Oh the days of flip phones were glorious - you felt like a king. You whipped your phone out, flipped it open and started being the cool person on a flip phone. Not anymore, though.

Well, Samsung is going backwards with the new SCH-W2014 smartphone, which is the most powerful flip phone on the market. It features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC - a 2.3GHz quad-core part, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and 2-megapixel front-facer, with dual-SIM connectivity. Storage-wise, we have 32GB of on-board flash backed up by microSD expandability.

 

The screen itself is lacklustre, at just 3.7 inches it features an 800x480 resolution. It does win some brownie points back by being a Super AMOLED display, though. We have a removeable 1900mAh battery, and Android 4.3 as its OS. All of this comes in at 173.5g. Where it'll hurt you is the price: $1640 or so. This is absolutely insane, but there'll be some people who will cough up this money to own it.
