    Christmas is upon us and I want to get my mom a nice phone as her current one is starting to become faulty. Only problem is, I don't know very much about the cellphone community, and since there are a lot of different cell phones out there I'm having difficulties picking one. Basically what I'm looking for is a regular phone(not smartphone) that's of high quality and can withstand a beating. I've heard good things about Nokia and I have a Nokia phone myself which has withstood a lot, but their current phones don't seem impressive. Does anyone here know what the best robust cell phone is? Price range is <150$.

    :)

    I was going to suggest a Moto G Gen 3 before I realized that you wanted a dumbphone... If cost is your concern, though, you're literally going to have a better time finding a cheap smartphone than a cheap flip-phone

    You are really limiting yourself by saying no smartphone.

    Smartphone is fine if it does fit the requirements mentioned. Is there really a robust smartphone out there for just 150$?

    You might be able to get an old Casio G-Zone. Who is your carrier?

    Ah. Síminn. Also Icelandic.

    I found an auction for 2 of the ones linked in the other post in good condition at a great price. Both unlocked. I thinking of going for it. Any objections? :creep:

    EDIT: Too late. Bought them. May as well replace my dads phone as well. Thanks for your suggestions.
