The Light Phone 2

Mar 2, 2018

Category: Tech

A couple of years ago, the world was introduced to the original Light Phone – a credit card-sized minimalist calling device that did away with all the bells, whistles, and distractions of smartphones. But, it had some limitations that stopped it from really being a contender. Now, a new version – the Light Phone 2 – is here and it improves upon the original in some major ways.

One of the biggest downsides of the first Light Phone was that it literally only made phone calls. This new 4G one, however, is equipped not just to phone home, but also sends texts and features an alarm clock. Better yet, it’s compatible with ride hailing apps and even has a navigational feature, so you can still find your way around town. So, it’s got enough capability to truly replace your busy-body smartphone, but not so much that you’ll be glued permanently to its E-ink screen. Back it on IndieGoGo now starting at $250.
