  • 10 Ways a “Dumb” Phone is Better Than a Smartphone


    Dumbphone price

    2. Price

    Given the dwindling demand and advancing technology dumbphones are unsurprisingly cheaper than they ever were, especially compared to smartphones. You can get them dirt cheap, sometimes at a price so low you can almost treat it as a disposable.

    On top of that you can get them cheap and off contract, unlocked. No obligations, barely any expense, no worries.

    There are even some new models around with great modern cameras, higher resolution screens, nice interfaces, yet still falling under the category of a dumbphone or a feature phone, with all of the advantages that we’re talking about here.

      I am carrying my dumb phone (was on sale for $4) along my smartphone. I get distracted as soon as I used the smartphone, so I now switch it off when at work. The battery life is definitely the biggest advantage as this article claims. The only disadvantage is that once in a while you might forget your dumb phone at home, so you need to carry it in your favorite pocket.

      Got a Samsung SCH-S336C that has taken a beating and keeps on ticking. Survived a trip in the kitchen oven (helping wife with supper, dropped phone into the oven, took 5 mins to fish it out); numerous wettings, it is Louisiana and we do have a very humid environment; has been slung across the house more than I can count (it’s kinda hard to hang on to); and the little thing, despite the bumps and bruises, will make a call, text, without hesitation. It’s the Eveready bunny minus the ears and tail !

      Well, i actually did the last point, and i actually carried my dumb phone and smartphone together, and and the end of the journey, i left my smartphone at home because its giving me less headaches, no messenger, no viber, no whatsapp, no battery life issues . . . Have to say that i own a very special “dumb” phone, i have the Nokia 3220 Disco phone, and you know what?? I get more attention from the girls than a guy with an iphone 7 plus, just because when i receive a phone call or a text message, my phone flashes from the sights in some very fancy colors, and that draws more attention from the beauty’s than a iphone 7 plus, coz i aint a snob that has to have the nicest, biggest phone that i can get, but its makes them understand that i am different and that i like to be noticed . . . And that fact alone is a MAJOR overhaul to the females 😉 so damn you smartphone users, my phone is UNIQUE just like I AM!!

        haha, I had a good laugh when I read your comment, Bram! I think a dumb phone does not exclude that you carry a smartphone (as a “computer”, rather than a phone when you need it). I might want to get a disco-Nokia-phone like yours (grappig!), even though I doubt that it will get me any more or less girls… 😉

        I’m a smartphone user and I act just like you because I’m not on my smartphone a lot.I like my smartphone but I’m not addicted like somepeople are.It will be cool if you and me were friends because even tho I’m a smartphone user,I still pay attention to my surroundings.

      Nice article. Seems like today’s “smart-phones” do everything but work reliably as a phone.
