Question about the recycling of phones

Have sent in my old LG G5 for recycling, but the question on the form for the storage capacity has made me curious, what are you using said chips for?

Making new phones or making USB flash drives out of them? (saw a youtube vid recently of someone doing that with the latter :slight_smile: ) or something else? :slight_smile:

Doesn’t matter either way, but i’m curious :smiley:

I didn’t know either, but I just found this article:

“There are lots of acquirers of old computer equipment or smartphones in the internet or in shops, who will give some – but not lots of – money for smartphones in large quantities. Exactly these build-in memory chips will then be reused for producing cheap “brand new” USB sticks.”
