A Phone That Only Does Calls, Texts, and Alarms

posted by Jason Taylor -

The Light Phone 2, which people have dubbed the “Dumb Phone,” is a tiny, minimalist phone that can only do a few things: call, text, do simple directions, and set alarms. Yep, no apps.

According to Light, the company behind the phone, the idea is to get people to put down their phones and actually engage with each other. They want people to leave their Smartphones at homes once in a while and "go light."

I think it's a great idea! Since it's a crowd-funded idea, the phones cost a little more than you might think, with a price tag of $250.
