Fairphone 5 to beat the competition with easy to swap and repair parts while going green.

Sustainability may be the closest kin of Fairphone because this year, the company launched Fairphone 5. This stunning handset is beasting with several tricks, which include taking good care of Mother Nature. So, if you’re into green energy, recycling, and whatnot, Fairphone 5 should be on your green list.

Fairphone 5’s one of many edges is its parts – easy to swap and easy to repair. You can change the camera for the latest module, for example, so your selfies and groufies will always be on point. Next is the 5 major OS updates, going beyond what other companies would give. 

This means that Fairphone 5 will start on Android 13 and end on Android 18. To match that, Fairphone offers a 5-year warranty to let users keep their phone longer. Just don’t forget to register your Fairphone 5 to enjoy it.

What parts are upgradable or replaceable? You can swap the OLED display, rear cameras, selfie camera, battery unit, and USB port. Modules are secured but a Phillips head screwdriver from Fairphone will let you remove them. Fairphone and its partners also sell these modules.

Fairphone also made sure that Fairphone 5 got juice and power. It has the Qualcomm QCM 6490, similar to Snapdragon 778G, an 8GB of RAM, and a 4200mAh battery. It will also make you smile with its 50MP dual-lens rear camera system and ultra-wide lens, coupled with a 50MP front-facing shooting for selfies whenever or wherever you want.

Keep in mind that Fairphone 5 is eco-friendly, so don’t expect a charger, charging cable, or even a headphone adapter. 

You can now preorder Fairphone 5 for €699 (₱42,897.10) and shipment will commence September 14. The steep price is something but don’t forget the 5-year warranty, 5 major OS upgrades, and replaceable parts. Those perks are not easy to get, not even from the most expensive smartphone near you.
