So, yeah, I’m a bit disappointed when gadgets need juice every day. It gives me unnecessary stress in my life (not being sarcastic). I tend to use my FP2 less so it lasts longer. Are there alternatives? I’ve been wondering if e-ink is viable for phones, and figured: if you do not use it a lot, perhaps? Apparently there’s already an e-ink smartphone out there: the Light Phone, and now they’re making a successor: Light Phone 2.
It doesn’t do a whole damn lot though, but it supposedly holds for 5 days with only 500 mAh battery.
I’m not entirely sure if the difference between a normal dumbphone warrants the price tag (300 USD now with getting it in april 2019, or 400 USD in store). Also, if it cannot share its connection over Bluetooth/WiFi thats a big minus. OTOH, you’d need a less big [data] plan.
I thought it was interesting to share, if not merely because of the idea and innovation.
Any other thoughts on this?
