Three weirdly-designed smartphone features: is it worth the uniqueness?

Over the years, we have seen how android smartphones have gotten better in features - from the screen, camera, or even storage capacity. But some smartphones were designed differently from others. From flipping and folding screens to even detachable ones. Here are our top 5 weird smartphone features that we have seen over the years.

Flips and Folds

Smartphones that flip and fold are currently gaining popularity nowadays. Phones such as Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G and Galaxy Z Flip are not just uncommonly-designed units but also the most expensive models among the company's line-up. Also, Motorola's Razr has made a comeback last 2019 as a flipping android smartphone. The same thing goes with Huawei's Mate X although it has a different folding mechanism compared to previous units mentioned.

Dual Screens

Two is better than one: that's how these dual-screen phones work. It doubles the productivity rate compared to the usual brick phones. Microsoft Surface Duo's screens are permanently attached, unlike some phones from LG where dual-screen functionality is an accessory and it is sold separately.

But one of the most interesting dual-screen phones so far is the LG Wing. Its main screen swivels to landscape mode to show its smaller secondary screen. With LG Wing's technology, there are lots of potential features that can be unleashed by integrating its two screens. Some of these features are shown through this video here:


Phonebloks would probably be the first-ever smartphone of its kind if it was made into reality. First introduced by Dave Hakkens in 2013, the concept is where modules, or called "bloks", are integrated into the mainboard. These bloks are swappable depending on the user's preference. Unfortunately, this concept remained as it is until now.

But this concept of modularity can be seen on some smartphones nowadays. The Moto Z series by Motorola, for instance, composed of the main smartphone and "Moto Mods", the module accessories specially designed for the Z-series lineup. With these modules, users may opt to choose a module with high-end camera specs, or even a longer battery life with the battery module.
