When I started taking apart the Fairphone 5, I didn’t really expect any surprises.
Having dis- and reassembled the previous model several times, I had some experience with Fairphone’s approach to building a smartphone: Modularity paired with easy access to all major components.
It’s a winning formula for a repairable smartphone they have iterated on several times now. So, what’s actually different this time around—apart from a new and shiny OLED screen and beefed up cameras?↫ Manuel Haeussermann for iFixit
Spoiler: it’s still a 10/10 for repairability, but with new niceties to make the process even more pleasant.
