The PuzzlePhone is the latest attempt when it comes to creating a smartphone that stands the test of time. And, more realistically, the occurrence of everyday accidents. The PuzzlePhone is a modular Android device that is made up of three easily replaceable and repairable parts: the brain (main electronics), heart (battery) and a spine (LCD screen).

Each of the parts are not only conveniently replaceable, they can also be customized and upgraded. Meant to last 10 years, the PuzzlePhone is a device that fights in the face of consumerism. More than that, Alejandro Santacreu, CEO of Circular Devices, says, "The main goal is to have a device that will be more sustainable in terms of life cycle and environmental footprint."
