About this deal

At just 103g it is a light phone and feels great in the hand. Its curved edges and textured finish make it very comfortable to hold and ensure a firm grip so the device won’t be dropped.

Doro PhoneEasy® 100w is a cordless telephone with an easily read display and extra clear sound. It’s also equipped with large keys that make the telephone simple to use. This model is made entirely from plastic, so doesn’t exactly look classy. However, Doro has added a roughened texture to the top of the outer part of the phone and used a rubberized finish on the battery cover. Both help to make it pretty grippy to hold, which is important for its target audience. It’s fairly large too, measuring 100mm tall when closed and 190mm tall when open, but we don’t think this is a negative as it means there’s plenty of room for a large keyboard and screen. Aimed at its target audience of older users, a large button on the rear of the device can be used to text and call a preset list of emergency numbers with just one press of the button, should they need help. Providing a great tool for older people that live alone, a lanyard is included for keeping the phone close to hand at all times. We found voices came through loud and clear when making and receiving calls. And Doro has ensured this extra volume results in no sound distortion, with clear audio delivered at all times. In other respects the PhoneEasy 612’s specification is pretty modest. There are no internet or social media features, but you do get a calendar function and it has a built-in FM radio that you can use when the headset is attached. This has good reception and although it doesn’t have RDS it does allow you to save stations as presets and assign names to them.And if you ever do want to charge the device via Micro USB, the charging port is handily marked out by a triangular depression, making it very easy for anyone with restricted vision to easily locate it simply by touch.

The Doro PhoneEasy 612 is a clamshell-style smartphone that boasts a rear camera with a 2 MP resolution. Its display resolution is 320 x 240 pixels, and it does not have a touchscreen or external display. However, it does support flash cards, such as MicroSD (TransFlash), and its single SIM card capability is compatible with data networks like GPRS and GSM. Its 2G bands (primary SIM) support 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz.In fact, the buttons on the keypad are much larger than those on a normal phone and also have a more grippy finish to make them easier to press. Above the standard number keys Doro has added three shortcut buttons marked A, B and C, which can be assigned numbers for speed dialing friends, family or medical services. To make charging the battery easy you also get a handy charging cradle included, so you can drop the phone into the cradle to start the battery charging without having to connect the phone via cable. The phone’s menus add to its usability and are clear and easy to navigate, helping even the most technophobic user feel right at home and browse and customise the phone with speed and ease.
