Light Phone 2 Review | Can This Phone Cure Your Social Media Addiction?

– [Eric] Do you think you have a social media phone problem? – For sure! For sure I am addicted in some
way or another to my phone. (ethereal music) – [Eric] I'm Eric Limer, Tech Editor at Gear Patrol, and I tested the Light Phone 2. It's a tiny little E-ink smartphone that's designed to try to help you break your worst social media habits by literally not supporting
social media at all, ever. And we took it around to
some folks in the office to get their knee jerk first impressions.

I talked to Gear Patrol
co-founder and fellow geek, Ben Bowers, for his thoughts about it, and then I'll let you
know the kind of deep, dark, existential questions, that using a phone like this makes you stare into the
mirror and ask yourself. (ethereal music) – Okay, very devicey. – It's cool. It's kinda cute. – It says, Go Light. – All right, correct me
if I go off track here. It is a phone for people who
don't wanna use their phone, but do wanna use their phone
enough to get a separate phone that does nearly all of
what their phone does, except for one or two
very specific things? – Stripped down, old school, but new school at the same time. Kinda like it! I'm gonna hit the little button here and I've got phone numbers! – No social, no camera, no anything. Can I send text messages with it? – [Eric] Yes it has texts, calls, maps.

– Okay, that's kinda cool. I remember when the original came out, it was so limited that it was– – [Eric] Just phone. – Yeah, it was so pure that it made so little sense
in terms of actual use. I think they're going
in the right direction. – Nice little qwerty keyboard I could probably pen
something out this way. Quick touch, little feedback. Buzzing which is cool and all right, so I'm lookin' at just phone, texts, right? No camera, no social. – I mean they're going in the direction of becoming an actual phone, like smartphone, iPhone. But it's cool. I can't bash the concept that hard. – It's probably a nice way to unplug, but stay plugged. – In initially trying to use it, I'm going to go ahead and say that I do not understand how to use it. – I would be into something like this. I could, as much as I
love checkin' the socials, and postin' stuff, I could be into this maybe
as a part-time phone.

Maybe it's a weekend device. – I'm gonna guess it
costs somewhere about, (buzzes) let's call it $200.00 bucks? – [Eric] It's $349.00. – $349.00. The price of a fairly recent used iPhone. Maybe it's a good stop-gap thing. Maybe it'll be a fun dry
January-type of phone. But if you stick with this for too long, you are going to be left behind. – Okay, so $349.00 for this guy! Yeah, that's a tough sell unfortunately. As much as I think this is cool, I feel like it would need to be a lot more bulletproof feeling. It's a little plasticky for that amount. But I still think the concept
is cool and very valid. I would just hope that
it could be something… You know I have kids, too. I think this could be an awesome device for a young middle-schooler. But I don't know if $340.00's gonna work when I can get something
basically of full-fledged (chuckles) device for man, $60.00 bucks with a plan.

Tough sell on the price, awesome concept. – Ultimately it's cool. I wish that it made
sense for me to use it. It definitely seems
better than the first one, but instead of buying a separate phone you could just delete some apps. – [Ben] My first gut
is that it feels a lot like the old Nexus 5
with this matte plastic, but I don't know why it
needs to be so tiny! (laughs) – Yeah I know, it is so– – It's a little hard to grip. – It is so ridiculously small. – I actually, I mean I assume the battery
life is pretty good. I don't mind the E-ink at all. I mean overall the matteness
of it is kinda nice in an age where you get the smear-heavy fingerprint stuff.

What can this do besides call and text? – It's got alarms right now. (chuckles) There is (chuckles) ride share and maps are coming in the future, along with some basic music stuff. So rudimentary features rolling out– – It's got a headphone jack. Too bad no one has headphones anymore with a headphone jack. (laughing) That's a loss. So is this still a version
where it has to require another cell phone to get internet, to get cellular service? – [Nick] No.

