Let’s start by saying that I’m naturally a collector, I collect phones, games, books, accessories, and even caps! So you see collecting runs in my blood. I’ll post every now and about one of the stuff that I collect. As I opened my cabinet, I found that I’ve a pile of phones and smartphones that I owned, never knew I had this many! I recall I sold several phones to my friends and shops in Sharq but I still got many.
Now I’ll list list down the phones that I bought/used before:
Panasonic GD30: Officially this was my first ever cellphone. I got it back in the year 1997 if I remember correctly. It had a block-design with monochrome display and supported GSM network
Motorola Startek: This was one of the coolest and most prestigious phones back in the late 90s, it was so slim and so cool to have.
Siemens SL45: This was a cool phone, it was one of the smallest phones in it’s time and it also played MP3 and FM radio.
Sony Ericsson T68i: I remember it was my first ever colored screen phone, it was really special back then.
Sony Ericsson Walkman: I loved the music player and headset on this phone, it was cool for the gym and walkway.
Motorola Razr V3: It was so tiny, so slim and sharp looking. I think it was the slimmest on the market but with very limited capabilities.
Nokia N73: The camera was great in this phone and the Symbian firmware was easy to browse compared to other phones.
Nokia N95 8GB: I remember this phone was marketed for it’s massive internal storage memory capacity, you see 8GB was so huge back then. Also I liked the Spiderman packaging, it tempted me to get it.
Sony Ericsson W980: I received it as a gift from a friend but it didn’t last for long with me.
BlackBerry Torch 9800: It was my first ever smartphone when BlackBerry was a big player in the game. Though I never liked it, too many bugs and glitches.
Sony Ericsson T700: Yet another gift and never used it.
iPhone 4: I resisted the temptation for long time before I get into Apple world. This was given to me as a gift and I’ve to say that Apple iOS was the most friendly firmware that I’ve experienced. Also it made internet browsing very friendly especially with introduction of the the multi-touch feature.
HTC ChaCha: I got it but never used it. It was a giveway in a competition that I organized on BananaQ8 blog.
BlackBerry Bold 9900: I bought this phone because I wanted to broadcast blog posts for BBM users. It’s slow and irritating sometimes and it felt really out-of-date when compared to iPhone and Android smartphones. BlackBerry popularity was already declining.
IDEOS XS: I received it as a gift, never used it though. I think it’s from China.
Samsung Galaxy Note II: This is my first ever smartphone from Samsung. It’s bulky and I’d rather call it a Phablet (get it?), but I just loved using it in every aspect. I’m still using it and the only thing that I hate about it is the night photography. [link]
There are a few other phones that I got but these were the ones that I enjoyed using in one way or another. I wish there’s a company in Kuwait that I can donate these old phones to for recycling.
Now what is the best phone/smartphone have you ever used?
