Even though most people think smartphone is the ultimate of modern necessities, some people still prefer simpler/dumb phone. Unfortunately, most dumb phones are ugly.
Luna Phone is a beautiful, minimalist phone where the concept limits itself to the most basic functions of a phone, calling and messaging. There’s no camera, high definition LCD, GPS or internet connection. Instead, Luna phone features a sleek geometric screen out of LED backlight and a touchpad at the bottom screen. Due to its limited functionalities, the battery can run for days instead of hours, less is more.
There are no buttons, writing text message can be done via touchpad, you can also make a call or save new contacts. You can kiss good bye to any distractions or smartphone addiction, Luna is simply just phone, nothing more. Simplicity at its best.
