The Light Phone II Kim Bubello for TIME 

For those who think time spent staring at screens is doing more harm than good, the $350 Light Phone II provides a smartphone stripped down to its essentials. The iPhone 4 look-alike can only call, text and set an alarm­—no camera, email or social media, though features like a calculator and music playback are in development. “It’s been incredible to hear user feedback that people are feeling more calm and content ... because they weren’t scrolling through their smartphones,” says co-founder Joe ­Hollier. —Patrick Lucas Austin
