This phone was one of the phone, the phone that when we pull this thing out people would glance and go "whaaa? How do you even?". By today standard, this phone would made it among the hipsters . Because of its uniqueness and hard to useness. Useness is a word now. This phone was launch around 2003 and that was it.

LG BL40 New Chocolate
Long weirdly shape, yerp that's what she said. Even though nowadays square phone is a thing but, LG BL40 is just weird. Screen was snall and stretcged out. Its almost as a cringey in phone's world. I'm feeling the cringe because I myself used to like this phone.
Small and round keypad. More alike wii controller got married to an ipod and got a Samsung Serene. Its came in jewelry box shaped all nice and can pretend typing with just moving finger around the round shaped pad. What else can a person want?
Look! Is it an mp3 player? Is it a keychain? No! Its a phone. Not with just one round pad, this thing has 2 round pad and a little round screen. This phone mmmm yeah.
Blackberry was and is always the better qwerty pad phone. With undoubtedly great security build around its os. Nevertheless even though os was great but blackberry is lacking on designs. Not everyone would appreciate the bulky square with a hardware keypad. Its a great phone. But its square. Good feeling keyboard tho.
