I am using Nokia E72 white edition,purchased on Feb 2011 for 18,600 rupees
I bought this phone as
-I wanted a keypad phone(though qwerty was not my motive) as i dont prefer touchscreen like majority
-I like white colour & a long time user of nokia.
-I wanted a phone with good cam/quality hence rushed & bought it once i realized the whole world was going touchscreen/android.
-Has a decent 600mhz processor & use the phone for making calls(not much texting) & taking pics/videos,using the maps/navigation only once till date.
-Has a good battery life usully lasts me 5/6 days despite 2 odd hours of calls a day. Other phones currently with me- Nokia 5310
gifted to me in 2007 i think,nothing great about the phone except it was sleek & i would think i had lost it when it was still in my pocket.Phone would hang once a week atleast.Screen stopped working in early 2011 after i threw it with a fit of rage(repair pending). The Legendary "Nokia 6600" bought on 3rd June 2005 for 12097 rupees
(max retail was 16100),still have the box,theft insurance & bill etc.It was originally grey/black but body was changed to full black under Nokia on May 2006 as it was damaged when i threw it in a fit of rage.Battery changed on Nov 2009 after old battery swelled,this phone gets alot of admirers when i use it(very rarely) & a friend even offered to buy it for 6500 which i declined as i keep hearing many wanted to buy it then but never did.
Had some other phones from Panasonic,Samsung & Motorola from 1998 above(had a craze for cell phones when in school) which were unfortunately given away & other phones were eventually lost once given to friends & family as we have never sold or exchanged one of our cell phones till date.
I understand some phone users buy expensive phones such as Iphone for the sake of status(some think they are greater than you if you have a lesser model
) or just to have the latest top gizmo in there hand (with hardly any use of its features)but i am the type who enjoys keeping a phone in pristine condition in the long run & i tend to develop sentimental value towards them.
