Give the gift of privacy this holiday season

You want to make a special gift this year to your loved ones? 

How about the gift of data privacy with a Murena phone!

We have a broad selection of phones available to meet everyone’s needs. Like the Murena GS290, our entry level phone, made in Germany. A great value for money to join the /e/ ecosystem.

The Murena GS290 boasts a large, gorgeous edge to edge screen, with a small notch to host the front camera for an optimum viewing experience. You will be able to capture great pictures with a 16 megapixel main camera. Its 4700-mAh battery is made to last through your long busy day and more. This deGoogled phone comes with a dual SIM tray to manage two different phone numbers, with the second slot that can be used for a memory card to expand your storage up to 256 GB.

Order before December 20th and be delivered in time for your holiday gifts!
