When you take apart products, you start to notice that even small devices—like phones—inherit the rules and values of their respective makers. Usually, the rules are strict. Manufacturers are telling us to Keep out! when glue or special screws are used to prevent DIY repair. They’re commanding us to Replace! when the battery is buried so deeply inside a device that it’s impossible to get the part out after it fails. And we’re often told that the demand for slim devices necessitates a design that’s hard to access by the user. But is that really true?
But we have a solution for you : Fairphone – Designed to Open
Fairphone is clearly designed to be taken apart and put back together again repeatedly—with connectors to match! They are less error-prone and far more robust than conventional press connectors. It’s a forgiving design that allows users to make mistakes, without destroying their phones. And I’m delighted to say there’s not a single delicate flex cable in sight. The Fairphone 2 is the perfect phone for tinkering.
Fairphone 2 has all the trappings of a modern smartphone: large touchscreen display, standardized ports, expandable storage, and a slim design. At the same time, it is incredibly easy to open and disassemble. The casing and the inside sport helpful instructions and explanations that invite exploration. As a design for service and repair, it is easily accessible for everyone—even for beginners.
