light work of all your smartphone needs. 

How can I recycle my old phone responsibly?

You can recycle your old phone responsibly by using a local recycling plant that takes in used electronics, or you can donate your device to a charity such as Little Lives that aim to provide access to technology for in need young people.

Can I upgrade my Fairphone instead of buying a new one?

You can upgrade parts for your Fairphone if they are damaged or broken to restore your Fairphone to working order or to a better condition, thanks to the modular design. The Fairphone 3 can be upgraded with the Fairphone 3 Plus camera module from the Fairphone shop, allowing you to switch to a sharper camera without swapping your whole device. However, for the Fairphone 4 and 5 you cannot interchange parts between models to upgrade your smartphone.

On top of that, it also comes with a living wage bonus for the people who assemble the battery. 
  • Climate conscious approach to manufacturing means Fairphone avoid carbon emissions by designing electronics that last, using recycled materials, powering the assembly manufacturing with 100% renewable energy and investing in other projects reducing CO2 emissions.

Five stars for the Fairphone 5

"Up to 10 years of software updates is simply unheard of, gaining it an extra star. And the Fairphone is simple enough to repair that the hardware should be able to last just as long with an occasional quick and cheap battery swap.''
