How to resurrect your dead smartphone

The Classic is a smartphone which sacrifices screen space for the tactile pleasure of a full keyboard, something we haven’t seen since the mid 2000s.

The phone is being advertised as the “ultimate business phone”, offering speed and control to its user.

Offering a four-row keyboard, a classic trackpad, faster web browsing and longer battery life, the Classic plays up to the growing trend for tech nostalgia whilst trying to beat the latest iPhone models at their own game.

The model is currently only available in the United States, retailing for around US$449, but the company is reportedly working towards bringing it to other countries.

Recently, mobile phone users have been reverting back to older models of phone for increased simplicity, lower prices and higher security.
