Emporia Smart S5 Simple Smartphone for the Elderly

Standard smartphone designs can be difficult to use for the elderly, and a simplified interface can go a long way to helping them stay in touch without hassle. The Emporia Smart S5 Simple Smartphone for the Elderly is designed to provide all of the convenience of a modern smartphone with none of the hassle, as it features a simple interface and a unique Smartcase, which limits the phone to four buttons for key functions when closed.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Emporia Smart S5 Mobile Phone (with Li-ion battery)
  • 1 x Smartcover
  • 2 x Battery covers (one without SOS button)
  • 1 x Micro USB-C Cable
  • 1 x Training book (with extra user guide)
  • 1 x Desktop charger
  • 1 x Headset

How Easy Is the Emporia S5 to Use?

The Emporia Smart S5 is designed to be the perfect entry point for new smartphone users, as it will walk you through every step of using your phone until it feels like second nature. With simplified operations and a helpful handbook to guide you through, this smartphone has been made with feedback from customers to make it the easiest and most stress-free phone around.

Unique Smartcase for Simplicity

The Smartcase is what really elevates this mobile over other smartphones, as when open, the S5 performs as a normal smartphone with a simplified interface, but when closed, the Smartcase displays four key functions for maximum simplicity. The keys respond only to fingers to eliminate accidental activation, and can be adapted to show favourite functions or even important contacts with photo buttons. The Smartcase provides the best of both worlds, making the S5 a full-functioning smartphone that can be used as a super-simple mobile when needed.

What Can I Do with the Smartcase Closed?

For most of your key functions, you won't have to deal with anything but the four buttons on the Smartcase if you don't want to. With the Smartcase closed, you can easily:

  • Make and Receive Calls: Answering and hang-up buttons can be displayed, as well as your favourite contacts
  • Use Favourite Functions: Taking pictures, activating the torch and more can all be done with the Smartcase buttons
  • Use Whatever You'd Like: You can adapt these buttons in any way you'd like, allowing you to control your music, or use most of your favourite apps

Will I Be Able to Hear This Phone?

The Emporia S5 Mobile Phone is designed to be easy to hear for everyone, with an earpiece that's louder than a standard phone. The Emporia Smart 5 also features full M4/T4 hearing aid compatibility, ensuring you can pipe the sound directly into your hearing aid so you never miss a word on a call. It also features an incredibly-loud speaker for hands-free calling or listening to music, clocking in at a booming 99.4dB!

Is the Screen Easy to Read?

Mobile phones are also notorious for dull screen and tiny text, which is another aspect that puts the Emporia S5 head and shoulders above the competition. It features a large 5.5" (14cm) screen with high-contrast colours, and is set as standard with extra-large text. The phone also features large, clearly labelled icons on the screen, ensuring you always know what to press, and where to go.

Does the Emporia S5 Have a Good Camera?

Yes, this phone is actually outfitted with four high-quality camera lenses: three at the rear and one front-facing camera for selfies. At the rear is a super-crisp 13 Megapixel camera for clear, vibrant shots, as well as two extra cameras for macros, night shots and portraits. The front-facing selfie camera takes pictures with 8 Megapixel detail, which is more than enough for detailed selfies.

Can This Phone Help Me in Emergencies?

The back of this phone features the Emporia emergency button to provide peace of mind, which will call your favourite contacts in the event of an emergency. If you don't need this function, the phone also includes a second battery cover without an SOS button. When pressed, the SOS button will:

  1. Call up to five pre-set contacts until someone answers
  2. Automatically put your phone in loudspeaker mode (an alarm will sound to alert anyone nearby to assist)
  3. A pre-prepared emergency text will be sent to an emergency number
  4. If you have GPS enabled by your service provider, GPS details will be sent with each call

Is This Phone Waterproof?

While we don't recommend taking your phone with you to the bottom of the pool, it is built with  IP54-rated splash resistance, meaning you don't have to worry if it gets wet.

Does the Emporia S5 Smartphone Have a Torch?

Yes, as is the standard for most modern mobile phones, a bright torch is included at the rear. This is great for any time you find yourself in a dark situation, and also provides a nice flash for low-light pictures.

What Other Features Does This Phone Have?

Despite its simple interface, this phone is packed with features, and you can expect most features available on a modern mobile phone to be present. Between the calendar, GPS, phonebook, Bluetooth-compatibility and range of other features, this phone can help you in all sorts of aspects of your life. Browse the 'Key Features and Benefits' section below for some more of the features this phone includes.

How Fast is This Smartphone?

With a 1.8Hz Octa Core processor speed, this phone will switch between tasks and complete everything instantly with snappy speed. It's also able to connect to the fastest 4G networks, allowing you to browse the internet quickly and efficiently.

What Kind of SIM Card Does This Mobile Use?

This phone is designed to use a Nano SIM. Simply insert the Nano SIM provided by your mobile service provider and you should be ready to go.

Which Networks Will This Phone Work With?

The Emporia Smartphone for Seniors is supplied unlocked, meaning that it will work with SIM cards from all major UK mobile networks.

This product is just as complicated as other smart phones
08 October 2023  | 

My husband struggles with technology and i bought this for him hoping that this phone would be simple to use. We’re finding that it’s just as complicated as any other smart phone out there. Very disappointed as I could have got him a much cheaper smart phone elsewhere.

Very pleased with this phone! I am 81 years old and finding it quite easy to use and very useful! Lovely to send and receive photos! Have only had it a few days so still 'finding my way' around it! I am not using the cover as I found it easier without it!, a simple cover without fastening would be better! So far so good!

Overall I’m pleased….
18 June 2023  | 

Delivery was good and company kept me informed. Easy to navigate and clear in tone. However, the software “froze” yesterday and I had to restart to clear the malfunction. That was unexpected and, I thought, shouldn’t have happened really because I’m by no means a heavy user.

Emporia Smart 5: ideal for us oldies!
09 June 2023  | 

There is quite a lot to learn when embarking on your first ever smartphone, but Emporia make it as easy as it can be, with a really good handbook. Also, the fact that when buying it outright, and for a very reasonable price, you can shop around for a good SIM only deal, is a big plus and saves a lot of money.

Found it easy, but I made it harder for myself, putting in the Sim card, I jerk and the sim card, caught the battery connection and bent it, had to wait the holiday weekend and had it corrected at the repair shop, now ok.
now keep finding something to do.

Emporia Smart S5 Simple Smartphone for the Elderly
09 February 2023  | 

The delivery was outstanding. It arrived earlier than I thought and just when I needed it. The product is good but I would say it is for an elderly person with full mental and physical capacity. not as simple as I would have liked it, but still a very good product. For example, digging on a screen can be difficult for an elderly person. Real buttons would be way better. This comment would benefit the company who produced the phone in trying to make something even simpler to use in the mobile phone niche.

An Excellent Purchase
08 June 2022  | 

My husband being totally deaf in one ear and having only 20% hearing in the other needed a phone with a very loud ring. This phone has it and more. Great internet connectivity too. I’d like for myself and I only have mild hearing loss. Just wish we had good enough signal in our home for husband to receive calls. Only one negative and that is phone doesn’t have facility for Wi-Fi calling. Great phone otherwise absolutely fantastic.
