Fairphone 5 is built to last
Our Fairphones are built with a modular design.
That means that you replace only what you need when you need it. No part of your Fairphone is glued shut, so you can repair it yourself. Instead of sending in your whole phone to be fixed or buying a new one, you can order the part and fix it within minutes. Saving the cost of a new phone, and empowering you to hold onto what you own. You won’t want to let go.

Take a look inside
The Fairphone 5 is our most sustainable phone yet. Made with more fair and recycled materials. Here’s a glimpse at what’s inside.
Our fairest battery
With a capacity of 4200 mAh it will last all day. You can easily swap it out yourself in seconds and it comes with more fair materials inside and integrated in the supply chain than ever.
The Fairphone 5’s OLED screen module is made with durable Corning Gorilla Glass and it’s easily replaceable. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes.
Just in case this small but vital little connector ever decides to take a break or call it quits, we’ve made it a replaceable spare part for the Fairphone 5.
The Fairphone 5 contains 100% recycled rare earth elements and 90% recycled plastics for the speaker cover, as well as Fairtrade gold in the supply chain.
More than 70% fair focus materials
We’ve stepped up our game for the Fairphone 5, with more than 70% fair focus or recycled materials. And we’re improving supply chain transparency and taking responsibility for our material footprint.
Made with respect for people
Every Fairphone 5 directly supports the people who made it with a $2.63 living wage bonus. With each phone, we’re moving closer to a world where the makers are treated fairly, paid well and take pride in what they do.
Made climate conscious
We’re avoiding and reducing carbon emissions by designing our phones to last, using recycled materials, powering the assembly manufacturing with 100% renewable energy and investing in projects reducing CO2 emissions.
When you buy a Fairphone 5, we give a phone a new life or recycle the same amount of electronic waste. This means 100% compensation for the weight of electronics we put into the market. Making you phone e-waste neutral.
Fair & recycled materials
Including fair minerals in our electronics is an iterative process. We focus on 14 materials that give us the most potential to make a positive impact on people and planet. Here’s a brief behind-the-scenes walkthrough of both our fair and recycled materials.
Inside the battery
Fairphone 5 comes with our fairest battery yet: it has fair lithium and fairtrade gold in the supply chain and impact
credits, a living wage bonus and a commitment to the highest standards on CO2 reduction and social auditing by our battery supplier.
Our battery (supply chain) now includes
Fairtrade gold in supply chain
recycled tin solder paste
75% post-consumer recycled plastics in battery frame
100% recycled tin solder paste
80% recycled steel and nickel alloy
In addition, we account for 100% of the cobalt used in the battery by buying cobalt credits, which support the improvement of working conditions for artisanal cobalt miners in the DRC.
We also account for 100% of the silver contained in the battery through buying Fairmined silver credits, which support Fairmined certified artisanal miners.

“We believe a fairer electronics industry is possible. By making change from the inside, we’re giving a voice to people who care.”

Chief Impact Officer
We put people first
All the parts in your device come together to work for you because people made it that way. Thousands of them. And they deserve a better quality of life for them and their families. Including sufficient income, a safe workplace, and the opportunity to be heard. Without them, there would be no smartphone.
The main supplier of the Fairphone 5 meets the strictest standards for safe and decent working conditions (SA8000& ISO45001). To make a lasting impact, our approach puts workers and their needs first. Focusing on paying living wages to increase income, and on strengthening worker voice and representation, as well as health& safety.
We’ve expanded our living wage program to also increase the wages of the people who make the components that go into your phone, like the battery or the vibration motor. Supporting our suppliers and their component suppliers to understand the needs of workers. Ultimately, cherishing the many hands that made your phone.
Climate conscious and the Fairphone 5
Climate conscious is an approach to avoiding and reducing carbon emissions by designing products that last, working with our suppliers to reduce our products’ footprint and reinvesting in the planet and projects that put people first. How do we do this?
By designing to last
Let’s face it, the production of a new phone emits a lot of CO2. Which is why we build all our devices - including your Fairphone 5 - to last. Designing for longevity means making a device that’s both modular and well-supported. With a long 5-year hardware warranty and an even longer 8-year software support, it’s easier to hold onto your phone for longer. To get better every time, we’re assessing emissions and other environmental impacts of our products in publicly available life cycle assessments. You can find all finished assessments here.
By working with our suppliers
We’ve partnered with our final assembly and battery manufacturers to implement renewable energy for the production of Fairphone 5. But this is not where we stop. By working with our suppliers to set climate targets we stimulate carbon reduction in our supply chain - beyond Fairphone products. We also stepped up our materials sourcing with your Fairphone 5. Inside your phone is recycled aluminum, magnesium, rare earth elements, tin, nickel, zinc, copper, plastics, and for the first time, indium.
By investing in the planet
Through investing in Gold Standard certified projects in Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, we’re helping to reduce CO2 emissions while contributing to community-based activities. Our contribution matches the remaining emissions of Fairphone 5’s lifecycle.

What’s in the box?
Only what you need. If you don’t need it, we don’t include it. It's your choice.
Some things are not in the box, and here’s why:
We do not include a USB Cable, charger and audio jack adapter in this box because chances are, you already have them at home. So, we don’t want to create unnecessary waste by giving you more of what you don’t need. And hey, if you’re missing anything, just have a look at our accessories section.
Recycle your old phone and save some money.
Do you have an old phone lying in a drawer somewhere? Why not reduce the waste? Find out how much it's worth to see if you're eligible to receive credit.
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.”
