There are many reasons why people love their smartphones. They provide a seamless blend of communication and computing, are easy to use, and always with you. However, there are times when simple cell phones are still useful, especially when it comes to battery life.
The Nokia 105 was presented at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and it’s their most affordable phone up to date. It costs only €15 (~$20 USD) and it was intended for the first-time cell phone buyers. It comes with a bright screen, clear menus, and features like an FM radio, multiple alarm clocks, a dust and splash-proof keypad, as well as a flashlight.
Its most important feature is that it can last up to 35 days on a single charge – though it’s not clear how much of that is talk time and how much is standby time. This phone is definitely something useful to have as a backup device, in case of an emergency.
