Top 5 Dumbphones

Top 5 Dumbphones

All the rage at the moment seems to be about smartphones.  Whether it is the Iphone 5 or Samsung’s recently released Galaxy S4.  The only problem is, not everybody wants – or needs – a phone that attempts to replace all of the other technolgy in their lives; in fact, some people might just like a basic phone that just sends text messages and makes phone calls.  These still do exist, and someone was witty enough to coin the term “Dumbphones” for them.



Okay, so none of the dumbphones on our list are as basic as the one in the picture above, but they aren’t all that far off.  These phones are basic, they are cheap as chips, and they are perfect for anyone who is not fussed about the fancy bells and whistles in today’s smartphones.  Let’s take a look at our top 5 dumbphones.
