The following lines detail some technical aspects of the Telefunken TM3690 cosi terminal. This terminal includes some features that are closer to a Smartphone such as the possibility of internet connection or access to certain social networks. At the same time, it incorporates some important features in a mobile phone for the elderly such as the SOS button, the charging base or the large and contrasting keys.

Buttons and physical appearance

The terminal has large keys with contrast and flip screen.

As for the robustness in its manufacture we must point out that some parts such as the flip-up screen seem weaker than in some other models we have tested.

As a highlight, the phone has a side volume control button, M1 and M2 frequent number memorization keys, exclusive camera and social network keys, and a flashlight on / off switch.

In addition, on the outside it has light signaling for WhatsApp, missed call and battery charge.

The phone thanks to its folding mode has a large screen compared to other models for adults.

Menu and text

Although the phone is simple in its physical part thanks to its large keyboard and screen, the interaction in one of its menus is complex.

The maximum font size is acceptably large and can be configured.

SOS button

The terminal has a discreet and easy to press SOS button.

Pressing this button, if configured correctly, a help message will be sent and a trusted contact will be called.

In addition, if activated in the configuration, a strong alarm tone is played to alert around you.

The button has responded reliably during our tests.

SMS and calls

Frequently used numbers work well by continuously pressing the M1 and M2 keys, allowing calls without entering the menus that can be somewhat more complex.

The call volume is adequate and you can activate the speakerphone easily.

The level of coverage for both calls and 3G could present a problem in remote areas.

Sending an SMS as well as other features on this phone is not something simple and requires a learning time. This shows us one thing that we have observed in several terminals, despite the complexity of the touch screens for older people, many times the menus of the phones with this type of screens are more intuitive than those of the phones adapted to a physical keyboard .

Camera

The camera is worth to record video and take pictures. It is one of the easiest features to use and has a dedicated button on the keyboard, but it could have a somewhat higher resolution for the price of the terminal.

Manual

The product incorporates a manual, but the lyrics are very small.

FM radio and audio playback

Within the multimedia menu we can find the FM radio

The FM radio tunes well although it is necessary for its operation the connection of headphones with microphone and Jack connection that are attached in its box.

It is possible to listen to the radio through the speaker but always with the connected headphones that work as an antenna.

It is also possible to record audio from the radio.

In addition, within the multimedia menu there is another functionality that allows the storage and listening of audio files.

Charging base

The charging base fits very well in the terminal, it is important to make sure that the phone is charged through the exterior LED indicator.

Battery

The battery has a capacity of 1000 mAh but they do not give as much of themselves as in other phones since this has a high consumption perhaps due to its color screen and the use of Wifi and 3G.

Aditional storage

The product incorporates a 1GB SD card useful for storing photos, videos or music. The maximum allowed is 32 GB.

Conectivity

The phone has 3G and Wifi connectivity that allow the use of social networks and internet. Bluetooth connectivity is also incorporated.

Internet and social networks

The phone incorporates internet access through 3G or Wifi so it allows browsing and use of some social networks such as WhatsApp or Facebook.

It has an old version of WhatsApp that must be updated, for which it is necessary to activate the mobile data connection or add a Wifi connection.

At this point it is important to note that for the cursor to appear on the screen it is necessary to press the number 5 on the keyboard where the cursor arrow icon appears.

It can be a bit complex in general to move with the virtual mouse cursor but it is better to do it without its activation since this option does not go well on the buttons on the screen.

Through social networks you can receive and view photographs.

Flashlight, calendar, alarm and others...

The terminal includes an LED flashlight that has a dedicated side switch for switching on.

In addition, the phone incorporates another series of interesting features such as a unit converter, world clock, stopwatch, notepad and task manager

Accessibility          

The fact of including large keys with contrast has been taken into account. The text within the menus is relatively large with configurable size.

It does not have a screen reader.

It has compatibility for HAC headphones.

Conclusion

The Telefunken TM360 Cosi phone incorporates more advanced features than other terminals for older people, including Internet access and social networks. The terminal presents another series of very interesting functions for the elderly such as the SOS button, charging station or numeric keypad. In general, the terminal contributes a lot, although it also has a higher price than other terminals. The main drawback lies in the complexity of interacting with its menus.
