How to Decide on a Phone

Getting a new phone can be a tough decision to make, especially if you don't know much about the current cell phone market. Today's phones, much like today's computers, generally fall into two broad categories, Apple and Android. Both types are excellent and offer a variety of features (in fact they share many important features with each other) but also have their differences. 

Making a Decision

No matter which type of phone you decide on, you will be taking an important step to being better connected with the world around you. As a senior, it is important that you stay connected with your friends and family. Now both types of phones can cater to seniors and your more specific needs. That is not to say that you won't be using your phones for the same purposes as today's younger crowd, but you do have more specific requirements that should be first and foremost in your mind. 

Senior-Friendly Phones

Ease of access and legibility are key here. Many senior citizens have an issue with today's tiny buttons and keys and the small print of the modern phone's screens. But don't count out a modern phone just yet, as many can resize the type on the screen so you can read and type with ease. Modern phones are also amazing camera's and storage devices. If you want to take a picture, just get out your phone. 

Do your kids want to send you a picture of your new granddaughter? The picture is just a click away. Cell phones can even video chat, giving you face to face time with your family even if they are across the country. How much can a cellphone cost? It depends on the name brand of the cellphone and it's unique features. Some are only a few dollars, others are literally hundreds of dollars or more. 

So no matter your budget, there is a cell phone for you. In case you don't have one, it's easier than you think to buy one. You can either go online or you can purchase one in person at your local appliance store, whichever is easier or more practical. But one thing is certain: the cellphone is nothing short of amazing. Why not purchase yours today?
