Open This Phone

Box game with phone mockups that you have to try and open to "replace battery or SIM"
  [vote for,

The cheap version has mock ups made of wood.

The more expensive one, has a digital interface, that changes the method of opening each time. A website would give "cheats" for free, if you promise to do some good deed in the world, or to make amends with someone you just angered recently.

Upgrade to the "Connect the adapter" or the "insert SD card".

Injuries to your fingers, are at your own risk.

       It’d probably be better as a simulation game — “Sim Sim”.

       A new version has the game instructions behind a blotted out touch screen, that keeps going to the wrong location.

       Expired credit cards are also ideal for running down grooves to split cases apart.   

       You might end up finding that the camera is far lower res than you think in both cases and that the apparent megapixellage is purely a software interpolation intended to fudge a seemingly high resolution (then smudged and smeared and noise reduced then sharpened) massive huge file from what was originally probably in reality only a sensor that has 640x480 true physical photosites (or maybe even only half of that!), in each case, with different software upscaling for different product differentiation. Or something like that. Of course, if that secret ever got out, they’d have to find some other ever increasing number to use as marketing leverage.
