I saw this phone and thought it would be more helpful to my 105 year old mother. It fell short in two ways. 1. There wasn’t a speaker button so I could put it on speaker when she wasn’t in her chair next to the phone. 2. There was some feedback between the phone and her hearing aids that didn’t help her hear better. I liked the calling by photo or letter. One problem with that was given my mom’s phone, you needed to include 1 before calling out of state but the phone only took 10 digits and I needed to have 11. My expectations for the phone were higher than the actual item. 😓
The volume slider has its peak volume in the middle of the slider, and volume decreases on either end, even at the highest setting. The phone generates a loud clicking sound at some settings of the volume slider. It is critical to find a setting that avoids the clicking noise and generates its peak volume.
