First Look: Samsung Jitterbug OneTouch (SPH-A110)

1:29 /

The Jitterbug OneTouch is a simple, easy-to-use phone that's ideal for senior citizens who want to stay in touch with loved ones.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> My name is Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Jitterbug One Touch. It is very similar to the Jitterbug Dial, as you can see. It's kind of bulky and wide and nice and rounded. Everything's still clean. The same volume rocker. But the difference between this and the Dial is that this has only three buttons here. the three important keys here are the operator key, to access the operator, a home key to access a predetermined home's number, and of course the 911 key. If you want to make a call that's not on your contacts list, you can just dial operator and they'll make the call for you. Very tactile buttons, yes and no, they're easy to navigate. An on and off button right here. Simple arrow keys. Very easy to use. Only thing is you can't really dial with it, but it's not meant for that. This is really meant for an emergency cell phone just for the elderly or senior citizen in your life that doesn't want to deal with the hassle of a phone, but just wants a simple way to contact his or her family or relatives or just for emergency services. So the Jitterbug One Touch is a great phone for someone old in your life that wants a very simple way to keep in contact with you and this is a great option for that. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Jitterbug One Touch. ^M00:01:28 [ Music ]
