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:
