Flip Mobile Phones
Flip phones rose in popularity in the 2000s as portable mobile phone devices. Mixing the functionality of a mobile phone with the retro charm of flip-closure mechanism, flip phones are truly iconic.
Original Flip Phones
Small, eminently pocketable, lightweight and stylish, many original flip phones are still available to purchase. Their specifications don't hold much against today's smartphones, but that isn't their point. Today, whether refurbished or pre-owned, they remain not only an apple in the eye of the nostalgic beholder, but perform perfectly well as practical pieces of tech, at prices that are often more affordable for all. These models remain highly functional and reliable, often with much longer battery life than smartphones.
Contemporary Flip Phones
A flip phone revival that began to gather pace around 2014 has inspired manufacturers to re-issue flip phones. Naturally, new flip phones abandon the lowly specifications of their predecessors and add contemporary features including waterproofing, 4G, large internal storage, OLED screens, wireless charging, micro SD slots and generous internal storage that, together, could prove tempting for even the most hardcore smartphone owner.
Personal Safety for the Elderly
For their size and simplicity of operation along with excellent battery life, flip phones have become one of the devices of choice to provide safety and security for the elderly. Dedicated devices have features that include large illuminated buttons, bright screens, SOS dialling, voice recognition, M4/T4 hearing compatibility and extra loud ringers and volume. There are several manufacturers of flip phones for the elderly, ensuring there's something to suit all needs.
A Flip Phone for Every Reason
Whether it's for a break from your smartphone, an upgrade from a feature phone, for the safety and security of a loved one or just out of pure nostalgia, flip phones are here to stay. Single screens, double screens, original, retro or modern, there's a fabulous range to choose from.
