Binatone release retro Brick phone with 28 hours talk time

Technology may be advancing every day, but most of us with a new, modern smartphone often have to recharge our battery every day. If you are on the phone a lot with business, this can be frustrating. UK electronics company Binatone have showcased their new ‘The Brick’ phone which has 3 months of standby time and 28 hours of talktime before a recharge. Heck, it even comes with an integrated flashlight.

The talking point is the design. Binatone have designed the phone to look 20 years old. The tiny 1.8 inch TFT display has 128×160 resolution. No 3G either, just 2G GSM/GPRS. Fortunately there is bluetooth built in and the company have added a Micro USB port to connect peripherals such as a headset. It can also charge another device through the same port.

The Power Edition of the phone offers the 3 month standby/28 hour talk time – it ships with a 2000 mAh battery. The standard Brick phone has a 1,000 mAh battery for half the standby and talk time. The company are also offering an XXL brick battery which they claim will offer standby time close to 6 months, or talk time for over 2 days.

The phone will hit the UK in early October priced at £50, with the Power Edition costing £80. You can see more on the phone here.
