A Brooklyn based company last year came with a unique idea of disconnecting people with there phone. The company, named LIGHT, last year released a smartphone which can do only a set of minimalist tasks, came up with there first phone Light Phone 1 which could just do send and receive calls.
The company has come up with the successor of the Light Phone 1, the Light Phone 2 which has features like, send and receive calls and texts, auto-reply, keep and retrieve contacts/speed dials, and give simple directions. It also has a basic alarm.
This phone is made to disconnect people and connect people back with real life. Today people are more into these smartphones and this is really a good option for people to disconnect with the virtual world inside their phones.
From the pure design standpoint, the simpler a phone is, the more intuitive and efficient it can be for you to use. You don’t have to spend all of your time fishing through a bunch of menus or screens to find what you need. Fewer apps also can translate into longer battery life, as there’s not a ton of unnecessary stuff running in the background all the time, the purpose behind both Light and Light Phone 2 is to get us to free us from the balloon drop of distractions technology shoves in our faces. The creators know digital and mobile aren’t going away, which is why they give you the basics, but they want us to purposely disconnect and really experience life outside of a screen.
