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

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...

Are there more than 5stars?


Received the phone in 36 hours great job by Amazon. Nice quality. Loud ring tones and radio. Retro looks. Yet to test in remote areas for signal reception capabilities. Huge battery. You can not get anything like this in 1800Rs.
