Any Front End here that has bought a KaiOS device?

I bought the yellow banana phone to do little experiments with it. Curious to know if anybody else has played with it šŸ˜

Have you submitted any apps for KaiOS yet? How do you like the banana phone?

Yes, I actually have a photo of my game in the actual store right at the end of the other post that I wrote :) dev.to/fergarram/creating-a-game-f...

Honestly, I like other phones better in terms of design, but when I bought it I thought that it may be a better idea to buy the most popular one just in case I had to troubleshoot stuff.

Awesome!

I have a couple friends with the banana phone and they said the same thing. I think the target audience for that device was different, more for digital detoxes in markets with a ton of smartphones.

Yeah that makes sense! Because it was too expensive for a feature phone in my opinion. I mean, there are cheaper KaiOS options.

It's a 4G phone with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (v4.1). The screen resolution is 240x320 pixels and it is powered by a 1.1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 SoC, paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of inbuilt storage. Oh, and it has a 2-megapixel rear camera with LED flash.
