>there are people on /v/ RIGHT NOW that actually own smartphones
Why do you support mobile gaming?
>tfw bought smart phone
>tfw entire amount of money spent on phone, data, and monthy plan goes directly to Clash of Clans because that's how smart phones work
I'm sorry, /v/, I didn't know ;-;
I have the M7 and I'm still jelly of you anon.

That's what happens when you abandon physical keypads.
But you CAN contractually agree to not say things people don't want you to say, despite the First Amendment. A perfect example would be NDAs.
Punch whoever told you that in their smug face.
My oldman gave me his Iphone 4 last year, it's the worst piece of shit I have ever own, these damn things don't even let me pick a fucking ringtone.
How the fuck does Apple have so many drones?
>posts on /v/
>worried about being tracked down
what, you worried the government will be able to tell when you're taking a bathroom break from whining on 4chan in your basement all day?
I don't support mobile gaming, I don't spend a penny on those piece of shit games. But how could I deny a waterproof smartphone that can play every emulator there is? I can literally play Ocarina of Time while sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool with the Samsung Galaxy 5
Besides, I'm a proud 3DS owner.
It makes standing in a line, or waiting at an appointment more tolerable. I get your sentiments, but I can use a smart phone to read, listen to music, play a casual game, etc.
And as such, its the perfect tool for waiting, shitting, and the moments before going to sleep
>explain how its useful without naming any situation where it could possibly be useful
You already tried this bullshit argument.
Yeah, I do.
Doing things the more difficult way doesn't make you better. Are you an organic hipster veggie farmer who does things THE SALT OF THE EARTH FARM TO TABLE way just because? Do you brew your own disgusting pisswater beer in your garage cause you're sick of the big beer companies holding your delicious brew down?
But that still doesn't provide an answer to the statement.
I've submerged my Galaxy 5 multiple times for long periods of time.
Plus I always take it into the shower with me.
Still works 100% perfectly and I've had it since it came out.
At worst, the microphone gets a little clogged but if you leave it to dry it drains itself good as new.
Every smartphone I've owned has an emergency call button which allows for phone calls without typing in any sort of password to unlock it. Even phones with annoying passwords could be used to call an ambulance pretty quickly.
The cool thing about smartphones is that I can make posts like this one while I'm at work. That said, I agree that mobile gaming is cancer, and as such do not use my smartphone for video game purposes.
Yea mobage is pretty fucking stupid, but there are some exceptions. For example games like Dragon Ace.
I even play the shit that is Clash of Clans because it's incredibly addicting and everyone at my work plays too. It's good for when I need to pretend I like socializing.
Still, there are plenty of good mobile games and I've ended up playing games on my phone more than anything else since I got my Android.
Your "statement" is loaded and paradoxal. As well as retarded. Not to mention it got completely destroyed last time.
>There are people on this board right now that don't understand what the word hipster means but use it anyway
Seeing as it's a common thing in society for people to make what was popular a few decades ago repopular today I wonder how long it will be before masses of people will want "dumbphones" because it's the retro thing that's in at the time?
Hell yea that's my phone too. It's the best phone out.
The ONLY thing someone could criticize is the camera but I personally don't care about it, plus the panorama mode is really cool.
It also looks better than all other phones by far.
but he didn't say or imply anything about a honeypot
he was saying you're some fag on /v/ and probably not being tracked, but since you've been around /pol/ to pick up that 'muh' cancer maybe you do have something to worry about
I could see Smartphone that LOOK like dumbphones being a thing in the future.
Especially the Razr, that was an iconic phone that short of being a dumbphone had a pretty elegant and handy design. Very Star Trek.
I have 0 friends, no family, never had a girlfriend and I've never come close to kissing a girl
At least I have the gym and my weights
gen 1 ipods had some perks, they weren't locked to shit with anti-sharing bullshit. Plus I think they had the best battery life.
