Thumbs Up Flipper Phone, Anyone?

Quite like the idea of an Android flip-phone.

Makes a change to the common or garden slab phones.

It's not a Moto, It's a Samsung.



@K Thanks for posting one from your album!
Such luxuriant hair!

I want a choice of form factors for my next phone.

And this one looks interesting.

Boxing Hi-Jacking Nev's old fashioned phone thread.

I'm gerrin rid of my iPhone 5s. Thoroughly ****ed off with them updating it and my docks and chargers not working.
So I'm going back on the company phone scheme. They pay for it and in my case I put my own SIM in.
Choices are a crap iPhone 6 or a Galaxy S6 (not Edge).
What do you reckon?

Ignore TT4N's question because flip phones are s h i t.

I use it as a TV remote/mini tablet at home (WiFi only.

Get the latest Xiaomi. e.g.:

did you see the star trek communicator? not really a phone, more like a handsfree bluetooth device, but is that a cool flipper or what?

Yes please, any development that starts to move us away from massive phones that won't fit in the pocket of a cheap pair of jeans. I really want one you can screw up into a small ball.

Still have a working Sony Ericsson W995i in my cupboard.
Best quality music phone I've had.

I have a W880i (still in use, confiscated by the better half) and a C905 also in use.

the wife has gone through 2 smart phones, a dumb touchscreen phone and an alcatel similar to the W880i concept (i liked that one, but it got stolen).

Sad to think that after a decade of phone designs
everything ended up as a featureless slab.
