/g/'s new favorite phone because you're autistic nerds
>>83826436maybe if my 3310 3g breaks
>>83826436And it's going to have that abomination baby android i.e. kaiOS
That's not the brick phone, the brick phone was the massive things from the 1980s. You see, it looks like a brick.
>>83826488KaiOS most likely
>>83826488with 16mb ram? are you having a bubble?
>>83826488yes it runs a 8Mb android install on 16Mb of RAM
>>83826488>>83826495its the same as the 3310, S30+so the absolute most basic features
>>83826472I'd pay 40 bucks max for it, and I hope it doesn't have fb.
>>83826507The only thing I dislike about that OS is that I can't remove/disable things I don't use e.g. Twitter, Facebook, and the like.
>>83826519well iirc its not installed on the phone anywhereits all just weblinks to stripped down versions of the sitesso zuck isnt hiding in you 16MB RAM nokia
>>83826436Why do they have to make the phones so fucking bland? It has no soul
>>83826519Music player is absolute crap.2005 phones had better features than these new dumbphones.
>>83826578>tool has to have soul>>>/reddit/
>>83826636>tool doesn't have to have a soul>>>/reddit/r/funkopop
>>83826436KaiOS is shit - worse for privacy than degoogled android.Probably doesn't even have lte.It also isn't cool. If you're using an original Nokia there's a cool factor. You could call it "soul". The new one is either a drug dealer's phone or for homeless people.
>>83826538It's not about background applications running, it's about it affecting the experience of accessing the other parts of the phone. >>83826591I don't buy dumb phones to play music, but the radio feature is nice.
>>83826436>2001>our phones are elegant unlike our competitions bricks >2021>BRO BRICK LMAO BUY RETRO XD
Anyone use something like this for their daily driver? Do people look at you funny?
>>83826591>2005 phones had better features than these new dumbphones.Thats the thing. They purposely make the new dumbphones bad so you dont buy them.I tried one and it was a total joke.My nokia from 2006 actually worked.
>>83826673The battery life is one of its best features. My 3310 3g can go a week without charging.
>>83826693I used it as my daily driver for a while. No one cares. You're not in a movie.
>>83826693just don't look like a drug dealer, and you'll be fine. because thats who buys sub $100 phones like this.
thanks but im sticking to pixel+grapheneOS
>>83826472>microUSB but why
>>83826467what alternative is there?android is not one
i would have bought one right now but no one is selling the fucking thing
>>83826436Would buy if I could find one for sale.
>>83826436How did Nokia go from being on top of the world to reducing themselves to a meme gimmick to sell products off the back of nostalgia?
>>83826696>they purposely make [product] bad so it doesn't sellare you legitimately fucking retarded?
>>83826696This I don't see a single reason to go with this over a refurbished original one that you can get for 10$ off Aliexpress if you don't still have one yourself.
>>83826436Nu-Nokia crap is just chink shit. Their build quality is nothing compared to old phones, it's just chinesium with low end hardware.
>>83826591This, xpressmusic phones shit all over their new crap.
>>83826795>duurrr i wan ol fon but i wan new stuf on ol fon
>>83827247Then why do you want micro USB instead of the original proprietary charger? Fuck off you contrarian cretin.
>>83826715Get a modern phone, underclock and disable wifi and you'll be surprised by how long they last. My S5 would last 5 days.
>>83827192do the refurb ones work with current mobile networks somehow? if not theres no point getting one obviously
>>83827228good memories, mine had dedicated next/previous/play buttons>>83826578buy the banana one then and enjoy spywareOS you nigger
>>83827181Nokia was entrenched. They didn't adapt to new trends in the industry and got left behind.
>>83826457If you’re in the US 3G is going to be phased out starting in 2022
>>83827275No but as far as I know pretty much only the US and Australia have shut off their GSM networks by now so if you live there you're simply fucked but in the rest of the world yeah it still works.
>>83827318>g>usagood morning sir!!
>>83827275only in the first world where people didn't fall for the CDMA shit
>>83826472>making it bigger for no fucking reasonI will now never buy your phone.At least with smartphones it makes some sense because you can watch movies/shitpost but on a dumphone it's pure autism.
>>83827164They tried to write off android as a meme and by the time they tried to play catch up it was too late.
>>83826467KaiOS is a disgusting, proprietary, ultracommercial fork of Firefox OS. It's beyond stupid that it's getting traction and Firefox OS never did when Firefox OS was objectively speaking superior.Both still suck, which is expected of proprietary crapware, i.e. modern-day phone OS. Thank god for source code leaks.
>>83826436Thank you but I'm happy with my Nokia 6220C
>>83826436too bad the phones are cheap chink plastic shit, they are not built the same as the old models
>>83826436They're playing the wrong gameI would pay premium for a modern e72 with android
>>83826436The epitome of SOVL vs SOVLESS
>>83828035Buy a smartphone
>>83826436if it's any lighter or less durable, then there's truly no point
>>83827318T-Mobile already phased it out.
>>83827264>jimmie status: rustled
>>83826467>>83826982>>83827964/g/ is wrong as usual. It uses Nokia's standard Series 30+ (S30+) operating system.
>>83826472Is this a joke?
>>83826436>NokiaNokia died years ago, anon. It's now just a brand name slapped onto chink garbage.
