Unlike any other smartphone this Monqi phone is specially designed for children and to keep them safe as you introduce them to the online world. From the outside it’s just like any other smartphone, it has sleek and stylish good looks, an easy to use interface, a front and rear camera and a 5 inch HD display, it’s just like yours, making it desirable to kids. The inside is what makes it desirable to parents, it has special Monqi software which can’t be turned off or deleted. This unique software gives two smartphones remote control over the Monqi phone, so both mum and dad can keep track at the same time and no one has to be the bad guy.
There’s plenty to keep them occupied, the Monqi phone has its own Jungle store with over 700 child friendly apps to choose from, and if you have an app you deem appropriate, that’s unavailable on the Jungle Store, you can install it from Google Play on your child’s behalf. You’ll be able to monitor your child’s screen time, see what they’re searching for, how long they’re spending on games and apps and even set time restrictions or lock the phone completely when it comes to bedtime and homework, it also comes in handy if you’ve grounded them.
Monitor calls and see text messages, set an allowance for how many minutes and texts they can use a day, there’s no risk of running up a hefty bill. View their contact list and if you don’t approve you can delete contacts, it’s a great way to monitor for cyber bullying. You’ll be able to track your child on a map, see where they’ve been and even get notifications when they enter a specified zone on the map. It comes in ideal for alerting you when they arrive home or if they’ve gone somewhere they shouldn’t have. The phone benefits from a large 1950mAh battery which gives it an impressive 96 hour standby time and average talk time of 7 hours, making it easier for you to keep in touch at all times.
The Monqi phone is the perfect compromise. It gives your child the gadget and independence they’ve been begging for, yet you get full control, plus you get your own phone back without a flat battery and sticky fingerprints.
