What kind of phone do you have?

I just bought a new Samsung today. It looks pretty cool.

No frills. I'm not someone who cares about having a nice phone. I have a £15 phone to call and text, that's it. I have a tablet for my mobile needs so see no use for a smart phone.

I don't have a smartphone either. This is just a thread about phones, man.

Didn't say you did, ma man. I'm so out of the loop on phones that I wouldn't even know if the one you bought is a smart phone or not. I thought it was when I looked at it but I wasn't implying that you're some mindless consumer who has to have the latest gear.

I'm not sure what you mean with your second sentence. I have a phone too - I presumed the thread was about all phones - be it the most state of the art or the most archaic. I was simply stating that my phone is pretty **** and low end but it performs the basic functions I require from a phone so I'm a happy bunny. I don't need a phone which can access the internet, play music etc when I'm out and about because A) I have other things that play music and B) I don't want to browse the internet in cafes or in the street.

It's not a smartphone, I think.
I don't care anyway. I'm only going to use it for texts and calling.

My first one was a Samsung Galaxy Ace 3. My current one is a Vodafone LTE 4G. It was quite cheap, especially by using the points I've accumulated. I first wanted to get a newer Samsung model, but holy ****, they're expensive as hell. And what for? Just to have Samsung apps? Pass.

Yes, that's the point I was making. I only use phones for texting and calling so there's no need for me to have anything fancy. A £15 PAYG is fine by me. In fact I barely use it anyway. I've topped up with £10 twice in the last six months, I think.

I’ve had a iPhone 5s for a couple of years now but it got a huge crack in the screen, so have been thinking about getting a new one, preferably a bigger one to accommodate my big fingers lol

My mom pays for my monthly phone fee, it used to be like 50NOK until that plan stopped existing, now it’s 150NOK for 2gb starting October (used to be 1gb)

I'm still using the iphone 6....in 2021. I'm a cheap bastard and until my phone literally stops working I'm never getting a new one. All I use it for is to make calls, surf the internet and that's basically it. I barely ever play games on my phone or use any apps, so I have no reason to upgrade it.

Just think of all the money I'm saving!

A nice little Galaxy A10e. Works great, plenty of memory, and a decent camera, too.
