Turn Your Smartphone Into a Retro Phone

Smartphones are considered the epitome of modernization and the evolving technology that comes with it. Ever since the retro phones of the 80’s and the 90’s smartphones have revolutionized communication in this age if information.

But it’s obvious that some people liked retro phones a lot and are not ready to give them up just yet. But since retro phones are literally being phased out to give way to more modern communication equipment, there’s really no practical reason to go out of your way to buy a retro phone.

Fortunately, you can bring back the 80’s and 90’s to your modern day smartphone with a Retro handset accessory. These are readily available on Amazon and other shopping websites, as well as some physical stores.

It plugs into your phone’s 3.5mm headphone jack and you can use it to pick calls, adjust the in-call volume and even end calls. It’s a pity you won’t have the dramatic phone hang ups that were reminiscent of retro phones. But the rest of the retro phone experience is there for you.

It actually let’s you multi task with relative ease because the smartphone itself doesn’t have to be in the ear. If you use a huge tablet, this accessory is more convenient to pick and make calls than raising the huge tablet over your ears. It’s also claimed that this little piece of accessory helps to reduce radiation emitted by smartphones.

Retro handset accessories also have bigger and better speakers which means you get clearer audio compared to most smartphone speakers.  But even all these advantages don’t compare to the cosmetic value and experience of bringing the 80’s and 90’s retro phone to your modern smartphone.

The best thing about these Retro phone Smartphone accessories is that you can easily find them on Amazon. They range in different prices depending on qualities and extra features.
