Smartphone Protest?

Post by cHr0mChIk on Sun Feb 09, 2014 11:21 am

Mobile Phones have definitely evolved through years, and the "Smartphones" of today have soo many functions and, we're forgetting their original intended function. To call people!

These days phones are like mini computers in our pockets, we use internet, play games, and do all these things. ON A PHONE!

Of course, it's awesome that a cell phone has all these functions, and pretty handy also. All these things in one device.. camera, computer, a gaming console,.. but don't we have other portable devices for that?

Some people I know, are kinda "protesting" against Smartphones. They got these old indestructible Nokia phones:

Spoiler:








...and are surprisingly happy with them. They got them extreeeeeeeeemly cheap, the battery lasts for weeks. They fall from any height and nothing happens to them, they can CALL and TEXT only. The 2 main functions of a mobile phone. They can use that phone all the time.

For other stuff, like internet and games, they got other portable consoles.

They hate smartphones, I understand them. Although I do own one xD

What do you think about this protest against smartphones? Do you think all these functions are useless, since we got tablets, iPads, PSP-s, and other stuff... would you get a phone like that?

People have their own opinions, but maybe if they tried using a smartphone they would switch over to one. No i wouldnt get a phone like that. It is so shitty! Smartphones all the way!

All of them actually had smartphones before this. They got sick of them so they got these. As I said, these phones are pretty much indestructible and battery lasts for weeks. And of course the purpose of a phone is to call people and these phones are perfect for that. I never said I didn't like smartphones, I own one. I'm just sharing their oppinions to see what you guys think about them.

and just one little thing... you could say: ,,these phones suck" instead of calling them shi**y.. My life, and the way others treat me has significantly changed since I've stopped swearing. Try it out yourself, it's a friendly advice :-)

Ah i see, thats their opinions then. The non destructiblity and the battery that lasts for weeks does make it a nice basic phone.

Also thanks for the advice, but i highly doubt im going to change how i talk or say things Razz

Well, the basic cellphone with basic functions is mostly what people need these days, to be honest. I'll agree with the opinion posted. I own a smartphone, and sure it goes to the internet, games, etc., I'd never replace it FOR a computer or a gaming console. Ever. There's only so much a smartphone can do versus the actual things that were made to do said "job."

The non-destructibility and lasting battery is great, too. So if I had to, I'd get one maybe for just a work phone or business only, and keep my smartphone for personal stuff. A smartphone battery can last just as long if it's cared for properly. But the amount of maintenance it needs if it doesn't work versus the basic phone that only needs a battery change or the occasional SIM card.

Yeah.

Still, it's a very good view on phones.
