Probably my grandparents. The interface is too confusing, it crashes all the time when you want to do the basic function of phoning, and even then it's confusing... Yeah, flip phones are better for elderly people, and that's why it still sells.

Hehe. Probably @DJ Omnimaga too, he really liked his old Android phone with a physical keyboard and actual buttons and got all jealous when he saw @Patrick Davidson's one with a keyboard on it when we met him.

There is ways to use your phone from your computer, yeah. If you use an iPhone and a Mac, well it's integrated, for Android it's probably somewhat more shady.

Nah I mean like actually connect your sim to your PC via USB or something and have software on the PC do the calling.

Edit: also I really wish touch screen phones had left/right/up/down arrows on the keyboard it's so hard to get the curser in the right position X.X

Eh, sometimes I do feel my fingers are really too big for the screen. And the swipe action is sometimes shady. And I have small fingers. And a low-end phone.

You could build your own touch screen phone with an arduino :P

PatrickD's phone wasn't a modified Ti 85? :trollface:

But on topic, I like them, but the typing inter face is pretty terrible.

I'd better do that with a Raspberry Pi.

I always use Hacker's Keyboard, I have the whole PC keyboard, except the keys are ridiculously small. Or you can always get a Bluetooth keyboard, it always work.

Making you look old might be hard considering how old certain forum members are :P

I don't like touchscreen keyboards, but I like touchscreen controls for browsing, as long as finger detection isn't off like on older iOS devices. For keyboards I miss the small keypad that my old Samsung i5510 had. Sadly, that phone was so slow and outdated and nowadays they barely do any Android-based phones with such keypad anymore. For browsing and clicking stuff I am fine, though, even to the point where I got used so much to touchscreen controls that on my TI-Nspire CX or TI-84 Plus CE I sometimes try to click stuff on the screen with my fingers, only to realize that those calcs don't have touch screens. <_<
