However, his experience was horrible since the quality and integration of everything was poor.

The era of Blackberry was too long ago. Some users are still bitter about how bad the phone was.

Barely anyone was happy with how the phone functioned. People of the iPhone era probably wouldn't understand the frustration.

9. Windows ME
