Emporia Simplicity V27 Mobile Phone for Seniors

While most modern phones are bogged down with complicated extra features, the Emporia Simplicity V27 Mobile Phone for Seniors lives up to its name, and is designed with simplicity in mind. This stripped back build, along with its large, light-up buttons, hearing aid compatibility and one-touch speed dialling, make it a fantastic option for anyone with hearing, vision, or memory issues.

On top of this, the back of the phone has an SOS button that calls and texts emergency contacts until somebody answers, giving elderly people and their loved ones greater peace of mind.

  • 1 x Micro USB-C Cable with a standard mains plug
  • 1 x User Guide
  • 1 x Phone Cradle

Key Information

  • Hearing Aid Compatible: Yes
  • Caller ID: Yes

How Easy Is This Phone To Use?

  • There are three different speed dial keys that can be set up to dial someone simply by pressing a single number
  • The emergency button on the back is simple and only requires one press to use
  • The extra large keys are illuminated, raised and have an easy-to-locate pressure point, making texting and calling simple
  • The wide screen is landscape and the text on it both large and adjustable, making it easy to read for people with limited vision
  • The extra features such as the torch, alarm clock and radio are all designed to be as simple to use as possible

Is the Screen Simple and Easy to Read?

This Emporia phone uses a landscape screen with text that is bold, large and clear to read. The size of the text is also adjustable, so when you're setting it up you can tailor the size to suit the needs of the user.

Will I Be Able to Hear This Phone?

Emporia phones are designed specifically for people who are hard of hearing, which is why they feature an adjustable volume that goes very loud, allowing for clear communication. The Simplicity V27 is also compatible with hearing aids, up to and including the M4/T4 specification, which is the highest specification of hearing aid there is. The adjustable volume also means that if you're not hard of hearing, you can choose to turn the phone down enough that you don't subsequently become hard of hearing. 

How Does This Phone Help in Emergencies? 

The Emporia emergency button has a fivefold set of safety features that helps give you and your loved ones peace of mind. It's easy to use and has been designed by experts to pre-empt the type of situation it may need to be used in.

Emporia Safety Emergency Button

The Fivefold Safety Features Are:

  1. When the emergency button is pressed, up to five predefined contacts that you choose when setting up the phone will be called until someone answers. 
  2. The phone will automatically go to loudspeaker mode so that communication can be clear and audible despite limited mobility or other issues. 
  3. A pre-prepared emergency SMS text will be sent to an emergency number. 
  4. GPS-enabled phones will provide their coordinates with the emergency call, allowing emergency services to know the exact location of the person pressing the emergency button. 
  5. A loud alarm tone will sound when the emergency button is pressed to help draw the attention of anyone in the vicinity to the emergency situation.

Is This Phone Waterproof?

The IP54 splash resistance indicates that while this phone isn't suitable to be fully submerged in water, splashes and spills shouldn't affect it. This rating also means it's protected against a build up of dust up to and including anything classified as a limited ingress. 

Does the Emporia Simplicity Have a Torch?

Good Design, but lifespan limited by when 2G network discontinued
24 July 2023  | 

Sales Team gave good advice. Bought phone for elderly mother. She was always turning her previous phone off at the end of calls because the hang up button also turned phone off. This manufacturer has on off switch on side of phone which is better. The 3 speed dial buttons are different from the keyboard buttons so not confusing. Handset volume set to maximum but sound is adequate and clear. My mother doesn't use hearing aid. She doesn't use the cradle. It's less confusing to leave it plugged in and when not in use put upside down into a mug. With previous phone the cradle pins got damaged, or phone would be left out and discharge fully. The firm makes good well designed products. Perhaps i should have paid more and got a phone not limited by the lifespan of 2G.
The firm uses the Post Office, so no worries about an expensive phone being left on a doorstep, it was also prompt.

Big improvement
09 June 2023  | 

I bought my previous phone 25 years ago when I was caring for my terminally ill Dad and might need to contact his Marie Curie nurse if I got delayed doing the weekly shop. It has endured as an emergency phone and website verification device for all those years until giving up now. The new phone is a big improvement on the old one and ironically cost the same as the original one 25 years ago.
