Verizon recently added a new, basic feature phone to its offering called Samsung Gusto 2 which would certainly remind you of cell phones that you and I have used, about 5-6 year ago. Samsung Gusto 2 is an easy to use flip phone offers a 2” bright display with adjustable font, and well spaced keypad for dialing numbers and typing texts easily.
Verizon thinks people who’d buy this phone might be using social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, which is quite unlikely; but if they do, this phone can help them quickly update their status. The phone comes with DyVE (Dynamic Voice Enhancement) with noise suppression technology for clearer, noiseless conversations.
For old people who have reading issues, this phone can speak out menu and sub-menu items for them including incoming texts, contacts list, battery level, signal strength et cetera. Samsung Gusto 2 also features a 1.3-megapixel rear camera and customizable one-touch shortcut keys and navigation buttons. Interestingly, you can also receive a Fake call on this phone which can be useful when you’re talking with irritating acquaintances at social gatherings.
So, on the whole, I don’t think Samsung Gusto 2 is for people who generally read my blog, but it could be a great gifting option for your elderly loved ones. Verizon is offering this phone with 2-year contract for $79.99 along with a $50 mail-in rebate.
