10 reasons “dumb” phones are better than “smart” phones
For a pretty widespread hot take
1. endless battery life
I think my first phone could last a full week without needing to be recharged.
2. credit with hipsters
3. access to that fun snake game
and the pong game too
4. T9 typing skills
this skill is admittedly niche
5. “artsy” photo ops
having a dumb phone is basically the same as having a Polaroid, right?
6. not needing a phone case
that’s $20 back in your pocket
7. less afraid of your phone getting stolen
8. less time-wasting on apps
…because there are no apps
9. droppable without fear
dumb phones are incredibly durable
10. more human interaction
the phone is less of a distraction, because it’s so much less powerful and fun. everything has its perks!
