Why are push-button cellphones better than smartphones?
Modern telephone communication is represented not only by stationary desktop devices, but also by a huge number of mobile models. As they say, for every taste and every wallet. Wired exchanges are no longer being produced, and existing ones are on the verge of closure due to the outflow of subscribers. A landline phone almost everywhere lost its niche to a mobile one.
You can enjoy the progress, but something is not observed much joy among the owners of sophisticated touch devices. What is the matter? Sensors revealed three major problems. The first of them is the difficulty of refusing any subscriptions. For example, you go to some website offering the product you need or the right service.
While the site is loading, an offer to subscribe to a daily paid notification with the news of the resource automatically pops up on the smartphone’s monitor. You absolutely do not need this service. Of course, you touch “Refuse” with your finger. But the trick is that the site has not fully loaded yet and in the next two seconds, instead of “Opt out”, “Subscribe” will be under your finger!
The proposal itself is already hiding, and you have no idea that you signed up. The truth will be revealed to you only after you don’t know where and for what money will be debited from your balance sheet. You need to work with the touch screen leisurely, waiting for the page to fully load. Photo: pixabay.com The second problem is the fast “weight loss” of traffic. The Internet eats it very well with a bunch of features that need it. In principle, unnecessary functions can be disabled. But then the smartphone elementarily turns into a regular push-button mobile phone.
And was it worth it to spend money on an expensive purchase? The third problem is a very expensive repair in case of any malfunctions that quite often happen with smartphones. No one will look for a failed part in the workshop. It was during the times of the USSR that a burned resistor or transistor was looked for in a television or radio, and repairs after that cost a penny or a few rubles.
In a modern workshop, the failed part of the smartphone is simply taken out and replaced with a new one. It will cost you a few thousand rubles. Sometimes the question even appears: “Isn’t it cheaper to buy a new smartphone?” After such a long, but absolutely necessary introduction, I turn to the news that in 2017 the demand for small-sized push-button mobile phones has sharply increased in Russia. That is, from the category of mini.
Why? Users remembered that push-button telephones rarely broke and the wizard took very little money to repair them. Small push-button phones are gaining popularity again
But the point is not only that. Relatively large, heavy and expensive smartphone, put in your pocket, it became uncomfortable to carry. Especially in the case when, of all his bells and whistles, only the functions of talking or sending / receiving SMS are used. Why the hell then, this handheld computer, actively eating up your finances? But the most important thing that users remembered: on a push-button telephone, it is very difficult for lovers of free money to quietly “stick” a subscription.
After all, there is no Internet on such a simple phone. If it is connected, then in order to agree with the offer, you need to send the code to the short number by typing it with the buttons. Who in their right mind would do this, realizing that he needed the proposed subscription, like a cow in a cavalry saddle? In any case, everyone chooses a gadget according to their needs.

Almost the entire volume in such a mobile phone is occupied by a battery with an increased resource. It is clear that this moment is also taken into account by users who are tired of daily charging their smartphone. As an option – a portable charging-storage for two or three charges, which also costs money. And for what, actually? Like it or not, but such progress is costing a little expensive.
Mobile phones with a minimum of functions, but with a powerful battery, are again in the ranking of the most sold. I think this is the right decision for users in the era of the global global financial crisis.
