Remember the old flip phones? We’ll, they’re making a comeback.

Flip phones began to go by the wayside when smartphones, like the iPhone, were introduced in 2007. Let’s face it, smartphones have so many more features than the flips, like bluetooth & internet access. 

It seems the Gen Zers are ones most interested in the flip phone, and they’re buying them up. They say that reliance on smartphones can have a negative effect, and going with a simpler phone could help reduce stress and anxiety by eliminating easy access to social media.

Flip phones can be purchased new for between $20 and $50. Some models can cost up to $900.
