This quirky phone called the ‘Retro Brick Handset’ by Shisha Labs is a nostalgic homage to the 1980s. If you are old enough to remember built-in car phones and the days when you could barely fit a cell phone into your pocket, then this product might be of interest to you.

The phone itself is connected via Bluetooth to your cellphone, so all of your incoming calls will be received and there is a built-in speaker for hands-free conversations. Although not-so-practical due to its size, it would definitely make a statement and a great conversation piece.

There seems to be a growing appeal in combining digital with old-school, such as these Antique Digitized Keyboards and Vinyl Ads. Even though technology is advancing, some still crave that nostalgic feel to be incorporated into their products. Stats for Nostalgic Smartphone Designs Trending: Older & Warm
