Repairing the Fairphone 5


Here’s a handy guide on how to quickly repair the new Fairphone 5 by yourself. There’s a reason why we say it’s designed for you, made fair. The Fairphone 5 comes with ten swappable spare parts that make DIY repairs super easy… and fun, even. We’re really big on device longevity and our modular phones are ample proof of that. So what are you waiting for? Dive in head first with these quick video guides.

The Fairphone 5 is our first device to come with an OLED display, with a snappy refresh rate of 90Hz for crisp visuals even in broad daylight. Swapping a broken display for a new one is child’s play. Watch the video for more.

The Fairphone 5 top unit houses the time of flight sensor, the camera flash, and the individual SD card and SIM card slots. Then there’s the ear piece that ensures nothing ever gets lost in communication. 

The Fairphone’s premium triple camera system contains a 50MP front camera for that perfect selfie and two 50MP shooters in the back, a main camera with a state-of-the-art Sony lens and an ultrawide camera that takes your photos and videos to the next level, with a truly epic, cinematic perspective.

Your new Fairphone 5 USB-C port will ensure charging your phone and data transfers happens at optimum speeds while still saying super secure. It’s a tiny part, but oh-so-crucial to keep your phone going. The loudspeaker is crucial as well to make sure your smartphone sounds perfect every time. That means zero distortion and crystal clarity.

If you are in the market for a new phone, the Fairphone 5 is an excellent option, built to last longer than any other phone out there right now. The Fairphone 5 comes with a five-year warranty and guaranteed software support for the next ten years. Mobile phones don’t get greener than this. The critics are loving it as well. However, ask yourself if you really need a new phone before you hit that buy button. After all, the most sustainable phone is the one you already own.
