No smartphone, the LIGHT Phone could be all you need

By stripping back the features, the inventors say owners of the Light Phone won't be obsessed with checking their phones constantly.  The device comes preloaded with 500 minutes, a SIM card, and an app to connect it to an existing smartphone

The world has become obsessed with ‘smart’ technology. From smartwatches to smart kitchens, people are increasingly demanding internet-enabled, app-driven products. But for one pair of designers, the smart revolution has gone too far. In response, the New York-based team has created the Light Phone – a device which they claim is the ‘anti-smartphone’.
