Do you ever feel like you spend way too much time on your smartphone? From emails to social media to apps, thinking about going without our devices for long periods of time can be a little bit scary. If you want to stay connected but seriously strip down the ways you use technology, we may have found the perfect phone for you.

The Light Phone II is a smartphone created to "be used as little as possible," according to its creators Joe Hollier and Kaiwei Tang. The unlocked 4G LTE mobile phone, which costs $350 and comes in either black or light gray, has two primary functions: calling and messaging. There are absolutely no apps or news feeds. "A phone is a tool, and it should serve you as the user, not the other way around," the website reads. "The Light Phone II is a phone that actually respects you."

The duo released this model in 2019 after their first model, The Light Phone, quickly sold out. Although this phone is also already sold out, you can still preorder it now for a mid-March delivery.
