Listing the phones I have purchased over the years. I am surprised that I have had this many across the years now. Writing down my mobile history here

- As usual, the first phone had to be a Nokia then in 1998 or 1999 - Nokia 2100 - The famous tubelight phone. The white backlight on the screen was different from most of the other phones during that time.

- My college going cousin sissy wanted a mobile (and her mom wouldn't get her one) and I gave the 2100 to her. Went onsite for a while & came back and was without a phone & needed one. Samsung was still new then & I went for this one - Samsung C100 (2000??) - It had an color display with amazing resolution then

- Got bored of Samsung & wanted a new music phone with great camera of 2MP which was a luxury. It came with a 64K memory stick too - Sony Ericsson K750i (2002? 3? not sure)

- But got bored of carrying a brick of SE750 & wanted something slim. Which other phone than this Samsung slim phone - if anyone remembers its model - costed just 2k or so then? C117? not sure. Never come across any other phone as simple as this & doing what it should do best - make & receive calls - Samsung slim (best one) (2004-5)

- Qwerty bug bit me and after impressed by E71 which my friends had, I went for a Nokia E61 (next best) (2006/7?)

- Lost my E61 and went for a cheap phone shopping with Qwerty & Wifi & ended up with this crap - Micromax Q7 (2008)

- Touch was the mantra & iphone was hot. I wanted something different & reliable unlike Q7 but not an Apple. After checking many non-iphone models, and non korean/cheap plastic feel phones from LG/Samsung and even Nokia (had lost its charm then) and SE's pricey models, settled for this solid & rich feel HTC Desire around early 2010 - Stopped using it as my main phone mainly because of its battery life of 1+ day and required me to carry 2 phones due to 2 SIM's (work & personal)

- After the craze of Android dying down & self-realisation that phone is to make calls & should be handy when needed even if I forget to charge it over night, i started looking out for a new phone which has a good battery life (need not be a touch screen), qwerty keypad, 2 sims, and most importantly, exchange 2010 compatibility. Could not get anything meeting my requirements & then out of the blue I came across this Samsung Star II Duos on Letsbuy - current one (happy with this - 2 SIMs, 4-5 days battery, offers outlook sync) (2011) even though it does not have a dedicated qwerty keypad - If you are frustrated with the poor battery life of your phone, I recommend you to try this model.

When i did this rewind, I was really amazed to find how the technical advances in mobile technology has outpaced everyone
2003 - Samsung X100 - Brilliant Display, everyone was spellbound at that time
2006 - Motorazr V3i - I would buy one of these even today
2009 - Asus Windows mobile - Used it for a year. Spoiled my smartphone experience altogether
2010 - Now - LG Basic phone (costed 1200 bucks) - Still going strong, My best phone yet

Nice thread! My history


SE T230. My first - an absolutely crappy entry level SE phone. I was a student then so it was bought with my parents' hard earned money. Bought it for 6k and exchanged it for 1.5k


SE W810i, got it for about 15k. Absolutely fabulous phone for its time. Brick like build quality, small in size, great photos and music. Unfortunately it fell off my pocket when I was in an auto, else I am sure I would still be using it today


Nokia 1203. Back to basics. My new company insisted that I get a camera less phone and this was the best I could get. Cost only about 1.2k. Great battery life, call quality and highly 'chuck'able. Still have it

Nokia E72. Beautiful phone with a premium metal finish bought for 16k. Unfortunately the innards were dreadful, ran a glitchy Symbian OS. Gifted it to my dad

Samsung Galaxy R. One of the new Android super phones with dual core proc, 1 GB RAM. Paid about 21k for it, great VFM. Unfortunately Samsung has pulled the plug on this one so not sure about support

Entry level SE phone, don't remember the name. My dad used it for a couple of more years.

Another entry level Samsung phone that i got for free with an AT&T go phone connection.

Decided to buy a smart phone and the choice was between the 2nd gen iphone and HTC Kaiser (AT&T Tilt). Got taken in by Tilt fanboys on the net and bought it. Bad decision, it was a thoroughly underwhelming experience.

2010-Till date
My contract with AT&T was up and i was eligible for a new phone. The iphone was again an obvious choice but i really liked what Samsung had done with Galaxy S and bought it. It's a superb phone and has served me well. I think it's a testament to how good the phone is that it compares well to phones that are 2 years newer. My next phone will be another android, but probably something that's from the google stable.

2005-2007 -- Nokia 1108 -- Lost somewhere in my junk
2007-2008 -- MotoRazr -- The sexiest looking phone till date in my opinion. Lousy with everything else though. Still have it and sometimes love to flip it and behave like 'DON'.
2008-2010 -- MotoRoker E xx -- Super buggy. I presume only me and Abhishek Bacchhan ever owned this phone.
2010-2013 -- LG P 500 Optimus -- A very competent 3.5 inch phone. Bro-in-laws wife lost it Can't even shout at her.
2013-Till Date -- Nexus 4. Keep the android updates coming in. I ain't upgrading anytime soon
