Fairphone 3+ review

The Fairphone 3+ is more expensive than other phones with similar specs, due primarily to the brand’s ethical credentials. The 3+ goes a step further than Fairphone’s other smartphones, with a body that’s made of 40% recycled materials, plus the replaceable battery we first saw on the Fairphone 1. That alone might be enough to tempt you, but read our full review to find out whether the cameras, battery and display live up to the sustainable specs.
