  1. A great phone and great customer service!

    Posted by Mark on 31st May 2021

    First of all, Kazuto was really prompt at receiving the order, shipping it and telling me the security code once it arrived. The whole process took less than two weeks. The security code was an extra measure to prevent theft in transit. With this phone being so stylish and unusual, I can see why someone would want to steal it! :)

    Here are some quick pointers for anyone who is thinking of buying this phone:

    1. To use the physical keyboard for typing, make sure the input is set to the OpenWNN Japanese input keyboard (it also has the Latin alphabet). The virtual Google keyboard did not register with the physical buttons. Maybe another keyboard from the app store would've worked but I didn't try it.

    2: Using the stock Launcher3 works best for navigation with the physical keyboard as it highlights what you're currently selecting. However, you may want to use a different launcher for aesthetics and organisation. In this case, I found it more necessary to rely on the touch screen, as many of the shortcut buttons (e.g. Camera, Gallery, Open Browser) are not supported on different launchers. This can be somewhat remedied by installing a button remapping app, e.g. KeyMapper, to allow you to use these physical buttons however you want to.

    Onto the benefits of the phone itself. It's small, lightweight and fun to handle. The Android 7 OS is currently sufficient for the basic needs of the most common apps. Having a slow typing speed and small screen can be a little frustrating sometimes but it's still beneficial for people who don't want to be tempted to watch YouTube or browse the internet aimlessly. Although you can still do these things if necessary, you'll be more incentivised to focus on the real world. So I'd say this phone is perfect for those who want to reduce their screen time :)

    My only small detraction of the beautiful design is that there's no 3.5mm audio jack, although the phone does come with an adapter.

    Overall, a great blend of the smartphone's touch screen and the compact form and tactile pleasure of a flip phone. I wish that more hybrid phones like this would be made on the Japanese market, although it seems this trend may have died with this 2017 phone. A bit sad. :(

  2. Probably the best overall android flip phone for value.

    The Freetel Mode1 Retro Android is everything it is advertised. Practical, has good connectivity, memory space, screen size, is well built and the right size for portability and fitting in a pocket still. What an excellent product backed up with top level service that the Japanese have been renowned for. Would not hesitate to continue to buy further phones and related technology from Kyoex in the future. Cannot recommend them enough.

  3. Wonderful!

    I purchased this phone because I was looking for a flip- Android with a touch screen.
    I would compare this product to the Samsung Galaxy Folder, which sells for much more than this affordable price.
    The flip feature and smaller screen than a standard smartphone make it very convenient for those that want just productivity.
    It has an app store and functions just like any other Android device.
    Please be aware before purchasing:It is an unlocked phone- but it is not compatible with any services in the US.
    Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Folder, which I would use as a travel phone since it works anywhere around the world, this phone worked for me in Europe and the Middle East.
    There is only a rear camera, which means you can't take selfies or make video calls.
    Also, my charging portal gave me a lot of difficulties. After a month or two of use, each time I would have to charge the phone, I would need to play around with the charging cable for a couple of minutes to get it to charge. That caused extreme slow charging and also drained the battery, so it had a very short battery life span, which was extremely frustrating.
    All in all, if you are looking for a great smartphone yet want to preserve the look of a flip-phone, this is the phone for you!
    I am rating this five stars because I have checked the market for Android flip phones and found this to be GREAT even with the inconveniences I had.The price is also excellent! If there is any way that you can unlock it, so it works in the USA, I think many people will benefit from such a phone greatly.
