How could a mobile phone in the future?

Currently, there are several hundred models of mobile phones. But they fundamentally differ from each other only in design, feature set and price. In the General case, the effects are the same and the consumer is just stupidly throwing money away for features you are unlikely to regularly

The ideal option is to buy a device based strictly on your needs. But here comes the tricky tariff system of cellular network owners, who, under various pretexts, force us to pay for what we do not need at all.

According to some experts, a kind of dead-end advertising business has emerged: the more new models are praised, the less they are bought. And this is understandable, as the consumer begins to grow wiser. As a result of this, mobile device manufacturers are also starting to grow wiser and adapt to the demands of consumers.

Smartphones are similar to LEGO or computers with an open circuit design package with iron

It is already obvious that in the coming decades the number of mobile device models will sharply decrease, but at the same time, there will be a sharp turn towards the unification of models. In other words, three or four types of mobile phones of certain companies will remain on sale, but they will differ only in design. Everything else within the fundamental differences will not have. Simply put, the stuffing can be changed as desired by the consumer. Something close to Lego or computers with an open hardware configuration "iron".

The idea is very interesting and promising. Indeed, for the consumer, it is important to have at an affordable price the basic functionality in the body of any company. Gradually, the functionality can be increased as needs arise. This is the so-called open platform of circuit solutions, effectively used in computer desktop system units and for some reason completely forgotten in mobile technologies.

Buying, the consumer pays for the design, it looks which the chip and the chips are the inside

Although, of course, the interests of each device manufacturer are monopolistic. But practice shows that this is a dead end. The consumer (nobody canceled the laws of logic) should pay only for the hull design and main functions. He does not care what the markings on chips and other components.

It makes no difference until the case touches the repair. And then it turns out that instead of a failed motherboard, you can only install the same one, since it has different dimensions, although the functionality is absolutely the same as that of other companies. It's easier to throw out the phone then and buy a new one than to pay big money for a new fee.

While the device manufacturers have not yet reached this important point. But he will come. And then we get a mobile phone case with several basic functions and instructions on how to add additional functions to the device using the connection of a miniature board. Without buying a new expensive mobile phone.

But if the phone breaks, there is just something filling, or rather, the possibility of easy replacement of chips and parts

This approach, unfortunately, does not yet promise obvious benefits to producers. From here their obvious unwillingness to change anything in the debugged technologies, annually adding to the market new and new brands of phones, differing from each other only in design and a couple of functions. At the same time, the cost of new products is impressive.

Thanks to advertising new items are purchased. But consumers have already begun to understand that certain new features can be easily added to previous phones via the connector via a miniature unit or programmatically from the Internet. And why then buy a new phone?
