Question Basic mobile phone for parents.

Parents currently use an old Samsung A411 nextG/3G flip phone that looks like it on its way out. Could be battery. Not sure. Anyway they want me to look for a replacement.

Phone will be mostly used for making and receiving calls, texting and bluetooth for connecting to car head unit. So nothing fancy needed. Not sure if they need 4g but maybe for future proof incase 3g ever gets turned off in a few years.

Any suggestions on entry level phone to suit them would be appreciated.

Do they want to continue with the flip format with hardware buttons? Or are they ready to move to a full touch screen phone?

Don't mind touch screen but think hard buttons may be better. But will likely consider both.
