Nokia 3310, Motorola StarTAC, Ericsson T29

Lekki! This name means nothing to you? Nokia 3310, Nokia 8210, Motorola Startac, it certainly speaks to you more. Lekki is the company that has decided to revive our old cell phones of the 90s, riding the wave of the vintage. A phenomenon that is becoming increasingly important at a time when smartphone manufacturers continue to race performance.
In this ultra-connected world, the old (but not only) return to their first love, tired of this ubiquitous technology. Followers of saying "a phone call is made to" those users store their smartphones in a drawer and resume old habits.

But what motivates them to work this backwards? Why this phenomenon, which is beginning to affect the mid peoples, it is becoming increasingly important? Fad or real will to mark a pause in this world where technology is developing so fast that it eventually exceeds us back on this phenomenon and what drives users to trade their smartphones against an old Motorola StarTAC 130.

Too technology kills Technology

The first motivation of users to abandon their smartphone is the overflow technology. By trying to convince consumers that they need all these devices, manufacturers eventually cause an overdose. Smartphones, tablets and now connected objects, this is too much .

Some say "stop" and as an affront to the big firms in the world, they make a 180 degree turn. These larger screens, more beautiful, more powerful of these products, more efficient, faster, all they have had enough. A phone that is done primarily to make calls.

This "back to basics" occurs because manufacturers ended up giving nausea to many users. They wanted to force-feed consumers as geese, without listening to their needs but their creating. And after smartphones are connected objects they want to impose . Today some refuse to be dictated their consumption patterns.

Back to basics

This race performance more tired these users, since improvements in smartphones ignore their needs. Some fundamentals are completely forgotten.

First strength. Fashion ever end smartphones illustrates this forgotten builders. By trying to force chasing the finesse we forget that a smartphone should be solid. The Bendgate demonstrates the weakness of our smartphones.

Mobile phones 90s are rock solid. You can drop your 3310 fourth floor, it will shock (yes that's a slight exaggeration). The sad thing is that the technologies exist to make our smartphones durable products .

Another desirable feature: autonomy. Certainly, smartphones are real pocket computers, we can not expect a week of autonomy as our old phones 90s But it is above all the manufacturers approach that is described here.
Every year, new devices are marketed but none stands out for autonomy. At the most one takes a day and a half on average. While technological developments agree, but users would like them to go in the direction of their needs.

The issue of personal data

It is no secret that using our smartphones requires significant data flow. Including, of course, our personal data. It's simple, everything related directly or indirectly to our privacy through our smartphone address, identity, bank information, social networks etc.

And the latest information about the safety of these data is not reassuring. Several studies show that our data is more accessible . Builders and developers of OS do not work enough to strengthen their security. And even if the user also has its share of responsibility, it is not supposed to be a digital security expert to use their smartphone.

Feeble autonomy, robustness to review, lack of security? It was enough for those who are already tired of all this technology. A phone 90s, it's tough, it recharges only once a week, and no chance to see their personal information hacked.

Lekki: reference telephone vintage

The Lekki company saw this coming tired of some users and has surfed the wave of "low-tech". Whether by conformism or out of the standardization of smartphones (they all look alike, whereas before they were easily recognizable, work on design was necessary to stand out) users clearly show their nostalgia.

And to regain their former sensations, they are willing to pay the price. Because even if the first models are relatively accessible (80 $ for a Nokia 8210) for other prices soar. A simple Ericsson T29 is sold 180$. Motorola StarTAC 130 legendary sold 499 $! It's almost the price of a high-end smartphone like the Moto X in 2014 for example

In any case, the phenomenon seduced and even the stars are getting into. Whether the editor of US Vogue, Anna Wintour view with a flip phone, Rihanna, Iggy Pop or the New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, all have stood their old drawer phones. And you, a return to the 90s, anyone?
