Here's How You Can Build Your Own iPhone in China

A good way to save some cash.

By //Tech

The upcoming iPhone 8 is reportedly going to cost more than $1,000 USD. If you don’t have that kind of cash to spend, take a look at the video above where American Scotty Allen, traveling around China, built his own iPhone 6s from recycled parts. Only spending $300 USD, the iPhone 6s 16GB was entirely built from parts bought in the public cellphone markets in Huaqiangbei, China. Check out Allen’s DIY iPhone project above. Allen also mentions why he built an iPhone 6s instead of an iPhone 7:

“iPhone 7 parts are pretty hard to come by in the markets. It’s not totally clear why this is, but I have some ideas. A lot of the parts come from recycled/broken phones, and so it would make sense that there just isn’t that much supply yet. I also think there’s probably really high demand for iPhone 7 parts, so what parts are available may get traded before they make it out into display cases.”

For the upcoming iPhone 8, Apple reportedly ordered 70 million OLED panels from rivals Samsung.
