Snapfon ezTwo is not as huge as the giant smartphones, such as Samsung Galaxy S7. It is a bit smaller than iPhone 5. So, you can hold it by one hand. The plastic and sturdy body makes it hard to be broken even when it hits the pavement.
At the front face, there is a dominated, large and simple-to-push keypad. An audible feedback is given to you when you press the keypad to ensure you press the right number. Besides the huge keypad, there is an answer button together with an end call button. Below the 1.8x 1.5 inches full-color display screen with the resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, there are two selection keys and a selection rocker. Although the display is in full color, the phone numbers shown is in white on the black background. The high-contrast numbers make reading easily for seniors.
On the right side of Snapfon ezTwo, two sliders are equipped to open the LED flashlight and lock the keypad to prevent any accidental pressing on the keypad. On the left side, a volume rocker and a camera button are built.
As usual, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB port for charging and connecting to a computer are located at the bottom part. By removing the case, you can see a micro SD slot and a removable 1000 mAh Li-on battery inside the phone. The available internal storage of this simple phone is only 1.26 MB which can only store 1-2 low-quality image. If you want to take photos, an external micro SD card is a must to buy.
At the back of the phone, a large red SOS button is equipped for the emergency as well as a camera lens. When you hold the SOS button for a few second, you are connected to a trained OneCall Mobile Response Agent who is going to call the emergency call and the people you designated.

We, the EarSnail, concern this very much as the call quality would affect the communication quality. Snapfon ezTwo has an acceptable call quality. You can hear the voice clearly in relatively quiet places, such as parks and homes. However, due to the ordinary noise reduction, I can hardly hear the voice clearly. The phone receives all the traffic noises including the car engines’ sounds. Under normal usage, the call quality is acceptable.
Since the phone is designed as simple as possible, the camera is not a highlight of this phone. The 0.3-megapixel rear camera cannot capture a clear image. Of course, you cannot compare it with the smartphone flagship. The image quality is acceptable for sending messages.
It is great to the hearing-aid users. The Snapfon ezTwo is compatible with M3/T3 hearing aids. The T3 means you can hear the voice of call directly without the distortion of sound. It provides a much clear voice sound.
It can lasts for 3 hours and 35 minutes of talk time. It is enough for regular use.
