The Light Phone II is a small, simple cell phone. It is intentionally designed to be used as little as possible. Its core functionality is placing calls and sending text messages. It also includes a basic alarm.
Toolbox & Settings
The "Toolbox" is the menu of various tools on your Light Phone II. It has a dedicated button on the right side of the phone, it is the larger center button. You can click this button from any screen to easily navigate to another aspect of the phone. Customize your Toolbox Menu, adding or removing tools, from the Dashboard.
It uses a black & white E-ink screen, unique for a cell phone. This screen does not emit blue light when displaying information, and it can be easily read in direct sunlight, unlike any smartphone. The E-ink screen requires "refreshes" between different pages to clear the screen. These refreshes flash the screen between black and white, removing the previous information. Sometimes you can notice subtle ghosting of the previous screen. We've come to love the E-ink screen and its unique properties.
There is a screen light for being able to view the phone at night.
Account & Dashboard
The Light Phone II is managed through our Dashboard website. It allows you to import contacts and add or remove various additional tools that we will be rolling out. Your Light account is how you login to the Dashboard. You may manage multiple phones from one Light account.
All future tools that we will be rolling out are completely optional of course. They are added wireless to the device itself from the Dashboard website. We're working hard to release our first batch of tools, but at the moment we do not have any optional tools available. We're always open to feedback regarding what future tools you would like to see us offer for the Light Phone II.
