why do anime characters only have flip phones in modern anime
>>
Apple is foreign
Its never good to advertise gaijin pig products even if it ends up being unrealistic
So even if 99% of japs have iphones anime will keep the flip phones, deal with it

Because Koreans and Japanese prefer physical buttons. (I personally want slider phones to come back)
If you think their flip phones have worse characteristics than modern smartphones you are wrong.
>>
>>152497766
Because most source material is old as fuck and when it started, flip phones were still popular.
>>
Because flip phones are great.

Source material.

For example take 'Index'
Toma uses a flip phone because that's what he used in the source material.
While satan uses a smartphone because they never specified what she uses and hence could use a up to date model in the anime.

Japan still uses Pentium II with windows 2000 installed, so they'll still use flip phones.

Search "Gara-Kei" my friend

Japanese people made a fashion out of flip phones and even now that smartphones are like 99.5% of the phone sales, they think it's fashionable.
>>
>>152497766
I prefer flip phones to any other kind of phone. They are cute and let me contact another dimensions.

Because smartphones only recently became popular in Japan and it's still relatively common to see them.
