Light Phone 2: Just the essentials

Have you ever wanted a phone with just the basics? Make some calls, send some messages, do some navigation, that kind of thing? If your answer is yes. Light Phone 2 and you are made for each other. This minimalist phone is based on e-ink technology and has just the basic features (which we’re gonna take a look at later in this article), that makes you spend less time on your phone and more on what you love doing.

Although the light phone 2 is in the prototype stage, the product looks promising. And it has raised 500% of it’s expected target with 1 more month to go!

Now keep in mind that is not your usual smartphone. It’s for people who find the modern smartphone too distracting or I might even say overwhelming, and would just to like stick with the basics. Light Phone 2 would support features like messaging and taking calls. Their team is also exploring more features like alarm clock, ride sharing etc but aren’t guaranteed.
