Easy to use mobile/smart phone

Postby Jivebunnie » Wed Feb 12, 2014 11:15 pm

Evening everyone - hope you are all safe & well-ish.

My husband bought me a smart phone for Christmas (I do need a new phone as mine is now randomly ringing people). I tried to use it but it wasn't sensitive enough for me, I couldn't open the phone by just tapping on the screen with my fingers or a stylus, I couldn't use it so he sent it back.

Can anyone recommend a decent, easy to use (ergonomically) brand of phone?

Sorry if this post is in the wrong place but I did try searching for an existing topic :yikes:

Have you had a look at Doro phones?? They are supposed to be pretty easy to use. There is a Smartphone in their range that might be worth looking at.

They aim them at the older generation as part of their marketing, but don't let that stop you having a looky.

Iphone 5S, pricey but I literally would struggle without mine it talk texts so you don't have to type, correctly sensitive to type when I can. And the shape is made so you can hold in hand easy

I use the galaxy note too ...find it great to use, and it's a bit bigger too so not as fiddly as smaller phones. Ogre had mine almost 2 years and still never set up the voice activation xxx

Thanks for replying. I would have been on sooner but I didn't get any posts saying I'd had a reply or an update. Unless of course, this site doesn't do that.............. :crazy:
