LEAFone / A circular service smartphone

LEAFone
LEAFone

LEAF is a true SMARTphone, from his modular body, it promotes conscious consumption by reusing and updating its interchangeable parts. Through the reuse of components it massively reduces the amount of garbage thrown in the nature.
One of its main features is the easy assembly, so any user can handle it without any expertise.
Everyone has different needs, so why we need to purchase the same things? and even more, for example: why a 1 year old high end cpu goes to trash, when it can be easily suitable for less demanding users ?
Just follow that idea and think how much trash can be avoid. Lets share parts, not trash!
