Verizon Cell Phones for Seniors
The range of phones and tablets available on Verizon’s website is extremely wide. To help you wade through the options, here are my favorites for older adults.
Motorola Moto G Stylus
Be ready to watch and hear your favorite shows and movies in their full glory, as this phone comes with a 6.4” HD display and dual stereo speakers. It also has a really cool 48 MP triple camera system, which allows you to take album-worthy photos of your friends, family, and pets. Its integrated stylus is perfect for those who prefer to write versus tap on the screen. Priced at $249.99, this device would pair really well with Verizon’s Play More Unlimited plan or the more affordable Verizon Start Unlimited.
Kyocera DuraXV Extreme
A lot of older adults prefer the ease of using phones with physical buttons; here is one that fits the bill. This phone’s large fonts, tactile keypad, and clear display give it superior readability. This is really useful, considering research suggests that one in three persons will have some form of vision-reducing eye disease by the age of 65. What I also love is that this hardy flip phone comes with drop protection. Priced at $240, this basic phone is suited for older adults who have limited data needs. I’d recommend using this phone with Verizon’s shared data plan that starts at $55 per month and offers 5GB 4G LTE data and carryover data along with unlimited talk and text.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite
Priced at $199, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is a helpful technology companion for older adults who don’t want to strain their eyes using a smaller device. With 32 GB of internal memory and a slim 8.7” design, this tablet is great for streaming entertainment content or catching up on the news. Because this tablet has a durable metal frame, you won’t have to worry about dropping it and causing damage to it. It comes pre-installed with a SIM card and Google Assistant for when you don’t want to use the touchscreen.
