Display power use is not much of an issue with basic phones because the display is off for almost all the time. Between charge times for classic phones with LCD displays, for example, in standby is typically measured in weeks.

So whether reflective LCD (which is front lit like E Ink), transmissive LCD, OLED or E Ink really doesn't matter. If for some strange reason one wanted a reflective non colour screen on a minimalist phone it would seem to me that ultra cheap (because they are widely used and been around for many decades) reflective LCD would be the obvious choice.
