So why buy a new iPhone if you could built one to your own liking? Want an upgraded memory? A faster processor? A better camera? In Shenzhen China, they have all the parts you need! This makes me want to pack my bags and travel to Shenzhen and build my own iPhone! Put your creativity on a different level and imagine the possibilities that you can create.
I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works!
I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them.
So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.
