The Boring Phone wants to help you get your life back

When I first heard of this, I couldn’t almost believe that in this ‘woke’ era of humanity, a company would create such a ‘bland’ Android smartphone that eliminates all the excesses that make humans act like slaves of their mobile devices.

One of the things about the phone that probably made it a nominee of the ‘Digital Wellness’ Phone Award is that there is no App Store on it. This keeps you from downloading more apps to the pre-installed ones.

It’s a literal “what you see is what you get” device – a simple Android handset, a 5.5-inch Xiaomi Mi A1. with a customised operating system. The preinstalled apps are:

  • A phone dialer
  • A messaging app
  • A camera
  • A map
  • Podcast Manager
  • Music Player
  • A tool to sync your contact and calendars
  • Gallery
  • Calculator
  • Voice Recorder

The Boring Phone is succeeding in achieving its goals to keep you from distractions, excessive screen time and excessive time spent on social media channels.
