Sometimes the best features are the ones a product doesn't have. The Nokia 3310 Mobile Phone lacks nearly everything we expect from our pocket computers, including apps, a high-quality camera, 4G (or 3G) Internet connectivity, and a big bright screen. Instead, this modern incarnation of Nokia's iconic brick phone offers just enough to get you by — calls, SMS messaging, a 2-megapixel camera, an MP3 player with microSD expansion, and Snake in case you get bored. In return for the tradeoffs, you get month-long standby time, a headphone jack, an FM radio, and the peace of mind that you won't accidentally drop/break/misplace your delicate piece of future glass. Available in four pleasingly plasticky colors.
You've heard of the Steadicam, the original camera stabilization technology that revolutionized Hollywood. Now the same name is ready to revolutionize your videos with the Steadicam Volt. Turning you into a regular Kubrick, the Volt is a handheld smartphone and tablet stabilizer that weighs in at only one pound and is totally collapsible. It uses haptic feedback, which simulates the feeling of inertia to allow users to film with extreme precision. Users can shoot in Sport mode for fast movements, and Movie mode for more leeway when creating cinematic-like movements. Volt is Bluetooth enabled, syncs with any smartphone, and is equipped with rechargeable batteries that provide up to 8-hours of life on a full charge.

You're forgiven for thinking they'd gone out of business. The BlackBerry KeyOne Smartphone is actually a BlackBerry by name but a TCL by build. As the name suggests, its signature feature is a hardware keyboard that's touch-sensitive and hides a fingerprint sensor in the space bar. Otherwise, it's a fairly standard affair, with an aluminum and Gorilla Glass 4 body, 4.5-inch screen, 12-megapixel, Sony-sourced camera, Snapdragon 625 processor, and Android 7.1.

Lack of signal. Overcrowded towers. Dead battery. There are plenty of reasons why you might want to have a backup form of communication should your smartphone fail. The Linc Smartphone Walkie Talkie gives you one.
