I got so sick of the ink face palms, that I bit the bullet and got a monochrome Brother printer / scanner for $60.00. In a one sentence review: Where have you been all my life It's so smooth and quite that it makes my old ink printer seem like the appliances you see from the 1920's and 1930's that resemble medieval torture devices. lol Like with any printer, I set the the print quality to the lowest level that still produced decent quality text. BTW- I still use my old trusty flip phone. They're laughably cheap to buy second hand, very compact, and virtually indestructible.
