Return Of The Brick?

By  |  0 Comments

 


Life is a full circle. And we think that happens with gadgets as well. Remember the Nokia 1611 and Ericsson SH888, one of the first few ‘brick phones’ that were less useful for contacting friends and came more in handy as an object to throw at trolls. We have grown from ‘big’ phones to convenient smaller sized phones, and now we are witnessing a trend of larger than life phones again. But this time around they are more advanced, packed with a zillion useful apps and do cost a bomb as well. We pick these phones and tag them after grilling them from our end.
