I smell a gift for the grad comin' in hot! Giving an LBER KR999 classic thick brick cell phone to young whippersnappers is like giving them a piece of history to take with them into the future. It's a reminder of where we came from, and of how far we've come. They'll love the symbolism alone more than they'd love a Galaxy S8 or, like, a Tesla.

Even better, this thick brick isn't just for show; it's a functional cell phone, unlocked for Sim cards from most GSM carriers worldwide (but not AT&T). And check out that antenna. When it gets real crowded at Roskilde Festival this summer, guess whose phone is still gonna get perfect service for uploading vids of The XX calling his mama on the dial pad? This guy.

Being the robust slab that it is, the LBER KR99 has a s u p e r long battery life of about a month before recharging is needed. Thick brick thickness is 2.36", length is 10.9" and width 1.7". Guess how much it weighs. Guess.

A brickly 1.12 pounds.
