Materials (body of a phone)Edit
It should be covered in the article. body of a phone is made of metal (aluminum, ...) or plastic or glass or ceramic. (a lot of phones use a metal band or a faux-metal finish over plastic trim - not the same if - actually made of metal) First phones that used each material, pros, cons...  Flagship phones in 2018 will all have glass backs From metal to glass 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:48, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
- World’s first true blockchain phone according to https://medium.com/swlh/blockchain-phone-secure-decentralized-98aa370f3ef2 is BOB (= Blok On Blok).
Users will be able to switch between Android and blockchain modes on their phones.
BOB's OS is Function X or f(x). When in blockchain mode every and all bits of data sent using the phone use blockchain technology that is why "true" is used, see 3rd point for "true"
- First blockchain phone call was made in 2018 according to https://medium.com/pundix/making-the-worlds-first-blockchain-phone-call-66784b5436ee
- there were prior to BOB " blockchain-based" phones but were just more blockchain-focused phones, first was HTC according to https://medium.com/@bitassetglobal/5-blockchain-phones-for-crypto-holders-899a56c1cd8c and https://www.technologyreview.com/2019/02/28/66000/what-the-hell-is-a-blockchain-phoneand-do-i-need-one/
Why will this improve this article - it's a new technology specific to the article .
why this isn't a general discussion? Well, it points out specific points relevant to the article and does not ask for discussion, help and whatnot.
Is it original research? Well I used my own words, but there were cases when that was interpreted as original research so I am not sure. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:11, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
- There were phones that were described as SMS devices, which premier purpose was messaging. Eamples are Motorola V100, V101, V200. Review at http://www.arcxsites.shh.net/MotorolaV101.htm of v101 that uses: "SMS device", "SMS phone" and gives desciption or definition "uses GSM... shaped like an alphanumeric pager...QWERTY keyboard" https://www.rcrwireless.com/20020124/carriers/motorola-launches-v101-communicator-with-rogers-at-t
- so it was alphanumeric pager which had phone call capability
Why will this improve this article - it's a new category specific to the article. Phablet is the same thing and has it's own page
why this isn't a general discussion? Well, it points out specific points relevant to the article and does not ask for discussion, help and whatnot. It only asks for consenus.
Is it original research? Obviously not. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:11, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Coffee is not longer a Group 2B carcinogenEdit
Kosher Phone section undue.Edit
I bumped the Kosher Phone section down from the "types of phone" to the "use" section; it's plainly undue for a type of phone - the rest of the section covers extremely broad technical classifications that phones fall into (each a major topic in its own right making up a massive swath of the market), whereas Kosher phones are a comparatively tiny ain't-it-strange subclass of feature phones comparable to branded phones used by individual companies. Even as a use section it seems a bit undue, though - each section there is heavily-referenced and capable of supporting its own article, whereas the Kosher Phone section only cites two sources, which (crucially) are referring to essentially different topics. And both sources emphasize that their phones are ain't-it-strange weird-news things. It seems more like the words "Kosher phone" have been applied to a variety of different phones aimed, in varying ways, at the Orthodox Jewish community, but that (despite one source noting some interest by non-Jews) none have particularly caught on even within that community - a quick search finds most sources describe the number of users as in the thousands, which is a rounding error in the cell phone market. If it's going to have its own section then we'll need to find better / broader sources demonstrating that this is an actually successful thing and not a one-off. --Aquillion (talk) 03:54, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
