Let’s face it – a lot of the cell phones out there are far too complicated for everyday use, and others are far too simple. Is there a perfect medium?
The answer is yes.
In this blog post I’ll be pointing out what’s so great about the RAY Huawei G300 and G510, both fully functional cell phones for the blind.
The two phones are practically the same, but it must be noted that the G510 features higher performance, a larger screen, and higher resolution camera. If you’re looking for a little edge, then this is the model for you.
Regardless of model, there are some features that truly define the RAY Huawei G-series:
- Eye-free operation
- Advanced capabilities: GPS, voice recorder, money and color identifier
- Accessible audio content including audio books, newspapers, and magazines
- Desktop website interface for more efficient and easy data entry (contacts, calendar)
- Customer support via remote access
The first is a given, as it is a phone for the blind or those with low vision. The eye-free operation is very smooth and intuitive, as one would expect from such a high-quality phone.
For some, the advanced capabilities may be unnecessary. This could be a sign that a more basic phone is in order, such as the Jitterbug Plus. But if you are into a few bells and whistles then you’ll love these extra features!
We’re living in the age of smartphones, and people expect to be able to do more than just call and text message their friends. Fortunately, the G-series allows users to access a library of over 100,000 audio books, allowing continuous entertainment, education, or simply relaxation.
For those of you who find entering and editing precise information on a small cell phone difficult and annoying, you’ve been heard! The G300 and G510 both feature a desktop website interface which allows users to manage their device over the web. This includes entering contact information, setting important dates on the calendar, and more.
The main selling point of the phone, though, is the customer support feature. We all know how utterly frustrating technology problems can be. What’s even worse is the lack of customer support that most companies offer (who wants to spend 30 minutes on hold?). Huawei has addressed this by including a one-of-a-kind remote access customer support feature, meaning representatives can gain access to your phone and hopefully fix it from a remote destination.
Overall, the RAY Huawei G300 and G510 are great cell phones built for accessibility. The price may seem a little steep, but when factoring in the amount of features and high build quality of the phone – it makes sense.
