After reading this blog post I realized adavantages in modular design that hadn’t come to my mind before. If you consider leasing as a future option to have a phone it makes a lot of sense for customers and providers/producers to use a phone with a modular design. This way it is easier to be refurbished after the first period of use than a standard phone. This way you don’t need as many skilled workers which makes refurbishment also cheaper (I have no idea of the dimensions, maybe it’s not that much) so the savings could be passed on to the customers. More providers might consider including such a phone into their offerings for lease. This might end in a much higher number of phones with more than just one period of use.
I would probably not lease a phone though as I really want to own it so I can do with it whatever I want. Also in modular design there’s still room for improvement on the technological side of course. But a ‘normal’, non-tech-geek user who is interested in sustainability might appreciate a leasing plan for their phone so they can have an up-to-date or second hand phone and get a new one after some time. Once this idea is established, there could be a thriving market for second-hand refurbished phones. Sounds great to me, what do you think?
