**compadrepie rolled image** Google is just a parter to phoneblocks. They are not making it themselves.

One thing that kind of bothers me is why haven't Companies tried putting a solar panel on the back of a phone (Instead of glass) So it can charge while on standby

I hope they do this for consoles soon.
That would be pretty sweet.

They already do.
It's called the PC.

if you change the parts of it, one by one, does it keep being the same phone?
And at what time does it become a new phone?

It's like a computer.

If you replace the video card and add more RAM, is it a new computer?

Didn't XBOX already think of this method of ripping people off by selling half made games and making **** tons of expansion packs for 5.99 a piece...

If some of the pieces are hardware pieces, then you can still replace them after water damage without buying an entirely new phone. They may make it waterproof to avoid that, as not many people can put in hardware without ******* it up.

last I heard google's next phone is meant to be high end and compete with apple, so I think they might have bought Motorola just to keep phone blocks stashed away

hope not because google is cool and stuff

Compete with apple? also Samsung galaxy is like two generations ahead on tecnology.
