Pillonel continues to astound everyone with its next project: an Android phone that uses Apple’s Lightning connector, according to Engadget.
Android phone with Lightning ports, however, aren’t as appealing as iPhones with USB-C ports. Pillonel claims in his first video that the device is more of a “fun endeavor” that “balances the pandemonium” generated by his prior device, which was released on April Fool’s Day.
This isn’t a joke, because, as ridiculous as it may sound, the iPhone’s Lightning port still works with full charging and data transfer on an Android phone (in this example, the Samsung Galaxy A51 – the first Android phone with Lightning port).
“This is a complicated endeavor that necessitates unconventional thinking.” “The most difficult element was figuring out how to make everything work together,” Pillonel explains.
“Apple’s Lightning cables aren’t foolish because they can recognize and charge just Apple devices.
So I had to figure out a way to make the cable think it was connected to an iPhone. Furthermore, all of the components must fit neatly inside the phone’s body, which is a difficulty,” he noted.
While many would say that Android phones with Lightning ports are clearly inferior to those with USB-C ports, Pillonel doesn’t appear to mind.
“I don’t think anyone wants to do this with their phone.” It’s no problem; I just wanted to test if I could pull it off.”
While these changes may not be everyone’s ideal device, they are an excellent example of what engineers can achieve even when they aren’t working with engineers.
