About this deal

While many of us have ditched the landline in favour of a mobile phone alone, some insist on keeping their house phone as well.

The colour LCD screen is easy to see in all light conditions. Numbers, letters and icons are displayed in large fonts. That’s very thoughtful and convenient especially for seniors who might forget to charge the phone. They simply place it on the cradle and the battery stays charged. These features are not must-have but can prove useful in some situations. They’ll only be in some mobile phones. So make sure the message and call alerts can be set to a loud volume that is easy to hear even from another room. d. Hardy

Other extra features include an MP3 player, an SD card slot (32GB max), a desk stand, extra sim slot (dual sim) and calculator. What we like about it: If all you’re after is a straightforward mobile phone to make and receive calls - and maybe take the odd photograph of the grandkids - then there is no shortage of them available. The LCD screen is sufficiently bright and uses large fonts to display numbers and letters. Even icons for ‘new message’ and battery are large and easy to read in any light. The buttons are large and labelled with big numbers and letters. The green button for calling and the red one for cutting calls are clearly visible.

As Chris Millington, MD of Doro UK, said: "Needs, opinions and tastes in mobile phones differ among older people as much as in younger target groups. It's great that we can now provide alternatives even for senior citizens who need functions like text messaging or listening to the radio, but still want an easy-to-use mobile phone."The descendants of the iPhone are good at multitasking, handling simple computing tasks and providing us media on the move (social and traditional). In exchange for that, they’re expensive, have a short battery and shelf life, and are relatively delicate. They’re also potentially problematic if you’re paying your employee’s bills. For communication, recommendations include WhatsApp (you can send instant text messages and make video/audio calls), Skype and Facebook. The ARTFONE C1-01 makes things as simple as possible. Only practical functions are included – messages, calling, settings, FM radio and others – and the interface is very easy to navigate. As long as you buy a good quality mobile phone, you probably won’t need to replace it any time soon unless it breaks or starts experiencing problems that affect communication and usage. Q: Where to buy a mobile phone for the elderly?

Here are the most important features to look for when buying a mobile phone for a senior. a. Ease of use A mobile phone can be a lifesaver in emergency situations. They can use it to call a family member or emergency services in case they fall or they are stranded somewhere. One of the best features of this mobile phone is the desktop charging cradle. There’s no need to fiddle around with a tiny cable trying to insert it into the charging port. A flashlight at the top comes in handy when it’s dark. It is bright enough to illuminate a distance of up to 10m.If you are looking for a simple affordable phone for a senior, this one by Binatone is a great choice. The phone is built for adventure with IP65 compliance, a reflective screen with Gorilla glass, a dedicated location sharing button (texting your location as a GPS text to an interested follower), and an SOS button.
