Here are three ways in which the physical buttons of the Mudita Pure beat the virtual buttons of a touchscreen smartphone:
- Permanent Impairment: The blind and visually impaired can dial without guessing at button location on a touchscreen and can dial quietly by not having to speak into a speech-to-text dialer.
- Personal Preference: Some people simply prefer physical buttons to touchscreen buttons.
- Emergency Impairment: Someone with bleeding hands can still dial for emergency service.*
*That last benefit comes from a news story about a man whose hands were injured in an accident. He could not dial his touchscreen smartphone because his hands were bleeding so profusely that the touchscreen did not recognize his screen taps.
