More seniors today are embracing newer technology. However, older adults need to choose the best smart phones suited for their ability and life style. Seniors have different needs that someone that is in their twenties. The first thing a mature adult would want in a smart phone is simple, easy to use intuitive navigation. The Apple iPhone has only one button, the home button. Everything else works off of a touch screen. Apps icons are color coded in order to ease identification. Making calls and sending texts can be done in 2 to 4 clicks. Someone that feels that there hand/eye coordination would prevent them from using a touch screen should consider a smart phone with a keyboard with keys that are slightly raised and equipped with ridges. The phone should allow the user to press down on the button and feel a spring-like feedback. A phone that is lightweight should also be important to a senior. A phone such as the Palm Pre Plus weighs under a pound, but still has plenty of features is an excellent choice for an older adult. Bluetooth capabilities should not be overlooked either. Bluetooth headsets allow the user to engage in conversation via a headset. Also, Bluetooth synced cars lets the consumer talk through a vehicle’s stereo system. In either case, the senior does not have to worry about holding the phone up to their ear while they engage in other activities. As we age, our eyesight deteriorates. Therefore, a smart phone with a large LCD screen is important. A smart phone with a screen width of at least three inches diagonally is a must. An example would be the HTC Touch HD which has a screen width of 3.8 inches. When one takes all of these factors into consideration, there are many models of smart phones on the market that would be ideal for a senior.
