The thing I miss the most about my smartphone is the design. Smart phones are often beautiful, sleek, and well built. I gave up an LG G4 when I started this process and downgraded to a Polaroid Link cell phone. It creaks when you press on the buttons.
This phone is temporary, only to prove that it is possible for me to not have mobile data, or communicate in emoji. I am saving up for the MP 01, from PUNKT. While time is important to me, design and fashion are also a big part of my life. I like to look and feel good, and to interact with things that look and feel good. The MP 01 will be an upgrade from my smartphone. With similar build quality to modern phones, and thoughtful design I believe it will be a seamless way to integrate communication into my day.

This is one of the first photographs I took, on my first cell phone. It was an orange LG Rumor 2.
