Modular Mobile Phones
Perhaps, in the near future people will not choose one of the many mobile phones, which are created by different companies, but they can collect the device with their own hands, according to their views and style.
Proect Ara – is an initiative of the corporation Google, which now is growing by company Lenovo, and many other developers around the world. The goal of this project – to create a free platform with open source hardware, on the basis of which people can design modular mobile phone.
Thus, anyone can, using the principles Proect Ara, collect his own smartphone with unique characteristics. At the same time to increase the memory, processor, screen resolution and battery in this device will be even easier than changing SIM-card.
These phones will be comprised of a plurality of modules, which will be attached to a single board. The user can use his mobile device hardware, that were issued by different producers. It can be useful in case of breakage of a module, or if you want to improve the performance of your smartphone.
Proect Ara will allow to reduce the financial barriers to entry for developers of mobile phones to a minimum, as this will increase competition on the market, lowers total cost of production, and also gives rise to more rapid development of technology.

Charge of the battery on most of them is barely enough for one day of active work, so it can disconnect such device at the most inopportune moment. And not all mobile phone users are always ready to carry spare batteries and chargers for their mobile devices.
