frank. is just another fucking phone? Well, at $180 better damn be good!

[UPDATE – September 5th : Indiegogo campaign launched] Full review: https://www.cryovex.com/2017/09/05/franks-indiegogo-campaign-went-live-today-lets-have-a-look/

frank. has been creating a bit of buzz in the world of Android smartphone. A few other sites have categorized this as being a knock-off from other Chinese brands base on the specs and the look and feel. However, that’s not just what a phone is. Sure, you have similar/exact same specs, but the point is the cost of the fucking damn phone right?

Gold Phone frank.Upon following up with Fahd at frank. we’ve got confirmation that it will be coming with Android Nougat. That from the start should appease quite a few people as earlier release stated Android 6.0. frank. will support bands 2,4,7 and 17 with the following carriers:

  • In the US, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon
  • In Canada, Rogers, Bell, Telus, Fido, Koodo, and Freedom.

People inquired about warranty and software support and this is where we’ve a bit more information for you. frank. is covered under a one-year warranty that covers everything except physical damage. For added insurance, you can purchase a one-year no-questions-asked warranty for $35.

We’ve heard the feedback and will be upgrading it to Android 7.0 Nougat. It will not be running a custom OS, we’ve considered doing a LineageOS community release. There are plans to do over the air updates.

Ottawa, Canada – August 15, 2017

An Ottawa-based, small tech startup has gone live with its first product, the frank. phone, which will be available for pre-order September 5 on Kickstarter.com.

As its name insinuates, the phone balances honest prices and good quality with a little bit of an attitude. Personified through a character, “Frank” is fed up with large tech companies and their overpriced tech products and he doesn’t censor himself.

“In North America, large and expensive brands dominate the consumer technology space,” says Mo, the 17-year-old inventor of the frank. phone. “A smartphone is a powerful tool and not being able to afford one can be extremely restrictive. We’re trying to change that.”

The phone, with 4GM RAM, 64GB storage, and a 1.5 GHz Octa Core processor, get the job done and only costs $180 USD. Frank Technologies prides itself on keeping costs down by cutting their profit margins and, as they put it, not behaving like “money-hungry a-holes.”  The phone is available for pre-order through a Kickstarter campaign which will help fund the first wave of mass production.

The company specializes in designing simple and powerful tech products for the average person, as well as sticking it to the “Big Guys” through their marketing style. Their mission is to start a North American movement away from large tech companies and ensure high-quality consumer technology is accessible for everyone.

To learn more about the movement, phone, or company, contact Fahd Alhattab at 613-323-4188, email [email protected], or visit the website at www.frankisaphone.com.
