My Review Of The NoPhone To Combat Smartphone Addiction

laughing is a great stress management techniqueThe following review is my light hearted approach to looking at the problem of being continually or continuously connected to the smart phone from a purely entertaining angle with a product that may help. 🙂 🙂

I want to remind you that being continuously connected to the digital world is not good for you. These days, most people are continuously connected to the internet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, leaving little time for them to be disconnected from the internet. This is not good for you.

I touch on the idea of unplugging yourself as a stress management technique, so this post ties in with that concept.

It is a good idea to unplug yourself from the digital world. If you are addicted to your smartphone, I want to introduce to you a solution – The NoPhone. This is a real product. I kid you not. 🙂 🙂

This is highly entertaining and is a good laugh. And that is a good thing for your well being. 🙂 🙂

And the NoPhone itself is a great way to combat smartphone addiction.

Here is what you will learn in this Review for the hilarious NoPhone product:

What is Nomophobia?

Nomophobia is the phobia of being out of mobile phone contact or cellular phone contact. The term itself came into being after the UK Post Office commissioned a survey back in 2010. It stands for “no-mobile-phone phobia”. The results of that survey discovered that almost 53% of mobile phone users in Britain get anxious when they “lose their mobile phone, run out of battery or credit or have no network coverage”.

In the USA, they reckon that a full 66 percent of all adults suffer from “nomophobia.” according to an article at psychologytoday.com.

The Guardian in August 2017 reported that “Researchers last week warned that nomophobia – a phobia of being without your smartphone – is affecting everyone”.

This is something that I think everyone in the modern world needs to look at.

And determine ways to manage this in a way that works for them.

Following are some videos about the NoPhone. They are highly entertaining. 🙂 🙂

Here’s The Next Step…

Now I want to turn it over to you:

Are you going to buy the NoPhone to help you combat your smartphone addiction?

I heard about a college lecturer who purchased 30 NoPhones so that when college students entered his lectures, the students would surrender their real smartphones in exchange for NoPhones during that classroom session. The college lecturer concerned has seen test scores increase and a better participation.

I have heard about people buying a NoPhone for a friend, putting the new NoPhone into the packaging for a real smartphone, giving the gift of the phone, and both parties having a real good laugh afterwards.

How many NoPhones are you going to buy?

Either way, let me know by leaving a comment below right now.

  1. This is pretty entertaining, I must say, it had me chuckling pretty good at times. Then, the more I thought about it, it had me sad that so many people are that attached to their phones. I enjoy being away from my phone, I enjoy going out doors any from technology. I wish more people could do that.
    I also work with youth in my area and I can see how addicted they can be to their smartphones. I may end up buying some and giving them the NoPhones at least during lesson time.

    1. David says:

      Hi Dan,

      Yes, I know what you mean. The dream of being always being connected to the online world sounds like a really good idea until the realisation that people expect you to reply instantly at all hours of the day and night to some query, that can really wait till later.

      I personally enjoy walking in local parklands with nature and I always, nearly always, put my mobile phone in silent mode for that walk, as it is part of “only me time” which I use to recharge myself.

      You should at least get one or two of these NoPhones so that you can show them to the youth in your area, after of course, explaining their main selling points. Or just simply point them to this post. 🙂 🙂

      Peace,
      David

  2. I loved this post. Too many people rely heavily on their phone for texting and what not. I am not one of them LOL. I keep my phone handy for incoming calls, but that is not very frequent either. Maybe I need a life, and just maybe things are fine. I don’t do a lot of texting, and I really don’t like spending enormous amounts of time on the phone either. You can go into a restaurant and it is kind of sad to see a couple sitting there having dinner, yet both on their phones. What is up with that?

      Hi Matts Mom,

      I came across this product and the story associated with it, and had a really good laugh. I decided to write the article because this NoPhone ties in really well with the concept of “unplugging” yourself from the online world really well, and for the pure entertaining aspect of it. Always good to have a laugh. The different generations use smartphones in different ways, with the younger generation using them more and more.

