There was a time when people had phones in their pockets that were only able to make phone calls and SMS. If someone was lucky, they had nice polyphonic ringtones in there device, which s/he could listen to before going to bed at night. Some were lucky to have FM radio and snake game as well which brought a lot of excitement. These phone didn't have any camera, video recording, apps, HD games, OTG, GPS, Bluetooth, compass, net browsing, Facebooking possibility etc. But believe it or not kids, these phones were quite pricey and most of us were very proud to hold these kind of phones in hand and walk around 10-12 years ago.
Although, this is the age of smartphones, many people still prefer to use these kind of old day feature, bar or classic mobile phones. There are various reasons behind it.
A lot of people still need a phone just to make calls and perhaps send some SMS. They don't need all those cool features in their mobile devices. Then there is another kind of customer group who like to have two different kind of phones for two different purposes; one smartphone and one feature phone. This can be because of security reason. Where there is a possibility of theft, one can carry cheap feature phone and in safe places smartphone. Another thing is that, good build quality feature phones provide long battery backup e.g. most of the Nokia feature phones. So, one can talk much longer without thinking about charging it in every few hours. Other than Nokia, Symphony feature phones are also very popular in Bangladesh as the price is usually quite low and there are many different kind of style and features available in these phones. Another reason to use feature phone is, to disconnect oneself from all the networking, time wasting apps and trends addiction. Thus, leading true freedom and a more natural "offline life", observing nature, thinking about God and the world, helping the needy and be more attentive towards the family.
There is no doubt that the most popular feature phone of all time in Bangladesh is the famous Nokia 1100. Some may still remember the old ringtone and snake game from this phone with highly impressive build quality, long battery life, stylish design and comfortable in the hand.
