Top 5 Worst Phones Ever!

My choices for the worst phones ever! What’s your pick?

Since smartphones really started taking off there have been many excellent innovations and awesome phones and there have been an equal amount of massive failures that tried too hard, didn’t try hard enough or gambled on a new way of doing things that didn’t quite work out so here are my top 5 worst phones ever!

COMMENTS

Samsung Galaxy S and S4 both sucked… The S4 had potential, but failed due to too much power on an OS that didn’t need it all, constricting it to lag and drain battery quickly. Hopefully the S5 fixes these problems, but either way, I’ll stick with my iPhone. I have always used iOS, and I like the feel of it, though it is fragile and I use an LG Optimus L9 instead for mobility as it is cheaper and more durable than my iPhone 5s.
