If you cringe at the thought of spending up to almost $1,100 for a new iPhone — or even $600 or $700 for a respectable Android phone, you’d probably welcome an alternative. Recently, a company called Teracube came up with one. And their plan is already winning over converts on Kickstarter.
Their plan is simple. Teracube argues that most smartphones are expensive to purchase, expensive to repair, and only living an average of 2 to 3 years anyway. On top of that, all those dead phones — up to 350,000 per day — are adding to the major glut of e-waste facing our globe, a figure already topping 50 million tons a year.
Which brings us to the Teracube’s modest proposal to help out the planet and your wallet: get a Teracube Smartphone for $298.99. It comes with a four-year premium care warranty, so no matter what you do to break your phone during those four years, Teracube will send you another one for just $39. With four years guaranteed, Teracube keeps millions of discarded phones out of scrap heaps — and keeps a sound, functioning phone in your pocket at a minimal price.
Unless you’re a hardcore phone snob, the Teracube should have more than enough performance to keep the average user happy. It’s powered by a Mediatek P60 octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. There’s also a 6.2-inch Full HD display, a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for all your picture taking, and a 3400 mAh battery capable of keeping you up and running virtually all day.
The Teracube also comes unlocked, so you can easily add it to a service plan with GSM carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, or a host of other providers almost immediately.
Teracube’s gutsy swing at breaking the disposable smartphone game enticed Kickstarter contributors to kick in $125,000 toward its funding. You can join the movement now by picking up a Teracube phone with the four-year guarantee for $298.99, which is $50 off the regular retail price.
