"Senior" phone that is still a smartphone?

Needs to be easy to use, but also still able to load a few apps on, so not just a simple phone. Thanks.

what apps? android apps? apple apps?

We tried to teach mom iOS, but it was too late. Her ability to learn new techy things was GONE. She was pretty good on a computer and taught herself to use a digital camera and make ebay listings. But a few years later it was already too late to learn iOS.

Android, or some other os that's proprietary to that phone? No iPhones.

I have absolutely zero experience with them, but a quick search turns up these two options:

Jitterbug Smart 3

Samsung Galaxy (with "Easy Mode" enabled)

we got mom the jitterbug non-smart phone and pay WAY too much for it, but it's the only thing that mom can use effectively. I imagine their smart phone would be your best option. The non smart phone even has a 'dial tone'

A lot depends on your mom. My mother is 99 and uses her iPad Pro for everything. She has no smart phone but obviously she could if she wanted to.

I think most people on this forum are seniors. Don't most of us have iPhones? Personally, I think that an iPhone without a bunch of complicated apps is pretty darn easy to use, which was the source of its original appeal.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
