No Faffing About

Sounds pretty good

Let Google do it, and Just Talk. Powered by the Google Assistant, the Acorn NFA Phone is perfect if you’ve never got to grips with smartphones, or you want to live minimally to improve your digital wellness.

With a simple ‘Ok Google’ you can ask your assistant questions, tell it to do things, find answers and make plans. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help and its works with lots of your favourite apps, all with your voice.

A new type of Phone

the power of ‘less is more’

Acorn has always strived to bring the UK new & useful technology to improve people’s lives. Now we want to make a little bit of magic…

After years of talking to users about smartphones, the main thing we’ve learnt is that despite major advances, tech is still too complicated. This is a major barrier for all types of people to get the best from life, and can be particularly isolating for elderly people. Getting the best deals, the best information and staying in touch can often be out of reach.

So… our team wanted to make a super simple, yet powerful device that can help people get things done.  By harnessing the power of AI and powerful yet affordable ARM technology we aim to make a futuristic, yet modern tool.

The NFA is a smartphone that’s cut from a different cloth.  Its designed to streamline the usability of a smartphone, giving you the amazing core features, with a minimal & seamless experience.

We need your help! This is a new product category and in the spirit of Acorn’s homebrew community, we would love to crowdsource ideas and suggestions. Our team will review every message and you’ll help us to build a product that can help break down technological barriers and improve people’s lives. Thanks!
