BEAN IS CUTE, BEAN IS GOOD

I have nothing but good things to say about this device, which I have lovingly dubbed 'the bean'. The hardware feels surprisingly high quality for the device's, low price, and the colour is absolutely stunning in all different kinds of lighting. Bean runs perfectly, as expected, and to my surprise was running Android 11 out of the box, rather than the advertised Android 10. The haptic feedback when using the capacitive navigation buttons at the bottom bezel of the display is satisfying without being too much, and despite the size of its battery, I get surprisingly good life out of it. I use the combination of slide typing and voice to type so the small keyboard area doesn't act as an issue in my case, and this has actually become my preferred device for music as my wireless earbuds sound better on the bean than they do on any of my other devices. The programmable side key with its nice accent color is also a very functional and welcome addition, and the device is perfect for my job where it's smaller stature in my pocket makes it less likely to get wet when I'm making beverages and cleaning dishes. Very very glad I bought the bean, and I would recommend buying the bean if you think you would have a use for a smaller device, or even if you just want it because it's cute.

Fantastic phone, small but very usable. Love it!

I tend to only use a phone for talk and text, and prefer models that are smaller than my iPod Touch, preferably a good bit smaller. Preferably the size of my old LG enV2, if I'm being honest.

I used the Unihertz Atom for a month but found the keyboard too small even for my minimal uses. It was excellent as a way to deter excessive, or any, screen use, but even typing a word or two was frustrating. I switched to Jelly 2 about a month ago and the difference is amazing. I am absolutely in love with this little phone!

Even with my bad eyes and clumsy fingers, texting is very doable with no more errors than I make on my iPod Touch keyboard, especially with the Swiftkey keyboard app that supports swype typing. I wouldn't want to type long emails on it, but I have no problem texting or typing short emails. Discord, Facebook, Flickr and Chrome are all very functional and easy to use even on such a small screen. Despite the fact that I try to limit my phone use to talk and text, I find myself using it for other functions that I'd normally use over WIFI with my iPod Touch.

I appreciate that Jelly 2 has more RAM and storage than Atom, and that it supports a micro SD card in the second SIM slot. I'm using it with a Verizon SIM card that was activated in a Verizon phone and switched to the Jelly 2. So far, no problems with Verizon as my service provider. Although I liked the rubberized grip of Atom, I prefer the removable case that Jelly 2 has, and hope it will be available as a separate purchase and in different colors at some point.

I prefer the older Android app drawer style UI, but the Clean Launcher app decently provides that functionality. I'd also like it to have a larger battery, although I know that's a trade off with keeping the device size small. I was getting 3 days between charges with the Atom but can't seem to go more than 2 with Jelly 2, probably because I'm tempted to use it for more than just talk and text. Overnight battery drain is about 1% per hour on standby in battery saver mode. I don't like that you can't see the battery charge level in battery saver mode. The icon at the top doesn't display a visual level or percentage.

If you value a small footprint over screen or battery size, Jelly 2 can absolutely function as a main smart phone replacement. If you enjoy watching videos or playing games on your phone or need to do a lot of typing, it may not be the best choice. If you want a tiny, rugged phone to use as a temporary alternate to a larger or more fragile device, or something that will really discourage screen use, go with the Atom.

Do not mistake this for a kids' phone or a toy or a joke. This is a happy little phone.

I love the feel of this in my hand. I love the color. I love the memory stats. The battery hangs in there for phone setup and turning off and on and changing all the settings. Lowest it's been has been 49% after a day of playing with it and setting it up. It doesn't run hot. The cover they sent with it is just as cute as this phone. The screen resolution is so good you will do a double take and say Wow. You are thanking whomever created this for doing so. The keyboard is small but perfectly doable. You just type and with few errors. It comes with different sounds than the usual. What a nice surprise that was. I have been using i.Atype keyboard for years so that was the first install. It is a keyboard that allows you to adjust the height of the keyboard. So that works really well to make the keys a little larger without having to turn the phone a landscape view.

This phone is a real phone. You just use it like your regular phone only you are not lugging around a big bulky, or too tall and skinny phone. This fits the hand like a glove. One-handed stuffs works well. Icons look gorgeous on the screen.

It's a cool little happy phone and I'm very happy with it. I'm older so the SOS button is good. There is a red button on the side for setting that up, but right now the red button turns on this really bright LED light. It updated to from 10 to 11 without hiccup. I am using a 256 gb SD card.

Only things I wish were different. I have to try to figure out how not to share my sd card with the phone, and I wish that the screen saver that is on the phone was a better quality.

I'm still exploring but just wanted to come on and say don't worry with it. It works. Oh, it has reminder feature. You tell it to remind you to get up and take a walk, etc. I use Tello as my phone service. Calls are clear and crisp. No dropped calls so if you using Tello not to worry. Great service provider for a great phone. They use T-Mobile towers.

