      "Jitterbug Smart is an exceptional smartphone for seniors. I really wanted to get something easy to use as I'm not getting any younger. The layout is quite simple and I've had no problems sharing pictures. Most importantly, I can be connected to a Medical Alert Agent in case something happens. Luckily, I haven't had to use that feature but it makes me feel secure knowing that I can. This phone suited my needs perfectly!"

      "While this is modeled for seniors, this is a flip phone, not a smartphone. This phone is primarily for someone that wants no functionality but to be able to call for help when they start to die or they fall down."

      "Snapfon ezTWO is a limited smartphone and wouldn't call it the best option for seniors at all. It may be simple and easy for them to use, but so are other options and they will also have hearing aid companion functionalities while not being so remedial in other aspects."

      "I wanted to get a phone that my grandfather could use and this fits the bill. He is not the best with technology so it has been a struggle to find him a phone. THe Galazy J7 has a screen large enough so that he can see it but yet the phone is small enough that he will actually take it with him. The battery lasts a long time so he does not not have to worry about charging. And the settings allow us to make things on the screen larger so that he can actually read it. Only problem is that the phone is a little too sleek for him to really grip onto. He has dropped it once or twice, so get a good case."

      "This looks like a good quality phone. I am not sure, however, what makes it senior-friendly. The large display is the only obvious thing that I can see. So I am giving it a lower rating because, although I like the phone as is, it doesn't seems specifically geared to seniors."
