Lively is widely known for its popular phones for seniors, and its newest device, the Jitterbug Flip2, is an ideal option for people with hearing impairment. With its M4/T4 hearing aid compatibility, this device worked exceptionally well in our trial runs. Each of our test calls came in clearly with no interfering noise.
The Jitterbug Flip2 separates itself from other flip phones with its extra features. In addition to its built-in magnifier, flashlight, and dual cameras (one for photos and one for selfies), the Flip2 also offers Google Assistant. With this feature, we were able to make calls, send messages, and even browse the web using only our voice.
This phone can double as a medical alert system if you subscribe to one of Lively’s health and safety packages. By opting in to this service, you can use the phone’s dedicated emergency response button, which provides 24/7 access to Lively’s monitoring center, which can contact first responders during an emergency.
