Tech companies have started to release devices for their very young market, as mobile phones for kids are on the rise in the industry. Here are some of them. In this modern generation, people have fully accepted that it’s completely normal for kids to have a phone. Not only does it serve as a means of communication with their parents, but it’s also their main source of information and entertainment.
Tech companies have introduced kid-friendly mobile phones with parental control features. Screen size and affordability are only some of the important points to consider when buying the right phone. But since kids are the main focus of these mobile phones, you have to include durability too.
Below are some of the hottest phones in the market for your young ones:
- iPhone SE
Coming from the tech giant, Apple, the iPhone SE is the smaller and more affordable version of one of the latest releases which is the iPhone 6s. It’s compact and light, but its performance should not be ignored.
Although it isn’t originally intended for the kiddy market, it has become the right phone for kids with all the amazing features such as 1.85 GHz dual-core processor, 2GB memory, 16 or 64 GB storage, and 12-megapixel main camera. It has the same user-friendly interface, protective and cute phone cases, and a battery life that can handle all the activities that a kid wants to do with his mobile phone.
2. BLU R1 HD
This mobile phone just feels solid and safe in your kid’s hands. For a price that won’t harm your pockets, it comes with 5.0-inch IPS LCD with 1280 x 720 resolution, 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, and options of 8GB or 16GB of storage.
Don’t worry because a microSD slot (up to 64GB) is available if your kid wants to download lots of mobile games and apps.
3. Moto G Play
A simple but probably the most kid-friendly mobile phone out there, the Moto G Play carries a quality 5MP camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and a 5.0-inch display.
It also comes with a splash-proof body, so you don’t have to worry when your kid wants to play mobile games by the pool or any place where the phone might be drenched in water.
But the best feature of this phone is that it allows you to activate parental controls since it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
4. Sony Xperia XA1
Sony didn’t come late for the game. They also introduced a phone that can be your kid’s very first. Its most unique design feature is that the screen has no side bezels. Your kid will surely appreciate a 5.0-inch display of his favorite mobile games and apps, and his mobile gaming experience will never be the same again.
It also has a good pair of cameras for his simple snapshots of family gatherings or selfies. Lastly, the Sony Xperia XA1 is capable of enabling parent control apps which you can download from the Google Play Store.
5. ZTE ZMAX Pro
ZTE is proud to say that they have the cheapest kid-friendly mobile phone in the market. At first look, you’ll immediately notice the 6.0-inch display that blends seamlessly with the phone’s color. They also thought about the situations where your kid wants to open multiple games and apps at the same time.
It has a built in 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and 2GB of RAM. It definitely doesn’t hurt that it has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
The internal storage is already huge at 32GB, but you can still expand that up to 128GB through the microSD.
The final decision on your kid’s mobile phone is still up to you. Make sure that you weigh all the pros and cons of each device and pick which one fits the activities of your kid.
Most of these mobile phones allow parental control so that you can protect your child from harmful and inappropriate materials available on the Internet.
