Erratic Charger, Tiny Symbols
on 4 November 2016
I've had this for two and a half years now, and used it lightly.
I wanted something simple without lots of complicated functions. This phone fulfills that, it just does phone calls, voice mail and texting.
The phone has been mostly reliable.
However, after a couple of years of light use, the charger has become erratic. I can no longer just stand the phone in the cradle overnight. I have to fiddle with it until the light comes on, and check every 5 minutes that it's still charging.
The number keys are nice and big, easy to read, easy to tap. But other items - such as the lock switch - have such miniscule symbols, they practically need a magnifying glass to see. This defeats the object of easy use for those with limited sight.
Also, I find the name offensive. Describing a product as 'easy senior' implies that a) seniors are stupid and need something easy and b) only seniors want easy-to-use stuff. I know both to be untrue.
