Are Cell Phones Accessories?

post #1 of 11

I say absolutely not. I find they look terrible on people's belts (and wherever else they put them). Do I put it on my belt? Yes, I'm guilty but I try to hide it (or forget about it) if possible

They're kind of tacky if used as an accessory.

Cell phones are a utilitarian device. That being said, they should at least look good.

Honestly I don't care what my phone looks like, as long as it works.

For the amount of time that some people have them to their ear, I can see why they care how they look. Mine mostly stays in my pocket. When I pull it out people want to look at it, but I'm sure mostly because it's new (the Q). It actually looks really, really boring in my opinion, which is fine. I hate silver electronics though, so that counts for a lot. A black one would be much better looking.

They are necessities not accessories, but they do reflect one's taste and therefore have to look good when in use, the only time they should be in sight.

If you're wearing a bespoke Kiton with bespoke Lobbs, then I mean.. come on, you need a Vertu and an Amex Black. ACCESSORIES.

(No, they're not accessories. They're functional electronic devices used to make telephone calls and cause accidents.)

Cell phones are the work of the devil--period.

I'd say they are an accessory. If a wallet is an accessory, a cell phone definitely is.

I'd say they aren't. But I can see why people say they are
But then again aren't most clothes really utilitarian?

As much as I would like to say "no, simply a utilitarian device etc), i say they are. I basically chose my SLVR because I really like how it looks. As a utilitarian device, its not that good - but it does get a lot of compliments. Personally Id rather have a nice looking phone than an overpriced mechanical watch. *seeks shelter*
