I have had a couple of LG flips -0- issues, in the link below they say they are getting popular again.  I had my eye on an Iphone I mentioned it to my eye doctor, he reached in his pocket and pulled out a flip.  He went on to say stay away from the brick types, his very well found opinion was they do two things!  Harm both peripheral vision and depth perception, IE they over time screw up your vision!

 

So I will always stick with a flip!!

Thanks Phil...

 

I'm looking into those phones now, and I'm glad the flips are coming back. Smaller is better, for me anyway.

 

Thanks again,

John

I've had zero issues with Kyocera flip phones.

Over a month ago, but for future reference:  The good one's all seem to be Japanese. I like docomo's like the docomo Sharp SH-07F, and Freetel MUSASHI FTJ161A but prohibitively expensive and the latter has buttons and manual in Japanese. If you can even import them here. The Lenovo MTK6582M aka A588t is outdated, but if I could get a phone like that or the Freetel I'd jump. Just want a bit thinner & better specs.

 

I'd like a flip to protect one screen. Don't need two screens, and not too big. But market forces seem to point towards us carrying around Nooks and Kindles for some idiotic reason.

 

If that helps.

One of the best flip phones that I have ever owned is the Samsung Convoy 3. It's rugged and can handle just about anything. While it isn't 100 percent waterproof or guaranteed to be indestructible like more expensive models, it can handle a whole lot of dropping, throwing, dripping, etc. It will have no problems.

FWIW, I'm still using the original Samsung Convoy flip phone for quite a few years now and have not had any problems with it, even though it's been dropped a few times.  All I need is just a simple, mobile phone...don't have any use for all the bells and whistles that come with smartphones, Android, etc.

 

Cheers! :)

The only downside is my old flip phones are CDMA and 3g will eventually die out. Verizon is killing their 3G network in 2020. LTE is the future.
