Our thirst for media consumption, be it video or photo, has influenced displays. Now, the more advanced a smartphone it, the bigger display it tends to have. In the majority of time, that’s all well and good but it can become problematic when you’re out and about. Pockets weren’t meant to hold 6.2-inch phones so they aren’t of much help. Before you start choosing clothes that can store all your gadgets, meet Jelly. It’s the smallest 4G smartphone in the world, equipped with – wait for it – Android Nougat #mobilemagic
Jelly won’t be your first choice to watch vlogs, play RPGs or edit photos in mobile apps, that’s true. The 2.45-inch screen doesn’t recommend it for the job. But this Unihertz phone has no problem browsing and helping you chat on Facebook’s Messenger or other social media messaging platform. Despite being incredibly small – it can be stored in your coin pocket -, the device can work as a secondary phone. It runs Android Nougat, comes with 2GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of internal storage and has an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie shooter.
Jelly also provides dual SIM support and has a 950 mAh battery that lasts up to 3 days working time. The small size of the device makes a difference when you’re running, too. Worn on an armband, Jelly is almost weightless. It comes with all of the perks of a music player while it also helps you take calls without pulling you down.
As a secondary phone, Jelly is not a bad option at all. After all, that’s the phone you use only for calls, texts and e-mail, tasks this handset can accomplish easily. Add to that the extreme portability and small price and you’ll forget about the less-than-ideal specs. Oh, I forgot to tell you: Jelly can be purchased for just $79! Unihertz is crowdfunding the product on Kickstarter so head over there to make a pledge and pre-order one, if it sounds like a good idea.
