Agreed. I have an iPad and an Android smartphone, and I am thinking of dumping the smartphone for the dumbest of dumb phones, which can only make phone calls and send SMS - and only needs to be charged once a week. I already have one of those as a travel emergency phone; I may switch my main number to it.
That's what I have. Oh, but good luck finding a phone without a camera. I don't think they exist anymore.
