There were many durable push-button phones, there was one armored car with a camera and a huge screen - Siemens M65
When we talk about rugged smartphones, we mean “Chinese” clinging to decorative panels with unpredictable build quality. When we recall durable push-button phones, we are talking either about “there is…

This phone has turned Samsung from a loser into a “king of the hill” – Samsung C100

All legendary phones can be divided into flagships with memories “I never had that much money, but always dreamed of buying it” and state employees “I got enough for that, but now I tell everyone that it was the best cell phone in the world!”. But here is an exception to the rule – not a penny, but not prohibitively expensive mobile phone, which was not only popular in life, but was able to make clear in 2003 how Samsung differs from all its competitors.

It’s a wonderful time when Samsung phones were rare for fans to show off

15 legendary phones of the early 2000s
Recall what happened in 2003 will now be difficult for absolutely all categories of readers. Some of them – because they were not born then (like most of the “Internet fighters” in the comments to articles about mobile phones), but others are corrupted by memory, because we guys are not young, and therefore we remember much better figures of your blood pressure than the lyrics of the song “And I flew everything” from that same year 2003.

And even worse, remember the phones of the beginning of the two thousandth. But then they were experiencing Continue reading

How did we generally use push-button phones? They were terrible.

“Previously, the grass was greener, and condensed milk was tastier” – this idea regarding anything is extremely popular, and objections are usually not considered. Even with regard to the mobile market, some are still convinced that they used to make suitable products, but now they are full of rubbish.
Few people recall that in addition to really pleasant autonomy (smartphones worked for three days, and ordinary phones, in general, for weeks), everything else was just awful.

Of course, part of the things described below is simply a lack of technological development, even directly with non-connected phones (for example, cloud storage systems). But not all.

Children’s Internet
When Steve Jobs introduced the very first iPhone, he mentioned the “normal” browser as one of the key features of the new product. According to him, everything that was before is some kind of inferior, as if “children’s” Internet (on mobile phones). Continue reading

The first budget Samsung in history that is better than the Chinese – Galaxy M20 review

I have in my hands a smartphone from Samsung for 12 thousand rubles. Okay, at the start it was sold for as much as 14 thousand, but now at Tmall – in the only place where you can buy it officially in Russia (yes, this is official) – for quite some time now there has been a discount of up to 11,471.80 rubles. And for the money he is just beautiful. Nearly.

The very existence of the Galaxy M20 is hard to believe. But this is the best evidence that Samsung holds its tail with a gun. That is why the chances of surviving this company are still greater than that of Apple, which (in the smartphone market) really has nothing but the same “show-offs”. I say this as a former iPhone user who used all the company’s smartphones from the iPhone 3G to the iPhone X, on which it became clear that the company did not know how and where to go, and that Tim Cook would never Continue reading
