Modular comes with price

In reply to: Modular phones fade away (almost)

Modular will come with price. It will be bigger, heavier, less reliable and more expencive because of design complexity.
Do you really need it? Are you going to upgrade it?

For example. Probably you have laptop. If you really need, you can upgrade many components there much less expensive then in modular phone. Did you do that? Do you need upgrade for your phone?

Not for now

In reply to: Modular phones fade away (almost)

It might be such a good idea, but not now at least for these couple years. Seeing Moto Z and LG G5 failure is a sign that the market need more time for being able to know how it should really work.
