Line them smartphones up. With a swathe of these mobile devices in the market, we revisit six of the best eye candies that have made more than one of techgasm. Cue the catcalls.
No one can ever deny that Apple’s iPhones are a true work of art – which is why their design has only been tweaked ever so slightly across its releases since the first generation iPhone launched in 2007. Their chic, up-market design and unsurpassed build have made them the symbol of smartphone envies. We call it show stoppin’.
Samsung Galaxy Note
Styluses were one of the tools that used to differentiate a mobile meant for work from play. Some of us may even have found them to be one of the most annoying pieces to be paired with smartphones.
Flash-forward a few years, the stylus made a comeback; Samsung debuted its Galaxy Note with an S pen (just a fancy name for stylus) and we all fell in love.
BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930
Once the queen of the enterprise space, BlackBerry was unrivalled when it came to security and making the QWERTY typepad famous. But its users felt it lacked a key feature – a touchscreen. Then arrived the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 with the missing element. Retaining the classic BB look, it was also the thinnest BlackBerry to date.

LG Prada II
Prada is a luxury fashion style house and it’s no wonder why its mobile aka fashion accessory made it on this list. Teaming up with LG, the smartphone is a touchscreen that has attached a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Did we mention it came in a spiffy leather box?
It’s no wonder even the devil wears Prada.
Motorola Droid RAZR
Wipe that drool off your chin. RAZR-thin, lightweight, and striking, the Motorola Droid was easily one of 2011’s top Android smartphones. Despite its large footprint, the gizmo is also scratch-resistant and water-repellent.
If looks could kill, we’d have died and gone to tech heaven upon laying eyes on the X7. Designed for entertainment and gaming, the Nokia X7 featured a four-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. Not too shabby for something that was released three years ago (a decade in tech timelines).
We’re pretty sure a few gaming consoles and stations were abandoned with the release of this beauty.
