What’s inside your phone


We’re working with the Fair Cobalt Alliance to integrate fair cobalt and responsible lithium into the supply chain. This battery is both easy to swap and a positive development.


Cameras, like a picture, should be long-lasting. Our main camera and selfie camera are replaceable.
What else is long-lasting? Fairphone works with the camera supplier to ensure safe working conditions and improve worker voice and satisfaction.


The USB-C port is the unsung hero of our devices. It's used daily to charge our phones or transfer our data. That can take a toll. But there's no need to call it quits. All our USB-C ports are fully replaceable. Simple and easy, just as it should be.

Back cover

The back cover is what you hold onto the most. Made with 100% recycled plastics, the Fairphone 4 goes the extra mile to bring you closer to sustainability. And it feels great.


The loudspeaker was made by many hands. So we work with the speaker supplier to ensure safe working conditions and improve worker voice and satisfaction. Everyone deserves a voice.

How it’s made

Electronic waste neutral

When you buy a Fairphone 4, we recycle or give one old phone a second life. This means 100% compensation for the material we put into the market. Making it e-waste neutral. A goal we can all get behind.

Fair & recycled

The Fairphone 4’s body is machined from aluminium from ASI certified vendors. And we’ve designed it with 100% recycled plastics back cover. Using even more materials that are responsibly sourced and conflict-free.

Made with respect

All the parts in the Fairphone 4 come together in perfect harmony because people made it that way. With each Fairphone 4, we’ve worked with suppliers to reserve a living wage bonus for factory workers.


Fairphone 4 is packed with future-proof specs.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between a used phone (2nd hand) and a refurbished device? How long is the warranty? What about software updates?

The Fairphone 4 New Life Edition devices are tested by technicians for full functionality and have been carefully repaired where needed, always with original spare parts. This means they are restored to their original condition and their lifespan is extended. Each of these phones is as good as new, and comes with:

  • A well functioning battery (guaranteed with minimum 80% capacity).
  • Software updates(guaranteed until the end of August 2026, though we are aiming to extend that to the end of 2028).
  • A 5 year warranty on any Fairphone 4 (regular and refurbished sold until 31 December 2023 and then 3 year warranty on anything sold from 1 January 2024.

A second hand phone (sometimes also called a used phone) isn't tested and often doesn't have any guarantee.

Why did you call it ‘New Life Edition’?

We called it ‘New Life Edition’ because by refurbishing the devices, we are giving them a new, second life, instead of throwing them away to become electronic waste.

How long will spare parts be available for?

We aim to be able to provide spare parts for 4 years after the last device was sold.

Will the phone come with a new battery? What does 80% capacity mean?

More than 80% of the full capacity (minimum of 3124 mAh of the original 3905 mAh) guaranteed doesn't sound bad, right? We're all about longevity, so we'll test all batteries and replace only those that are under 80%. Worry not, we'll also include one free new replacement battery if you experience any battery issues during the warranty period.

What will the devices sold be like aesthetically? Will they have scratches? Will those be registered somewhere, so I am not blamed for wear and tear?

The refurbished phones will have at worst 1 or 2 slight scratches on the display, never located in the center of the display. This will not be noticeable in the daily usage of the device. There could also be minor scratches on the back cover and frame.
We have clearly defined aesthetics and visual requirements for the phones we allow to be sold as refurbished, therefore it is not necessary to “register” the visual state of the device. We are only selling refurbished devices of which quality we are absolutely certain about.

Best in green electronics


There are more phones than people. And behind every device is a complex supply chain. With suppliers, local communities and the wider industry, we work for fairer materials and more responsible practices. Showing the electronics industry that we can do better.

Together we’re disrupting the industry’s short-term thinking that the world can no longer afford. And changing what it means to be “best.”
