Jeez people, buy some decent iPhones. An iPhone is perfect for older folks because of its ease of use.
That might be OT but:
Besides that, I wanted a Mac for my whole life. When I could finally afford one in March of 2009 I went for an iMac. It served me well up until last summer when a really good offer on the latest 27'' model appeared. In the same 8 years before my first Mac I went through 3 shitty Windows lap tops. I could have done another three years easily on the 2009 iMac.
In the meanwhile the whole family is on iPads, MacBook Airs and iPhones. If you´re not a tekkie the ease of use is unbeatable. Never had a problem with any of it (Disclaimer: I´m an AM in CCM-Solutions-Providing and have to use Windows machine for some work related stuff - but we have a "bring your own device policy").
I´m not an Apple fanboy and bide my time until I can lay my hands on some decent used stuff and wouldn´t camp in front of a store, but I wouldn´t touch a Samsung phone. My mom bought some android pos three years ago - and it just sucked big time. When she finally bought a 5 SE her life became a lot easier.
Practice cures most tone issues.
