This is one feature that adds to superior convenience for senior citizens. The phone comes bundled with a cradle charger, which requires almost no effort when you have to put your phone on charge. Reminiscent of the cordless phone stand, the cradle allows users to put the phone on charge just by placing the device on the cradle stand. The cradle also doubles up as a phone stand which is a differentiating feature of the EasyFone Grand.
