#1. The TTfone Lunar

Description

The TTfone Lunar, a basic flip phone for seniors, shines brightest with its SOS button, 16GB microSD card support, and 1.77-inch external display (for notifications) -- a facet it shares with many other clamshell-type models. Specs like a 0.3-megapixel camera and a dedicated charging stand are on board as well. The dark side of this moon consists of an 800mAh-only battery (tons of similar phones have 1000mAh in the tank) and a phone book restricted to up to 300 contacts only.






#2. The Wileyfox Storm

Description

In essence, the Wileyfox Storm appears to bring just about enough specs to weather the high-end storm, rocking a 1.5GHz eight-core CPU and a 20-megapixel Sony Exmor IMX220 camera (Full HD, 90fps Slow-mo video), while an 8-megapixel LED-flash camera sits right above its 5.5inch FHD screen. Also, this Cyanogen 12.1 model comes with dual SIM card slots, 4G LTE connectivity, and 32 gigs of expandable (up to 128GB) storage. Housing those features is a matte Sandstone Black shell.

81.5%

Description

Nokia's 2015 222 has the specs of a handset that barely passes the feature phone classification, such as the Opera Mini (IPv6) web browser, a 2.4-inch 65K-color LCD screen, and a 1100mAh battery promising a 1200-minute maximum talk time (696 standby period). It also features a lone 2-megapixel camera, a 32GB microSD card slot, as well as preloaded apps like GroupMe and Facebook.

#7. The Wileyfox Swift

Description

Released alongside the high-end Storm model, the budget-class Wileyfox Swift runs on Cyanogen 12.1, with a 64-bit quad-core CPU, a 2GB RAM, and an Adreno 306 GPU working together in the engine room. Among its key specs is a 13-megapixel camera with a BSI-sensor and a dual LED flash setup as well as a 5-inch HD display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Also on board are must-have (as of 2015) apps like Facebook and Twitter, backed by a 1200mAh battery that scores a 23-hour maximum talk time and up to 27 days on standby. Unlike a few other Nokia models, the 230 sticks to the classic Black-or-White finish.
