Every year millions of mobile phones are thrown away because they are broken or obsolete. In most of these cases it is just one part that needs repairing or upgrading and all the other parts work fine. However, the entire phone will be thrown out because of one reason: mobile phones are not designed for repairs or upgrades.

This mobile phone exists of separate components that can be ‘clicked’ together. Every component has its own function i.e. Bluetooth, WiFi, battery, display etc. When one of these components does not work, it can be replaced with a new one. When one of these components needs upgrading, same story: replace that specific component with a new one.  Choosing separate components enables you to personalize your mobile phone to your needs. Are you into taking photos? Go for the best camera. Are you working in the ‘cloud’? Choose less storage. No need for a specific function? Go back to basic and choose a top notch battery.

Show the world there is a need for a phone worth keeping, the more people we gather, the bigger the impact!
¬ Dave Hakkens

Companies work together to build powerful desktop PC (CPU, GPU, RAM etc.) so why they can not work together to build a phone? Phonebloks is revolutionizing the smartphone industry with an outrageous, yet awesome idea. Imagine a phone you can upgrade and customize at will. You would never need to purchase another phone! It would like to say that this is one of the biggest evolutions since the beginning of industrial revolution in mobile technology. This is really amazing!

Prediction about this evolution

  1. The big companies will use their influence to prevent this from taking off. Why would they support innovative ideas if it doesn't benefit them or suite their business practices?
  2. Companies who refuse to join/copy this idea, will go bust.
  3. Phonebloks will be the biggest company on earth within 10 years.
  4. All electronic equipment will be made this way. Think about the endless possibilities... camera's, tablets, laptops, etc..

Predictable Disadvantages

  1. Phonebloks will always be much bulkier and heavier than regular smartphones
  2. Getting components separately will be more expensive than an all-inclusive package.
  3. The blocks seem to have sharp edges, making it uncomfortable to hold (I guess you could use a case and make it even thicker.
