A phone only lasts a couple of years before it breaks or becomes obsolete. Although it's often just one part which killed it we throw everything away since it's almost impossible to repair or upgrade. visit www.phonebloks.com to show your support and raise your voice.

Actually if they dont have retards like you building it, it would work perfectly fine.

Nice idea, but if phone companies would rather sell you a new phone every 2 years for hundreds of dollars than a new processor or battery for considerably less money.

That is good idea. Its like, well, every gamers dream. For a fully customizable device.
But, damn company like Apple would try to ruin it I guess. Trademark this and that.

1. That phone is ugly as **** . People care about tech's aesthetics greatly these days.

2. The Moto X already allows for customization.

3. Is an entirely new company gonna release this? If not, then it would defeat the purpose of it existing.

4. No company is gonna go along with this idea. People buying electronics from them on a yearly basis is what keeps them afloat. If they sold nothing but individual parts, cheaply priced, and they were only sold every few years, these companies would tank.

5.In real-world scenarios, how is this a superior alternative to what exists? Apple has the apps, Samsung has the features/capabilities, Sony has waterproofing, and iOS, Android and Windows OS all offer things people specifically buy them for software-wise.

6. Speaking of which, what software would this run? Either it'd run something that exists (once again, defeating the purpose of the phone) or it'd create something new and hence would be whole new learning curve to deal with.

7. It's a good idea, it really is, but NOTHING "lasts". Within a couple years the board wouldn't function as well or SOMETHING would deteriorate.

8. This phone is ugly as **** .

You ever broken the screen on an Apple phone? Had a battery die? They're a giant cunt to replace, and that's coming from someone who's an electrical engineer. The batteries are glued in on iphone 3's. The motherboards are hard-mounted to the casing. On Iphone 4/5, EVERYTHING is mounted to the screen; if you crack it, you're in for the long-haul to replace just the front.

Everything about Apples and most phones are designed around planned obsolescence.

This phonebloks concept would be infinitely superior in real-world terms. It's the same exact principle as PC vs Mac; my cpu is old, I can replace it. I can make a new pc out of any given parts.


Sure, it's a pipe-dream at the moment, but it's interesting, I suppor it, and I shall back it.
