It was the first one I ever saw and it was amazing to me. I gave them credit for a killer device but still kept my flip phone until years later.

It was the first mass marketed smartphone, so that's fair.

Here's a hint. Don't use glass on the back of a phone. Imagine the countless hours we wouldn't need repairing them.

Disgusting industry, really. It just oozes waste and mass consumerism like no other. Valuable fab time, rare metals etc... in nearly disposable phones. Even this repair service... we devise machines to repair something that should never have to be repaired in the first place, only so we can then toss it out a year later regardless...

You can still buy phones that are repairable and aren't gimmick-machines. Admitedly, the selection is getting poorer though. Blame consumers for that, really.
