According to Senior Lifestyle, what is the best mobile phone for senior citizens?
As you may know, when buying a new cell phone, the options can be endless. Senior Living narrowed their testing on different phones to find the best ones for the elderly and selected 25 different phones for the test. In the end, nine phones were chosen as the best available cell phones for the elderly.
This selection was based on more than 300 hours of investigation, speaking to the customer service and online purchasing. Every single phone was tested hands-on. Senior Living took more than 30 criteria into account to rank each phone, including senior-friendly features, price, durability, battery life, ease of use, looks, sound quality, and provider perks. Of all these criteria, three of them were considered as the most critical metrics:
• Senior-Friendly Features
Every one of these nine selected phones is made sure to have the necessary features for the elderly and their lifestyle. For instance, Senior Living looked for phones with big buttons or icons, loud and adjustable speakers, bright screens, easy-to-hold design, and compatibility with hearing aids.
• No Long-Term Contracts
All the cell phone models and carriers chosen by Senior Living are made sure to have month-to-month services so that if you feel the need, you can cancel the service without any problems.
• Quality vs. Price
The range of prices in Senior Living’s list varies, but all prices are checked to surpass or match their quality. It includes both the slightly more expensive phones with higher-tech features and the ones that are more budget-friendly. This way, you can find a cell phone that suits both your needs and your wallet.
