I bought this for my 92 year old grandmother for Christmas (who is not technologically savvy at all), and she absolutely loves it! She video calls us almost every day, calls my cousin in England, checks the weather every hour, asks for updates on the hockey game... even played herself some music when we were over for New Years! She screen is a great size for her to be able to see it clearly, and it has great sound. I also hooked it up to my account so I am able to load pictures for her as her screen saver, which she loves.
We are both very happy with the purchase, would absolutely recommend!
