Fairphone 3+ product description

The Fairphone 3+ is actually a Fairphone 3 but with an improved camera. Fairphone 3 owners can even upgrade their device to a 3+ by swapping the camera module. This is one of the advantages of a Fairphone, besides being the most durable phone so far

Honest smartphone with modern specs

Fairphone is the honest brand from the Netherlands that makes smartphones with care for people and the environment. To fall with the door in the house; that ideology has its price. The Fairphone phones are a bit more expensive than other phones with similar specs. But chances are they are made by people who don't get paid very nicely. With this Fairphone 3+ it's different. For example, 40% of the plastic has been recycled, factory workers have received a fair wage and there are no metals in it from conflict areas. And then the specifications are also modern. Think of a 5.65 inch screen with sharp Full HD+ resolution and sturdy Gorilla Glass 5, a 48MP camera with bright f/1.79 lens, fingerprint scanner, a headphone port, USB-C. The list goes on and on.

New camera but not a new mobile

As said before, this 3+ is a 3 with better camera. Because the sensor is bigger it catches more light. This makes your photos brighter, even in low light. Because of the faster autofocus and the shorter shutter speed, you shoot a sharp picture more often, even with movement. And because the camera module is available separately, Fairphone 3 owners can buy and instal it. According to Fairphone, a better camera is the biggest reason to buy a new smartphone. By only exchanging the camera module you save a lot of money which is not only good for your wallet but also for the environment

Main Fairphone 3+ specifications

  • Made from fair materials, this time up to 40% recycled plastic
  • 5.65 inch screen with FHD+ resolution and Gorilla Glass 5
  • 48MP camera with f/1.79 lens is a big improvement
  • 16MP forward-facing camera
  • Mostly modular and therefore self-repairable and upgradeable
  • 3040 mAh large replaceable battery
  • Support for 2 nano-SIM cards (Dual SIM)
  • Fingerprint reader on the back
  • Support for fast 4G mobile internet
  • Mid-range Snapdragon 632 processor with 4GB of RAM memory

Long lasting

Not only is the camera module interchangeable, almost every part of the Fairphone 3+ can be exchanged. Spare parts are for sale at Fairphone itself. That makes it very easy to repair. iFixit, the website where you can find repair manuals, also reviews it with a 10 out of 10. By comparison, an iPhone 11 doesn't get higher than a 6. And even after you buy it, Fairphone continues to care about you. The FP3+ is released with Android 10 but Fairphone wants to update it in the next 5 years. That also makes a phone a lot more durable. Not every year a new phone to have the latest.


Fairphone 3+ in the news

Fairphone announces Fairphone 3+ with improved camera

Fairphone 3 owners can upgrade for less than €70

Phone news ·

Fairphone has announced an upgrade of its existing Fairphone 3. The Fairphone 3+ is largely the same except for improved cameras. Both front and rear camera get some extra megapixels. Users with a Fairphone 3 can also buy the camera modules separately and instal them into their existing device as an update.

The Fairphone 3+ is, as we are used to, made of recycled plastic. The 3+ now consists of 40% recycled plastic while the Fairphone 3 consists of 9% recycled plastic. The rest has remained almost the same. For example, there is still a 5.65 inch screen, Snapdragon 632 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage memory. Differences are mainly in the cameras.


The Fairphone 3+

For example, the main rear camera goes up to 48 megapixels, which not only take sharper photos and videos, but also gets faster autofocus and improved image stabilisation. This should result in less blurred images. The selfie camera is doubled in megapixels and now comes out at 16 megapixels. In addition to more megapixels, the speaker has also improved and produces louder and clearer sound.

Affordable upgrade

Interestingly, owners of a Fairphone 3 can also purchase both camera modules separately to upgrade their phone to a Fairphone 3+. Until October 1st this upgrade will cost 69,95 euro, after that 94,90 euro. A completely new phone will cost you 469 euro. Pretty steep for a phone with these specs but bear in mind how easy and affordable upgrading and repairs are
