The phone runs KaiOS and comes with the Google Assistant. We can call the assistant to ask about the weather, perform a search or mark or send a text message to a contact.
The Nokia 2720 Flip has an emergency call button (which also works as a Google Assistant button ) that when pressed will send an SMS and call five pre-configured contacts in the address book, one at a time, through the speaker until you connect to one of them. It also has ICE, which helps emergency services access important information, such as medical details of the phone owner.
