Is the best smartphone available a bit too much? Are you looking for the best cell phone for seniors that won\u2019t break the bank? If so, the Zoey Flex might be a great option for you! At a quick glance, this phone doesn\u2019t look like much, and that\u2019s an accurate assessment. It doesn\u2019t have any advanced features (like wifi capabilities) but offers a basic, easy-to-use experience perfect for senior citizens.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - BLU Zoey Flex\r\nThe BLU Zoey Flex is one of the cheapest Blu products we\u2019ve seen yet. This extremely basic phone doesn\u2019t even have internet capabilities, but it can play MP3s, receive FM radio transmissions, supports Bluetooth headphones, and has dual SIM card support.\r\n\r\nOverfall Performance\r\nIt\u2019s a phone that can take pictures and play music. Beyond that, the Blue Zoey Flex doesn\u2019t have much to offer. While it might look really poor next to a smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, this phone isn\u2019t designed for heavy users or even casual users. It\u2019s simply there to make calls, and that\u2019s really it. Still, a louder speaker would have been nice, especially for the hearing impaired. On the plus side, you do get a choice of color: black or gold.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThis phone comes with a single battery and a charger. The 600 mAh lithium-ion battery that it runs on offers a fair battery life, so you can expect to get about 8 and a half hours of talking before you need to recharge the device. If you need a longer battery life, you may want to consider the BLU JOY Cell Phone instead. Unfortunately, you will have to choose between the 3G capabilities offered on this device and the longer battery life of the BLU JOY.\r\nDisplay\r\nSlightly stuck in the past, the BLU Zoey Flex has a flip phone design (if you prefer a non-foldable model, check out the Nokia 3310 TA-1036 instead). This actually works nicely on the phone though, because in addition to the main 1.8\u201d display you also get a\r\nwindow display so you can see the display without opening the phone. It\u2019s not an actual screen though; rather, it\u2019s a thin clear layer of plastic that\u2019s see-through. It\u2019s a cool feature, but it definitely highlights the budget-friendly design of the Flex.\r\nDurability\r\nUnfortunately, since this phone was built with cost-cutting in mind, the overall build of the device could definitely be improved. Since the display window is just see-through plastic (rather than an actual screen), it feels fairly flimsy and is very likely to break upon impact. In fact, the entire phone is cased in cheap plastic, so this phone is liable to break if mishandled in the slightest. Fortunately, you can get protective cases for this device, but since you have to remove the phone from most cases to actually use it, the case is unlikely to help very much.\r\nValue\r\nThe biggest competitive advantage that the BLU Zoey Flex has is its low price point. Costing only $25, you\u2019ll be hard-pressed to find another phone this cheap. It does come with a warranty, though unfortunately, you\u2019ll only be covered for three months. There doesn\u2019t appear to be any protection plans available for this phone, but that\u2019s not a problem because a protection plan wouldn\u2019t be worth it on a device this cheap. The phone has received mixed reviews on Amazon, scoring 3.2 out of 5 (based on 173 ratings). A good smartphone alternative to this rugged phone would be Blackview BV9900, which offers everything you need in a smartphone and can handle high falls.\r\nBLU Zoey Flex Wrap Up\r\nThe BLU Zoey Flex is the perfect device if you\u2019re looking for a phone (and nothing more). It doesn\u2019t have any special features available, but at least it\u2019s less than $30. Overall, we can see it being useful for seniors who barely use their phones, but most people would be better off looking elsewhere.
