Amelia Crews, Energy Innovation Co-ordinator, Your Co-op EnergyRead Amelia's review of the Fairphone 4
The minerals in your mobile come from artisan mines from all over the world. The Fairphone 4 is built from 100% recycled plastics and responsibly sourced materials such as Fairtrade gold and aluminium from ASI-certified suppliers, making it an eco smartphone. This means child protection policies are in place and the miners are paid a fair wage and work in safe conditions.
That’s why we only sell ethical smartphones – it’s all about creating a better future for communities and the planet.
The Fairphone 4’s modular design means it’s affordable and easy to take apart to access the phone’s screen, cameras, ports and battery, and you don’t need to be an expert to swap out the battery or display.
Upgrading your phone can become a thing of the past. You can simply replace and repair parts with an eco phone, reducing e-waste and emissions.
You’ll never miss out on capturing a memory with the Fairphone 4’s dual cameras. The 48MP ultra-wide lens gives immersive 120° viewing, fast autofocus and uncompromising image quality. The crisp 25MP selfie lens delivers dynamic, detailed photos and videos in any setting.
Dual SIM functionality (1 physical SIM and 1 eSIM) means you can have two different phone numbers on just one phone. Great if you need separate work and personal numbers or, if you’re travelling abroad, use the additional SIM as a country-specific SIM and cut down on unforeseen charges from your home provider.
Fairphone have a range of accessories specifically designed for your new smartphone, this includes items such as cases and chargers.
You can purchase a charger from us when ordering your new Fairphone 4 and all other accessories and spares can be purchased directly from Fairphone.com.

The Fairphone 4 not only offers business mobile users better resolution, increased memory and improved battery life but also 5 years warranty, making it the phone for now and the future, ideal to help revolutionise your business.
Alongside its modular and repairable design and extended warranty, it’s also 5G mobile compatible, making it guaranteed to future-proof your business.
The Fairphone 4 has received a perfect 10/10 score with iFixit, a 9.2/10 for its 128GB handset and 9.3/10 for its 256GB handset by the French Repairability Index - putting customer ease as a priority. Fairphone is also an industry first to have received the Fairtrade Gold award, for its ethical supply chain and manufacturing, highlighting how the Fairphone 4 is an ideal opportunity for your business to reach its sustainability targets.
Choosing Fairphone for business is a great step towards helping the planet and people – but it also helps your business. Fairphone’s modular-designed smartphones last much longer than non-modular phones and the repair costs are much less than standard smartphones. Resulting in your business saving money over time, by using the Fairphone 4 which is made from 100% recycled plastic.
The 5G mobile and business capability ensures users a powerful experience with Android 11’s operating system, to accommodate fast-paced business and productivity, for many years to come.
''It’s important to take into account the ease of repairability with the Fairphone. In other organisations I’ve worked in, we’d historically buy cheap handsets and when inevitably the screens broke or the batteries died out the handset would be replaced.
The Fairphone however is different, we’re able to quickly replace the screen or battery, returning the phone into service at a lower cost than buying the new handset. The other driver for replacing Android handsets would be the lack of updates, meaning phones fell out of support, though Fairphone commit to updating their software for 5 years meaning I know my handset will always have the latest security updates.''

Using the Fairphone 4 for 5 years can cut your carbon impact on climate change by around 31% annually, and up to 44% if kept for 7 years. This is a sizable portion of your annual carbon footprint cut by simply owning a Fairphone 4.
On top of this, Your Co-op will further cut your carbon by offsetting 25 kg and planting a tree through our climate action partners Ecologi. This impact, which is made through carbon reductive projects and afforestation, results in your business mobile being climate positive.
Fairphone aims to offer customers genuine longevity by providing a 5 year extended warranty and guaranteeing software support until at least the end of 2025.
