I’m willing to bet that at some point you owned a product that you really liked. Heaven knows I’ve had more than a few devices over the past two decades that I’ve loved.
Unfortunately, phones and other technologies are becoming obsolete and eventually we have to replace them. And while some people sell their old stuff, others, like me, tend to throw it in a drawer. Once in a while, we could pull it out, look at it, and take a trip down memory lane.
What do you do with your old handset or portable gadget when you’re done with it? Do you give it to younger family members who may have nothing? Do you sell it?
Xreart has a different idea in mind for old phones and technology – turn them into a work of art for your home or office.
With a growing selection of iPhones, portable gaming devices, and other gear in its portfolio, Xreart also offers a Samsung Galaxy S. Yes, that very first since 2010.
Early generations of iPhones, Nintendo Game Boy, Sony PSP, Nokia E71 and other devices are also newly available.
Our team received a framed Samsung Galaxy S here at the office and it has been a regular topic of conversation. Not only does it help us turn back time, but it’s also led to some fun discussions about our favorite phones over the years.
Each Xreart piece is more or less a disassembled or exploded look at a product glued to a framed white panel. Depending on the device you choose, you’ll end up with a room that’s about 18″ x 13″ or 13″ x 13″ nearly two inches deep.
If you thought your old phone was cool to pull out of the drawer and peek over, wait until you see what happens when it’s separated and you can see the individual parts and pieces.
Each part is clearly labeled and displayed relative to its internal location, including the processor, circuit board, speaker, camera modules, cables, and buttons. Framed art is individually constructed with what can only be described as strict attention to detail.
If you’re struggling to find new or interesting gifts for friends or someone with a new home or college dorm, check out what Xreart has in store. There’s plenty to choose from and if you know a particular design is a personal favourite, well, you’ve got the giveaway of the year.

The attention to layout, design and framing offers a much more interesting way to present our favorite devices from yesterday.
