We’ve all seen mobile phones used in films and think, what a cool phone, what a cool actor/actress, I need that phone too so I can be cool!
Without further ado, here are our 11 Best Mobile Phones from Movies!
Love him or hate him James Bond is undoubtedly cool and has always carried the latest gadgets throughout the years. In this film he was using a Sony Xperia TL, elegant with 4’6 HD screen and a camera with a then whopping 13 million megapixels.
They call me ‘Xperia, Sony Xperia’.
The Matrix (1999)
It survived being dropped off a skyscraper, this phone was indestructible!!
The mobile was crucial in the Matrix, Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) sent Neo (Keanu Reeves) a Nokia 8110 so that he could receive his first instructions. Every geek wanted Neo’s mobile and on the back of this huge success Nokia launched a limited edition of the 8110 at an enormous price of 800 GBP! In reality the mobile in the film had been tweaked so it had a spring loaded slider to open itself for heightened dramatic effect. But fans were not disappointed when Nokia launched their 7110 which included this design feature!
This loveable little foul mouthed, disrespectful, uneducated rogue appealed to everyone. His phone was vital to arrange all night parties in Chicago, his mobile of choice was the then popular iPhone 4 of course!
Iron Man (2008)
One of the coolest cinema Superheroes ever is Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. Iron Man is CEO of Stark industries, leader in technology and innovation, it was only fitting therefore that he used an LG VX9400. Image
A tense knife edge film of will he or won’t he make it. Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) wakes up underground trapped in a coffin. His only way to communicate to his kidnappers is a Blackberry Bold 9700, a lighter and a penknife. After making frantic useless calls to voicemails and unhelpful bureaucratic officials his last call is to his family who are not even at home!
Perhaps it would have been a different ending if he had been given an Android?Image
Batman – The Dark Knight (2008)
We couldn’t forget this iconic superhero either! Retitled the Dark Knight for the big screen in the successful trilogy of Christopher Nolan. Every superhero needs a helper and in this case its Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman) that hands Batman his Nokia 5800 in order that he can play at his leisure, Snakes and Ladders whilst listening to his favourite songs and browsing pictures with Catwoman!Image
Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
Another iconic film from the early noughties. To break the bank at the largest casino in Las Vegas you’re going to need a good plan and a good team. Welcome Brad Pitt and his Motorola V8160 complete with antenna, him and his team take down Andy Garcia’s casino spectacularly.I mage
Up in the Air (2009)
Ryan Bingham is a corporate downsizing expert whose cherished life on the road is threatened just as he is on the cusp of reaching ten million frequent flyer miles and just after he’s met the frequent-traveller woman of his dreams. Thanks to his trusty Blackberry Curve Bingham flirts via Blackberry Messenger whilst in the Hotel Hilton meaning he is never out of touch with her. Smooch!
Wall St (1987)/Reservoir of Dogs (1992)
The world’s first commercial mobile phone the Motorola DynaTAC. It was big, chunky and would have caused some serious damage if dropped on your foot from anything above waist height. Nonetheless, being the alpha males that they are, Michael Douglas and Chris Penn lifted this colossal unit multiple times throughout the movies.Image
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
Pierce Brosnan uses it to remotely drive his car! We say remotely, it was from the backseat… but that’s still pretty impressive stuff! Obviously people weren’t expecting to go out, buy this phone and get the same sort of features, like some of the Samsung SPH-N270 purchasers were. Instead, we saw an interest in the prototype that drove it to market in the form of the Ericcson R380.
