The Light Phone 2 is designed to be used as little as possible

The makers of the Light Phone 2 want you to leave your smartphone at home, and use this simple phone with calling, messaging, and an e-ink display instead. You can pre-order one on Indiegogo for $199. If it also had a Kindle app, I might buy one, but I guess that goes against the whole point.

The Light Phone 2 is a 4G phone with a beautiful black & white matte display. It’s a more reliable, durable, and practical phone than its predecessor. It brings a few essential tools to the Light Phone, like messaging, an alarm clock, or a ride home, so you can ‘go light’ more often… or for good!
