IPhone and Android are in a fierce battle, John doe comes into the picture. Not a funny movie, just a simple cell phone makes its way to the European markets.
Designed by Dutch creative agency John Doe Amsterdam, John’s Phone comes unlocked in a plain vanilla design, nothing fancy. Frills like a camera, text messaging and wide range of ringtones are not there. a down-to-earth device.
Try to compare it to the sophisticated tech of IPhone or Android!
Rather, John’s Phone features are limited to calling receiving, large keys, volume control, locking capabilities, a hands-free earphone and a speed-dial function — which makes it a good fir for children. On the back of the device, meanwhile, is a flap containing an address book and a pen — features John Doe figures might appeal to older users.

With a standby time of more than three weeks, John’s Phone is a bit pricey, at EUR 79.95 for all colors except white, which is EUR 69.95.
