The Senior-Friendly Sanyo Vero

Here's another Senior-friendly cell phone from Sprint. The basic Sanyo Vero SCP-3820 is an affordable handset that ca serve the needs of senior citizens.

The Sanyo Vero was recently released a few months ago amidst monster smartphones. However, this seemingly meek mobile phone can still find a market among seniors and beginners.

This mobile phone for seniors features a clamshell design with dual displays. The main screen measures 2.4-inches. This is a good size for seniors and the display supports rich colors with vivid resolution. The external display is not very large and is only useful for displaying the time battery life and signal strength without the owner needing to open the phone.

The Sanyo Vero also comes with a user-friendly keypad that allows users to dial by feel. They buttons are a bit flat and slick but they are marked with large text and numbers. Users with visual impairments will have no problems with using the Vero because its keypad buttons also are large and are brightly backlit for dialing in the dark.

This phone for the elderly also features a menu system that is easy to navigate. This means that senior users can learn to use the phone in just a few hours. The Talk and End/power keys are also marked in green and red respectively making calls quick and easy.

The Sanyo Vero's accessible design makes it ideal for seniors with weak vision. It's also affordable and can fit the budget of elderly users.

That's it for this post. Tune in next week for more mobile phones for seniors and related topics.
