The Light Phone 2 Aims To Break Smartphone Addiction ‘A phone to be used as little as possible’
The Light Phone is a cellphone that was released last year with an interesting premise: strip away all the extraneous, distracting pieces of modern smartphones — like internet, texting, email, and photography — to leave the distilled essence of a phone. It could make calls and store nine phone numbers, but that was about it.
It was an interesting idea, promising a life where you could remove the distractions of a regular smartphone while not cutting off the rest of the world entirely, but it was ultimately a little too limited. The Light Phone 2 is the successor to the original Light Phone, and it takes that same minimalist idea but adds a few more features to make it more feasible to use as a regular phone.
