As someone who was born in the 70s, I have witnessed the groundbreaking invention of the Apple computers and the birth of mobile phones in the late 1980s and 1990s. I think I belonged to a lucky bunch, at least I still can learn to use and adopt to these new technologies, my parents who were born in the 1940s, can only deal with simple and minimal smartphone operations. Smartphone is a necessity nowadays, you will have those people try to glam it up with crystals and gold trims to feel the superiority or uniqueness. My all-time favorite before the rising of the smartphones is the 8810 by Nokia. It was the first phone (pre-touch screen time) with a metallic casing, the finishing, the shape and the grip of the phone was so unique which makes it iconic for us. I can still remember it was selling at 1.5x of how much you will pay for a new iPhone now, not to mention 20+ years of inflation that should be added on. It will always be considered a revolutionary phone design.
