Old-school phones

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.
