Vodafone 155 review

 

The Vodafone 155 offers big-buttoned simplicity, an SOS emergency button and hearing-aid compatibility -- making it easy to use for elderly or less capable mobile users. At £25 on pay as you go, it's certainly very cheap, but it isn't always as easy to...

Incredibly cheap ; Handy charging dock ; SOS button ; Hearing aid compatible

Interface could be simpler ; Fewer features would make it more straightforward

The Vodafone 155 is a very affordable mobile, ideal for an elderly relative or someone who needs a very basic phone for making calls and to have in case of emergencies.

Let's get this clear from the start. The Vodafone 155 is not one of the new breed of feature phones aping the functionality of more expensive smartphones. Where Nokia's new Asha S40 handsets can surf the web, navigate, chat with iPhone and Android...

While much of the design and thoughtful home dock accessory included make this an ideal mobile phone for an elderly relative, it could still be better. For £25, it almost seems as though too many features have been included.

Very cheap, easy set-up, large keypad, SOS button, hearing aidcompatible, charging dock

Could be even simpler, no headphones supplied

The Vodafone 155 is a handset that makes mobile simple for peoplewho feel left behind by the mobile revolution. With its bigbuttons, clear display, FM radio, SOS alert mode (and very lowprice), it's an ideal present for an elderly relative.

The Vodafone 155 mixes accessibility with affordability, offering a cheap pay as you go option specifically for seniors. It's by no means a phone for your average mobile phone user, but we take a look at the handset through the eyes of an elderly...

The candybar handset offers similar features to the Doro PhoneEasy 410GSM, including an extra-large, extra comfortable alphanumeric keypad, perfect for the partially sighted or those with clumsy fingers. This arrives married with a large vibrant...