Battery life is often purposely gimped. Do you think the satellites and rovers we send to Mars use our current battery tech? HAHAHA THINK AGAIN!
I don't need to give you an answer, because your "simple remark" is contradictory and nonsensical. It has also already been refuted. You're affectively asking how smarpthones are useful but discount any scenario where they are useful. You are retarded.
Your flipphone is essentially not required, along with anything beyond food and shelter. Saying smartphones are not required is a trivial statement that says nothing except that you're ignorant
>there are actually people with a social life on /v/
Makes me sick
You know, it's entirely possible to own a smartphone without going up your own ass with shitty apps and microtransactions. Voice, text, and e-mail are still part of the deal, everything else is just icing. You can turn off Wifi, 3G/4G, and GPS at any time, it's mostly used by shit that's tied to an account anyway.
I'm a firm believer of getting the most out of everything, and all I ever do with my smartphone outside of the necessities is read emails on the go and play Pixel Dungeon. The only people that "need" smartphones are shitheads that don't know how to computer or people that have a career, and if you're in the latter group you're already on the damn grid regardless.
>mfw the only games I have on my phone are Emulators (GBA, DS, PSP, Genesis, and NES), Metal Slug 3, and
I enjoy a good SRW game on my phone every now and then.
>tfw expensive smartphone
>only one contact which is my mother
Looks like you really do lack reading comprehension. He's implying if you post on /v/ you're already being tracked so you can't complain about it
>implying 'muh' came from /pol/
>muh /pol/ boogyman
Clearly you knew I already made the argument before, as evidence from finding the post in archives.
You had more than enough previous content to read through before making the decision to continue replying.
Its your portable:
Its too fucking convenient of a device to not have.
>I even play the shit that is Clash of Clans because it's incredibly addicting and everyone at my work plays too. It's good for when I need to pretend I like socializing.

phoneless master race reporting in
What's the point of posting on this website anymore? I get banned like every day for no reason, and then shit like this happens for no reason.
I was typing about my phone and got this spam message so I took out all mentions of brand names and still got it. WTF
Smartphones are not the problems is the gaming scene for it
Smartphones nowadays can pretty much do anything handhels can do and do it better while providing more functions
Much like PC to Consoles
I meant to attch this pic
he's saying the literal opposite of what you think he's saying
and the term didn't originate on /pol/ but it's probably where you picked up the meme
All the people in this thread saying they don't own phones (nobody says smart phone anymore) are all neet losers with no friends or girls to call so they don't need one.
I don't get what the big deal is. Yea, it's barely even a game and you hardly do anything but it's pretty fun still. I'm not paying any money to those fuckers.
Eastern freemium is better for a lot of reasons though.
You replied to it to, so now you're just like the other individual who has been replying to the posts, assuming you're not the same person just trying to sound like a different one.
I can say whatever I want and you'll just continue to reply.
>having friends or talking to girls
FUCK OFF NORMIE
>yfw this is the same argument potheads use when someone says that weed should stay illegal
>calling people neet losers on 4chan
>unironcially using the "lol i have a lyfe" defense on 4chan
The only reason I have a smart phone is so I can use a couple of apps my company requires me to have
If I ever get a new job I'm getting a dumb phone asap, and trust me I have never spent a cent on mobile games
>tfw I pay £40 ($80) a month for a phone that I literally only use as an alarm clock
Waste of fucking money
I only use mine for porn. It barely even leaves my bathroom.
>Yea, it's barely even a game and you hardly do anything but it's pretty fun still.
I dont see whats so smart about a smart phone.
Does it make calls? Thats all I give a fuck
>B-B-B-UT YOU CAN USE IT AS FLASH LIGHT
>B-B-B-B-BUT YOU CAN USE IT TO COMPROMISE YOUR OWN SECURITY
>B-B-B-B-B-BUT YOU CAN USE IT TO PUT WACKY PICTURES ON YOUR FRIENDS FACE!
