By this I mean something, that is aesthetically superior to smart phone designs but has faded out of existence and popularity due to lacking the tech.
Or if you have a better analogy feel free to go for it.
Dunbine. Bilbine is cool, but its design is nothing compared to Dunbine.
I loved the Razr V3. I would still be using it if I didn't accidentally put it through the wash...and dryer a couple of years ago.
Every other flip-phone has just felt cheap (fuck touchphones)
>Flip Phones faded because it looks like a toy.
that just made my statement more relevant then, how odd.
But honestly, I would rather take a touch screen flip phone(or any new take on the flip phone) over the bricks that we use now. Smartphones have a ton of capabilities that are really cool and usefull, but I still prefer buttons for stuff like texting and the ability to close my phone.
That being said, does anyone have anything to say about japanese flip phones? Those always struck me as being really cool with a lot of functions(compared to what was available in the US)
I don't grasp the premise of this thread.
Bulk, heft and weight. Now, I know we have a few throwbacks here and there, but most modern mecha need to eat a damn sandwich.
thats because you are a fucking idiot. the more moving parts, the more likely it is to break. thats why those Nokia bricks outlasted most Razr flip phones and a modern smartphone will endure much more everyday wear and tear (just dont run it over with a truck).
have we had any popular combiner mechs recently?
That's a not very appealing pic of fx you got there
They gave Tetsujin FX a gun? Even though the characters in the show make a huge deal about not arming Tetsujin with weapons?
It's almost like they didn't care about the artistic credibility of the source material.
The new phones transformed things.
>I guess cell based animation, but people will disagree.
Because that is completely wrong
Cell based animation
In other words cell animation is actually analogous to smart phones, but since smart phones are not dead the analogy therefore doesn't really work.
To this fucking day. There has not been a single phone that has matched the sleak and sexy nature of this phones aesthetic. The day I dropped this phone for a smart phone was the day I learned what regret was.
I've seen many keyboard layouts for phones before, but this is the most confusing. I understand it folds out to be a keyboard but that means you can only use it when you put it on the floor/table. Seems like way more of a hassle
>smart phone mecha designs
look at these Boring and genericness
