      Same. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I'm very happy with it.

      I already don't use iPhones. Too simple.

      And probably the Pixel or Samsung Galaxy.

      Being really pedantic... the first iPhone is seen as the 'template' for the smartphone industry. In terms of what set it off in that direction... before then you had Palm and Blackberry, using physical QWERTY keyboards, etc. - nothing was really the same as what Apple offered with the first iPhone... so it is likely that the entire smartphone industry would be radically different if the iPhone never existed!

      This isn't to say that every phone manufacturer copied Apple's original vision. Of course, they didn't. However, Apple did pave the way towards the modern smartphone (in terms of design, form factor, software/OS, etc.), allowing others to follow in their footsteps and develop their own things.

      Impossible to say as so much has been changed by smartphones, and none of the phones being made now (and also their manufacturers) would exist in their current form were it not for the iPhone. Who knows what Nokia or Sony Ericsson might be selling today had it not been for Apple?

      I actually woke up this morning and ordered a brand new MOTOROLA V3! Okay it's not brand new but I'm thinking, old phones can make a good fashion statement right? I mean the V3 and a suit, perfect combination. I'm forwarding all my calls to it when it arrives.

      I'm glad you made this thread, let me ask a sub question. Do you think it'd be cool to use an old phone? What would you do if you saw someone using a V3 in 2017?
