Just how smart is your smartphone? It looks like the technology in your handset is about to get a whole lot smarter thanks to the introduction of the Figgers F1 smartphone, which is also known as “The Life Saver”. It is well known that distracted driving happens to be one of the leading causes of road accidents. Apart from that, text messaging will require visual, manual and cognitive attention from the driver, making it one of the most alarming distractions.
Statistics taken from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that for drivers 15-19 years old who are involved in fatal crashes, 15% of these distracted drivers were using cellphones. With the Figgers F1 smartphone, things are going to change for the better. After all, it comes with an integrated mechanism that will prevent one from texting and driving.
How does the Figgers F1 smartphone do so? Well, it is able to detect motion whenever the car is in motion over 10 miles per hour on the driver side of a USA vehicle, and will send the handset straight into a safe mode. In other words, distractions while driving will be a thing of the past, as the handset itself has been disabled from handling any incoming calls.
Other hardware specifications of the Figgers F1 include a 3,000mAh battery that delivers a long talk time, 3GB of RAM, dual SIM support, 4G LTE connectivity, an octa-core processor, 32GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot, a 16MP shooter behind and an 5MP camera in front.
The asking price for the Figgers F1 smartphone from Figgers Communication Inc stands at $399.99 a pop, unlocked, of course. If you are interested, the company does also offer cellular service alongside the Figgers F1 for a monthly fee of $50, and this will include unlimited 4G LTE Data, unlimited talk, and text on Figgers nationwide coverage network (music to our ears!) in addition to unlimited texting to more than 100+ countries, now how about that?
