The strangest cell phone designs in history are revisited by the museum

The Mobile Phone Museum has divided its online collection into subcategories such as best selling, fashion and the totally niche James Bond category, but our personal favourite is the ‘ugliest’ phone category – and boy are they ugly. We have chosen a few of our favourites (see above), but we just can’t quite imagine today’s phone companies today creating models as bizarre as these. We have to admit though, we love how much colour is used on these older phone models, perhaps in the future it would be cool to see a gradient iPhone.

Since the first mobile phone was produced, technology has advanced significantly. However, before today’s cellphones, there were a few designs floating around that were, to put it mildly, odd. Over 2100 distinct mobile phones from history have been collected at the Mobile Phone Museum, and we can’t get enough of some of these unusual designs. The phones we know today, from the iPhone to the Google Pixel, have a clean and futuristic appearance, but the Mobile Phone Museum’s collection shows that this wasn’t always the case. Mobile phones used to come in various shapes, sizes, and colours, it seems. Do you yearn for the days of your youth? Make sure to have a look at our list of the best flip phones.

There are also a number of designs in the collection that were absolutely iconic, from the Nokia 3310 to the Motorola Razr flip phone. Looking back on all these old models is making us feel seriously nostalgic, and we actually love how varied and different each of these phones are. Whilst we love a good iPhone, there is a fond novelty about each of these wacky models.

We have come a hell of a long way since the first mobile phone, and it’s exciting to see where we will be heading next.
