We all know how annoying it can be, when you’ve just gotten your hands on the “latest” smartphone, and one or two months later, it has become almost completely obsolete. That annoyance – among others – makes the Phoneblocks concept seem extremely attractive.


What Phoneblocks is, is basically a smartphone with easily changeable parts. Your phone getting a little slow? Just upgrade the memory “block”. Need a little more ‘umph’ out of the camera? Switch it out with a better one. And when the inevitable happens; namely a cracked screen, it can easily be replaced with a new one.


With the latest iPhone release from Apple, and other companies like Samsung churning out smartphones faster than you can say “hey I just got a new pho…”; this concept for a phone that will seemingly never need to be replaced, is revolutionary.

Since it’s only a concept right now, there are obviously going to be issues about how this gadget will work, especially from an engineering standpoint. But the idea itself looks very promising, and if the brains behind it can get it to work, the smartphone industry may well change for the better.

Check out this video explaining the concept

It may sound and look a lot like something someone made out of Lego, however there’s no question that this invention is something the market needs.

We think it’s an amazing idea, and we’d be one of the first people to pick one up if it ever sees the light of day in the future.
