A feature phone is a mobile phone which is priced at the mid-range in a wireless provider’s hardware lineup. It is intended for customers who want a moderately priced and multipurpose phone without the expense of a high-end smartphone. A feature phone has additional functions over and above a basic mobile phone or “dumb phone” which is only capable of voice calling and text messaging. However a feature phone may or may not be considered a smartphone, due to a lack of more advanced attributes.
