Bottomline: Considering the senior citizen's requirements, Easyphone added almost every required feature in the Shiled+ phone. Having a rugged device for the elderly is useful for accidental drops. For the trekkers, it's a perfect companion to be connected to the world.

In the crowd of smartphones, barely we do talk about any feature phone, but this time we have a special phone which is a perfect fit for senior citizens and trekkers. The rugged phone is certified with IP68, meaning it is waterproof, shockproof, and dustproof phone. It looks like one tough, but the back cover is designed a bit differently. Let’s find out more –

Build and features

It looks like any other feature phone though the phone is a bit heavy which is obvious because of its ruggedness. The back cover is removable but it’s not like any other phone. It got four screws that hold the back panel tightly. This is a solid device that can easily handle accidental drops, spills etc. While testing the device, we dropped it from 4 to 5 feet, and there was no damage.

Compared to other phones, the keys are large but not enough for senior citizens. It has a 2.8-inch screen with a good amount of brightness and image clarity. It has a dedicated SOS button for any emergency help. One can easily configure to whom you want to be contacted for any emergency and with one press of a button the phone will send an SMS, trigger the siren, and make calls.

Shield+ comes with a photo speed dial feature. No need to look into the long list of contacts, you can create a photo contact of your most called or near and dear ones. This could be useful for people who cant dial a number, you can set up multiple contacts with photos so they can easily identify them.

Performance

The Shield+ supports two SIMs and one microSD card. When I received the device, it shipped with a 2 GB MicroSD card. There is no setup required, simply insert the SIM and it is ready to use. One can easily set up the photo dial and SOS kind of features. While using the device, we got no hiccups. The call quality is perfectly fine. The speaker volume is loud enough. The phone having a 2500 mAh battery can last for more than 2 weeks with moderate usage. Interestingly you can use the phone as a power bank to charge other small devices such as a smartwatch. It comes with a MicroUSB port, for charging and data sharing. However to make charging quick and snappy, it comes with a charging dock which makes charging super easy.

The camera is good enough. Surely there are no major functions you can expect yet the photos taken come with a good amount of details and clarity. Overall it is a good device, yet in today’s world we all are using WhatsApp and other apps to be connected with our friends and family which is missing. I wish, in future, they would provide support to such apps.
