If someone asked you to pay $1,000 for a TV that would be obsolete in two years, you probably wouldn’t take the deal. But when the same offer is made for a smartphone, many people readily accept. As a result, we waste millions of dollars and create millions of tons of electronic waste every year. The Teracube Smartphone aims to stem the flow. This super-reliable device is built to last, with impressive specs and a four-year warranty. Better still, you can get it now for just $299 at the PopSci Shop.
Teracube might look like just another throwaway smartphone, but it’s actually a game-changer. The device has been specifically designed to remain fully functional for at least four years. It’s easy to see how it raised $125k on Kickstarter and featured in the “Best of CES” gallery this year.
The phone has a 6.2″ full HD+ IPS display and a 5MP selfie camera protected by Gorilla Glass. On the back, you will find a 12MP shooter that takes excellent photos. Teracube runs Android on a powerful octa-core MediaTek processor and 6GB of RAM, offering impressive performance.
The device also offers genuine all-day battery life, a headphone jack, and dual SIM slots. It arrives unlocked, so you can use any GSM carrier.
Normally priced at $349, this long-lasting device is now only $299.