      Maybe restaurants should get a number of NoPhones, so that when people come in to eat there, they temporary exchange their real smartphones for a NoPhone so that they can enjoy the total experience of eating and socialising at the restaurant.

      Peace,
      David

  3. This is one of the most hilarious things I have ever read. A phone that doesn’t do anything to deal with the fear of not having a phone! XD
    I love the idea and will no doubt be sharing this with my friends!

    I have to give you kudoz, your review of this is very in depth and makes this “not-phone” very appealing!

      Hi Jacob,

      I nearly fell of my chair with laughter when someone pointed me to a video about this product. As it does tie in with the idea of “unplugging” from the online world as a way of helping health, I decided to write this article. I am loving the feedback I am getting for this product.

      Peace,
      David

    Hey David,

    I Thought it was a great review. When I first learned about the No Phone I didn’t realize how well it was doing. I thought the videos you shared on your site was very entertaining.

    I’m happy to say that I’m not addicted to my phone. When I’m with my family I don’t even think about my phone.

    Now, another way to look at the No Phone is for children who always wants the latest and greatest phone.

    I know people who have children that have great phones and working just find, but they get so stressed out because the new latest phone does something special. Then their old phone doesn’t hold value anymore because everybody will know that they don’t have the latest phone.

    They beg their parents to buy them the new phone or it is the end of the world.

    If my daughter did that with me, to her surprise, her next gift will be the no phone. I will give her options. She can go with no phone or she can accept the phone she has now, Lol.

    Great Review David.

      Hi Evelyn,

      Thank you for your feedback.

      When I first saw a video about the NoPhone, I nearly fell of my chair with laughter.

      On a serious note, a lot of people are “attached” to their phones a lot of the time and in my opinion, this is not good for people. People should be able to “unplug” themselves from their phones and do other things. They can check in later to view any “important” messages for them.

      You could tell your friends about the NoPhone and refer them to this post. At least one thing that you do not need to buy for the NoPhone is a protective case as it does quite well in drop tests. 🙂

      Peace,
      David

  5. Hi, David!
    Thanks for this great review! I didn’t know about this NoPhone, but now I am curious.
    You made me laugh, David, and that is great. We all need more laughter in our daily lives.

    I am happy that I am not addicted to my phone, and in fact, I don’t even have a smartphone, just a normal mobile phone. I don’t even want one, because I have a computer and tablet. If I need to check my email or do other stuff on the internet, I can use them.

    I love going for walk, and it always makes me feel better and less stressed.
    I love the idea about unplugging. I know that too many people always use their phones, but don’t connect with nature or people.
    This world is so beautiful, but sadly many people don’t see the beauty of nature and their surroundings.
    Why we always need to hide from the world? I am so glad I truly can enjoy my walks, connect with the Earth and myself.

    Thanks for this review, David!

      Hi Linda,

      Thanks for your comment. I am happy that that the article make you laugh. When I first heard about the NoPhone, I very nearly fell off my chair with laughter. As the NoPhone itself ties in with the concept of “unplugging” from the 24 hours a day online digital world in order to help with well being (reduce stress and reduce anxiety) I decided to write this article, with the “hint” that people “unplug” from the always on digital world.

      I am delighted that you are not addicted to a smartphone as you do not have one. I have a smartphone but I do not use it as a phone. I use it as a “hand-held” computer connected via WiFi when I need it to be connected to the digital world. I use my laptop for almost all of my computing needs. I use my smartphone for a few selected Apps, one of which is an App that my medical team suggest I use as required called Kardiamobile and another is an App that I use to record my meditation sessions. Today, that app let me know that I have done meditation every single day for 610 consecutive days in a row. Ah, happy days for sure. 🙂 🙂

      I use an old mobile phone for my core phone needs (making calls, receiving calls etc). I can leave it in my pocket. I can not do that with my smartphone. If I could, and the screen size was better, I think I would be using my smartphone as a mobile phone as well. 🙂

      Glad to hear that you enjoy walking. It is a brilliant stress management technique to help manage stress or to help manage anxiety. You can see my list of stress management techniques here and my walking stress management technique in particular here.

      Peace,
      David
