John’s phone only makes and takes calls


If you really cannot understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to iPhones and Android devices, then the world’s simplest phone maybe the one for you.

Dubbed John’s Phone, the mobile can only make and receive phone calls. It cannot text, take pictures, play music, send/receive emails, surf the internet or run any apps.

The one nod to modernity is the speed dial feature so you can assign a contact to the keypad. If you want to maintain an address book, John’s phone does provide one, albeit as a pen and paper.

For around £68, you get a phone that can make and receive calls, boasts a single ringtone, vibrates and has three volume settings; loud, normal and silent.

It has a micro-USB port for charging only and because of the lack of other features, the phone sports a battery life of three weeks!

The company states: “John’s Phone is the world’s simplest cell phone: you call, you hang up, and that’s it. John’s Phone is easy to use wherever you go. It’s the no-contract cell phone you’ve been waiting for, without any frills or unnecessary features.”

But it does come in five colours, none of which will let you play Angry Birds.
