So, what's the problem with today's phones?
Today's modern devices are designed to be disposable. What we've found is that most people don't want to break the bank upgrading their phone, they're rather forced to when their old device gets too slow, the battery doesn't last like it used too, or it gets physically damaged. So how could a Cycle phone help fix this?
Let the Cloud do the work.
Instead of using the tiny processor in your phone to do all the computations, we use a dedicated server to run your phone. This means that as we upgrade our servers, your phone will get access to more power at a cheaper cost, making it get faster over time, instead of slower.
Wait, how cheap?
Modern phones get more expensive every year, but by using cloud computing we can offer a device more powerful than the latest iPhone, at a fraction of the price.
Imagine a phone that lasts up to 10 years.
The average phone is replaced every 2-3 years, but with a phone that has a replaceable battery and gets more powerful over time, we have a target lifetime for Cycle devices of 5-10 years.
One device fits all.
With Cycle, you can plug your phone into a screen, keyboard, mouse, and voila! You've got a full sized desktop computer. Well, something close to it. Oh, and because you're hooked up to a supercomputer, it's lightning quick.
Every 2 years, 3.5 billion devices are thrown away, with only 16% of all electronic waste actually being recycled. That means nearly 3 billion phones and tablets go straight to the landfill. The worst part? Most of these devices are still functional. As big of a problem this is, it's easy to understand why it's happening. After all, your phone gets slower over time, and after a couple of years the battery life just isn't the same. What about screen damage? We're working on that too. Our mission is to shift the way we think about devices from something that is expensive and disposable, to something that is much more economical and designed to last.
