A Journey Through Mobile Generations! You Are Lucky If You Were Born in 1980s!

Mobile phones have undergone transformation with each passing year. Listed below are 10 of the amazing phones of last decade which you may have used, provided you were born in 1980s or before.

In the late 1990s they drove everyone crazy with their antennas and brick-like look! Wondering what we’re talking about?

Well, we aren’t speaking about an alien; we are talking about cell phones! Remember those times when we loved to play Snake games on our phones?

Sliders and flap enabled phones totally enticed us! Mobiles were a rarity then, and they didn’t possess any of the current features of a smartphone.

Most of them had a grey background or a monochromatic display and performed the basic functions of calling and texting. Nevertheless, we do miss those simpler times, don’t we?  Well, if you’re those fortunate ones who were born in the 1980s or before that, you would have definitely used some of these queer yet cool devices! So let’s walk down memory lane and relive that cell phone nostalgia.
