Alcatel OneTouch 282 is an entry-level phone designed for elderly or minimal mobile users who want a straightforward handset for making calls and sending the odd text.
At just £30 on pay as you go, the handset is cheaper than lots of other mobiles marketed at elderly people -- such as Doro's range of simplified handsets. But Vodafone is offering essentially the same device -- the Vodafone 155 -- for £5 less.
Both phones have an SOS button on the back that can be customised to call and text a variety of contacts, plus hearing aid compatibility and an FM radio. They also come with a handy charging dock where the handset can live when it's at home.
Should I buy the Alcatel OneTouch 282?
The Alcatel OneTouch 282 is the phone you buy for an older relative who would struggle with small buttons or touchscreens.
Alcatel describes it as "a simple choice for those who don't want a complicated Android device" -- and it's certainly light on features.
