I'm looking for a rugged, waterproof phone that's simple, easy to use for calls and texting, excellent speaker-mic-reception, and larger than 2.4 screen, and super-long battery life.

My husband is not a senior; he's just fed up with technology. I need to find a solid phone that's easy to use and works well. It needs a flashlight. A camera would be useful, but lack thereof is not a deal breaker. HELP!!!

One of these should do it https://www.techradar.com/news/the-best-rugged-smartphones-of-2018

Not sure what you mean by simple, they are all Android based so as easy to use as any Android. Calls and Texting is just two buttons to hit, nothing fancy there. All can use a Flashlight app if not built in, and all have cameras. Just because a phone has many features does not mean you need to go try to use them all. Click the phone icon to call, click the text icon to text.

If you are looking for a basic phone, most are flip phones that would have small screens and no keyboard for easy texting, or are older phones using a dead OS like Blackberries and Symbian OS ones that are not going to have good support for service.
