When it comes to mobile phones, many people are looking for the sleekest smartphone they can get their hands on, complete with pixels galore and lightning quick connections.
That isn’t for everyone though. Some just want a practical phone that is easy to use.
An Post has launched the Emporia S4, a smartphone that may be of interest to older customers and those with impaired mobility.
One of the main features that will be really popular is the larger and easy-to-read fonts and app icons and a built-in magnifier feature – to save swapping glasses.
Dedicated emergency button
For those who may be hard of hearing, the phone is fully compatible with hearing aids.
There is a dedicated emergency assistance button on the back, which is especially important at the moment when we aren’t with each other as much, giving more peace of mind to users and their family, carers and friends.
Also, sometimes you can’t beat a good manual, so there is a simple guidebook to help readers learn about the phone in their own time.
An Post is especially aware that many of our older citizens have gone for long periods without close contact
An Post mobile manager Michael Ahern says: “The past year has shown just how important mobile communications are to the community and An Post is especially aware that many of our older citizens have gone for long periods without close contact with family, friends and neighbours.
“The addition of the Emporia S4 smartphone to the An Post Mobile phone range is another opportunity to make life just that little bit easier and safer for the older generation and their families.”
The S4 is currently available contract-free with An Post Mobile from €139.95 and comes with unlimited calls, texts and 4G data for just €15 per month on its new plan.
Available at all post offices and www.anpost.com/mobile.
