Nokia 6133: A Good Looking Cell Phone for Seniors

I've found another device that's suitable for senior citizens. This time it's a cell phone that will cater to users who want a beautiful phone. This handset has been describe by some experts as a "good looking" device.

Normally, mobile phone for seniors are designed for quality and user friendliness rather than fashion. But beauty is a bonus that most people want. After all, no one at any age would want to carry an ugly looking handset. Anyway, let's take a look at the "good looking" Nokia 6133.

The Nokia 6133 is similar to the Nokia 6085, a good mobile phone for seniors that I featured on this blog about three months ago. Both of these phones share many attributes that make them great handsets for the elderly. Let's explore the characteristics that defines the Nokia 6133 as a cell phone for grandparents.

The Nokia 6133 belongs to a series of clamshell Nokia phones that offer an external display. The 6133 offers a 1.5-inch, 128x160-pixel external display that shows the time, battery life, signal strength, and photo or video caller ID. However, it's the internal display that marks the Nokia 6133 as a good cell phone for seniors.

The Nokia 6133's internal display measures at 2.2 inches, 240x320 pixels, and supporting an awe-inspiring 16 million colors. These numbers puts most other comparable mid-tier cell phones to shame. The display is one of the most important factor that makes a good cell phone for senior citizens because seniors usually have poor vision. And the Nokia 6133 offers one the the brightest and best displays in the market.

Senior users can also change the font size so they can make the text and numbers if they have difficulty seeing the information on the screen. The Nokia Series 40 platform is also included in the Nokia 6133's design so users can benefit from the vivid and intuitive menu.

Size wise, is sleek and compact which is good for senior users. A thin phone would not be good for seniors because they are not easily to hold. And this cell phone for seniors is also affordable because it offered $99 with service. This is a good price considering the features that it offers.

The Nokia 6133 mobile phone for seniors also offers a key pad that is good for elderly users. This handsets keys are tactile with large, backlit numerals. These are good attributes because seniors can easily press the keys and the backlight helps users differentiate one key from the rest. There are also skinny silver bars that separate the individual rows of keys which is another good bonus.

This handset also offers a good speaker phone. Speaker phones are a workable solution to hearing aid incompatibility. Users with hearing aids can hold the phone away from the hearing aid to help reduce any feedback. It also has a 1.3 mega pixel camera which seniors can use to take and store images of their friends, children and grand children.
