What's the worst phone you've ever had?

It seems people here have tried all sorts of phones over the years. I'm wondering... What's the worst phone you've ever had?

LG Cookie, that genuinely had the worst touchscreen I've ever used. It was laggy as hell at the best of times, if you tried to play music and type, the keyboard lagged even more horrifically.

It also had a pretty fatal flaw with its texting app. If you were writing a message to someone and you got another text whilst you were typing, once you'd read the text you'd received the text you were typing would then send to whoever just text you, not whoever you'd originally set it to send to. You had to be pretty careful with who you were texting :p.

The 2nd Motorola L6 I bought. The first one worked well, 2nd one was a pos.

That's certainly an entertaining flaw.

I bought a Motorola Krzr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorola_Krzr) when it first came out. Completely hideous operating system and dire screen. I haven't and won't buy another Motorola ever again due to this pants model. Mind you, it was quite good at removing ice from my car window.

I HATE my blackberry curve.
I have to use it for work and the keyboard just doesn't do it for me. The o/s reminds me of OS/2 (remember that IBM thing?) and it seems 20 years out of date. It has got a great music player and the battery last an age but I despise everything else about it. Maybe its a pavlovian thing as it's my work phone but.... I can't wait to get rid of it. If I could just convince my boss to get an iPhone instead then maybe i'd hate iPhones as much too

Yes but remember that Motorola also made some of the best phones on the market for it's time.

Motorola RIZR (yes, RIZR) Z8.

Samsung Galaxy S (i9000)

I waited ages for T-Mobile to get it, avoiding going for the HTC Desire in favor of the promise of a better processor and Graphics, plus a SAMOLED display.

Only it was ruined by the use of RFS as the file system resulting in ridiculous amounts of lag.
Thankfully Voodoo came out making the phone usable but until then I was envious of every Desire owner out there who could always flash a nice clean ROM based on the releases for the Nexus One.

Although saying that, I still use it to this day as a MP3 player thanks to Voodoo Sound and the Wolfson DAC inside.

I picked the Desire over the galaxy s. My wife picked the s
Oh how I laughed......

AhmadCentral  Feb. 1, 2013 at 17:45

i picked the Nokia 5800, oh how i cried :(

Although tbh it was a great little phone,

In almost twenty years of owning and using mobile phones, the worst for me has to have been myNokia 7610. Form over function meant an awful keyboard to type anything on and the Symbian OS was just terrible. Might as well have carried a brick in my pocket!

IndianaBlues  Feb. 1, 2013 at 18:16

I'll see your 7610 and raise you a 3650...what was I thinking??

I remember having to make the same decision back in 2010, I wasn't a fool and picked the Desire :p.

I fold! You'd have hoped that, in the 12 months between the two handset releases, Nokia would have learned a thing or two about ergonomics. That 3650 looks like a badly-designed tv remote.

In a way the worst I ever owned was the N91. There's this almost steampunkishly cool metal thing with a sound that is, to this day unrivalled, and the screen comes on and you wanna cry because it's so crap. And the music library spends 5 minutes on adding 2 songs...

matt101101 / MOD  Feb. 1, 2013 at 19:48

I never owned one, but I'd like to throw the Nokia N-Gage into the mix :p.
