    I'm a glutton for novelty things and when I first heard of The Brick, something drew me to it and my impulse buying ways got me - I bought one.....

    What is it?
    It's a full on dumbphone which also has some awesome Bluetooth functions and has a full sized & functional FM areal which can pick up FM signal without any additional wires (using headphones as an aereal for example).

    Features as a phone:
    1. Voice Calls
    2. SMS
    3. FM Radio
    4. Micro SD Slot
    5. Ful sized Simcard
    6. 1 Month battery life (3 month battery more expensive option also on sale!)
    7. Loudspeaker
    8. FM Radio
    9. Music player
    10. Snake! (Yes the classic Nokia game is back! :D

    Don't want to give up your awesome smartphone when out and about? The phone also features Bluetooth and can do all of the above but you can also use it as a Bluetooth accessory to your smartphone. Use the loudspeaker via Bluetooth and use it as a conferencing device or, play your music over Bluetooth on the Mono speaker.

    I've not paired it to my iPhone (yet) but, paired to my Moto G I am able to send SMS messages from The Brick and also has full access to my phone's contacts, call log and telephony functionality.

    As big as a babies arm.

    Do you need this? No.
    Will people look at you. Yes.
    Will Samsung Galaxy Note owners feel inadequate by its size? Yes.

    Anyone looking for a fun accessory to go with their smartphone should definitely consider The Brick.

    Any questions on it, please fire away! :D

    I LOL'd so hard at this. :D

    My dumb phone has a 3.2MP camera though. Not the built-in FM though, you still need the headphones, haha. But who likes those kids that play music out of their speakers anyway? :rolleyes:

    I can't see this one selling all that well personally.

    Agreed. I have no desire to own "The Brick."

    I owned the 'original' brick. Not particularly fond of reliving the late 80's/early 90's cell phones, but it is an awesome idea.

    Wow, it's been years since I've seen "the brick". Forgot how humongous that things was. :D

    While you're at it, you might want to grab one of those garage-opener styled pagers. :p

    Cute baby.
