    what cell-phone do you have?

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S5.

    I recently started to look for a NOS Nokia 3310.

    I don't need all those functions on the latest smartphones. The 3310 can last one week on one battery charge. The functions on that one are enough for me. And...it's soooo vintage, tough my Motorola flair (that i still have) looks way more vintage, but it's also too big and too heavy...

    I think its great cant fault it at all and the battery lasts at least 2 days which is amazing I had the S2 and S4 before it so I was apprehensive moving from Samsung but I dont regret it at all

    i5

    Usually get the new model each year but have no interest in a bigger phone so this one had better last.

    I had one of those nokia's when they were new and it wouldn't last more than a couple days back then so can't imagine how it would last a week now. Best phones I've ever had were some old school, and very expensive at the time, samsungs. Still have them actually. More than 15 years packed up in a storage box when I came across them last year and both still had some charge when I powered them on. Couldn't believe it.

    When i served as a commando in (former) Yugoslavia in the early '90's i bought my first cell to phone home. At that time in Europe there was no roaming, so it was way cheaper than calling with a sattelite-phone. I still have that phone (the Motorola Flair) and it is still functioning, but it requires the big simcard (same size as a creditcard)

    I love how you say that almost casually, " when I was a commando in Yugoslavia..."

    Back that far we didn't have GSM phones here, it was all CDMA/TDMA. My first one was a Motorla brick. I'm not not have I ever been a commando, but that thing was built like a tank! They actually crashed tested those phones from something like 8 stories high if I recall correctly. Nowadays my iPhone wouldn't stand a chance from my pocket to the floor. Actually that reminds me that is exactly how that 3310 met its fate. I had set it on the roof of my car and drove away. Realized it was missing about a km away and turned around to find it in 1,000 pieces on the concrete. Couldn't believe how badly it imploded. Was a very nice phone for its time though.

    We did not take our phones to the field you know. Imagine mum or nana calling when you are out there. The snipers would have loved that...