Using a phone for anything other than making calls is like using a console to watch TV
>get new smartphone
>/g/ tells me to root it
>do so and it bricks my phone
>have an S5
>can't even use it underwater because you can't use the screen while it's wet as it doesn't pick up your finger
well i guess it's handy for accidental drops or spills
at least my phone won't leave me.
yeah that's right i have a lyfe and a gf lol
>everyone on 4chan is always wrong except for me
Get DodonPachi and Dragon Ace.
DodonPachi is a classic shump and one of the best out. You pay upfront to unlock the full game, no ads, no bullshit.
Dragon Ace is a multiplayer poker RPG where you collect monsters, level them up, evolve, etc and use them to build a deck of cards for competing in poker tournaments. It's not out in the West but the SEA app is in English and works perfectly. Check out the /vg/ mobage thread for the .apk and a decent community of people who play the game.
If you get Dragon Ace put vg at the start of your username. You get a limited number of friend slots and /vg/ people usually add each other to fully rekt other teams. My username is vg3pac if you decide to start playing.
I got a smartphone last month. Only game I own on it is tic tac toe. I guess I'll get the MKX game to but I'll stop playing that once I unlock all the costumes for the normal version of MKX.
Not being a NEET doesn't mean you have a gf it just means you have taken control of your life and are not a burden on others and mundane normal stuff doesn't upset you. Fuck off NEET.
Dragon Ace is not p2w, that's why I like it. Other mobage games are p2w especially PAD but I've never spent a dime on DA and had no problem advancing and winning.
I like Dragon Ace because it's not stingy with gems, STP, XP, etc. When I first started playing I played for like six hours before I ran out of STP due to leveling up so often. Free gems everyday and every time you evolve and very frequently getting 5 or 10 free gems for various reasons.
>got a hand me down smart phone because my last phone ran out of minutes and was too much of a bother to replace
>don't have any friends or anyone I'm regularly in contact with, only really have it for emergencies
>don't care about face book, twitter, selfies or whatever else most people use
>screen is small, touch buttons are annoying to use, hardly have any freedom to actually customize it or what it runs, battery is drained quickly if I use it at all, has terrible all around sound quality
I really don't see what's so good about these things, I mean it's okay to read news articles on, but that's it, and even that drains the battery pretty quickly. I guess I'm just not the type that these things are for. I can't even imagine wanting to buy another one or the latest one like everyone else is clamoring for. Oh well guess it's just not something I will ever understand.
>not using the wallpaper version
>Year of our lord+2015
It's not. It's not just a port, it's a different version completely redesigned to use a touch screen. But it also has the original game included as well.
The touch screen controls work great.
Someone could argue that it's easier, but shumps are about getting a high score, not simply clearing levels. There are several difficulty settings and a ton of strategy involved to getting better. It isn't in an arcade, but it's still a great way to experience a great Cave shump.
It doesn't fit completely on my screen but I still think it looks nice.
>complete hermit for 14 years
>never talk to anyone
>still want a phone for bar code kanojo and to text mommy for chicky nuggies but they cost $60/mo for a shit plan here
I'm telling you, DA does all that stuff right.
I'm level 60 with a winning team and hardly ever run out of energy points. I didn't even mention how farming for evo materials is actually easy and fun. Most mobage games could take a month to get the right evo supplies but I can harvest enough in one day. It's not as random as most other games.
Plus I think the poker rpg element is really cool and I would love to see it get released in the US.
Taste coming through.
Cropped the left one to be lock screen, right is home.
>it's a different version completely redesigned to use a touch screen
So it's a port tweaked to compensate for touchscreen controls
>The touch screen controls work great.
They really don't. I mean, the game is playable, but it's nothing compared to playing the game on a stick with tactile buttons, or even a gamepad.
>but shumps are about getting a high score
Yeah you should stop posting about shmups.
>but it's still a great way to experience a great Cave shump.
It's actually one of the worst ways to experience a shump.
