Fairphone has generated a fair amount of chatter within the repair community by making a fair-trade phone. Join us and find out if their commitment to a "smart, open design" and "lasting value" will make for the repairable phone of every fixer's dreams.
We managed to get our sneaky hands on Fairphone #3. No, seriously — the device we took apart is the third unit that came off Fairphone's prototype line! So some pieces may be a bit "rough around the edges" or have markings that don't show up in actual production units, but that’s the price we pay for having exclusive access to the phone.
