    What is wrong with the idiots who design cellphones

    Yet again while on my flip phone I accidentally hit the button that muted the speaker phone. It only took me a second to realize I couldn't hear my sister anymore.
    It really irritates me that there are buttons on the outside where you hold the thing.
    They could have and should have put the 4 buttons on the inside instead of where you hold the darn things.
    Every cell phone I have ever had is the same way.

    Wait......you actually used a phone to make a phone call?! Novel idea.......not sure that's ever been attempted before, most only use them as a gps to guide them into light poles or off the edge of cliffs.

    The Samsung smartphone I have is annoying because the buttons are right where you grab it and I constantly take screenshots for no reason just holding it.
    They all suck!!

    With a smartphone you can mute yourself while having the phone up against your ear. Stupid touchscreens. Then again, if your flip phone had the buttons on the inside, the same might happen.

    Darnit! They all have issues

    I use speakerphone almost exclusively, I don't like having a phone against my head and like my hands free.

    I think the cell-phone designers are computer people, not phone people if you know what I mean. And they made windows, so there's that. Here's what I want, fully automatic secret service model:

    I have an iPhone, but it's provided by my employer. It's very, very useful, but it's Apple. All those folks who say "they're so intuitive, so easy to use" have very different brains from mine. The learning curve was long. I find Android much easier. I wouldn't want to go back to a non-smartphone, you just give up too much great functionality. If I were buying on my own I'd get a Samsung. Their phones seem really nice.

    I have a couple of buddies that have old fashioned flip phones. They’re happy with them, as they only want to make and receive calls. No texting or anything else.
    ​All you need for happiness is a good gun, a good horse, and a good wife.

    Texas friendly, spoken here.

    My wife has played with my android phone, doesn't care for it. She has a flip phone. AND, SHE has a PhD in computer science. She's retired now and doesn't like learning new operating systems and platforms. Can't say that I blame her. She's been into computing since the punch card days.

    Now, since I have a hard time remembering ANYthing anymore, I kinda like to be able to google. I think of it as a cyborg extension of my memory. I can google ANYwhere, not just on the laptop. Voice googling is marvelous.
