It may seem ironic and surprise you, but, flip phones are actually more popular in Japan than “smart phones”. I guess it is a matter of what your needs are. Durability is a more important factor for me, so, I guess I kind of have a hybrid between a “dumb phone” and a “smart phone”. It is the Dura XTP by Kyocera and although it is a flip phone, it also has internet capability and a camera. I am not stumping for them, its just the right fit for me.
