Top 6 Best Flip Phones 2014



Flip phones, also called clamshell phones, are convenient for users who don't want to have to lock their keypad to prevent unwanted keypresses. They are also usually not as tall as candy bar phones and fit easily in your pockets. Rumor has it that clamshell phones were inspired by the Star Trek original series' Communicator.
