Review of Lightphone2

2020/9/6/

I've been using the phone for a few days. Got some real quirks. Typing,  really hard. Better than an flip phone,  but its kinda slow,  and I cant edit without deleting the whole sentence.  Calling works. Some of the interface follows its own design language like there is no "homepage " which is weird. Battery life is about as good a a Kindle.  Its actually exactly like a kindle bad typing and all, but it just can make calls.