– [Ben] Or is it still encapsulated? – [Nick] No, it is, so yeah, so the Light Phone 1 was designed to be a second
phone and tether off yours, but this one has a SIM card in it, can text, and call directly, so it's a fully-featured phone. – So essentially the point of this device is to be something where if
you feel like you're addicted to your typical cell phone, you can't stop browsing
Instagram, whatever, you can use this as a
communication device? – Right.

– I think there's some
appeal to that today. I mean Apple, Android, they've both rolled out a
bunch of software updates to show you how you're using your phone. You can even put limits
on how much time you use. I guess if you really lack self-control, you just physically remove
yourself from the phone. I really like the plastic, I just don't– – Yeah, that's a really nice throwback. I don't know why…

I mean I guess just, I don't know why (chuckles) they stopped making Soft
Touch plastic phones. – How does the screen look outdoors? Because that's one
issue with E-ink, right, is can you get enough contrast ratio. – [Nick] Yeah, I mean it's
looked great outdoors to me. I mean it's arguably better than the… My smartphone has a glare on it, but with the matte screen
it looks pretty good. – [Ben] I think the idea of this phone is really interesting because
we love these things so much and now everyone pretty much agrees that we love 'em a little too much. But personally, I don't know
if I could live with this. But I do think we're
seeing a social movement, I mean Apple has admitted it, Google has admitted it with
these screen time apps, that think society is
waking up to the fact that we're getting more
addicted to these devices and so there is a
movement to try to retain what got us hooked on these
things in the first place, which was communication at all times without all of the junk.

I just don't know if that
movement is too early for something like this to succeed. (ethereal music) – [Nick] One of the most
immediately striking things about the Light Phone 2
is obviously the design. It's really nice and
minimalist and cohesive. The black and white of the E-ink really meshes nice with
this whole grey look. It's got this great Soft
Touch plastic on the back which is something that you don't find in a lot of phones anymore. The weight and heft of it is really nice; it feels like a device that
was really well considered. And it works, which is always good in a phone. You can use it to send
messages and make phone calls. The texts go through, the call quality is pretty good and it works on the major carriers. While the Light Phone 2 is
definitely super appealing both in an abstract sense and when you have it in your hands, there are a lot of gripes
I have about using it which is a weird thing to get into because those are also
sort of the point, right.

For instance, the user interface is… The Light Phone doesn't do a lot, so it's user interface
can be pretty simple, but it's also pretty abstract
to find your way around. When you actually go to type
text messages for example, the keyboard, which
always comes up landscape, so you have to twist
the phone to the side, is extremely small, (chuckles) it's a small phone, which makes typing on it difficult, which is then again compounded by the fact that since it's an E-ink screen when you make typos, and you will, and then you erase them, there's some strange artifacting. It's not as seamless as when you're typing on any smartphone from
the past five years. But you can't quite hold that against it, because that's also the point. There's this little bit
of a weird situation here where every time that I want to knock the Light Phone 2 for introducing more friction
to the use experience, it's like that's also the point, so it's a little bit weird to engage with.

The other main thing we have to talk about when we talk about the Light Phone 2 is what it doesn't do. Not what it doesn't do on purpose, but what it is suppose
to do but doesn't do yet. While for now the Light Phone 2 only supports calling and text messaging as its means of communication, there's a lot of stuff
built in here for more: You'll notice the Light
Phone 2 has a headphone jack. Eventually there's supposed
to be music playback features with a interesting little
bit of a dividing line of, it will allow you to play
music that you already have, but the creators have said they're not gonna include
music discovering stuff. The Light Phone 2 also has
Bluetooth and WiFi built-in, which again it doesn't really use for any of its current slate of features, but that lays the groundwork
for a future feature where this phone could act
as a WiFi hotspot, right.

