Simple Smartphone strips down the complicated features of a typical smartphone while leaving all of the convince and connection that a smartphone can provide. This device is great for a wide audience including people with cognative disabilities, people with fine motor skill disabilities, and seniors.

This prevents the scenario of forgetting where a photo is located or needing to remember to save it.
Enlarged text and buttons as well as descriptions next to most icons are other features that make this phone simple. The phone also has a feature called Long Click. This functionality only responds to deliberate clicks and works to ignore accidental taps and brushes to help users have more control over their device.
