While Game of Thrones is set in a fictional time period, who wouldn’t be curious to know what their favorite Game of Thrones characters would be flaunting if they existed in today’s day and age. So, being a fan of the series myself, I thought I would put together my own piece on which phones would some of those characters carry if they were in our period.
To start off, I am doing five characters which I like, Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Jaime Lannister, Lord Varys and of course, Tyrion Lannister. I try my best to add more soon, but for now, hope you guys like this.
Please also note that these characters are property of the show, and HBO, and by using them, I intend, in no way, to infringe on any copyrights. It’s all in good fun.
#1. Daenerys Targaryen
Let’s start with Daenerys, who may have seen ups and downs, but her spirit is not easily broken. When she can afford it, she rules in style and takes pride in her image. Which is why, we think she would have gone for a unique phone that not only goes with her style but also serves as a bold statement of her equally bold nature.
She would be rocking a Vertu, Signature Touch.
#2. Jon Snow
Jon Snow or Lord Commander, wouldn’t really care for material possessions much. He seems like more of a memento cherishing guy, and I feel he would still be carrying an old and trusty Nokia 3310, passed on to him, and something he would like to pass on to someone deserving.
#3. Jaime Lannister
Jamie, born in a life of privilege, managed to lose his hand. While he does value riches and is a bit of a show off, he is also one to go with what is conventionally considered the best and…is golden.
He would have gone for a 5 inch plus display however, but two-handed operation isn’t really his forte anymore. Hence, the iPhone 6s gold makes perfect sense.
#4. Lord Varys
Lord Varys is a master and keeper of secrets and whispers. He has his spies or sparrows everywhere in the kingdom, and we imagine he must be really paranoid about his own cellular communication.
Hence, we think he would be carrying a BlackBerry, and since he doesn’t seem like someone who would trust BlackBerry Priv because it’s new, we’ve given him a BlackBerry Q10.
#5. Tyrion Lannister
Tyrion Lannister, one of the all time favorites and most popular characters in the series, is a tough one to pick a phone for. However, given his penchant for flamboyance and showmanship, and the fact that he does need to compensate a bit for his size, we’ve decided to pick the iPhone 6s Plus in Rose Gold for him.
This is it for now guys. I am not quite sure which one of the more popular characters would be sporting an Android device, but we will be brainstorming for some of the other characters soon and adding more to this piece.
Hope you guys liked this – we would love to hear from you, so feel free to comment below and share your thoughts.
