Good phone for senior citizen
6 November 2018
I bought this phone for my grandfather, who was using a Nokia feature phone till now.
I wanted a phone with large display (at least 5.5"), good battery life, and simple UI. This phone delivers on all fronts.
Battery life is excellent with the 4Ah capacity.
RAM is only 1 GB, but that's okay. the user won't be doing that much multitasking :-).
Stock Android is simple and easy to learn for first-time users. I think a phone with a custom UI like Xiaomi's MIUI or any Oppo/Vivo phone would be difficult, because of the amount of options and features available.
There is a launcher in Play Store made specifically for senior citizen called "BIG Launcher". It is a paid app, but you can use the free trial to see if it works for you.
Comes with 8.1 Go edition. The Go edition is Android optimized for phones with less RAM. Nokia has a good reputation when it comes to software updates, so I expect this phone to get regular updates and security patches.
It has dual front-facing speakers. Once again, good for extra loudness.
Nowadays, Android has support for most major Indian languages, so that's also a plus.
I also considered the Moto E5 Plus, but decided this was good enough. Also, some reviews said the E5 Plus was a bit on the heavier side due to the 5Ah battery.
