How I Made My Own iPhone in China

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.

Een open keuken, goed idee

Als ik geweten had wat een open keuken voor stof, puin en werk teweeg zou brengen… waanzinnig.

Maar nu de opening er is. Is het een geweldige toevoeging aan het woongenot en ik heb het allemaal te danken aan de man met de haakse slijper, Luc.
