REVIEW NOTE: We were delighted to be given the opportunity to review this phone – what a joy to be able to clearly see the ‘keyboard’, we don’t consider ourselves elderly but have that problem with eyesight where everything looks smaller so easy to read text and display is a joy! We’ve all experienced that sinking feeling when you need to send a text or to answer the phone and by the time glasses are on and off, or the phone is held at arms length, the moment has gone! We also asked a 91 year old with hearing problems if it would make life easier and she was very enthusiastic because it looked so much easier than others she had seen and she liked the hearing aid compatibility – so much so that she has now ordered one! So highly recommended for this more senior age group without losing all the features needed (incidentally the phone works with most sim cards e.g. Vodaphone)
