    Quite simple really post the weirdest phone you have ever had, if you have had one mind you.

    for me it was this phone marked as a "Hantel S998"

    It's keypad was odd but shockingly took no time to get used to
    it rang so loud you would have heart attack too and it had a awesome light show to music played through it... oh and as with all Chinese phones it was dual SIM



    however the menu's was in Engerish and as with all Chinese battery's it didn't last long.

    The iPhone 4... Just kidding. Well, I've always used smartphones, so not really all too weird, but due to certain circumstances, I had to sell my Galaxy S2 and use a Sanyo Katana flip phone from Sprint. What's weird for me is that I have to use the numpad if I want to text, so I have started to use chat acronyms and text shorthands. The phone itself is quite solid, durable, and is pretty cool, especially since blue is my favorite color.

    very good smartphone and my first one, weird keypad but very comfortable for gaming, I used to play gameboy using the 1 number for up, 2 for left, asterisk for right, 3 for down, 9 for A, cushion for B, 5 for select and 6 for start.

    Not an Apple fanboy, but the iPhone 7's SoC is one of the most powerful currently on the market. It pushes over 100 GFLOPS on the GPU. That's twice the power of the PS Vita.

    Overpriced, true. But it's not like flagship Androids cost much less. The main aspect of the iPhone one should criticize is the OS, which is outdated and useless compared to Android.

    I mean the A7 SoC. The one powering the iPhone 5S. And I don't own an iPhone. I'm just pointing out the fact that they aren't really underpowered in terms of hardware.

    I still remember my first phone: Nokia 3310:lol: For that time was a high-tech device and now it's just a part of the past. The first word that comes to mind when i think of this phone is Snake