So instead of trying to
do things directly on it, you could use it to connect
another device to the internet. I think it says a lot
about the state of phones, the state of technology, the state of internet in
general that this exists, and it's a good thing! There's nothing I would like more then to have devices that
have a built-in interest in keeping me from using
them literally all the time. But when we're looking at this, the Light Phone 2, as it exists right now, you do have to ask yourself, could I use it for me? No. And I hope that some point in the future there will be a device like this, but Light Phone something else, that either shares the
same priorities that I do, or has enough options for personalization that I think I can.

I do think that the Light
Phone could be a good fit for a lot of people, but those people are going to have to be an extremely good fit for the Light Phone. This is a device that is
appealing to a very big need, but it is serving a very
small target market right now. And if you're in that, that's terrific, if you're not, I would caution you against trying to squeeze
yourself into it too hard because you might regret it..

Tips And Tricks To Keep You Technologically Savvy

With new technology comes the opportunity and necessity to learn new skills. An iPhone can make your life much easier and a little more fun, but only if you know how to use it. Below are some tips and advice compiled to help you become the master of your iPhone.

If you use your iPhone for a limited number of your favorite apps, consider rearranging your icons to make accessing them much quicker. By moving your most-used apps to the first home screen, you will save a lot of time. This ensures that you can quickly and easily find the information that you need.

You should learn how to use your iphone to get directions to anywhere that you want to go. All you need is the map’s application, and you can choose your destination and starting point to get the directions that you need. It is very easy and is almost always right.

Save the battery life on your Iphone by turning off Notifications and Location Services until you need to use them. Your Iphone will automatically reach out and update these functions regularly and use battery power in the process. Be aware of the power your Iphone is using, and you will have it when you need it.

When you are in the Safari section on your iPhone, toggle between different pages that you visit. You can open up to eight pages that will each come in very clear on your phone. This function is very beneficial if you have multiple things to do and do not want to lose the initial page that you were on.

If you are using a Bluetooth device with your iPhone, turn it off unless you are using it. You will have to go into the settings on your phone to do this. A Bluetooth connection that is constantly on can drain your battery fast, and it might leave you stuck without a useful device if you do not happen to be near a charger when your battery dies.

Organize your applications in the order that you would like them to appear. Some applications you will use more often than others, so to make your phone work for you, drag the icons around to suit your needs. The more time you take now to get it organized, the even greater amount of time you will save in the long run.

Never download applications that are not intended specifically for the iphone. If you do, you are risking your phone’s stability and usability. Other applications may carry viruses. Only use applications that have been specifically approved for the iphone to ensure that your phone is able to operate at its maximum efficiency.

Do you use the Map app on your iPhone to get directions? Make sure you save your home address to your bookmark. You will not have to type this address again: access your bookmarks and you will get directions to go home within a few seconds. Save the places you visit often in your bookmarks so you do not have to remember addresses.

If you are always missing the best photos due to too many iPhone button pushes to get to the camera, get used to accessing the camera via the iPhone’s lock screen. Simply slide your finger up on the camera icon and your photo application will immediately open. No more five button pushes and wasted seconds!

Do you need to sync information with your iPhone and your Mac computer? There is no option allowing you to sync the information you save on the note app, but you should be able to sync your contact list. Add the information you want to save on your computer to the note fields of your contacts.

Before putting your iPhone to sleep, press the home button. This ensures that all apps are turned off, and it saves you battery life in the process. If you simply put the phone to sleep without pressing home, you may have some apps running in the background and reduce your battery life.

Find your iPhone if you lose it. There is an application that you can use in order to help you locate a lost phone. First, be sure to get the app called “Find My iPhone.” You can then find your phone on a little map on any computer and other devices. Then you can prompt your phone to show a message or ring loudly. You can even lock your content if you cannot find your phone.

Would you like an easy way to take a picture of your phone’s current screen? Try this! Press the home and sleep buttons at the same time, and wait for the sound of a camera clicking. Then, head over to your saved photos. You should see an image of your screen in the folder.

