Senior-Focused Mobile Devices
To identify up to 10 mobile devices, including device brand name, version, model, and operating system, which are recommended for seniors (65+) or disabled individuals. This information will be used to help to understand potential device usage for the target audiences of a Medicare app in development.
In this one-hour of research, we have compiled a list of recommended senior and disabled-focused mobile devices, their brand, version, model number, and operating system. Recommended phones are typically based on senior and disabled-friendly features (e.g., large screen, large font) and performance.

Summary of Additional One Hour Of Research Relevant To The Goals
We identified several lists of recommended senior and disabled-focused smartphones for this compilation. All recommendations were based on recent lists (within the past 5 months), from technical and senior-focused experts, including PCMag, TechRadar, and Assisted Living Today. Other senior and tech-focused sources, such as the Senior List and Technobezz, were cross-referenced, and included many of the same recommendations. Each phone is linked to a retail site in which more detail can be found about the phone (typically Amazon, but in some cases, other online retailers, such as Best Buy).
