Abstract

Smartphones play an important role in our daily life. It is often the case, however, that they are replaced before they have been used to the full extent of their capacities. We investigate the feasibility of collecting old yet still very powerful smartphones and the potential societal impact of implementing some strategies for utilizing them in the fields of medicine, education and environmental observation. In our conclusions, we describe the expected impact of the many schemes and comment on which ideas we anticipate to be the most effective.
