Bar or Candybar mobiles have a physical number keypad as does a Flip phone. Rugged mobiles can take extra punishment and tend to have a rubber casing while smartphones can do a lot more than just talk and text with greater support for apps.

4G support Expand to view more details.

The ability for the mobile to support a 4G mobile network is important if you intend to keep your mobile phone for more than a couple of years as the existing 3G network is scheduled to be shut down for mobile phone calls and texting by 2024.

Hearing aid support Expand to view more details.

The Microphone (M) rating and T-coil (T) rating determine how well your hearing aid will work with your mobile phone. If you use your hearing aid in Microphone mode (M), look for a phone with an M3 or M4 rating. If you prefer telecoil coupling (T), look for a phone with T3 or T4 rating. A sum of six (M3/T3) or greater indicates that the telephone would probably provide good performance with that hearing aid. Models that do not have score either support hearing aids but do not specify a rating (yes), or do not provide hearing aid support (no).

SAR (W/kg) Expand to view more details.

The specific absorption rate (SAR) indicates the amount of energy per kilogram of body weight absorbed when using the phone as claimed by the manufacturer. All are well below government limits, or you wouldn't be able to buy the phone in Australia. Although evidence relating to exposure to electromagnetic fields remains inconclusive, you may want to choose a model with a lower SAR value if this is a concern to you.
