The Good The Jitterbug Plus has reliable call quality, a huge keypad for easy typing, and a friendly user interface.
The Bad The Plus' camera is poor, there's no way to mute keypad tones, the calendar UI is tedious, and the health service fees are expensive.
The Bottom Line Though the senior-aimed Jitterbug Plus is easy to use and has good call quality, it's overpriced for its low-end features.
Jitterbug Plus (Great Call)
It's been three years since Great Call's last new Jitterbug phone, but its newest model has been released.
The Jitterbug Plus is sleeker than previous models and it sports a narrower body. It also has a camera, which users can link to their Facebook accounts and upload photos directly.
But while incorporating Web 2.0 may be a good step forward, this phone skimps on a few fundamental needs. And if users are going to have to fork over $119 (or $99 for the introductory price), these missing features are more important than the capability to get someone to Like and comment on a photo of your grandson.
