Что пожилой человек забывает чаще всего? Пожалуй, зарядить мобильный телефон. Именно поэтому недорогие бабушкофоны должны работать от одного заряда очень долго. Но по нашей подборке вы могли понять, что этому правилу многие производители совершенно не следуют. Лишь FAMOUS P11 в этом плане действительно радует. Питание ему обеспечивает батарея, ёмкость которой составляет 3100 mAh. Этого хватает примерно на 18 часов работы в режиме разговора!

What else can boast this model? The presence of 1.3 MP camera. Its capacity is enough to create an image that is placed in the phone book. Also, we should note the three slots for SIM-cards. And the device is assembled with quality materials — part housing is made of metal. Most of all, the device is similar to old cell phones from a Sony Ericsson. Но оно не такое же легкое — вес здесь равняется внушительным 185 gраммам. Это даёт о себе знать батарея. В целом, это весьма продвинутый мобильник, который бабушкофоном можно считать с большой натяжкой.
