I know it seems hard to remember, but there once was a time when mobile phones actually used to look different. Nowadays, most phones look the same and pretty much all do exactly the same thing. But back in the day, there was an array of classic and timeless phones that we still remember now. So, today we are going to reminisce about some of the best classic mobile phones that helped define different periods in the last couple of decades.
Back in 2004, when flip phones were a must-have item, Motorola introduced one of the slickest phones we've seen to this day. Coming in various colour options, the Razr V3 was definitely one of the coolest phones around. Being seen with this classic was by no means embarrassing and definitely made you stand out from the crowd, especially with this gold release (pictured below).
Often cited as the ultimate business phone, this phone wasn't Blackberry's first, but it was potentially their greatest. At the time, it offered amazing features and really helped define how business phones should operate.
Also known as, "The Brick Phone", the DynaTAC is often considered the first real mobile phone. This mobile pretty much revolutionised the way people used phones and was made even more famous by the movie Wall Street. An all time classic that deserves its place on this list.
Before the K800i was introduced, taking pictures with your mobile wasn't really a great experience. I mean, taking a quick snapshot with your attachable Sony Ericcson T68i camera was always fun, until you looked back at the picture and saw that hilarious moment turned into a horrible mess of pixels. The K800i really brought the idea of a "camera phone" to the mainstream market and could take relatively good pictures with its 3.2MP camera.
And now for the ultimate number one classic mobile phone. Launched back in 2000, the Nokia 3310 was an instant classic and has sold more than 120 million handsets to this day. The phone itself was pretty much indestructible. I'm pretty sure you could throw it off a 10 story building into a highway, watch it get run over multiple times and it would still be functioning to this day. It offered classic features and games, such as Snake 2 and the classic ringtone composer. It really was one of the best phones made and the battery life was amazing. In fact, I think my old 3310 might still have a bit of battery since I last used it in 2005.
This list is just a tiny glimpse into some of the all-time best classic mobile phones ever made. Unfortunately, phones today don't let you change the covers anymore, so why not create a personalised phone case to help you stand out again.
