Smartphones make it easier to connect with family and friends or find resources for assistance. Many seniors are enjoying smartphones that make their lives simpler, but they also need a device that meets their particular needs.

Accessibility is often a main priority for seniors in the market for a smartphone. But other factors include performance and cost.

Here are six of the best smartphones for seniors:

1. Apple iPhone 6S — The phone has plenty of space for senior citizens who don’t spend a lot of time taking selfies with about 16GB of storage, according to Lifewire. It’s easy for them to learn how to navigate through messages, email, and apps.

2. Jitterbug Smart — The easy-to-use, large touchscreen also provides seniors with the basics. A simple tap allows access to immediate service 24/7 for connecting with an agent who can offer help and emergency information.

3. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 — This device also has a large screen and can enlarge fonts for better viewing. The 32GB of storage is plenty of room for pictures of the family, too.

4. Doro 824 SmartEasy — The clear display allows large text and icons for easy reading. The Doro Manager app lets family members or friends download applications remotely to assist seniors, who also have a button to call for emergencies, according to the Senior List.

6. LG Tribute HD — A five-inch display, effective cameras, and plenty of power make this phone ideal for many seniors. It has room to store personal photos and videos.
