The Jitterbug Smart2 is specially designed with seniors in mind and is considered one of the most user-friendly smartphones on the market. Fans praise its simplicity with options for texting, photos, emailing, or the internet all listed on the home screen in large letters. A front-facing speaker has clear audio, while convenient ‘voice typing’ allows you to dictate commands.
Motorola Moto G6 Play
The Moto G6 is appealing for its large screen, good resolution, and decent battery life and speaker sound. Users praise the phone’s practical, functional features and the ability to run multiple apps at the same time.
Amazon Fire HD 10
Whether you already have a smartphone or you’re interested in a device with a bigger screen, a tablet may be best for you. The Amazon Fire performs well when playing widescreen movies and has generous internal storage for downloading and watching your favorite videos of the grandkids. Lessen the need for typing with the virtual assistant Alexa, who responds to questions or commands.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1
The lightweight design of the Tab A is perfect for traveling seniors who want to document their journey and adjustable text size makes it easy to catch up on their reading list on-the-go. Reliable battery life means you won’t have to rush back to a charger anytime soon. It also has great viewing angles, picture quality, and brightness.
Do your loved-ones champion the convenience of FaceTime? Then you may prefer an Apple device. The 9.7-inch retina iPad display offers great vividness and clarity for older adults, enhanced by assistive features such as color altering for visibility and the content read-out-loud option.
