Replaceable battery, modular components, JerryRigEverything on the Fairphone 3+

Published by at

With loads of similarities to the classic Lumia 950 XL, I was very interested in the Fairphone 3 and 3+ over the last few years, see my mini-review and Lumia 950 comparison and my own video showing how to upgrade the cameras. And now I thought a video LOI to durability testing specialist Zack at JerryRigEverything would be helpful, since he does a good job of both showing the modularity and also proving that the design can take a beating. Still a fascinating phone concept.

As usual, click through to YouTube to maximise and increase quality if needed:

Good stuff. As Zack says, this is the only phone in his video series that has had a 'teardown' before the durability test!!

Fairphone PR wanted their gear back, so I can't test this anymore - plus it's not that cheap to buy, but hey, it occupies a totally unique place in the current smartphone world.
