Flip phones being released in 2016. What are my options.
No need for a huge iPhone and pointless apps and games and exorbitant monthly fees in Canada for data plans just so you can clash of clan at work or use the gps 3 times per year.
Wifi would be nice for maps so I can connect at a fast food restaurant and browse maps there.
How the fuck do you watch music anon? That sounds incredible.
>I only use mine to watch music
something seems off here
Exactly. You could have an iPod at home for browsing and music. Instead you pay a big amount for a data plan for the same thing. Lol what a rip off.
Buy a portable gps for your car. So what if updates cost a little every year. Like you'd even need one.
Buy an iPod or iPad for browsing. You can look up an adress before you leave home or print it off.
I swear. People think they need data plans. For what? Uploading selfies? Sending gifs to friends? People need to reevaluate their lives.
reminds me of my dad's phone back when I was a kid
>be 10 or so
>dad gets a new flip phone, pic related
>had something like 50 MB storage
>came out of the box brand new with only 5 MB usable
>look through some of the pre-loaded carrier bloat
>found two or three music videos
>weren't even actual music videos, they were just audio visualizations with little circles that got brighter as the music got louder
>took up 30 MB in total
I've been kinda interested in an android flip phone, but I'm not quite sure what to get. Which one would get 4G in the US? Also looking for one with 1gb ram & expandable storage
buy one of the smart/flip phones from a prepaid phone company. I got my phone for $20 and a plan for $20. really cheap compared to major plans. I use my phone for calls and texts mostly. never used data. One thing you have to remember is shop around and find a plan that fits you.
If I wanted a clam phone it's not to have the same as a touch screen one only with smaller screen, double the size folded and gimped out of the ass. How difficult is it to understand that who wants this sort of phone will not even prefer to have purdy colors and video display capability. They just want a small phone that works solely for texting and making phone calls.
Semi-cheap (<$500) android qwerty flip phone when?
Blackberry, I'm counting on you!
Not in canada but I still use the same flip phone I've had since around 7 or 8 years ago maybe. This one here. I'm totally behind the times when it comes to phones but costs and stuff always was a turn off. It's a shame that you can't get a flip phone in the US that is closer to a smart phone like the ones in Japan without having to import it and shit.
Yeah totally. Also how the battery life is better and since it's smaller I do like that I just have my nice lil pouch that clips to my waist instead of it being in my pockets. Though I'm sure they make something like that for smart phones but prob much bulkier to deal with
Why do samsung have a screen on the outside of the smart flip phone.
Isnt the point of a flip phone durability? Instead they put a fucking screen on the outside for video and browsing that will crack easily. What a crap.
Flip phones should have external screen, but it should be a tiny plastic one (maybe even monochrome) just to show the time and caller name.
Samsung overdid it so their phone is useless, and LG didn't make one at all so their phone is also useless.
