Productreview

Excellent for an elderly disabled friendI recently purchased an Opel mobile for my elderly friend with Parkinsons. She has found the large raised buttons are very easy to use despite her shakiness, and also really likes the simple but effective messaging and calling

Good for older person. My 87y.o. mum can't operate a smart phone and only wants a phone for calls. The buttons are easy for her to use. She loves the clear display of the day and date.
