Even in 2017, 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.
To select the best Flip phones, we make a list of flip phones that weigh less than 4 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.
