The metal frame to the front, the wobble-free battery cover and the stable display cover make it one of the currently most fashionable senior cell phones. A luxury model but also the S210 is not, of itself clear pressure point varies from button to button, the lighting is not very uniform. It can be life is good given the inherently large and clearly labeled buttons.

The menu in turn is largely self-explanatory. And for a senior mobile the Beafon S210 is downright lush equipped: it offers a camera, but only with 0.3 mega pixels resolution and can send pictures via MMS and receive.

The button is recessed into the housing that she safely operate even in hectic moments can be, but accidental triggering of the alarm in everyday life will hardly be visually discreet kept and so far. Then something happened, the Beafon S210 through an automatic question offers the possibility to cancel the alarm again.
