There are basic apps for calling and texting and the iconic Snake game. The phone also supports FM radio, but do note that there is no internet browser.

The Heineken’s website suggests that it will be a limited edition phone with only 5,000 units being made. Moreover, it will not be sold but rather be available via giveaways.

In this modern age of social media, there should be some time taken away from the internet and the Boring Phone offers a solution for this. The iconic Snake game and also the unique design make the Boring Phone an interesting device.
