Smartphones are powerful tools that are quickly becoming an addiction for many users, which is bolstering the demand for products like the 'BoringPhone.' Positioned as an alternative to a smartphone and a dumb phone, the device features the ability to make calls, send texts, take photos, listen to podcasts and even get directions using GPS. The device doesn't, however, allow for emails, Internet browsing, social media use, gaming or access to the millions of apps on the market.
The 'BoringPhone' was developed by childhood friends Alex Davidson and Jasper Mackenzie who wanted to provide a clean, minimalist experience for those looking to shake off the shackles of smartphone usage. The device features a custom OS and features a total of 32GB of onboard storage, 4GB of RAM and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.