If you are using your iPhone and want to save a copy of a page you are looking at, it is easy to take a screen shot. Just press the sleep/wake button at the same time as you press the home button. The screen will flash white and you will hear a sound that is similar to a camera shutter. That is all there is to it!

You can use an application on the iphone that shows you your pace during your run workouts. You can keep track of your pace with this application and determine if you are making any real progress or not. Try this application out and let it push you to get the most out of your workouts.

Tap and hold any one icon on your iPhone screen, and you will begin to see them dance. You can then move them around, group them into folders or even delete those that you do not want. This is a simple way to keep your screens organized and your apps ready to use.

As it was stated in the introduction of this article, owning an iPhone can change your daily life for the better once you know how to use it to its fullest possibilities. Use the advice and tips in the article above to get the most out of your iPhone.

Personalize Your IPhone With These Tips

Iphones are one of the hottest tech products to own these days. If you own one, you may not be getting everything from it that you can. Check out these tips to learn more about your device. You may be pleasantly surprised at everything you can do with your iphone and a bit of knowledge.

Control your iPhone music without going to your music app by simply sliding your app bar once to the right. There you’ll be treated to a mini music control system that includes play and pause, next and previous buttons. You can even get quick access to whatever app is currently playing music in the same area.

Did you know that unlike many cell phones, you can assign a ringtone for each feature on your phone? Well, it is the truth! All you have to do is go to the settings, tap on the sounds feature and assign the tone. For contacts, tap on a contact and assign a ringtone to this specific entry!

Aviation enthusiasts will love this iPhone trick. First, you must make sure that Location Services are enabled in the phone’s Settings app. Next, instruct Siri to ask Wolfram which flights are overhead. Siri will then use data from the Wolfram Alpha search engine to provide you with detailed information about any nearby flight.

Many people have complained about iphone ringer volume issues. The reason for this is they are trying to use standard issue ringtones that are already available on their phone. While these are sufficient, if you want a better ringtone and better volume, you can handle this by purchasing ringtones from a store.

Certain iPhones can be set up to connect to Wi-Fi, although some setup is required. The benefits of the connectivity is obvious, because you can access the internet away from home with your iPhone. This a great advantage to business people because they can check their messages while they are away from their office.

Is your battery starting to run low, and you’re nowhere near a charger? You can prolong your phone’s battery by dimming the screen and turning off any wireless signals. This includes wifi, GPS, or Bluetooth. These can all drain a lot of battery and disabling them in a pinch can save you some battery life.

To make your favorite website a little faster and a whole lot easier, set it as your homepage. Although you can’t do this as smoothly as you can in Safari on the Mac, you can access your preferred page easily with just one extra tap. Add the page to your bookmark’s list, and then make sure it is at the top of the list. That way, you are only a couple of taps away from your favorite page.

Use your phone horizontally when you are inputting data. It is easy to forget, but the keys are much larger when the phone is horizontal, so it is so much easier to accurately input text. If you do not already have that capability on your phone, you can get the application from Safari.

A great tip for using your iphone is to put some of your favorite music on there and use it as an mp3 player. Instead of carrying around a phone and an mp3 player, you basically have the total package if you own an iphone because you can also listen to music on one.

If you are using a Bluetooth device with your iPhone, turn it off unless you are using it. You will have to go into the settings on your phone to do this. A Bluetooth connection that is constantly on can drain your battery fast, and it might leave you stuck without a useful device if you do not happen to be near a charger when your battery dies.

When setting up your email accounts, make sure you select two different names. If you use the same name for your two or more email accounts, your iPhone will not be able to save different settings. Besides, you should choose different names for your accounts to avoid confusion; this is a good way to keep your personal life apart from your professional one.

Now that you have learned some of the tips and tricks to working with an iphone, you can take your iphone experience to the next level. Taking the time to learn your phone will provide you with the satisfaction of getting your money’s worth. So, start applying these tips now!
