Smartphones are powerful tools that can have an addicting effect for some users, so the Light Phone II has been created as an alternative that will help those who feel overwhelmed by the feature-rich devices.
The cellphone is focused on a minimalistic design and is intended to not be as flashy or distracting as alternatives presently on the market. The device can be used for making calls, sending texts, playing music, taking notes and more, but doesn't display images, send or receive email, provide news updates or go on social media. This will require users to be more observant of their use of these services without losing out on essential functionalities of mobile technology.
The Light Phone II is available now for preorder and is expected to launch before the end of October at a price point of $350.
