No, it's not a flip phone like the Z Flip or the new Razr...
I had thought these things had all been extinct, and even when I saw the release from Alcatel a few months back I still thought ... naww...
I do have some friends who have some older relatives that they just need the phone and they don't want a smartphone.
This might just fit that bill of an in between. And even if you just need to buy it without a plan it's only $75.
It's definitely not for me. I wasn't interested in really looking deeper into it.
It can make calls, it can load Youtube, slowly... can load a basic webpage, slowly... it was a wholly frustrating kind of interface, but I'm also so used to smartphones that I felt like it was such a step back in time.
