Some good senior phones for 2015 include the Emporia Euphonia, Maxcom MM461, Samsung Jitterbug 5 and Snapfon ezTWO3G, according to PhoneArena.com. These phones lack the sophisticated features of modern smartphones, but they offer more accessible interfaces and useful features for less tech-savvy seniors.
Austrian designer Euphonia specializes in cell phones for seniors, and the Euphonia is one of the company’s top-rated models. The phone offers a bright screen for easy viewing and large buttons to make dialing convenient. The Euphonia also features a side button for emergency calls and a 2-megapixel camera.
Maxcom’s MM461 is another senior-friendly phone, offering a large, bright screen; a simple interface; large buttons and a loud internal speaker. The phone also features an LED flashlight and presents phone text in a clear, easy-to-read font.
Samsung’s Jitterbug 5 is a flip phone that boasts huge buttons, an amplified speaker, a simple menu system and large fonts. The phone also offers a dedicated emergency button that connects users to the 5star service in case of medical emergency.
Snapfon’s ezTWO3G is one of the cheapest senior cell phones available, but it offers a bevy of useful features, including a flashlight, emergency button and built-in camera. Like other senior-friendly phones, the ezTWO3G also features large buttons and an interface with large letters for easy viewing.
