Our fave from Troomi's lineup is the Samsung A13 5G. It's perfect for kids who like to take pics, whether it's selfies or more artistic shots. They'll love the triple-lens rear camera, featuring a 50MP main lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Plus, there's the standard 5MP front-facing camera for selfies.
Or, your child might prefer the camera options on the Samsung A13 LTE: a 50MP main lens, 5MP wide-angle lens, and 8MP front-facing selfie cam. Parents usually prefer this model too since it's the most affordable option from Troomi.
Finally, there's the selfie-taker's dream in the Samsung Xcover Pro: it has a 13MP front-facing camera, but the rear-facing camera is less impressive at 25MP in the main lens. But it does have an 8MP wide-angle lens too. It's the only waterproof (up to 4.5 feet) option available from Troomi, and it's also the most expensive at nearly $400.
Like Pinwheel, Troomi's KidSmart OS is designed to grow with your child. It has no internet browser by default, but with the Discover plan (about $30/mo.) you can add the KidSmart Safe Browser if you feel like your child is ready for a little more online freedom.
You can also manage their contacts in the beginning and then ease up your involvement as they get older. We like that you can limit the Troomi phone to text-only messaging or allow group chats and photo messages. You get to read the full content of all texts too.
There's no app store on a Troomi phone, but you can add some kid-friendly apps to your child's phone through the parental portal. There aren't as many apps to choose from compared to Pinwheel, but you can view a full list on the Troomi website before you buy. This feature requires the Discover plan too.
