2. Motorola Razr V3
Year of Release: 2004

In more ways than one; the Razr V3 which Motorola launched in the year 2004 popularized the phenomena of a flip phone. This concept caught on with the youngsters who found “flipping” the phone exciting. The sleek metallic body of the phone also appealed to the users. In the beginning Motorola marketed this phone as a fashion handset, but slowly they reduced the price and they found that by the year 2006 they sold over 50 million units of the phone and in its four year of existence they sold more than 130 million units.

With statistics like these, this phone till date remains to be the best shelling flip phone in the gadget world.  The small window screen on the flip that showed the receiving of a call or a incoming call was yet another feature that was loved by many, unlike many flip phones of its time, Razr V3 was among the very few who came with this window feature.
