        Little known fact, it was originally called the flocka flame tablet but amazon took him to court since they thought people would get it confused with their fire series of tablets.

    Honestly kendrick is onto something good here, the biggest thing holding it back is the tiny e-ink screen. I can't imagine trying to use this thing as a GPS. No camera either is pretty damning. But the idea of it is very appealing to me at least and I see it working well as a safe introductory phone for kids who are old enough to start using one. Also not a lot of language or accessibility support currently which doesn't help it.
    In its current state I wouldn't buy one but I hope there's a light phone 3 with a camera and some kind of better display. Also I hope he ignores the requests for Spotify support, that seems to go against the whole point of the phone

    The lightephone was kind of cool for a while before it actually shipped and was revealed to be much worse than what was promised by the kickstarter. Now that they've attached a celebrity to it, I just hate it.

    I am involved in the dumbphone shit. gotta nokia 2780.

    I'm all for less tech in the phones, but I don't think its sustainable. Remaining connected to even my friends is hard on the nokia.

    The only smart-dumbphone available is 'spensive as fuck and sold by a christcuck. I wish there was a usable phone without the addictive tech :[

      Holy shit homosexuals, how can you retards browse a 'tech' board and still fall for such shitty marketing techniques?
      There is no need to shell out $300 to these shitty phone companies if you can't self control and use your phone as a 'dumb' phone.
      Its pretty simple.
      Use ADB to remove your playstore, browser, social media apps, etc... and whatever you think is 'addictive'. You might also uninstall the 'apk installer' package with which you can prevent yourself from further installing any app from being installed without ADB but that's going too far I would say.
      https://www.xda-developers.com/uninstall-carrier-oem-bloatware-without-root-access/
      Then use this applock software to lock your settings, app installer, etc... and whatever to prevent access to them.
      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sp.protector.free&hl=en&gl=US
      I like this one because it has smart 'app lock' that blocks apps depending on the time and feature to lock newly installed apps instanly so you can't cheat. Make a long ass password and give it to someone like your grandpa or grandma living two-three states away.
      Then if you want access to certain websites as needed, use a 'whitelist' browser. All the apps in the play store are shit and I use this one.
      https://sandbox-web-browser.apkcafe.in/
      It used to be on Playstore but got removed. There are other whitelist browsers in the playstore now but their features are kind of limited.
      I have searched for open source alternatives for the above two apps but so far I have not found any.

        Why buy a product that you have to spend hours removing features from? The e-ink screen should give it weeks of battery life too

    Retarded concept. With the help of ADB you can turn any 'smart' phone in to a 'dumb' phone. I think I might as well start a business turning people's smartphones to 'dumbphones' at the cost of $50 per sitting lmao. Why are people so retarded?
