Experience

I have had my Light Phone 2 for almost two years now; my teenager has one as well. Although there are sometimes some annoying software glitches (e.g., the alarm or text sounds stop working occasionally), they always resolve themselves. LP is extremely responsive, both via customer service and via the LP Reddit. Most importantly, it's a small phone with no internet or camera, so it really helps with smartphone addiction and distraction. It's not only my primary mobile phone; it's my only mobile phone.

Feedback

Things you can do on the LP 2: -text (single person or group), including voice-to-text -call -get directions (GPS) -make notes via the Notes app -download music or podcasts -set multiple alarms -automatically forward received texts with photos or links to your email -see emojis Things you can't do: -take photos -access the internet, including apps -see photos on the device itself -create emojis Yes, it takes some getting used if you've been using a smartphone for years and years, but the benefits to mental health and focus are pretty great. Also, all updates come via software, so you only have to buy one phone to use indefinitely (at least for now!) . Also: I wish there was a QR code reader, but that would require a camera.

I used version one of this and it was crazy to go out and leave my actual phone behind. Definitely good to disconnect but still feel accessible. I don't know if I would switch completely, but worth the experience particularly if you're concerned with your relationship with your phone and technology or having trouble focusing on single tasks.
