Some of the old Nokia phones were kind of Moulinex phones. The Moulinex knife, like many white appliances, are made to do one thing only, and to do that one thing well. The old Nokia’s made calls and you could text and little more, but they did it well and they didn’t break. If you wanted to use your phone just as a phone, like the knife as a knife, you wouldn’t do bad with one of the old phones. My parents are a case example of that. We use our modern phones 24/7, for just about everything (at least I do!) and considering mine is pretty mid range, it does it pretty well. For me, the modern smart phone, still is a dream come true!
Very good comment from vboelema in response to this article.
