I guess I forgot to show my current phone.

Samsung T429. I've had 3 Samsungs, and they have never let me down.

The battery itself was about 5"x2 1/2"x14", the overall size of the the phone was 51/2"x 6"x 14 1/2", and the handset laid along the handle that stuck up from the top...

The damn thing put out 6 WATTS! Most phones now put out less than 0.6 watts....

BTW, I never needed a phone until I started driving trucks, so my first cell was a VZ6100...
I hated it...