>>83827203THIS so much remember when phones were actually cool & had different OS's installed on em
>>83826693I use a Schok Classic and some black people around my age laughed at me when I was at the arcade at my mall made a call to one of my friends
>>83829489Since this is Android, it supports GPS navigation right? That's probably the biggest thing stopping me from ditching smartphones.And how's the battery?
>>83829489Is this a bot?Is this why the capshka changed?
>>83828627>Buy a smartphone
>>83829382I was poor when these kind of phones were the shit. For some reason merely seeing them makes me seethe internally.
>>83828757>Series 30+Series 40 is vastly superior, but Microsoft holds the license and didn't sell it back to Nokia.
A dumb phone with 4g or more without KaiOS ?
>>83827203It's not just build quality, KaiOS is just inferior to Symbian and S40. Shit has no features.
>>83829695Supposedly there's a way to use Google Maps by going to the Google Maps website and then clicking something to open up the hidden Google Maps app (all Google apps are hidden by the default launcher). The battery is weird, the first few days its pretty poor but then I can go up to 3 days with it on standby. Also, since Google apps are hidden, you can only install apps by downloading the .apk files from the web browser. It has a file manager making this process easy.
>>83831131I forgot to mention, some apps and websites work very well (as long as they're very lightweight) but others are weird since they're designed with touchscreens in mind. The phone will sometimes put a mouse cursor on the screen which is controlled with the directional keys and this can be used to navigate apps and websites that can't use the select-and-highlight style of navigation.
>3 weeks stand byfor how much I actually use a phone proper I could go a year on 6 or 7 charges
>>83826436What else you need, white man?
>>83831847what's the canyon thing?
>>83831851Its a card reader for various card types.Mainly for cameras, but good for SD and other fancy shit.
>>83826636>>83826655Why do you two have cell phones if you never go outside?
>>83831847Very nice goodies. Place them into a bag and you have your everyday carry right there.
>>83831847I have exactly the same Nokia 3310 as my only phone. Typically it's uncharged so the glowniggers could go fuck themselves.It's great but a bit laggy. Also today morning the alarm didn't ring and it was pretty critical. Thankfully I had a custom alaram shellscript running on my main machine and it woke me up.
>>83826472FM radio is actually a dope feature
>>83831973you mean something basically every single phone had since the early 2000s?
>>83832727Most midrange and high end smartphones haven't had FM radio for years.
>>83831973I think HD radio would be way more awesome even though I despise the implementation of it in my area.
>>83832763>OY VEY NEWS AND 40KBPS MUSIC STATIONS THAT ARE 75% ADS ARE A THREAT TO OUR UNLIMITED DATA PLANSThese fuckers are so petty it's unreal.
>>83831969I have a custom ROM running on mine, could share the tools, albeit ya need to make your own flash cable.
>>83831958The Nokia is mine since I was 13.Still works, only had to change the battery after like 9 years.
>>83826436Why would i buy a Nokia if i can get much more out of my phone by buying a Xiaomi QIN?Kaios devices feel fucked up and wrong, they went open source halfway out and there is no proper method to upgrade their images and bannanahackers are cringe.
>>83826795It's targeted to 3rd world countries and in those MicroUSB is more common
>>83830422>w810i I will forever associate this one with my old schoolyard, then getting drunk and losing it and getting a new one
>>83826436>new favorite phonengl, my nokia 5110 of 17 years died around 3 months ago. Looks like I've found a new love.
>>83826513>>83826519>>83826684You zoomershit idiots, it's not a KaiOS phone. It's too basic to do shit, it probably doesn't have any internet access either. The KaiOS phones have far better specs, they use old Snapdragon SoCs, mostly the 205 and 210. This shit has some ARM9 CPU straight from the 90s.
>>83833645Yes, but these idiots thought it had facebook and google and other botnets which I think S30 physically can not. GerdaOS is based though.
no thanks, ill use an iphonestudies show that you are 72% more likely to get laid if you are an iphone chad
>>83833686enjoy giving half your paycheck to some whore who fucks niggers while you're working
>>83829489AYO THIS NIGGA BE USING A SCHOK
>>83833676The 225 runs 30+ and has Facebook.
>>83833726go back to pol incel
>>83832763What? Is this some american thing? Every phone has FM Radio bro
>>83826436Looks like it's not in the us?
>>83833836Pixels and Samsungs, the only common flagships in the US, don't. Only Motorolas and other chinkphones have it. And I think our Sonys don't come with it either.
>>83833836iPhones never had FM radio :(>inb4 "ITODDLERS BTFO"
>>83833730Kek.>>83829695Same. My hold out is email and gps.There are some minimalist smartphones, but they usually do it by just installing a custom home app on Android. I am not interested in a minimalist screen when all the real complexity is still there.
>>83829382The whole pda smartphone section in CompUSA was pure sex. I got fucking shanzi'd buying one of those on eBay in 2018. It was cobbled together from old crusty boards and 3rd party casing it stopped working in a week and I was crushed.
>>83833941>>83833963iPhones never had radio, sure, but didn't know Galaxy didn't either. Probably related to being exynos or some shit
>>83832763>>83833836>>83833941>>83833963>>83834364Try NextRadio, will work in most Snapdragon phones.https://www.gsmarena.com/results.php3?chkFMradio=selected
bros what's a "modern" flip phone tha isn't made out of chinesium?I'm tired of my Xi Owns Me. I just wanna call and hang up darn it.
>>83834431something from kyocera
>>83826472Too expensive. Would've bought for $40.
>>83834468I'll look it up, thank you
