A better phone is a phone made better

Our phones hold a complex story of the hundreds of people who helped make it. We want to open up that story, so we can make a positive impact in how phones are made, used and recycled.

Change doesn’t happen overnight. But together with our community, we’re building a movement to show the demand for fair products.

Our goals

When it comes to making our phone, we’re doing things a little differently.

We aim to create positive social and environmental impact from the beginning to the end of a phone’s life cycle.

  • Long-Lasting Design

  • Fair Materials

Long-Lasting Design
