We've all seen the ads for Jitterbug phones, and maybe some scoffed at them. While I am a "senior", I'm not the target market for Jitterbug as I am technical and know my way around smartphones. I recognize, however, that not everyone is and I've seen first-hand how utterly unusable many modern phones are for people with limited vision, hearing or who have trouble with tiny buttons and complex menus. The Jitterbug phones are brilliantly designed for these users and it was fascinating to explore the new Jitterbug Flip to see what Greatcall had done to make this phone so usable. This is going to be a long review, as some of mine are, but the length is necessary.
Let's start with the phone itself. It's larger and heavier than most current flip phones, but it is easy to pick up and open. On one side of the closed phone is a small black-and-white LCD screen that, when illuminated, gives the current time, date, and whether the "5Star" emergency service is enabled...
First I did not order through Amazon, actually they didn't have it listed when I purchased the phone last week. Otherwise it is a excellent basic phone for those incapable of complicated touch screens or those merely seeking simplicity.
I purchased this phone for a senior relative who had difficulty with a touchscreen phone. Size and shape it reminds me of the original Motorola Razr V3. It is slightly larger and thicker and is plastic rather than metal however. The phone covers all the basics with built in flashlight, 2 megapixel camera that works surprisingly well, Bluetooth that connected seamlessly to the car, speakerphone and large easy to read menus and address book.
Reception and call clarity are excellent, speaker phone is also quite good.
One thing odd is that when the phone is opened there is no home screen, the menus themselves are constantly displayed when the phone is open unless you start dialing a number then it kicks over to a white...
I like this little phone much more than anticipated, here's a run down of why you might, too:
Pros: No frills A dial-tone, a real dial-tone! Large, really large keys Cool Jazz ringtone available Compact Inexpensive plans through GreatCall, with paperless and paper billing out of Texas and a customer service center available You get that satisfying flip- close to end a call Yes and No keys guide you through every function Camera No internet Texting
Cons: Occasionally miss having a "smart phone" but the emotion passes instantly No internet but this is not really a con if you don't miss the distraction
