Family mobile phones
Something for everyone and every budget
Quinn and Jo are the parents of two kids, a ten-year-old and a fourteen-year-old. They’re looking for new family mobile phones.
Quinn is the tech savvier parent of the two. Jo is mostly comfortable with Mac products and likes tech that is easy to use and intuitive. Quinn likes to game, try out new apps and prefers a degree of customization. They both use their phones for taking pictures, work and personal email as well as keeping in touch with family.
Quinn and Jo want their ten-year-old kid to have a phone for occasional and emergency calling only. That means no texting, Internet or games.
They want to get their tween their first smartphone. Something for calling and texting family and friends, playing some games, surfing the web and using social media. Quinn and Jo want to be able to curb data use, set limits and ensure their tween isn’t using a ton of mobile data. They want their tween to learn responsible ownership and usage.
Let’s see some examples of family mobile phones they could get on a budget, some midrange models, and if they wanted to splurge, some amazing flagship phones as well.
