Decide the design

A big selling point of the Project Ara phones is that you can decide which components go where. The camera doesn't need to be at the top, nor does the headphone jack need to be at the bottom.

Different components for different needs

You can carry around more components than will fit in the phone so that you can swap in when you need them. That means you could add an extra battery in place of the camera when you need more juice.
