The Fairphone 2 was developed with an ambition to reduce environmental impact from the production process. Thus, the Dutch manufacturer has been paying careful attention to the sustainability of the manufacturing of the device. Thanks to this very mindful approach, customers will benefit from both a modular design and easy repairability should a disassembly be required.

The phone is so easy to take apart that iFixit has awarded the phone a 10 out of 10 in its repairability score. This is not only the highest score of any other smartphone, but also the highest score obtainable. Its core components can be easily swapped with just a few simple steps.

The rear of the Fairphone 2 is a protective case that allows easy removal of the battery and display without any tools. Whereas nearly all other manufacturers use integrated components and adhesives, the Fairphone 2 is put together with simple Philips and Torx screws.

The smartphone is available for 525 Euros. The complete specifications and details on the Fairphone 2 can be found here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
