Nostalgic tech is back, and the Y2K flip phone trend has gone full circle. These Clamshell-style folding phones were popular in the early 2000s, and have been adapted to the modern age with newer models from Samsung and Motorola boasting super AMOLED displays and 4K video capabilities. 

But the more basic and affordable flip phone models out there continue to be the top mobile of choice for those who don't enjoy the latest feature-packed flagship camera phones, or need to disappear off the social media grid for a while.
