15 years of mobile phones
  1. Bosch 509, 2000
    The company that made ovens made a phone. It was orange and best feature was ring tones for text messages
  2. Phillips Savvy, 2001
    One of the first phones you could send emoticon like images (only to people who had the same phone)
  3. Panasonic GD67, 2002
    Had a clear backing which you could put an picture inside. First colour screen
  4. Nokia 2280, 2003
    CDMA network. Free phone with 2 year student contract. Made a great torch. Back to no colour.
  5. Sanyo 7400, 2004
    Flip phone with colour screen and polyphonic ring tones. Pretty great phone with rubber edges (helpful if dropped). I think it also had P2Talk which never caught on. Shame it was CDMA only.
  6. Motorola Razor v3, 2006
    Terrible phone. Menu system that didn't make any sense. Downgrade from Sanyo. Flip phone phase continues.
  7. Nokia N95, 2007
    The best phone ever. 5MP camera, GPS with Nokia Maps and a web browser.
  8. Sony Ericsson W580i, 2010
    Walkman phone from work. Not as good as my N95.
  9. HTC Magic, 2011
    First android (Jellytip?) blurry camera. Not great.
  10. HTC 7 Trophy 2011
    Windows phone 7. Actually pretty cool integration with Facebook. Corporate Email and calendar. Decent camera (5MP)
  11. iPhone 4, 2012
    Bf at the time had a spare iPhone 4 as he had just bought an iPhone 4S
  12. iPhone 4S, 2013
    Upgraded to 4S when then-bf upgraded to 5. Battery performance was worse than the 4. Replaced the battery which marginally extended the battery time. Bought a spare battery case. Charged phone to full twice a day
  13. iPhone 5S, May 2014
    Bought new iPhone 5S due to poor battery life and need to take better photos while traveling. Bought Morphie battery case
  14. iPhone 6S, Nov 2015
    Overnight charge lasts all day. Twice the battery life of iPhone 5S and more space for photos
