Easy-to-use cell phones aren't impossible to find, but if you have more questions than answers, it's always good to consult cell phone rating sites. The best cell phone models for those who love simplicity should include a keypad that is large enough to dial comfortably with volume buttons that can be used independently of other features. For instance, LG cell phones have received positive reviews about their ease of use. There are a variety of different LG models, ranging from the Chocolate to the LG enV VX9900.
Some cell phone models include the volume controls on the sides of the phone, but if that model also has an "end-call" button near the volume controls, you could find yourself hanging up instead of adjusting the audio levels. One of the most important (and overlooked) features of an easy-to-use cell phone is the width of the phone.Can you dial easily with one hand? If the phone is too wide for your hand, you won't be able to dial unless you have both hands free. If the model is too small for your hand, you may wind up fumbling with the phone more often than dialing properly. Always check to see if the cell phone is a good match for your hand before buying.
