When Phones Were Fun – Nokia N95
After all, 2020 has been one of the most interesting years in mobile tech history: Motorola finally achieved a proper reboot of its iconic RAZR; Samsung built the best foldable ever with its Galaxy Z Fold 2; and even LG got in on the fun with a radical rehash of its VX9400, the LG Wing.
As I said in my review of the latter: “phones are indeed fun again!”
But something tells me that, whatever social feeds might exist thirteen years from now, not many of those phones will inspire the kind of love-fest that 2007’s Nokia N95 does.
With a bevy of firsts encapsulated within an iconic dual-slider design, the Nokia N95 wasn’t just the ultimate smartphone …
it was also, in many ways, the last of its kind.
