If you want a phone that ‘keeps it simple’ – then the Emporia Vodafone RL1 may be right for you


www.primetimelife.tv’s Diana Moran has road tested the emporia RL1 and says: - “this phone is exactly what a lot of my older friends want and need. All the features on the Vodafone emporia RL1 are those I would like – and keeping it simple is the key! Just text and phone – with large numbers and easy to understand buttons. Why hasn’t this been thought of before?"14-07-2011

"There are 21 million of us over 50’s - in the UK alone. But up till now, our needs have been ignored by the telecommunication service providers.” We often feel overwhelmed by the vast range of mobile products. Indeed for anyone coping with motor impairment or is a ‘newbie’ to mobile telephony, all we want is technical simplicity and ease of use.” sadi Diana

What I liked about the Vodaphone emporia RL1 phone says Diana Moran.

  • Under SETTINGS there is an option called “SMS in PhoneBk” – when this is enabled it allows friends and family to text their number to RL1 so that it is automatically added to the phone book. Helpful for people who struggle to add names and numbers to their phones.
  • When a phone call ends, if the number called or calling is not already in your phone book, RL1 will ask you if you want to save the number to the phone book
  • The on-off button is on the side of the phone so as not to be confused with the END button. Many phones reuse the Red END button to turn the phone on, but this can be confusing, since all across the world Red means stop not GO!
  • There is a cradle that is for both charging the phone and also provides hand’s free calling via a button on the side. The phone even comes with wall plus and screws so someone can fix the cradle to the wall
  • The font size for both text messages and for the phone’s menu system is adjustable so users can increase the size of the text
  • When you switch your phone to silent, you are asked how long you want the phone to be on silent for – so you don’t forget that it is on silent and miss calls later in the day
  • The keypad has strong tactile feedback – this means when you press a button you know you have pushed hard enough for it to register
  • The font type on RL1 has been specially created to remain clear and well defined, when expanded from small to large. It is also suitable for people that suffer from minor eye problems
  • Throughout the RL1 there is help if you get stuck. If you scroll through the menu and stop on one particular item, a description of what that function does comes up after a few seconds
  • You can save your top 5 names and numbers so that they appear at the start of your phone book – that way you don’t have to scroll through pages of numbers to find the most important people to talk to

RL1 availability:
Exclusively available from Vodafone UK, and through Tesco and Asda stores.
