Is Fairphone dust or water resistant?
We designed Fairphone as a robust device. Yet, this does not mean that it is waterproof or dust-proof. To make a completely waterproof smartphone, you need a sealed architecture. Using seals or glue challenge our ambitions for openness and repairability.
Since we wanted our Fairphone to be easy for anyone to open and repair, we created a unique modular architecture.
Dust, moisture, and water entering the device are the most common causes of failures in a phone. Of course, we wanted to prevent that from happening. With careful construction and seals and gaskets in the necessary places, we brought this back to a minimum.
This enables Fairphone 2 and Fairphone 3 to withstand normal usage conditions. Even so, you should take care of your phone!
