Finally Japan got rid of their outdated phones and started to use superior smartphones.

You can still some flip phones sometimes. But mostly yeah. It had been bothering me for a while too.
I thought it was just because the shit that gets adapted is from source material 3-4 years old.
Guess it's finally catching up

I was just in Japan and it's about 85% smartphones now. Still see flip phones occasionally. They still type one-handed though, unlike every person I've seen in my home country who does some kind of dual finger action.

Phone charms are out as well, the only time I saw any actually on a phone was on some white guy's at comiket.

I want my flip fax machines back.

Do they still use email on their phones?

Text messages in Japan don't work the same way they do here. You can't text people who are on different carriers, so everyone uses e-mail instead.

I feel like dying everytime.

Someone already died for your feel.

It varies wildly.
For example Ichigo from Bleach has been the owner of smartphone with a particularly big display since 2010.
While in 2012 he borrowed Urahara's flip phone, said phone came with a Windows-like UI for the record.

I am using Bleach as an example because Bleach is mainstream shounen and mainstream shounen tend to fall behind technologically.

But why? Can I blame Apple for this?

>>100597958
Yes

In that respect, their method has always been superior. It's far more cost effective to use the internet than a messaging service you have to pay extra for.

Japan has actual push mail. And not the faux push mail we have.

If anything, the method we use is more akin to some kind of pull-mail. But in Japan, their servers actually pushes the mail to your phone upon it being received, giving you the message instantly.
