The flip phone is back with the Aspera F24, a budget 3G handset that prioritises accessibility over bleeding-edge technology.
Styled after mobile phones of the early 2000s, the F24 serves as a pure communications device rather than a portable computer. By trading 4G connectivity and virtual buttons for a clean and simple interface driven by a large physical keypad, it provides an accessible and affordable alternative for keeping in touch on the go.
- Flip-phone design is compact and convenient
- Second screen and emergency SOS button provide functionality even when the phone is closed
- Handy for quick note-taking and chronicling sudden events
- Not ideal for taking photos you want to share
- Should handle all your basic needs without a hitch
- Phone functionality has some limitations worth keeping in mind
- 900mAh is small for a phone battery, but should prove adequate for infrequent use

The Aspera F24 is a simple, fuss-free flip phone designed for folks who don't need the complexities of a modern smartphone.
