Why are there no new flagship phones with keyboards?
Almost every time I see someone with a smartphone they are texting. So wouldn't those phones be popular? Isn't there a demand for them?
I should have specified it but I am not talking about these kind of keyboards. I find them personally too small to type on comfortably and I too prefer touchscreen keyboards to them. Also I don't like how they limit the screen size. I am talking about keyboards like these.
Absolutely, but as far using that model in this day and age it's not even remotely worth it to put up with the bullshit of gen 1 android hardware (and ROMS).
Made emulators preddy gud as well as the odd occasion i SSH'd into somewhere, significantly less akward with a keyboard.
And look like this when taking selfies? No thanks.
Get in the feel bus, so we can feel together!
Ayy I want to be a girl not some cockloving incestious faggot
>Why are there no new flagship phones with keyboards?
My guess is that they were mostly impractical; keyboards on smartphones have always stopped working after a couple months of use. That is unless you never used it.
>Almost every time I see someone with a smartphone they are texting.
Visit the play store and search for "keyboard"; you're not going to get swype features with a physical keyboard, OP. When all you're using are your thumbs and sometimes your index fingers, you ought to remove as much effort needed in order to actually type; otherwise it's just needlessly complicated.
>Isn't there a demand for them?
Yes, but ever since the launch of the iphone phones with physical keyboards have been becoming more and more of a niche thing.
>no advancement of the QWERTY keyboard phone
>no advancement of the flip phone
>no modern combination of both
>people fork out hundreds of dollars for a cell phone designed by the manufacturer to break if you drop it or run out of battery if you take it anywhere
