Technology has come a long way since the days where all you could do with a mobile phone was make a call. Although smartphone innovation has been revolutionary, there will never be a greater connection than human interaction and personal touch.
Consumers have learned how to quickly blend in the hustle and bustle of fast-paced living in today’s digital age, with moments of mindfulness. The average mobile phone user checks their device over 200 times per day – often times it’s not intentional. For all of today’s technological blessings, there are still devices that allow you to answer only to what you want –the feature phone.
Whether at a dinner with your other half, in meetings or even at live concerts, the feature phone gives you the choice to minimize your screen time and live in the moment, with the benefits of still being in touch.
Handsets that only allow the user to perform basic functions like make calls and send texts are becoming increasingly popular, because of their innate ability to allow one to fully enjoy down time, fully disconnected from invasive emails while still being able to communicate when necessary.
Understanding that Rome was not built in a day – here are some great benefits of feature phones should you wish to disconnect, even if it’s for just a little bit.
Best of both worlds
Some moments only come once in a lifetime and require your full attention – these are the moments that need you to be fully present. While some moments may be unexpected and urgent; in all instances a feature phone will allow you to have means of communication no matter how exciting or dire the situation.
With so many distractions making it hard to truly connect, sometimes getting back to basics can help you be a bit more intentional when you choose who you’re going to connect with and help foster more meaningful interactions.
Just the two of us
When a romantic moment is disrupted because of a text, email, or any other task, the message is, “What I’m doing on my phone is more important than you right now.” A little really does go a long way. For your next date, consider only taking your feature device, giving your loved one undivided attention, after all, all good things come in twos.
Extended battery life
Feature phones often have the added benefit of extended battery life with just one charge. Heading out to a festival or enjoying the great outdoors camping with your family, the feature phone is a trusty companion that won’t leave you in the dark.
The straight to the point, no-frills handsets such as the Nokia 8110 4G and the Nokia 3310 continue to stand the test of time solely for their ability to do basic functions well. This coupled with the added benefit of: reduced notifications and updates, less data costs and a pocket friendly design. It’s a win-win situation.
