By focusing on basic tasks like calling and texting, the Optus X Lite makes using your phone simple and stress-free.

Hearkening back to the simple, non-smartphone days of the early 2000s, the Optus X Lite eschews features like touchscreens and high-resolution cameras in favour of a basic menu interface and a physical keypad. This is a compelling proposition for folks exhausted by the complexities of modern smartphones as well as anyone looking for an affordable backup phone to keep for emergencies.


  • Compact candy-bar design and physical keypad channel the simplicity of early 21st-century mobile phones
  • Built-in FM radio, calendar and other apps provide extra functionality on top of basic calling and texting


  • VGA camera is handy for recording information for later reference
  • Low-resolution photos don't lend themselves well to sharing


  • Low-power hardware is sufficient for the basic tasks the Optus X Lite is designed for


  • Can deliver up to four hours of talk time or 160 hours on standby, according to Optus
