For elderly people, using a normal mobile phone is quite a task in itself. Here we have chosen the best phones for the elderly.
Although a high resolution camera, faster performance, high resolution displays and multimedia are becoming key identifiers of a good mobile phone; these features are nothing more than a nuisance for some, especially elders.
With age our eyesight and hearing weaken. For old people, using a normal mobile phone is quite a task in itself. So rather than let the elderly struggle with cell phones, we have identified some mobile phones that are specifically designed for them.
The iBall Aasan might look like a funny little mobile phone but for senior people it is nothing short of a boon. Its extra large back-lit keys and large but simple display are very easy on the eye.
The design of this phone is such that it fits easily in the palm and does not cause any discomfort while holding. The shortcut keys are placed on the side for easy access and include buttons for torch and wireless FM radio.
The phone features a loudspeaker and the earpiece is tuned at a louder volume as compared to most other mobile phones. One of the remarkable features of this device is its SOS feature. This emergency feature allows the user to send a pre-recorded emergency message to five preset numbers at the touch of a button. After that the phone calls the numbers one after another until a call is answered, if not the phone repeats the loop three times.
It is priced at Rs 3,500.
This phone also features a flashlight and wireless FM. There are shortcut keys located on the sides that can be used to access FM and the torch, and to control the volume.
The design of this phone is quite similar to that of the iBall Aasan.
It is priced at Rs 1,500.
