welcome to the circular economy challenge

Fairphone’s new Easy plan reinvents the way to enjoy technology and will also help us to respect the environment by taking care of the life cycle of your phones.

The Dutch company Fairphone already presented us with its fourth modular smartphone at the end of last year 2021, although the most durable model in the mobile industry still had to give its business strategy an additional twist to become a 100% device. circular and respectful. .

They were aware at Fairphone, so this new and attractive Fairphone 4 5G will now be offered with a new Easy package that points to the circular economy, and in the process will try to revolutionize the way we consume technology.

Here is the new Fairphone 4 5G, the revival of the most respectful mobile on the planet.

Fairphone’s idea is indeed to never have to buy a smartphone again, and directly in the same press release in which it announces its Easy plan, the European manufacturer shows us that it is very serious about this new service. subscription which, in the words of the company, “takes its circular ambitions to the next level”.

Here we leave you the link to the announcement of Fairphone Easy, and now we continue to explain the proposal:

Fairphone 4 5G: the renovation of the modular and eco-responsible mobile is here

There are already other manufacturers and operators who offer us similar options for renting devices, although in the case of Fairphone they go even further because the Dutch idea is that we never buy the smartphone nor do we consider it ours, but rather that we subscribe and use it for a monthly amount that will have bonuses if we take care of the smartphone or return it in good condition, for example.

Not in vain Fairphone wants to offer us a 100% circular system in which they condition the devices, you use them for as many months as you want and the terminal returns to the arena again conditioned for its next user, changing the parts that are necessary because we are facing a totally modular device and with the highest repairability rating from iFixit, a 10 out of 10.

With Fairphone Easy, the Dutch manufacturer offers us to extend its product management beyond the actual sale, covering their entire life cycle and then recovering them to recycle them or give them a new life with a new user. .

Fairphone, easy program

The Easy service includes a Fairphone 4 5G smartphone with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, as well as its possible replacement or repair in the event of failure or breakage, adding maintenance and all necessary updates. The savings are in the maintenance you give to the terminal, because the better you keep it and the longer you have it, the less you will pay each month.

Thus, Fairphone guarantees responsible use and a much more sustainable life cycle of electronic products, promoting prolonged use and ensuring both its reuse and the correct recycling of failed components.

The service can be contracted for now in the Netherlands on the official website of the manufacturer, although there are plans to extend it to other markets, and the prices offered by Fairphone are as follows:

  • Fairphone Easy (3 months).- €34/month
  • Fairphone Easy (12 months).- 29€/month
  • Fairphone Easy (36 months).- €24/month
  • Fairphone Easy (60 months).- €21/month

This is how the contracting of the new Fairphone Easy program is illustrated in the Netherlands.

Of course, from Fairphone they give us all the facilities so that we can enjoy our new ecological smartphone without problems from day one, although the manufacturer does not include a charger or cable in the service, so we will have to have a USB Type-C cable and a wall charger.

They include a protective back cover, as well as a screen protector that arrives from the factory, adding the advantages already listed with a lifetime warranty, free repair or replacement of parts (once a year if we speak battery and glass) and troubleshooting software, plus full replacement of the phone if it does not work within 48 hours.

Why Fairphone Easy represents the sustainable revolution in the mobile industry

As Fairphone officials told us in the published notes, their market research confirms an average lifespan of our smartphones between 2 and 3 years, which for them is a very short life cycle that grows garbage electronics above acceptable levels.

In fact, they explain that only 15% of cell phones are recycled properly, and the industry’s carbon footprint and CO2 emissions have only grown and risen lately. They also say that these emissions usually mostly occur during the production process, so it is ideal to ensure that mobile phones are as modular as possible and allow us both simple repairs and hardware upgrades .

According to them, Fairphone Easy would encourage users to keep their mobiles longer, reducing their cost as usage time increases, also providing all its customers with a full warranty throughout the life cycle of the product, by adding software updates and repairing any components that may be damaged. This is also included in the price and at no additional cost.

Fairphone, easy program

His idea is to slow down what is called technological obsolescence, by offering an alternative way to consume technology and avoiding the rapid shutdown that most manufacturers manage for their devices.

Fairphone is also proud to master better than anyone else the entire cycle of its smartphones, from production to delivery to its users, through the reconditioning and return to the circular economy or the replacement and correct recycling of devices that reach the end of their life. its useful life.

It’s a great idea that many should sign up for, and one that we applaud from here for encouraging other manufacturers to reduce their carbon footprint with measures like this… And you, how much would you pay per month forever use a brand new iPhone or the best Galaxy S in use every year?
