The Geemarc CL8500 is a very easy to use bit of kit designed for those who want something nice and simple.

Although it can be charged via a USB cable the manufacturer has included an easy to use charging dock. The dock makes use of the charging cable and can be left in place plugged into the wall, the CL8500 just slips into the dock and charges via a couple of contact points, brilliant for anyone that struggles with fiddly tasks such as plugging in a USB cable.

Another handy feature is a couple of LEDs built in to the top that can be turned on to act like a torch.

Geemarc CL8500 Mobile

The Geemarc CL8500 features a clamshell design that is light and sturdy in the hand, with a screen on the front for notifications. There’s a call answer and reject button so the user doesn’t have to worry about quickly opening the mobile to answer a call.

When opened up there is a second screen on one half and nice large buttons on the other half. The menu is kept simple and uncluttered and if giving this to someone who isn’t too technical I’d recommend getting it all setup before handing it over, for example setting up emergency contacts, setting up the quick contacts or adding photos to the phonebook so it’s easy to see who you are dialing.

As you can see in the video there’s an SOS button on the back, a really great feature that means this mobile doubles up as an alarm that can alert those nearby that someone needs help.

This mobile has been design with a specific type of user in mind and it shows in the great build quality and range of features.
