Top 9 Best Flip Phones 2016



Even in 2016, manufacturers still make new flip phones and consumers still want them. They are mostly basic models (dumb phones), but a bunch of Android flip smartphones even appeared around 2015. Their convenience relies in their small size and the possibility to take or finish calls by opening or closing the flip cover. Rumor has it that flip phones were inspired by the Star Trek original series' Communicator.

Methodology
To select the best Flip phones, we make a list of flip phones that weigh less than four ounces and include an external display. Then, we keep only the best ones, according to their average review score. New phones are given a slight advantage over older models, as part of our unique ranking system.

Description:

Amazon.com:
Dressed with mostly low-tier specs, it seems quite unlikely for the BLU Diva Flex to steal the show. For its intro, it starts off with only 32MB of built-in memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

This flip phone carries on with only 24MB RAM and uses a 2.4-inch screen with a 240 x 320 display resolution. It also takes pictures with a VGA camera (yes, just VGA), coupled with an LED flash. For its encore, the Diva Flex houses a 600mAh battery, and is made available in gold, silver, gray, and black variants.
