Smartphones are reigning the world, no doubt about that, but there are still many folks out there who don’t need or want an advanced and complicate piece of equipment. All they need their phone to do is make calls and send text and maybe occasionally snap a quick photo. Why should they be forced to pay large portion of their hard earned money for sophisticated features they will probably never use? With such users in mind AT&T launched the LG A380 – a simple cheap flip phone with basic features. You can grab the LG A380 from AT&T store for $19.99 with a new two-year contract or $189.99 outright.
