  1. I really like this phone, and not only for eldery, i’m currenly using one because i have big fingers, i just can’t stand those miniaturized gadgets, + yes i’m getting old, it’s getting harder to read on small screens. The little navigation button in the middle is too small though, i usually have to use a pen to be able to scroll through all the menus in the phone.
