Fairphone 5 gets 10/10 repairability rating from iFixit

Fairphone products are built to last and with repairability in mind. The Fairphone 5 that launched back in September ticks the right boxes for a durable phone according to iFixit with its signature teardown rating of 10/10 repairable.

Fairphone 5 is easy to open, no need to heat the back or try to pry off any glass components – you just pop off the covers and you’re ready to replace the battery. Despite the removable back cover, the Fairphone 5 still carries an IP55 ingress protection rating against dust and water jets.

Digging deeper reveals more of the Fairphone 5’s repairable design, including easy-to-remove connector modules, individually replaceable camera sensors, and marked cable and component labels to help guide users during repairs.
