In response to this senior-unfriendly market came the design and production of the Jitterbug5,
the best cell phone for seniors. There are many design and function features that
set the Jitterbug5 apart from other phones – all intended to create the best experience

The Jitterbug5 has many physical design elements that make it the best cell phone
for seniors. Unlike the majority of mass-market cell phones, the Jitterbug5 has
big buttons that are labeled in a large, clear-to-read font. The keys are backlit,
making the phone easily used in both full and low lighting. Also, all navigation
of the Jitterbug5’s simple and clear menu is done using intuitive “yes/no” buttons.
Another feature making the Jitterbug5 the best cell phone for seniors is a powerful
speaker that ensures all calls are loud and clearly audible.
Long Lasting Battery
As modern cell phones advance in their applications and functions, they also require
much more battery power. Depending on level of use, a standard cell phone may need
to be charged multiple times a day. Another reason the Jitterbug5 is the best cell
phone choice for seniors is because of its extended battery life – an impressive
battery with up to 25 days of standby time. This prolonged battery life can give
you confidence that your phone will be charged and ready when you need it. The extraordinary
capacity of the battery becomes especially important when using the phone as a safety
or medical device, as many senior citizens do.
Easy-to-Use Camera Features
Though the Jitterbug5 was originally designed to be the best and most straightforward
cell phone for seniors, it also includes the useful feature of a built-in camera.
Most cell phones now have a built-in camera, but often they are complicated to use
and difficult to find in the phone’s infrastructure. The Jitterbug5’s camera is easily
accessed through the simple main menu, and a picture is taken with the press of
a single button. Additionally, Jitterbug® has made photo-sharing easy for seniors!
Directly from your phone, with the press of a button, you can post any picture to
your favorite photo-sharing site. No need to log on, connect to a computer, or find
the right wires, just press the button, and your photo is uploaded.
Designed and specifically created to meet the distinctive needs of the senior –
the Jitterbug5 is the best cell phone for seniors.
