If the best smartphone doesn\u2019t interest you, perhaps you\u2019d want the best cell phone for seniors. Call the earlier 2000s because they want the Alcatel Big Easy Flip back! Even by today\u2019s standards, it offers the most essential features. And its standby mode isn\u2019t half bad, along with double minutes at the start.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Alcatel Big Easy Flip\r\nStill sporting the same design philosophy as the early 2000s, the Alcatel Big Easy Flip Phone offers the bare essentials: long standby mode, 32GB of max storage, 3G capabilities, and a good price.\r\n\r\nOverall Performance\r\nUnless your favorite game is Snake, you aren\u2019t playing anything on the Alcatel Big Easy Flip Phone\u2014but that\u2019s not its purpose. This kind of phone only needs to perform two tasks: texting and calling, which it does well. It is limited to 3G networks, however, but still significantly better than the Blu Joy Cell Phone\u2019s limitations to just 2G networks. Bluetooth is a bit old though, so you\u2019ll likely have poor connection often.\r\nBattery Life\r\nIt largely depends on how you use the Alcatel A392G Flip Phone. By leaving it on standby, it\u2019ll hold onto its charge for up to 11 days, which is admittedly just a third of what the Nokia 3310 TA-1036 can do (31 days). During use though, it\u2019s up to 3 hours. With such a battery life, you are better off picking the The Asus ROG Phone 2 which can give you 36 hours of uninterrupted use before you charge it.\r\nDisplay\r\nThe Alcatel Big Easy Flip Phone makes due with what it\u2019s got: a small, 2.4-inch display. Icons are relatively big for clarity, which is good. Compared to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, the display is subpar and nowhere near as beautiful.\r\nDurability\r\nSeeing as the Alcatel Big Easy Flip is a cheap tracfone, its durability is laughable. It\u2019s mostly plastic and lacks water resistant\u2014but it\u2019ll survive being dropped a few times.\r\nValue\r\nAs far as value is concerned, the Alcatel Big Easy Flip Phone has just about everything you\u2019d need in a functional cellphone, albeit one bereft of vibrant colors, access to great apps, and double minutes right off the bat. It\u2019s aim is to be functional. Its price, however, is the limit on what we\u2019d spend on something like this. The Blu Joy Cell Phone is cheaper, but limited to 2G, so keep that in mind.\r\nAlcatel Big Easy Flip Wrap Up\r\nThe Alcatel Big Easy Flip Phone is about as close as you can get to the \u201cbare essentials\u201d without cheating yourself. Do note its 3G network limitations and subpar battery; otherwise you\u2019ll be right as rain with its double minutes, long standby mode, and expandable storage. And it\u2019s easily affordable!
