James Bond's phone is nothing special

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

Product placement is a lucrative business, so much so that the latest (next) James Bond movie is apparently going to have certain scenes re-shot, because Nokia, amongst others, isn't happy that their product as originally used/seen in the movie is now out of date.

Funny you should mention that. Only this morning, after hearing a radio ad for the latest Samsung (?) phone that said something like "buy the wonderful new Samsung Whiz Bang Mk 5" I said to the Mrs. Just like cars, how does anyone tell the difference when they all look the bloody same? She replied with a brilliant French Shrug. They all look the same to me, boss.

I bought a new, actually refurbished, iphone yesterday, which looks absolutely brand new, not a single mark on it, and was an absolute bargain. I don’t often move from something I’m happy using, but had finally decided that I would try one of these new-fangled phones.

It might not be the best or the newest phone, or suitable for a James Bond film, but I enjoy recycling and love my new phone.

For the best environmentally friendly phone, see https://www.fairphone.com/en/

Added bonus - you can wave goodbye to Google with a few tweaks.
