Being more connected couldn’t actually be what we needed to become happier,” claimed designers Kaiwei Tang and Joe Hollier. “There were all of these products and apps coming out left and right all claiming to make our lives better. These products didn’t respect the user or their time.”

These sentiments brought the duo to a conclusion of designing a mobile phone to prevent people from being overly attached to the internet. The Light Phone, although fully functional for calling and texting, does not have the basic tools of a modern smartphone. Apps can’t be downloaded on the phone which means users can’t go on Instagram, Facebook, or simply check their emails.

But that’s the whole point of the Light Phone – to encourage people to embrace the basic purpose of a compact phone.
