Remember the time when the phones had buttons?
2000’s Phones were pretty innovative. We had brick phones, flip phones, sliding phones, and phones that made a sick 360° rotation to open (like Motorola Aura).
Nokia was a champion in the innovation, as far as I remember, until iPhones came out. I am not sure what happened to Nokia after, but I was very surprised to find out that you can still buy the most iconic models.
Coolest (refurbished) Old-school Phones

I had one of these (the ‘original’ silver one), and it was the coolest phone ever: I could play with the flip all day long.

A phone that looked like a video game console; which, ironically, was pretty shitty as a game console. But, as I remember, it was still ‘cool’ to own one of these.
