Description

Average Star Rating:
75.9%

Description

Nokia invades the pop culture by making a selfie (self-photos) phone for the self-admiring person in you. Nicknamed as the "selfie phone", it is equipped with a 5-megapixel front camera with the Lumia Selfie app (also shared by the newer Lumia 735) and a 6.7-megapixel main camera with ZEISS optics. Other specs that it shares with its twin include the 4.7-inch (1280 x 720) display equipped with Nokia's super-sensitive touch system and a sunlight-readable finish. Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, and 1.2GHz quad-core processor. It also offers Skype video call and dual SIM capabilities.

#5. The SpareOne Emergency Phone

Description

The world's only AA-battery-powered mobile phone (as of its release), the SpareOne Emergency Phone's crisis-ready specs include a Locate and Alert button that alerts up to five guardians, a panic siren, and a flashing LED light function that signals for help in Morse code. It also comes with a glow-in-the-dark keypad as well as M3/T4 hearing aid compliance, with a White-Red dual-color shell tying everything together.

#6. The Nokia 130 Dual SIM

Average Star Rating:

Description

The Nokia 130 Dual-SIM follows the single-SIM version very closely, apparently offering an on-the-go access to video and MP3 files from the lowest-specked category. It promises up to 16 hours of video playback and up to 46 hours of music-playing with its 1020mAh battery. It comes with up to 32GB of memory expansion support. The lack of a camera and Wi-Fi (3G) connectivity might translate to some drawbacks, though. The 130 Dual-SIM might see some action as a secondary mobile device, or simply a cheap gadget that plays your music or videos off a microSD card.

#7. The Emporia Euphoria

Description

This basic Emporia phone is geared towards a senior clientele, with specs like a 2.3-inch TFT screen with an adjustable font size as well as an emergency call function (up to 5 emergency contacts) in tow. It also has a substantial 1350mAh battery capacity, considering that a ton of other basic bar phones have below-1000mAh power caps. In addition, the Euphoria features a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, and its own charging cradle.

#8. The Emporia Essence Plus

Average Star Rating:

Description

The Emporia Essence Plus phone seems to offer purely basic specs. For starters, it has larger-sized buttons with elevated dots, a high-contrast display, and a hearing-aid-compatible speaker. This senior-oriented phone only stores up to 100 messages, has a frail 180 minutes of talk time, and a rather-sorry 200 minutes of stand-by time.

#9. The Doro Liberto 650

Description

Doro takes their traditional basic flip phone equation, but plugs in a few fresh features. The Liberto 650 is certified for HD Voice, a technology intended to enhance in-call audio quality and reduce background noise. Doro also equipped it with 3G bands this time around, with email support, a web-based device manager and a web browser built around it. Just like most Doro flip phones, the 650 sports a backlit numeric keypad with separated keys and a customizable display, clearly gearing it towards elder or visually-impaired users. It also comes with a 2-megapixel camera.
