Super cheap smartphone for seniors

For many retirees, the latest iPhone or Samsung is either priced well out of their reach or simply an unnecessary expense. For $79, you can now get your hands on a brand new smartphone.

Available at all Kmart stores Australia-wide for $79, or $99 from Optus stores, the Optus X Spirit 4G is an affordable no-frills budget smartphone for pre-paid users.

Operating on the Android 6.0 operating system, this smartphone features a 5MP rear camera as well as 2MP front-facing camera. The quad core 1.1GHz processor and 1GB ram is more than enough to run this smartphone at the optimum speeds required.

Users will have access to all the Google Play apps available to smartphone users on $1000+ smartphones.
