Binatone Brick (Unlocked)

 

This retro-look mobile phone is silly, fun, and occasionally useful. It's a Bluetooth handset for your actual cell phone, but also works as a simple 2G GSM phone on AT&T and T-Mobile.

Eternal battery life. Radio and flashlight. Doubles as a Bluetooth headset

Rocky voice quality. Painful interface

It's not just a joke. The Binatone Brick may look like a retro gag, something you'd buy on ThinkGeek to make your techie friends laugh. But stick with me here: this $69 unlocked handset would make a fine home or car phone. The Brick works as a...

Binatone Brick

 

Those of us into our forties or more will remember mobile phones like this in fact some even came with a brief case for the required battery. Here this tongue in cheek offering can be used for real or as a Bluetooth offering, however used it will be a...

The first main difference is the weight 208grams. I can’t exactly remember what my first unit weights but it was a great deal more than that. 20x5x4cm without the dummy aerial that adds another 7cm to the first figure. The display is 3.7x2.8cm and in...

Binatone The Brick

 

The Brick. At the very least, we can't fault Binatone for being upfront in its marketing: this retro mobile phone is what it says it is on the tin. It's a giant lump of a ‘mobile' telephone inspired by the old Dynatacs and brief-case sized handsets of...

Binatone’s The Brick is a fun blast from the past and a reminder of just how far we’ve come that retro hipsters will love. But all the laughs to be had from doing the same Dom Joly impressions over and over again don’t outweigh the high cost - fifty...

Excellent phone. Can use any GSM sim

 

Excellent phone. Can use any GSM sim. Good battery capacity. Can use it as a powerbank to charge our smart phone. The battery of the phone is of 2000mAh, but it will charged my smartphone of 2600mAh when used it as a powerbank, but not used it for long...
