1. Alcatel GO FLIP 3 - Best Overall Unlocked Phone
What We Like Most:
- Smartphone features
- Large tactile buttons
- Up to 17 days of battery life
- $100 device cost
The Alcatel GO FLIP 3 combines the simplicity of a traditional smartphone with the advanced features of a smartphone, making it our favorite unlocked device for seniors.
For starters, its bright 2.8-inch screen makes it easy to read emails and phone numbers. Its backlit keypad also makes it easy to type with its large, tactile buttons. There’s also a small external screen, allowing you to screen calls and messages without even opening your phone.
What’s more, the GO FLIP has Google Assistant built-in. With this software, using only your voice, you can make phone calls, schedule reminders, and ask questions, all hands-free. In a pinch, this phone can also be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot. In our tests, this phone also lasted easily through an entire day on a single charge.
Cost: The price of a GO FLIP will vary depending on where you purchase it; however, from T-Mobile or MetroPCS, the device will cost you $100.