If you turn on the sound enhancement feature, the volume of this phone, and the clarity of the sound will leave you sockless. Makes a great little music player. And the equalizer works. I'm not a geek so can't get into all the endless little mechanical details. All I know is I am getting rid of great phone, and I bought this phone and have no regrets.

Tiny, powerful, minimalist phone w/hidden features!

This tiny phone packs a big punch! I purchased the Jelly 2 to try and reduce screen time and practice a more minimalist approach to smartphones. It has served that purpose very well so far! The phone is much quicker than my old LGV20, and the battery life is superb for such a small device. The extra thickness is noticeable but worth it for me personally for the extra battery life. This phone does everything a normal-sized smartphone would do, including running all my apps (music streaming, navigation, email, messages, banking, stock trading, calender, radar, etc.) in a much smaller package that is just more fun to use. I also love that in includes a headphone jack, IR blaster/remote, and even a fingerprint sensor. Can't ask for much more than that in a tiny 4G smartphone.

The Good:

Speed; snappy processing/navigation speeds, probably due to such a small screen and fewer pixels. But I'll take it! Absolutely blasts past my old LGV20, which was a flagship in 2016 and has a Snapdragon 820 chipset.

Camera; I'm going to include this as a pro for this device since I wasn't expecting much from a phone this size/price point. I was pleasantly surprised however, and most photos have turned out pretty decent. Good lighting helps. Whether close up or taking nature shots, the camera isn't "great", but it is certainly acceptable. (See pics for reference)

Fingerprint Reader; after registering the same finger twice, I get nearly 100% success using the fingerprint reader. That's a good thing, because it's my preferred method of unlocking the phone. I also like that it was kept on the back of the phone, rather than an in-screen reader.

Calling; I was worried about the mic being so far from my mouth while talking on the Jelly 2, but so far I haven't had to repeat myself. I am able to hear the other person, and they are able to hear me just fine. The earpiece speaker may be a bit quiet if you are in a noisy environment. I did notice "HD" on the screen during my last conversation, so apparently the phone is capable of HD voice calling as well. Has not dropped any calls yet.

Battery life; I put this phone to the test my first few days, purposely charging the phone to 100% and using it until it literally died in my hand. I can stream music, search the web, use navigation, send texts, and even make short phone calls for hours before the battery fully dies. I do wish the battery was removable so that it could be easily replaced once it begins to deteriorate. Hopefully Unihertz will offer a battery replacement at a decent price when this does inevitably happen. I would estimate I'm getting about 4-5 hours of screen-on time, with an overall battery life of about 12-14 hours with moderate to heavy use. Not bad for such a tiny phone!

The Bad:
Non-removable Battery; it pains me to see that the battery is non-removable. This means that when the battery eventually loses its ability to hold a charge, you will have to either send the phone back to Unihertz for a battery replacement, or just replace the phone entirely. Since the phone is not a uni-body design, and is at a lower price point, I can't understand why we are not given the option to remove the back and pop in a new battery ourselves. To me, this is a major downfall of the Jelly 2 over the long term.

Hidden features:

Speaker Boost - Go to Settings > Sound > Advanced > Sound Enhancement; now toggle on "BesLoudness" to get a noticeable increase in speaker volume.

Face Unlock - Go to Settings > Security > Face Unlock (enter your pin) > Enroll Face; now let the camera familiarize itself with your face, and you now have the Face Unlock feature on your tiny smartphone!

Increase Keyboard Size - Go to settings > System > Languages & Input > Virtual Keyboard > Gboard > Preferences > Under "Layout", Select "Keyboard Height" > Choose "Extra Tall"; you have now maximized the size of the on-screen keyboard to allow for easier typing.

Overall, the Jelly 2 is a great little phone. It's powerful/speedy, has a decent camera, good call quality, great battery life and an adequate display for its size. It will do everything your larger smartphone will do in a smaller package. I do worry about the build quality with the aforementioned jiggly plastic buttons on the side. I also wish it had removable battery. But these are small gripes compared to the overall device. I'm glad I purchased the Jelly 2, and it has even become my daily driver for now! I look forward to seeing what Unihertz puts out next. Would highly recommend the Jelly 2!

There are two types of people in the world: Those who completely understand the headline of this review, and those who do not. If you are the latter, move along. But if you have been searching without success for a 4G replacement for your long beloved compact 3G phone that had a real f-ing keyboard, this may be the phone for you. No, it doesn't have a real keyboard. (If that is your most important feature in a phone, check out the pocket Titan, which is also made by Unihertz...I found it way too heavy and large, realized that other features were more important, returned it, and am now in love with the Jelly 2.) But if what is most important to you is: phone calls, texting, and compact design, then this may be the best replacement you'll find. It is actually a bit smaller than my 3G LG Xpression (aka the best phone ever, RIP). The design and navigation of it reminds me quite a bit of that phone, although it is a full smartphone. I'm putting a very small data plan on this so I can use it for brief data usage when needed, but I can't imagine wanting to do much of that on such a small screen.
