The light phone is opposite of exactly what your smartphone does. Except for making and receiving calls, the light phone literally does nothing. You can not use it for browsing, checking your emails, chatting with friends on WhatsApp, or everything you do it with your smartphone.
Physically, the device is thin and light and is about the size of a credit card. It measures 3.4 inches x 2.0 inches and weighs just 36.5 gms. It contains a white Dot Matrix LED touch screen that displays only a keypad and the clock. Ten numbers can be held in memory for speed dial.
A micro USB port is available for charging, and the phone has a battery life of 20 days in standby mode on a single charge. The device comes pre-loaded with 500 minutes of free talk time and a SIM card. The Light Phone can be paired with a smartphone via an app to use as a backup in situations where your smartphone is running out of battery.
