Can you recommend a cell phone brand or model for seniors who aren’t very familiar with them?
Jitterbug Smart 2 Jitterbug is a brand made by GreatCall intending to assist the elderly by providing an easy-to-use interface and emergency services easily accessible from their smartphone. Jitterbug Smart 2 offers all in one. Although a sizeable 5.5-inch display may make handling a little awkward for some, the larger screen makes icons and other features on the screen much easier to view. A simplistic menu is structured as a single list, allowing easy access to all of your essential information. With a low-cost monthly subscription, you gain access to a plethora of valuable medical and emergency services.
• GrandPad The GrandPad isn’t technically a phone for elders. Instead, it’s a handy 8-inch tablet preloaded with 11 simple apps connecting you to your relatives and friends. Its large size makes navigation simple, and the apps have clear, informative labelling. The GrandPad also comes with a convenient pen, so your loved ones should have no trouble navigating. Best not-so-smart cell phones for the elderly A smartphone is not for everyone, and not everyone needs one. While we like to promote smartphone technology, it may not be suitable for everyone. The GreatCall Lively Flip and the Nokia 6300 are two simple cell phones for seniors worth considering.
• Nokia 6300 4G Do you remember when the best phone on the market was a Nokia brick? They could withstand anything and keep working, which is what the 6300 4G aims to replicate. It revives the traditional look with a slightly updated screen, but you can still play Snake as you remember. Nokia’s 6300 4G should function on most GSM networks, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Mint Mobile, and Metro by T-Mobile. There’s also an app store to download and enjoy your favorite apps. To differentiate yourself, you can also pick between Light Charcoal and Powder White finishes.
• GreatCall Lively Flip Jitterbug manufactures more than simply smartphones; the company also makes classic cell phones for seniors under the GreatCall brand. The Lively Flip features large buttons and an easy-to-use UI. You don’t get anything more than a primary phone for making and receiving calls and texts for apparent reasons. However, for some, that’s all they need. The Great Call website has plans designed for seniors who are interested in this model.
Consider a Samsung for its Easy Mode While Samsung phones aren’t designed specifically for seniors, they have a feature for convenience-seeking users. This setting, Easy Mode, can be found on nearly every recent Samsung device – flagships, mid-range, and even inexpensive models. Accessible Mode also enlarges the icons, putting almost everything within easy reach.
