What about reusing the old smartphone parts for testing. It will be easily available everywhere. I have a doubt will get compatibility issue.

The stock Android compatiblity is vary with each specific devices. Like stock ROM of samsung can not be used in LG. We have to first observe what make each stock ROM different from each other. Installing OS in smartphone should be as easy as installing windows in PC. As all parts of smartphone will be replaceable and upgradeable so all parts driver should have facility to install later.

Great answer Vikash Rana.

One thing you need to do is start to lay out why this phone is unique? What is the value proposition to use this phone over an Android, iPhone?

This is key to understanding the next steps for this Project and making it successful.

Using a stock rom is good coz they can be customized , the Roms used by LG or Samsung are heavily modded for their advantage. They usually take the stock image of Android from Google and then modify it , .
But wat you said is also wrong, cause with slight modifications we can use a Samsung rom in LG phone ,and LG rom in Samsung phone, .
U might hav heard about CyanogenMod , it has basically a tree or branch which has basic codes or structure for a basic rom, you can tweak it however you, . If you basically go in depth about Android , you can see they used Android in project Ara and it had worked perfectly,
So we can you Android as the OS for the phone .
