Review made by a non tech savy user

I think most of us came to a point in our life when we had to recommend a tablet/smartphone to someone who never used a smartphone or a tablet and is not tech savy user. Like our parents.

So here begs a question: could you guys make a review of most popular platforms/phones/tablets that are made by power users.

Because things I look at smartphone are quite different to those my parents are looking at. And I have no idea if they will find UI friendly, disorientating or easy to use...

Frankly I need something my parents can use without asking me every living second of mine how to use this and that app and things like that.

Review by someone with basic computer skills would be great. What do you think, is this something you could give a chance?
