Honestly, I was pretty impressed at the first version of Ara.
However, making the battery/screen/cpu/ram bound to the frame is the biggest **** I’ve seen and makes the whole project uninteresting to me again. If Ara would’ve been really with at least the battery&cpu interchangeable, I’d have gladly taken it.
But in it’s current state I like the concept, but it’s there for me yet. Especially when I can’t replace the battery.
And finally, I hope that Ara 2.0 is the future of the smartphone - with Ara 2.0 being the Ara that was originally promised
