Amidst the flair of big name brands like Samsung, LG, and Nokia are the more invisible ingredients to the dish. These are the small things you barely notice when you buy a phone — smaller even than the Carl Zeiss lens you see on your camera. Take T9 for instance.
T9, that little mode you have on your phone that activates predictive texting. Who uses that? I remember my very first phone was a Nokia 3210, the first phone to have moving graphics and predictive text input. In the short run, texting became so much easier with T9 mode turned on.
