Man, those phones gave so much nostalgia. Way back in highschool, the nokia 6230i is one of my dream phones ever. I remember looking at it in our magazine countless times each. I adore the simplicity and beauty of its design. I also remember the Xperia Ray which I was about to buy as my first touchscreen phone, but went for Xperia P instead. Nice phone choices btw!!
i can relate to your write up. Thank you for reminding good old days :) I've been visiting gsmarena since 2008 and it makes me happy remembering the past.
Totally agree, Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray is the most beautiful phone I have owned, and it's also the only phone I flashed with custom ROM to keep it going.
I will take "clunky Symbian" as a bad joke.
Symbian is the best OS i've ever used. Well, from a heavy user's standpoint.
Kind of real story .. it’s writers personal experience personal phones and personal pro cons ... nice and real
Sony ericsson ray.... What a design.. The feel we get from unique glowing half circle led in dark was just awesome... . I really miss it... Its under power and heating problem made me to sell it... I thing sony can reintroduce it with 5 inch screen with snapdragon 630...
If you love music, you shouldn't part with 3.5mm jack. Though we hear under 20Hz very badly, its not like we don't hear at all. Also cannot imagine someone to not like low tones in music. Same as with flac/wav/vinyl vs. mp3, if source is of high quality, you will at least feel difference, if not hear. Not sure in what frequencies is music recorded now... so for some it may mean no difference.
I know that not every story is insteresting. But I believe that every story has subliminal message.

For what it's worth, this ain't a story of a legendary man in the world.

Only book authors are needed to create an intimidating story, for a fact that they will be published to the society and many people would read.
Unless this story will be published as a book, I don't see the point of readers wanting a very exciting story here.
A story is a story; it can be different from person to person, some may be interesting while some may not be. If you're looking for a mind-blowing story, you have come to a wrong place.
Kiyasuriin, 18 Feb 2018Not every person's story has to be exciting, troll. When you're working as a tech journalist, it's mandatory that you know how to write and engage your readers. Clearly you have little comprehension of how the world works. Maybe you shouldn't have skipped classes.
A proud Nokia 5310XM user as well. What a phone! Nice audio quality via the earphones, and the dedicated music buttons!!

Hey Peter... Have you tried out the Meizu Pro 7? sure. It does not come with memory expansion. (I don't know if you care or not. ^^;) Grab the Pro 7 plus. you'll enjoy it. (it's 5.7incher. with AMAZING sound, and even better when docked to headphones.) I wanted to buy it myself. but I myself don't like to work with mediatek phones (not enough power when I need it) but I am sure you can manage with it.
It's true that smartphones today have a very similar form factor and one isn't a lot different from the other. The only smartphone that I found to stand apart from the rest has been Samsung's note, especially the Note 4. The S pen can do stuff that no other phone can, and the IR blaster to which gets along with electronics at home easily. Yes the notes of today still have the S pen and its more precise than the older ones but I miss the support of the IR blaster
