Flip Phones Come Back Stronger, 2020 Best Flip Phones

Flip phones are all the rage again. Why? Maybe it has something to do with the popularity of Samsung’s new Flip device; taking the concept of a phone with a flip open cover (screen on the top, buttons below) in savvy new directions. You may be on a tighter budget, but there is no denying the nostalgic appeal and hands-on-real buttons tactility of an authentic flip phone. If it’s functionality, simplicity, cost effectiveness you seek, maybe modern phones leave you scratching your head, or perhaps just a second phone you’re after, look no further than our list of the best flip phones on the market right now.

Easyfone Prime A1 3G Unlocked Senior Flip Phone

This flip phone is relatively inexpensive, and a great feature for senior buyers is its SOS function that enables you to contact five people at the touch of a button. Currently compatible with AT&T, Tracfone, MetroPCS, Cricket, and T-Mobile, the phone’s 2.4-inch display is clear and the illuminated buttons are large. Although it has a moderate memory, a card slot enables you to enlarge that, and it supports Bluetooth too, so you can connect with wireless headphones or your car’s stereo easily


The Smart in SMARTFLIP says it all. With Google apps such as YouTube, Google Maps, and Google Search, it’s a clever little phone, and even has Google Assist to enable full functionality via your voice. A 2MP camera takes good images, and with a long-lasting battery, and 4 GB of storage space (plus micro SD card slot) you’ll be content you’ve got it all to hand.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip


And now to the future. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a proper folding smartphone. 6.7-inch flexible glass display (so much stronger and clearer than plastic) and an almost invisible hinge that enables you flip the phone open and closed. But the main selling point of the Flip is the duality of the top and bottom half of the screen – photos and videos at the top, controls or comments at the bottom – or a full screen setup, depending on your preferences. And best of all, like all flip phones, you can pop it in your top pocket on your way out the door. Think of it as giving you the best of both worlds.

Nokia 2720 Flip Phone

Back with a fanfair, the Nokia 2720 flip phone features a sleek design and a large display, and runs a new operating system. Clearly pitching its retro looks to those keen on late 90’s nostalgia, Nokia are also wise to the fact that apps (Facebook, Maps, WhatsApp, YouTube) are also key selling points for even the most dewy eyed customers. Rugged and functional, you’re not buying this model for its multitasking capabilities, large memory or intuitive writing options, but the price reflects this, and it’s still the pick of the bunch in terms of looks

NUU F4L Flip Phone

A great and nicely priced unlocked phone (meaning you’re not tied to a pricey monthly contract). Compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, with a 2.0 MP camera, Bluetooth, and MP3 playability, it also has a very handy GPS function. You can read texts and basic info without having to open the device. 4 generous GBs come as standard, upgradeable via micro SD card to a whopping 64GB.

AT&T Z223 Prepaid Flip Phone

A trustworthy prepaid (or ‘pay as you go’) flip-phone with Bluetooth that enables you to link with your headphones, this AT&T compatible model features a speakerphone and a decent camera. The rounded design won’t be to everyone’s taste, but it’s a friendly and functional little device.

Tracfone Alcatel MyFlip 4G Prepaid Flip Phone

One of the best, most up to date flip phones on the market right now, the Tracfone Alcatel MyFlip features a 2.8-inch display (big for a non-smartphone), a quad-core processor and GPS. The battery (which you would expect to be good with a flip) provides a huge 16 days of standby time. The 2 MP camera also captures HD video, and due to evolved 4G tech, you can send heavy files (i.e., video) to friends without having to wait an age. All you could ask for before stepping up to a smartphone.

Kyocera DuraXE LTE

Put an X in the title and you think rugged, which is exactly what DuraXE and XV models are – waterproof, dustproof, shockproof; making this a fool proof (!) model for butterfingers without insurance. 9 hours talk time and generous 16-day standby time come as standard. If you opt for the V (Verizon) model, you get 16 GB of storage or the option of no camera at all.

LG Exalt LTE Flip Phone

Boasting a slim and minimal design that'll fit comfortably in your pocket, this modern flip phone has a big, bright display (3-inches is great for a flip). High-resolution photos and HD-quality video are standard, as is a huge 8 GB of internal storage and a Micro SD card slot, should you need more.
