2 February 2023  |  Eugene

After years of being one of our most popular and reliable mobile phones for the hard of hearing, the Geemarc CL8500 has finally been replaced. Some of the features are now out of date and incompatible with current networks, so it's been refined and replaced by the new and improved Geemarc CL8700 Amplified Clamshell Mobile Phone!

Why Has the Geemarc CL8500 Amplified Mobile Been Replaced?

While the Geemarc CL8500 Mobile was reliable for its time, mobile performance has since been improved. Don't worry though, the CL8700 maintains the same simple design and works in the same way, but adds clarity, connectivity and better battery life:

  • Better Coverage with 4G: The 3G network is being turned off UK-wide, meaning 3G users will have to upgrade. The CL8700 provides better reception on the UK's newer 4G network.
  • Improved Battery Life: The CL8700 has a more powerful battery, providing a whopping 4 days of standby time between charges.
  • Better Camera: The 300K pixel camera on the CL8500 Flip Phone was getting behind the times. The 2MP camera of the CL8700 provides nearly 10 times the detail!
  • Lots of Improvements: Easier to use and clearer to the ear, the CL8700 is better in so many ways. Click the link below to learn more.
