The highlight of the Fairphone 3+ is the company’s ethical policy. It is touted to offer longer-lasting electronics with upgradability and repairability.

The new smartphone features a modular design that allows hassle-free repairs (without the need to visit a service center). It comes with a small screwdriver that can be used to swap the internal hardware.

However, unlike the company’s previous smartphone model, the Fairphone 3+ doesn’t feature a transparent back cover. It comes in a black colored panel.

Fairphone is being pitched as an ethical alternative to the popular smartphone brands. The company uses a more reliable and sustainable approach while making its smartphones.

The first-generation Fairphone was unveiled in September 2013. Now, the company is offering bugger upgrades over its previous models.

The Fairphone 3+ is made of 40 percent post-consumer recycled plastics (up from the nine percent recycled materials on the Fairphone 3).

“Our make-use-dispose attitude has a negative effect on every step of the supply chain, from working conditions in the mines to wages in factories, not to mention the strain on natural resources,” Fairphone CEO Eva Gouwens said in a blog post.
