droid 3. I used the extended battery with it, a tempered glass screen and the otterbox rim that goes around the screen (the full case wouldn't fit with the extended battery back)

I got a samsung galaxy note 3, and it still doesn't compare, everything about the droid 3 made it my favoritest phone ever, built-in hardware keyboard included.
that phone took such a beating over the years I used it.

Wherever it is, I hope it found a good home :3

First and current smartphone.

Although battery is wearing down and it's noticeably starting to slow down with more modern and heavy apps.

What new phones have easily removable storage, easily removable battery, metal frame, and matte grippy surface? Usually I just hide phone threads..
>>
First was an HTC Aria. I loved that phone. It had a soft touch back, optical trackpad, and was tiny as hell. I'd be down for an updated version with the same aesthetics.

It was also bright yellow on the inside, which was weird because it didn't show through anywhere on the phone. You could only see it when changing the SIM/battery/SD card.

A Nokia 5230

The worst phone I've ever owned.

>256mb RAM
Symbian is already sluggish, the lack of RAM certainly didn't help alleviate the situation
>Resistive screen
Had to press extra hard on the screen to make it register my clicks. Frustrating experience.
>No Wifi
Absolutely awful, it had no reason not to include such a basic feature.
>2MP camera
To say potato, would be an understatement
>70mb internal memory
Severely limits the permitted installed apps. Absolute suckage.
>very limited customization
>can't install half the apps you download due to some certificate bullshit

Upgrading to a quad-core 1.5Ghz, 2gb ram, 13mp camera chinkphone was such a great feeling.

HTC HD7. Great phone, after the main board had to get replaced twice. Once by HTC and once by my carrier. Honestly, it worked better after my carrier had a look at it. Not enamoured with HTC's build quality and reliability, so the next phone was a Lumia 1020.

I'd be all for a Nintenphone, but those controls look uncomfortable as fuck. It'd be extremely top-heavy and it'd kill your hands after a few minutes.
It'd be more like NIntendo to provide a controller case with the phone so the phone could be held in a landscape format and the size wouldn't be compromised when users weren't using physical controls.
Of course the phone would also make use of outdated specs to keep costs down while using interesting gimmicks to keep sales up.

if "they" are intercepting your data anyway cant they do that with your regular internet connection anyway?

I understand the privacy concern but others wont: the typical "if you arent doing anything to hide then why worry" as well as "why would they care about you?"

but your loss of privacy is the cost of their "safety" as they see it

those of us who like our privacy will be more and more viewed as deviants and threats to the new world order

No matter what anyone says this was really the first proper smart phone available. Nokia N-70. I had this in 2004 I think. After the N-75 and N-90 Android phones hit the market. Smart phones never got back to the same level for another 8 years I reckon, gee....t..t..th...thanks Jewgle.

I can't remember how much I paid for the dock BUT it was cheaper than any netbook/laptop at the time, so that's why I bought it.

it was slow as balls but worked great for taking notes in class. I can only imagine how zippy something like that would be today with todays technology.

A friend's dad gave me a T-Mobile MDA 2 (pic related) which had some sort of (classic) Windows mobile on it. I discovered the xda forums that way, flashed a few other things, etc.

My first real smartphone by modern standards would be the Motorola Milestone/Droid 1

Rooted it, installed CM7.2 - the last official and non-buggy version (ICS and JB roms are just so fucking buggy - they were dropping calls like mad, and about the SD card as app partition, I can't do this, cuz the SD card is pretty small already (a gig).

There will always be small stupid problems that the devs will never fix. Got no GPS, have to enter PIN every 5 min, can't use QR codes? Too bad, fix it yourself dummy. OH wait you can't, there's no LG support after Android version x.y... etc.

Just get the Motorola, it's got Lollipop officially and just werks.

I wonder why there are no more phys keyboard android phones.
Yes, I realize that it's a niche because most people prefer their phone to be thinner and keyboard adds thickness, but surely it can't be THAT much of a niche.
The only remaining phones with pkb seem to be blackberries

I'll try that, but even if I do, most of the apps I want to run are for at least ICS.

Core 2's a low midrange samsung phone.

Motorolas are available in my country, but are kinda expensive off contract (and there's no contract versions!) And do they have SD cards? Cause I'm seeing both 8 and 16 gig versions.
>>
>>46896948
the distance between keyboard level and screen level is way too big. It will be probably also top-heavy, having all internals inside the screen and not inside the keyboard like proper sliders. Still, it's good that someone is at least making an effort.

It's not a slider though.
The keyboard is held on by magnets, so you pop it off and connect it with the pogo pins then you type

They said the idea being that you can leave the keyboard at home if you don't need it

I was able to get the actual dock app with a tv mod using a micro hdmi port but yeah it was pretty slow. I guess I didn't think about the netbook prices back then I was too absorb in my big-huge-gaymen computer.

I have done little research on new-and-improved models like the laptop dock and none of which are currentlt available, and I believe since netbook prices are dropping more and more they don't seem as popular.

great concept though

Amazing, if you ask me. In my ideal world, we all have one device that fits in the palm of your hand. When you get home, you plug it into your desktop monitor, when you want to watch TV, you plug it into your 50 inch TV. It plays every game, has unlimited extremely fast access to the internet, and comes with a wide array of accessories, such as a controller dock, so you can play games right on the screen on the go, ala phonejoy (Makes it look like a PSVita). Or a laptop dock, so you can use a more or less full sized keyboard and larger screen on the go.

Every piece of technology you need, minus the displays and other accessories, in one single device.

First smart phone was the Droid 1. Unfortunately it only lasted a year or so before breaking. Loved that thing.

Second was Droid X, and is still my current phone. Figured I wouldn't need a keyboard anymore thanks to the smart touch programs. Nope. Keyboards are faaaaaar better. I really want to upgrade from this old pos, but the only phone that looks remotely decent is the Droid Turbo or w/e.

I want to go back to keyboard sliders. That shit was dope. Fuck the new generation.

The original iPhone was my first smart phone. Then I got a Droid X because AT&T sucked moose dick. I actually kept using the iPhone for Skype calls though for long after I switched. Such a wonderful little device.

I lost it when I forgot to take it out of my pants after an anniversary night out, when I forgot to take it out of my pants pocket and it ended up going into the washing machine because the old lady was still drunk at 3AM and got the urge to do laundry.
