Fairfone relies on a consistent approach to making its smartphones, and the first differences between the Fairfone 4 smartphone and other models will appear as soon as the packaging is opened; Where the device is surrounded by compostable security pads, all connections can be composted based on the modular units and the file attached to it, regardless of the smartphone.

The Dutch company explained that the warranty of the smartphone includes software updates for Android versions 12 and 13, and the device is expected to support versions 14 and 15, but the updates depend on the minimum hardware requirements. Google system 15 is needed in the future.
Verfone considers its new smartphone to be “the world’s first e-waste-neutral 5G mobile phone”. Eva Kovins, director of the company, stressed that every smartphone sold or the same amount of e-waste will be responsibly recycled.
Fulfilling these promises seems to be a daunting task for Verphone; The Dutch company advised to repair the old devices instead so that even if they stay in the drawers for a long time, users will not leave their old devices easily.
