Widely known for its range of home and mobile phones and other communications devices, including modems and routers, Alcatel remains a trusted name. Aimed at the budget end of the market, Alcatel mobiles offer simple interfaces and basic operation, which makes them suitable for users who do not require all the bells and whistles of a touch screen smartphone.
However, the company does also offer a range of the latter. Keep a fully charged backup battery on hand so you can be sure you can dial out in the event of an emergency, and protect the keys and screen with a selection of soft silicone cases. Lastly, for the visually impaired, the SOS phone features a standard layout with larger buttons for ultimate simplicity suitable for texting and making calls.
