You don’t have many options if you’re on the search for an inexpensive smartphone running iOS. Apple’s limited selection features some of the most expensive phones on the market, and if rumors are true, they may even top the $1,000 mark next time around.

As everyone knows, the best way to save money is by doing things yourself. That’s the solution Scott Allen, a traveler from the U.S., settled on in China.

“I’ve been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China, for a while,” Allen said. “So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works.”
