How to make a cell phone
• All manufacturers' phones start in the conceptual phase.
Several sketches and wireframes are created using
different designs, features and interface options, such as a
single keypad and a touch screen. These sketches
establish the weight, size and ease of transport. As the
goal of most phones is to be compact and easy to carry,
this phase is the most intense.
• During this process, the team decides which designs will
become prototypes. Once the list is complete, several
prototypes will be created. These models are usually non-
functional and are for visual purposes only. Once the
design has been created, they pass the concept to the
engineers, who decide what type of electronics is needed.
• The fundamental part of each phone is its electronics. The
electronics control everything from the way the phone
displays information, establish calls, send location
information and more. According to the characteristics
established during the conceptual phase, different
electronics can be used. For most phones there are three
fundamental components: the printed circuit that controls
the numeric keypad and the reception of the signal, a
battery, and the screen.
• In addition to hardware, software is needed for the phone
to work. Almost every mobile or cell phone manufacturer
uses proprietary software on their phones. The software is
designed by a group of programmers who develop
interface design, basic / advanced phone operations, and
other features. By default, most modern phones are
programmed with basic features like text messages,
calendar and clock.
• . Finally, the necessary documentation for the phone is
made and sent to be packed together with the phone.
Once all these components are checked, the phone is
packed and shipped to the retail outlets.
