In next 10 years, will Jap still produce clamshell phone ?
Probably not but it would be sad since it's kinda iconic in anime.
They'd still be in anime for another 5 decades.
See: bloomers and school swimsuits
And in the next 10 years, people will still call it "clamshell phone"
I wish they'd make a comeback.
I hate the modern smartphone form factor.
Agreed, I still have my e-1150. Smartphones having their screens exposed all the time is just asking for them to get scratched and broken.
I still have one.
I never use it because I have nobody to talk to though. Every month more and more money gets put on it and I have about 1000 hours by now.
You're telling me they don't actually have those?
Flip phones with all the smart phone features such as internet, email, scheduling etc etc are pretty popular in asia, but i guess over here people just like their big ass screens.
The new Samsung phones might as well be tablet computers
They haven't had bloomers in like a decade or more. Same with the old school swimsuits.
Now it's athletic shorts and racing suits. Literally the same brands and styles you'd see in the west.
>not having a clamshell phone
I know. I just upgraded to the next Galaxy and my thumb doesn't even go all the way across any more.
A more important question is, why do they use cell phones which look exactly as the one in our world in fantasy settings? Notoriously.
I can't recall seeing many modern phones in anime
Sasuga /a/ is full of manlets.
If you wanted a phone where you could do that you shouldn't have bought a galaxy note. I have one and the large screen is so fucking great for watching anime and reading manga and LNs.
I'm not a manlet, I just have small hands.
That's cute OP.
Pockets aren't even made to hold the Notes properly. Buying a Note is full retard.
Looking at the current gen phone makes me somewhat happy I still have this brick that doesn't break even when falling out of my car/pocket.
Now like I use it for anything more than an alarm clock and clock anyways.
>I still have my e-1150
Are you me?
get yourself a drop holster for your phone.
My smartphone doesn't break either.
Anon... No. Please don't do that.
>going /fa/ just to house your /fa/ phone
Riajuu pls go.
grow up, when you only need a phone or text, that kind of old phone is alright. I would still use it. if I had it. (stolen 2 times)
No let me feel superior with me inferior technology, faggot.
Obviously because it's not smart enough.
Plus it's easy to send emails with it in Japan.
Too many American Kids think they need smartphones.
I still have my Nokia 3310
>want a phone like that
>can't find any since shops are mostly selling smartphones
I just need a phone for messages and calls, not for fancy shit that I can do with a computer.
I wish there was a flip phone that actually could run a proper OS and wasn't such a mess to use.
A Note is made for girls, they can easily fit into their handbags.
you all look like old people on the verge of death looking down on everything that came up after them stopping being teenager. Get your shit together /a/.
I still have my Nokia 3710.
The only practical problem is the camera software bugging out every so often, instead of giving me a shit picture and letting me deal with it.
What I want would be the same chassis, a 800x480 (up from the current 320x240) display and a five years newer CPU.
all i want is a watch that works as a phone
but japan won't stop with the clamshell phones so it'll never happen
Go fuck yourself faggot. I am very comfortable sitting in my rocking chair on my porch.
Yeah, but clamshell phones are becoming less and less common in SoL shows now.
>wearing tight pants
It fits in my pocket just fine.
Do you wear nigger pants or something?
It only fits deep pockets. Any regular sized pocket will have it sticking out the top.
I wear khakis so they do have pretty deep pockets. A 3DSXL fits in there fine.
Wtf is SOL?
You're fucking with me, right?
Seinen Over Load, totally badass stuff with gore, fighting, sex and blood.
I still use mine.
the only genre that /a/ watches
>keep a fancy smartphone
>there's no service on it
>I keep a $10 stock flip phone in my other pocket for calling and texting
I just want to read my e-books/manga and talk on the phone at the same time when people call me. And not have my ringtone suddenly blast my ears out when I'm listening to music.
a music note ... galaxy note
do re mi fa sol....
>not using pic related
I always thought those were cool looking. The slide action is sorta meh though.
They are the only phone you can use with PANACHE. Try dramatically closing down an iPhone as you're about to implement your plan, try. Hint: You can't.
i think this explains everything
Well that explains the market for the ruggedized phones that Casio makes.
That doesn't explain everything. If anything, that just raises further questions.
Is it recording?
That looks painful
A part of me has died.
I miss my old brick, I dropped my smartphone last night and the screen cracked. I must have dropped my brick numerous times and it went through the washing machine once too, still worked.
Last summer lineup only had 2 flip phones, japan hasn't made a android flip-phone since 2011(007sh) because the android battery drain is too much and flipphones have quite small batteries.
The Docomo OS which they stick on almost every flip-phone since years ago is dying and not keeping up with the newer smartphones in terms of developers.
Apple seems to have grip on most of the market however, japan took forever to get on the android boat so they're still a small market there.
Only reason why its only ever taken off the past two years was that companies were able to stick their own market app up and skip the market fee on the ios/android market and certain apps that break the googles terms and series, ie hard porn published via the custom markets.
That crotch flap on the old swimsuits was there to allow less elastic material to be used without sacrificing mobility and to allow an exit point for water that gets in from the chest. It's not entirely necessary for more elastic materials.
The real victim here is the nice horizontal line that accentuated the hips.
I can't text without looking at my smartphone. These old mobile phones are still better IMO
I am intrigued.
Do you think they (ShinRa) use Android OS ?
I hope yes. The unoriginal desing on current smart phones is disgusting.
None of those are current.
So long as it's got one color LCD it's good enough for me.
Now are just bigger.
I literally just finished fapping to that 30 seconds ago
You can't be serious, my god.
Convergent evolution is a thing, deal with it.
I knew about the bloomers, but school swimsuits is news to me.
No, he's not. The change started in the mid-90's.
Admit it, /a/, you still want one of these.
I've really thought about getting one of these sexy things just for texting on. I used to be pretty fast with T9 before smartphone keyboards spoiled me.
