If you can make do with simple feature phone, you might consider the LG Xpression, which runs on the BREW Mobile software platform. It boasts a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 3-inch 240x400 pixel resolution touchscreen display for user input. It may look ordinary, but thanks to a wide range of connectivity features, it’s actually a pretty handy mobile phone.
With a 4-row QWERTY keyboard, it’s pretty useful for those who need a dependable messaging phone that isn’t so hard to use. Its keys are large and very easy to press, so typing out long e-mails or text messages is no problem at all. And when the use of a hardware keyboard isn’t necessary, there’s always the touchscreen display and the virtual keyboard.
As a BREW-powered handset, the Xpression won't have the nearly endless selection of apps found on iOS or Android, but it can run various types of third-party software such as games and messaging applications. This helps give it extra features that are not available through its default configuration. It may not have NFC, wireless charging, or any of the crazy new tech that comes standard in today’s high-end smartphones, but it’s still an excellent choice for those who just want a proper cellphone for near effortless communication.

I love this phone because it is a perfect non-smart, smart phone for a middle age person
This phone is worth every penny I paid for it. I bought it at retail - I wasn't up for upgrade until 8 more months. I text a lot and I needed a larger keyboard. I don't want my phone to be a PC, camera, GPS or anything else. However, it is nice to have those features if I need them but I don't want them all the time. I am not technically advanced at all so this phone is very easy to use. My nephews, nieces, cousins etc are always sending me texts and pictures so this phone is perfect. I also use the phone as my daily alarm clock. The battery lasts forever and I've not had any problems with the phone. I've had the phone over 90 days and am very happy with it. The camera isn't very good, but like I said before, I didn't buy it for a camera. :)Less
