This is an odd trend but I’ve seen it here and there. People with two phones. Avery Hartmans:
For many of us, it’s become something of an anxiety-inducing loop: open Instagram or Twitter or Reddit, get sucked in, realize how long we’ve been on said app, put the phone down, get a notification, repeat.
Maybe what we need is a phone with no apps.
The Light Phone 2, which debuted in September and costs $350, is the successor to Light’s original device from 2017. It’s sort of like the anti-smartphone, or maybe a Swiss Army knife: It’s a tool, rather than a tool for distraction. It does only a few things (calls, texts, alarms) and has zero apps — no email, no social media, no music or video streaming, nothing.
Or, maybe we need a little more discipline.
