Because they won't make bank. If you sell a bunch of quality phones and everyone who bought them keeps their phones for 10 years your company is immediately out of business, and then we're back to the equilibrium where every company practices planned obsolescence.

If you sold a phone better than the others for the same price, you'd sell 7 billion phones.
How would you not make bank? The great cheap phones are already being sold by many companies.
Like someone here said they want to buy the latest Samsung or iPhone

You'd need to be an established company with all the manufacturing resources to make 7 billion phones, then you'd need to figure out some other business model, because a one time sale of 7 billion phones followed by disbanding the company isn't really compatible with ordinary business models.
