This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Only 42 percent of those over 65 years of age own a smartphone, according to a recent study. Seniors, understandably, are reluctant to purchase such a device due to how complicated and intimidating the technology can be. However, we’ve found some models that are easy enough to learn to use, so rest assured you’ll be snapping selfies and video chatting with your grandkids in no time. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018:

Some of these models, most notably the Jitterbug and Doro, are designed specifically with seniors in mind, and are worth considering if you have limited technical savvy. However, we also included some high-quality selections that weren’t designed for any particular age group; these are so intuitive and simple to use that they work well for anyone. With any of the choices listed here, you’ll experience a learning curve, but soon enough you’ll wonder what you ever did without this fabulous invention.
