# Thread: Can We build a Smartphone

1. ## Can We build a Smartphone

Is There any way we Can Assemble A Smartphone like we do in PC. Like Exynos 4 Quad processor, Super Amoled + Display With Corning Gorilla Glass, Raspberry Pi GPU, 2100 mAh Battery and Cabinet(Body) of Nokia Lumia 900(Big N9)

2. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

The answer is NO

3. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

Good question.

Straight Answer:No.

Reason:The things you mention are the features of a smartphone.These are all combined to a form factor(phone) which is not possible as it is in the case of PC's unless you have a dedicated assembly plant.

4. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

Only if you can obtain each component individually ,which wont be possible.

Dafuq did i just read someone asking can we assemble a smartphone?

Yeah Buddy

@all previously Pcs were also sold in Brand but Now We build it so will that possible in future???

7. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

^^ No its not possible.
Cause its a huge manufacturing process

8. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

and waste a month or more compiling the OS, kernel and fixing one thing after another. and if you miss a particular library, something will break and your sweet smartphone will turn into a cripple phone.

Yeah Thats Damn. Complicated but is there any way in which we can customise it like in Dell Online Stores

10. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

LOL Dell Store is For PC.
And if you want a phone with a particular H/W just explore all the smartphone available in the market.
With Hundred of smartphones ranging from 4k-40k you will definitely get something which suits your needs(or taste).

I know that Dell is of PC I just gave an e.g. of how can we customise our dell Lappy so there should be something which provide us options like that

13. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

^^ No one will Make special phones for you
Now i remember my friend always fooling around with us he said Apple Specially liberalized his Iphone 4S for Indian Accent.While AFAIK SIRI still doesnt understand Indian ascent

14. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

its possible in China.. there is a minimum quantity limit.. im not being sarcastic or trolling.. this is a fact.. you just have to give a bigger order

15. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

^^^thanks for info

16. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

As funny as the posts of pratyush997 may seem, but there's actually a good vision by him.

I too wish someday, we can customize our phones according to the features that we want. A future where we can select the best components or can focus on a particular feature according to our budget is all that is left now in mobile technology. As important as the hardware part is, more important part is the freedom of choosing software platform.

I would like to have a phone, where just like a PC, I have the choice to install Android or WP, or Meego or any other. It just seem far fetched now.. but I see it becoming reality in a not-so-distant future.

THATs the thing I wanted but when. For e.g. I Love Samsung Omnia W only at its H/W and price Ratio but Hate Its OS wp7(NO USSD, No BT File Transfer) I wish I could Run ICS on it

Customizing the phone might become possible in the future. But building a phone by yourself certainly won't be possible anytime soon.

19. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

But It would be great like if sellers do have an option..Like selling An 'X' phone with a choice of either a single core/dual core proccy depending on your budget

20. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

Yes , you can if you go to china "Build a smartphone" and work in some low wage paying factories,or work as a child labour.
I have done it at home , it worked (i.e. landphone)
^Just joking , don't take seriously I just repaired it.
But your idea looks promising , may be you can start a company and fullfill my dreams some years later.

21. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

it is a vision and it can become a reality only if companies start introducing swappable parts, think of a mobile cpu with its motherboard and own gpu on some standard chasis. But i guess thats quite some time away we dont even have the freedom to replace laptop gpus....

22. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

well we already have many models from different companies. Even if companies do allow customisation it will be very very complex. Whether to get Snapdragon or Tegra,etc

It'll be complex for the companies that'll be offering customization. Not for us. We will be required to just choose.

24. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

Is it possible to give order of around 1000 Smart phones with the components the one want and later sell it to any company

25. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

I think it would be possible in China only not anywhere else........

26. ## Re: Can We build a Smartphone

Not possible, but interesting concept. We need to be able to build our own phone instead of being at the mercy of the (capitalist) manufacturers. We could upgrade it anytime, without having to chuck it out for a newer model.

However, I think we can still assemble our own tablets using a development board such as the Raspberry Pi.

Thats Cool if we can Build our own Tablets and if we can multi-boot it (Like in Nokia N9-Meego+ICS).
IT would simply rockzzzzz

Yeah you can, maybe then compete with market leaders like Samsung etc!

On a serious note why do you wish to custom build a smartphone when there are endless choices available!?

Because Many Don't want / Can't Afford to get a new Smartphone evrry 1.5-2 years...
So if the one can Get a
killer looking Body(Nokia Lumia 900/N9) --[Cabinet]
adreno 205/ any(Depends upon the choice of customer) --[GPU]
quad-core Proccy --[CPU]
Any Battery
Just like we do assemble our PC or make Rig (wither gaming or Just normal)
Don't you Think So!!!

I'm happy with my Bold 3, so to answer your query "I don't think so."
Get in touch with some china maal supplier, but don't expect a reliable phone.
