What we liked
If the ARA concept does work good then its users can take customization of their phones to the next level and it will be more economical too! How? Say, for example if you need a stronger battery life then you don't need to buy and pay for another new mobile, all you have to do is just get a new and powerful 'battery' module and that saves a lot of money.
And as the modules are not dependent on other parts, It is easily repairable, so if the camera module isn't working then all you have to do is get a new one, and one does not have to go to the service centers anymore. So you can make your phone all by yourself, in other words, Its a DIY phone!
