Dirt in the creases. Pointy corners that'll rub and wear off and/or jab you in the arse when it`s in your pocket.

Put it in a case you might bleat? It *has* a case. That`s what all the plastic/metal covering up the electronics are meant to be for. At least...should be. This whole trend of putting devices into a protective case is VERY handy for manufacturers to sell you something shiny that isn`t robust enough to survive actual day-to-day use.

Lauriloo, I don't need a camera on my phone. Therefore that space the camera takes up could be more memory, or larger battery. That`s the advantage in the modular phone.

So you can only have the bits that fit together to form the main shape. Somehow I don't see an advantage in that.

@listypoos

so apple wont buy into it, every other company that makes tiny little 2 dollar usb add ons that do nothing will. cause now they can make add ons that will do stuff, they can compete for the sake of the addon, which would be standardized and available to everyone in this particular market. its open source hardware. a sony camera connected to a samsung harddrive connected to an lg screen connected to an altek speaker. this is how poo is already done, its just not customizable, interchangable components.

dratin negative non-nice individuals who don't think of possibilities or revolutions in a world that is only growing because technological innovations. this is LTE of hardware (long term evolution).

Good idea, but not technically or economically feasible.
