Most of this year's phone lineups were disappointments, said Android Guys.

However, in the midst of repetitive design and compromised features, Google's "Project Ara" proved that innovation is still possible.

Android Guys said that Project Ara is Google's attempt to create modular phones, and the model's interchangeable parts would allow customization that could help people create the phone of their dreams.

It can be used to create inexpensive phones for countries that don't have the luxury of buying expensive flagships from other tech companies like Apple or Samsung.

Project Ara is not available yet, although according to Gazette Review, there have been reports saying that the phone will be available soon - maybe by the end of the month or at the end of the year.

Google has already shown prototypes of the phone in events this year, among them the Project Ara Developer Conference where they also revealed that the first country to have the model wil be Puerto Rico.

Phone prices have become steep over the years, with most of the good ones going over at least $200.

However, considering that Project Ara is set for the poorer communities, Gazette Review cited an unnamed website that reported the phone coming with a price as low as $50.

The selling point of the Project Ara is that it's truly customizable. The phone's official website read:

The smartphone is one of the most empowering and intimate objects in our lives. Yet most of us have little say in how the device is made, what it does, and how it looks. And 5 billion of us don't have one. What if you could make thoughtful choices about exactly what your phone does, and use it as a creative canvas to tell your own story?

Introducing Project Ara.

Designed exclusively for 6 billion people.

So if it's a creative canvas, what does it mean in terms of specs and features? According to Fortune, that lies exclusively on a customer.

Project Ara aims to give users the ability to choose hardware components to fit their specific needs, like the way we currently use apps.

Among the hardware components available for tweaking are cameras, sensors, batteries, or even oximeters to measure pulse rates and blood oxygen levels.

Pretty impressive, isn't it?

It's time for technology to reinvent smart phones, and it seems that Project Ara is on its way of doing so - with cheaper prices to go with it.

What do you think of Google's new smartphone project?
