If you don't control the radio, you don't control the phone. You have to have a device that you can kill at the battery level.

I have been considering building a phone, based on a cell module (other people have done it). By using a fet/ssr on the power supply to the cell module, you really can have a stand alone full linux system and know (via a LED display) if the external radio module is powered.

Pretty much.
I'm a paramedic I've seen shitloads of people (including me) using this one.
It's cheap, indestructible, but the best part about it is you can wash it under running water and rinse it with sanitizer.

If only it had a better battery.
For such a beefy clunky device you still have to charge it quite often.
When not used it holds like 40 days on battery, but calls and messaging drain it pretty fast.
2000mAh instead of 1300mAh wouldn't hurt 2bh

Not for me, I pick minimal look with maximal bang. Ability to tinker with your device is the absolute must for me, started with my Siemens c75, then SE ages, with elfs n shit I made my homescreen look like Windows phone before it even was created, big clipped text, solid colors, etc. You don't need to sacrifice features to have a sleek look, and if you actually want to get rid of all the abilities modern phones provide why don't you go inna fuckin woods?

need advice.

I'm thinking about switching to pic related. It's a Docomo SH-06G.

It runs Android 4.4.4 but does not have Google Play and cannot be installed.

However you can install non-google APK such as WhatsApp and Facebook.

I currently use a smartphone, but I'm going to school in Janurary and need no distractions (gaming on my current smartphone).

Should I get this /g/?

I live in an Asian country (not Japan) and this phone has been unlocked for use on any GSM network.

It only runs on 3G (no LTE).

>>51575685
Get the LG Wine
>>
Wasn't there an anon that was porting all the japanese flip-smartphones into a way to be usable in western locations?
>>
>>51575809
my country has it (for quite some time).

the store that imports Korean and Japanese phones even has the updated model to the LG Wine Smart , the LG Gentle.

They also got a shipment of Samsung Galaxy Folder... however I don't like the design of the LG Gentle/Wine Smart and Samsung G. Folder. They're both thicker than Docomo SH-06G..

>>51575820
don't know who you talking about, but I'm pretty knowledgeable with android flip phones. I've been following them since Android is a thing.

These are the current Android phones that have been unlocked for use around any GSM network (need sim card):

Sharp SH7218u
Sharp SH7228u
Sharp 007SH
LG Wine Smart
LG Gentle
Samsung Galaxy Golden Series W899
Samsung Galaxy Folder
Sharp Aquos SHF K 31
Sharp Aquos SHF K 31
Sharp SH-06G

There's one more that's off branded and can be found on eBay and Amazon US, but i forget the name..
>>
>>51575867
oh and I forgot the Lenovo A288T or something.. it's basically a Samsung Galaxy Golden but rebranded to Lenovo. Same physical build including keypad but different software.

the problem with 90% of Android flip phones is that they're too goddamn thick. The Japanese flip phones are perfect physically, however they always shit on the software.

The SH-06G ONLY runs on 3G network, cannot connect to wifi and has no Google Play, making it more of a feature phone than a smartphone.

The Aquos K SHF31 is near perfect, but it's sold out in my local country..

Tempted to get the SH-06G because it's one sexy mother fucker.

>>51576071

>>51575974 Here

I personally just like being able to have a great battery charge, and having a small carry pouch that can clip to my waist instead of a giant brick inside my pockets . Other issues of course are the fact that as I sort of pointed out the companies keep wanting to just rip you the fuck off with data charges. Having to be paranoid about internet and text usage? My god it's like I'm back to the late 90s using dialup and at least there AIM and shit was free.
>>
I'm not really into this subject so I've got a question - are dumbphones still using those deprecated, laggy, buggy and repulsive operating systems?
Honestly, the only thing that keeps me from buying one just for teh lulz is horrible software and displays from 18th century.

Not OP but that is one thing that bothers me is that the US market has mostly aimed a people that just want big exposed screen behemiths and all the awesome smaller smart phones you can't get unless you import it and even ignoring the price factors involved, you have to make sure 1. It even has support for your language 2. Your cell provider can even support the thing.
3. Waiting for it to get to you.
>>
>>51576869
>1. It even has support for your language
It comes in English or Japanese. Hell, 98% of Japan-exclusive phones come preinstalled with Japanese or English language menus. The shop I go to is able to hack it and install Chinese onto Japanese phones.

>2. Your cell provider can even support the thing.
Many smartphones released under Docomo and Softbank will give you 3G or LTE speeds in Europe and North America. They started having an open policy last year where any phone that's released after 2014 and have been in service for more than 6 months can be unlocked. Check the UTMS bands of the phone and your local carrier to see if you'll get the speeds you want.

3. Waiting for it to get to you.
Takes up to 2 weeks at most if you order phones on eBay. 3 weeks if you're unlucky cause customs is checking the phone to see there's no battery leaks or potential bomb device.
>>
>>51574428
>295.00 €

>>51576962
Well my point is that they should put these into the regular market (as in just walk into any store, see ads for them on tv etc you know normie things) without having to go through hoops such as that. I'm hopeful though with recent trends that maybe it'll start to happen?

Kind of, but not really. All I'm asking for are slight extensions on things that are already included in all dumbphones, I don't really see it as a sacrifice in simplicity to beef up the web browser a little or add streaming options to the built-in music player.

The camera is obviously a pipe dream, but the former two I don't really think miss the point at all. A simple device that doesn't run a shitty, bloated toy OS but can still properly render an eBay listing, connect to a spotify account or properly view email attachments doesn't seem that far-fetched a concept.
