5 Top Great Smartphones from last 10 Years

2007 was the year when smartphones were getting into reality with more GBs, bigger screen sizes, more pixels, and a lot more features. Nokia and Symbian were still leading the smartphone industry, as Apple's very first iPhone was just hitting the market, and Android was not yet ready for its commercial debut.

Smartphones are listed on alphabetically order not any kind of ranking. So lets start and see if any one makes you nostalgic or not.

  • iPhone
It was announced by Steve Jobs on January 9, 2007, the original iPhone didn't hit shelves until half a year later, on June 29. This was the first (and last) time when an iPhone did not become available shortly after its announcement.

The original iPhone was praised for its user-friendly 3.5-inch multi-touch display with 320 x 480 pixels, plus its interface and multimedia/internet capabilities, while being criticized for the lack of features that other high-end smartphones already had (like 3G connectivity and built-in GPS).

  • Blackberry 8300
In 2007, BlackBerry continued its consumer-friendly approach started in 2006 (with the BlackBerry Pearl series) by launching the BlackBerry Curve family, starting with the Curve 8300. Compared to BlackBerry's previous full QWERTY smartphones, the Curve 8300 had a nicer design and various multimedia features, including a 2 MP rear camera, music player, and stereo Bluetooth.

HTC TyTN II was one of the best Windows Mobile handsets of its time. This was a pretty complete smartphone - besides the software features of Windows Mobile 6, it had stuff like 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, and two cameras (rear and front). Plus, of course, the TyTN II offered a full QWERTY keyboard, and a tilting 2.8-inch touchscreen display with 240 x 320 pixels.

  • Nokia N95
Nokia N95 was announced in September 2006, but it only hit the market starting March 2007. Seen by many as one of the best smartphones ever (regardless of OS), the N95 was the most advanced Symbian device of its era. Nokia N95 included a 5 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens and 480p video at 30fps, stereo speakers, all the connectivity options available in 2007, and 4 GB / 8 GB of expandable storage space.

  • Sony Ericsson W960
W960 was a high-end Symbian handset aimed at multimedia buffs. The smartphone had a 2.6-inch, 240 x 320 pixels resistive touchscreen display (with stylus), touch-sensitive music keys, and a regular alphanumeric keypad. Also it included 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, a 3.2 MP rear camera with dual LED flash, and 8 GB of storage space
