    A Siemens phone. Damn those were the good old days, sharing 3gp videos and java games through IR. I wish I could go back in time.

    I had a cheap low-end Samsung carrier phone as my first (Samsung On5, I belive it was). I didn't even own a phone until halfway through my senior year in high school, so it's relatively recent. The phone I'm typing this post on isn't really that much better, honestly (J3 Emerge).

    The Motorola Razr. I think I got it on my first day of high school so I could have something to call my parents with in case of emergency. For the time, it looked so cool.

    My first phone was a Samsung Galaxy S2, it was the phone from my mum, then she handed over it to my sister, and when she was done, she handed it over to me.
    I only had it for a year (it survived at least 7 years), because I dropped it one day, and the scereen inside broke.

    Then I got the Samsung Galaxy J5 for my birthday, literally the same thing happend, and I broke it after 6 months, this time with a screen replacement, and it’s still fine from now.

    I guess you mean first cell phone?
    Then an Alcatel OT331 probably some 15 years ago.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Otherwise, it was an (also) unremarkable Telefónica de Argentina Forma model landline phone.

    I forgot
    My first phone was an LG Rumor. Good ol' slideout keyboard phone from 2007.

    Then I got a Samsung Rant, which was basically just a more advanced LG Rumor for the most part. I remember you could sideload some Java based games on it, which I did for a few things.

    Then a Samsung Instinct, which was like a "smart phone competitor" that was meant to compete with the iPhone, and with Android that had just come out. It was fucking awful, had 0 similar capabilities beyond perhaps having an internet browser. Got an Instinct 2 a year later when that released, just as awful.

    And then finally an HTC Evo, my first "true" smartphone. Everything after that is just Android phones so not as interesting.
