You re-purpose it (What)
Sale it (How)
Keep it in drawer (like me)

I have 4-5 with me. I posted then on OLX, but price offered was heart breaking. Donate and be happy?

So thought, why not ask legends. What to do with them?

I always sell them, on eBay. Wait…No eBay any more. So where to sell now? Maybe I’ll try Erodov and TechEnclave. OLX and Quikr are worse than the bottom of a sewer.

Why sell? I don’t have any emotional attachment with these technological products whatsoever. Waste of money to purchase them at first place, incredible waste of money when trying to resell them. Though if you get really low price then maybe giving away (donating) is a wiser option. Keeping it is utterly meaningless, unless it’s a feature phone like them old Nokias.

I have a Nokia E7 which I use as a clock hooked to the USB port on the TV to charge it.. Since the screen saver keeps the AMOLED screen on even when off.. Its still a great phone but unsupported so not usable for much other than calling..

I have huge clock installed in all my android.

1 phone is set in my office table. 2nd right over TV which draw power from usb.

Still there are too many.

Know what? Some time i cast “huge clock” on TV through anycast in night.

That’s fun. But not utility because we always know what time it is without those clock too

Usually Mobiles will be damaged Display Problem/Screen Crack otherwise we’d hav had more old mobiles.

Usually the mobile is fine, it is the battery that has the problem. Since a replacement battery would cost more than the mobile it is not worth getting it fixed.. But we use a 10 year old sony because the battery lasts almost 2 weeks as a spare..
