Ummm. It totally is. Older people who have no tech sense, I mean ones that can't even barely check for emails or have to have help even setting one up, will choose the iPhone. Its either that or a dumb phone. But that's starting to change since iPhone is becoming more and more like Android with each update.

Which, if any, support VoLTE? Or will they all be out of date when 2G and 3G go away?

All you young whippersnappers will be singing a different tune in a few years. Karma's a bi*ch.

No worries, dude.
You're using Windows Phone, so you're already 401 ready for the nursing home.
I mean, really, old folks hate all these wild apps, so no cares with WP...it's short about a million or so against Android and iOS...

Using WP because I actually work for a living and I'm responsible for 30 techs under me. I don't have time to kill flying pigs, tweet about the Kardashians or watch Jackass on YouTube. In my day, we played football without pads. I would have loved to see you candyass kids try to make it one day without your PlayStations. Now get out of the basement, mommy's got breakfast ready.

Since you're old, you clearly must work for Microsoft, as nobody there gets what the f**k is going on in the real world (see: Windows 8), so you're not "hip" and clearly high off the sh*t they give you guys at the office.
Get over yourself, not everyone is doing the sh*t you say, especially living in parent's basements.
If you want to speculate, fine. I speculate you're in your fifties and have never touched a woman in your life and you live alone. You're probably into dudes, still hiding behind closet doors, and you come here to pull off to darkk's picture, the badgering is just gravy...

Not in the tech field, I actually help save lives which is much more important and more rewarding than you'll ever fathom. Been married to the same woman for 25 years and before her, let's just say I'm lucky my Johnson didn't fall off. The way you speak of guys, your latent homosexual tendencies are clearly showing. I'm Cuban so I can't help being superior to your scrawny ass in every facet of life, especially the ladies. Oh that's right, you like packing fudge.

Aw, poor little pussygirl upset? Call one of your "friends" and go for a ride in his SAAB convertible. Pick up a cappucino and I'm sure you'll feel better.
Tell me when you've had enough. It'll be like this all day long, blood clot.

I am looking for a SMARTphone for my grandaunt. She doesn't want to use a regular cell phone, or flip phone.
She wants a screen above 4.5", awesome call sound/speaker sound, stable, good battery, and at an affordable price. (She has AT&T so, GSM please) She never uses apps besides texting, calling, email and google maps... So a powerhouse is not neccessary... affordability is very important.
She has the Galaxy S III Mini, and she hates it. Buggy, speakers very low and cuts out/fades out randomly.
I thought the Moto G 2014 or HTC Desire 610 were perfect matches... but call sound wasn't that great when I tried them out comparing to her S III mini. (They were both terrible)
Any other suggestions?
I'll be checking out the LG G Vista when I have a free day.

Maybe the best is an old phone like
Alcatel One Touch Idol -- Samsung Galaxy s3 --HTC One X+ -- Google Nexus 4 -- LG Optimus L9 -- Sony Xperia SP
Phones from Meizu - Lenovo - Blu .etc could be excellent cheap phones too.

this models are good for elder people ,with big button and big letter
on the screen ,more importantly they are easily operated for elderly .
but their price is a little expensive ,compared with the one i am using now ,
bought from kingsbuying
