One glance at the Snapfon ez ONE, or the newer Snapfon ezTWO, tells you it looks very different from most popular cell phones. But this is no ordinary cell phone. It is not built for everyone. Rather, it is made for a specific audience - the elderly, or anyone looking for a simple cell phone without all the bells and whistles.
The big buttons of the Snapfon ez phones let you touch each specific key without accidentally bumping into another key.
The large font display on an easy-to-read screen ensures that seniors with diminished vision can will appreciate this mobile phone. Add to that a speaking keypad that announces each key as it is pressed.
The enhanced volume capability of the Snapfon provides an amplified sound level that makes the phone friendly for senior citizens who may need a little help with their hearing. The phone's adjustable volume makes this phone as loud or as soft as you like so you can hear your conversations on your own terms.
For emergencies, a panic button adds a very helpful feature giving the user and family and friends some extra peace of mind. The SOS button can be programmed to repeatedly call and text several predefined emergency numbers until someone responds. When the red panic button is activated, the phone automatically goes into handsfree speakerphone mode just in case the user is unable to hold the phone to their ear or lips.
The compact size means you never hesitate to take the phone with you anywhere. Other attractive features of this unlocked, quad-band phone include a bright LED flashlight, an FM radio and long battery life.
The ez ONE model of the Snapfon cell phone for seniors comes in a standard dark grey color. If you prefer a brighter color, take a look at the Just5 cell phone; it is almost identical in design and features to the Snapfon, and is available in a variety of colors that may be more exciting to children.
