Senior Phones – Built Just for Your Grandparents
Are you always having to answer handphone related questions over and over again? Certainly anyone with grandparents or older parents have faced this situation. Thankfully, we have just the right devices that will help you ultimately solve this problem. These phones are known as “senior phones” which are ideal for any elderly person. Take a look at some of the features of the phones below!
A flip phone is usually the best type of phone for the seniors as it is less bulky compared to the typical Smartphone and fits right in the palm of your hand. It is also easier to be utilized as it has better reachability, so that your grandparents will be able to operate the phone without any difficulties. Generally, these types of phones are rather durable and would not get destroyed easily if any mishaps were to happen.
With a large 2.4-inch LCD display and big button keypad, the iNO CP88 Senior 3G flip phone is a fantastic choice for any senior. The numbers are also read out as the user types it on the keypad. It comes with relevant emergency features such as a speed dial as well as an SOS button that will release a sound similar to an ambulance siren. Additionally, a built-in torch light makes for a handy way of efficiently lighting up small or dark spaces. It also serves as an entertainment device where it is equipped with an audio MP3 player, MPEG4 player and video, and FM Radio. It has a storage space of 1GB and supports external SD cards too. Thus, it is great for storing many numbers so that your grandparents are able to keep in touch with their loved ones.
The phone comes in 3 colours which are black, gold, and red.
The no-hassle iNO Simple 3G phone is designed to be the ideal device for the senior crowd. On the surface, the plastic build of the phone looks sturdy and fits nicely in the hand. Albeit its small display of just 128×160, it serves the purpose as a basic phone for calling and receiving messages. Nonetheless, the unique point of the phone is that it accepts both 2G and 3G SIM cards. This feature is essential as 2G networks are being dismantled worldwide which are creating more blind spots for this network. Your loved ones do not have to worry about not having any connection with the 3G network even if the prepaid card is spoilt, expired or depleted.
Additional features of the device include the SOS emergency button, read-aloud incoming caller number, read-aloud current time, read-aloud keypad/text, menu short-cut key colour display and many more. Beyond its dual SIM cards slots, there are multi-language options which are English, Chinese, and Bahasa Melayu. This is extremely useful as majority of elderly Singaporeans speak Chinese. Weighing at just 144 grams, the device is small enough to fit in any front or rear pocket.

Clamshell design seems to be a popular design for senior citizens as it offers more surface area such as the 2.4 inch colour display and external 1.8 inch on the Y2K 3G EasyFlip. Another useful feature of the external display is that you can view and receive incoming calls without having to flip open the phone. Morever, the SOS one-touch button will activate a loud help siren while subsequently sending out an SMS, followed by dialing to an emergency contact (supports up to five recipients). The large keypad with super big buttons is luminous and comes with a human voice dialing tone when the buttons are pressed.
For entertainment purposes, your senior loved ones can enjoy features such as video recording and playback, FM Radio and MP3 player, and a 0.3MP camera. With all the added features to the device, it does not lose its focus as a senior-friendly phone.
