15 years of mobile phones
  1. Bosch 509, 2000
    F162a456 770b 4876 81bd cfba8de166e7
    The company that made ovens made a phone. It was orange and best feature was ring tones for text messages
  2. Phillips Savvy, 2001
    0bb001f5 7093 4d61 90a8 c34951a22838
    One of the first phones you could send emoticon like images (only to people who had the same phone)
  3. Panasonic GD67, 2002
    1ea0941e 0f21 4fba 881b 6ad5090f2145
    Had a clear backing which you could put an picture inside. First colour screen
  4. Nokia 2280, 2003
    666588a0 d010 4523 ba9a f74449bfec78
    CDMA network. Free phone with 2 year student contract. Made a great torch. Back to no colour.
  5. Sanyo 7400, 2004
    0391f1b5 09b4 41a7 a0f0 4ab99c0b9bf6
    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
    90fd7884 0e59 4bf7 ac98 704e1ab5d621
    Terrible phone. Menu system that didn't make any sense. Downgrade from Sanyo. Flip phone phase continues.
  7. Nokia N95, 2007
    733f7f22 cb5d 42e2 9c5d cb0e949f26f4
    The best phone ever. 5MP camera, GPS with Nokia Maps and a web browser.
  8. Sony Ericsson W580i, 2010
    Bd0d2e5a a06b 449f 8fa6 d0f12ceb7343
    Walkman phone from work. Not as good as my N95.
  9. HTC Magic, 2011
    C51e5914 710b 418a bddc 04082883b2b8
    First android (Jellytip?) blurry camera. Not great.
  10. HTC 7 Trophy 2011
    Cf7059bb 9218 4cc4 89b3 47e748363269
    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
    B23b4d17 7897 401d a2e9 c95d1de960ff
    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
    3dbe6931 759c 4d76 9503 546b4f2e3a9b
    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
    7a17adcf 438e 439e ad94 78afe808a776
    Overnight charge lasts all day. Twice the battery life of iPhone 5S and more space for photos
