Let’s be real–we all spend way too much time using our smartphones on a regular basis. The constant access and 24/7 availability is great, but do we really need to spending upwards of 43 days a year on average staring at a small screen? Probably not. That’s where BoringPhone comes in. BoringPhone is a smartphone for people who want to disconnect while still having access to everything they’ll need to experience the world around them. It has calling, messaging, camera, GPS / nav, podcasts, music and tethering / hot spot functionality. You can still use the BoringPhone to get where you’re going, fit in a workout and take pictures of whatever you’re doing while listening to a podcast or music. What it won’t allow you to do is reply to hundreds of emails, respond to thousands of social media notifications or install a bunch of mindless games you never wanted in the first place. The custom handset and proprietary OS has everything you need in a phone and nothing else that will distract you, which makes it the perfect smartphone for most of us.
