The NoPhone Zero is the latest smartphone-sized piece of plastic designed to help users combat technology addiction

The world's most technologically regressive phone has received its latest update: an even more minimal, smartphone-shaped piece of plastic, dubbed the NoPhone Zero. Priced at just $5, the phone boasts absolutely zero features. It has even stripped away the logo and button indentations of the classic NoPhone.

The NoPhone Zero is designed to mimic the sensation of a smartphone device in your hand, without any of an actual phone's distracting features (such as Wi-Fi, push notifications, Instagram, tweets, texts, emojis, or the ability to make phone calls) in lieu of forcing users to engage with the physical world around them.
