The 5 Best Smartphones For Seniors

by admin

Nokia 3310 3G

The Nokia 3310 3G is probably the best phone for seniors who hate smartphones. It’s simple, easy-to-use and has all the features needed to keep in touch with loved ones. The device supports calling, texting and includes a few social media apps (if you want to keep an eye on what the grandkids do for fun these days).

The battery life is long which means you won’t have to bother about frequent charging. The phone is durable, which makes it ideal for people with butter fingers syndrome. It has a simple but effective camera and packs 64GB of internal storage (that can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card) so you’ll never run out of space to store your photos.

GrandPad

One of the most senior-friendly devices on the market, GrandPad is marketed as both a smartphone and a tablet. That shouldn’t put you off. Its big 8-inch screen actually makes it easier for senior citizens to use, especially when confined with its simple interface. It supports email, voice and video calls. It also streams social media so you can see what  people are up to without needing your own account. It has a wireless charging dock so you don’t need to worry about keeping track of wires.

Jitterbug Flip

If you want simple, you want this. The Jitterbug Flip was actually made for senior citizens. Hence it’s large and easy-to-read interface, simple navigation and loud speakers so you don’t miss any calls. It’s also compatible with hearing aids – it has an M4/T4 rating. Another special feature of the Jitterbug Flip is its 5Star button. This button acts as a one-touch emergency response feature so if you’re in trouble, you can get help straight away.

iPhone 8 Plus

Not all seniors are technologically illiterate. If you’re on the tech-savvy side, consider the iPhone 8 Plus. It’s one of the larger iPhone offerings and includes senior-friendly features such as a solid 5.5-inch HD display screen, adjustable display and text-size, and in-built FaceTime so you can make video calls without downloading third party apps. You can also use Siri to place calls and keep track of your tasks.

Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

With a massive 6.2 inch display and adjustable text size, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is a great option for seniors who have trouble reading small text. It is secure but easy to unlock. You don’t need to remember your passcode. The phone’s fingerprint scanner, iris scanner and facial recognition feature means it will automatically open for you (but only you). Like the iPhone, it comes equipped with S Voice, a virtual assistant that can help you with reminders and calls.

People who think smartphones are for the tech savvy young aren’t thinking. As you can see, there are plenty of options out there for senior citizens, whether they’re familiar with technology or not. Find the best phone for your budget and lifestyle by researching more models. Make a list of the features you want and keep an eye out for special deals. Compare at least 3-4 phones before you make a final decision. Good luck!
