The Just 5 Brick Phone is a retro take on the cellphone. Taking inspiration from phones from days gone by, this cell is an interesting twist on an item that we carry everyday.

When cell phones initially went to market, they were large. As time went on, phones became smaller and more technologically advanced. The Just 5 Brick Phone has taken all the memorable parts of the larger phones and combined them into one package. This cell contains many features like the pull down antenna, a radio and a calculator. Also, it has large buttons which make placing a call or sending a text easy. Sometimes, it is nice to remember a time when everyone didn't have their face in their phones, and this cell is a flashback to when phones were actually used for placing calls.
