Do you ever miss your old flip phone circa 2003? Ten years ago, the best cellphones on the market folded into compact, pocket-sized little clamshells. Now, it's all about screen size and processor power. But flip phones could be poised to make a comeback.
The LG Gentle is equipped with a 3.2-inch touch screen, LTE and Wi-Fi compatibility and a whopping 4 gigabytes of internal storage. If you wanted a tad bit more storage, you have the option of inserting a memory card, which practically no other flip phone has.
The Gentle is the world's first "smart" flip phone, and it's actually quite impressive.
"It runs the Android Lollipop operating system, so it has the ability to download apps, browse the Web and do anything a typical smartphone can do," Anthony Burkhardt, an LG Product Specialist, said Thursday.
