We could all benefit from a respite from the incessant distractions of smart technology; something our research has shown is even more crucial for our Gen Z and Millennial consumers.

When we chatted with them about their smartphone use, we quickly learned that many feel they are routinely distracted when socializing with their device, but also acknowledge that they didn't want to go completely phone-free.

At Heineken, we aspire to cultivate moments of authentic connection and make it easier for people to experience the joy of genuine togetherness.

In crafting The Boring Phone, we've stripped away the complexities of technology to help people truly connect over a beer, uninterrupted by the constant buzz and buzz.
