Review: Doro phoneEasy 410gsm
This phone is idea for the elderly people who are looking for a good basic and easy to use mobile phone.
The beauty with this phone is, its also m3/t4 hearing aid compatible
I have to say the style and design on this phone is out standing
The phone has a large keypad with separated keys, clear and simple menus, its color display with a display size of 34×42 and resolution of 176×220.
It has large text on the keypad for easy dialing and messaging plus a clear and extra loud handset volume (+35dB) with a speaker phone and vibrating function as well as being Bluetooth enabled
Other features include, 2 status lights (1 for new messages and 1 for low battery), dedicated Silent key and dedicated emergency function key, which we will come back to later on
You even get a neck loop, so you can hang the phone around your neck.
(which is a nice touch by Doro to include)
All the keys on the keypad are back-lit too.
The Standby time on this phone is up to around 280 hrs and a Continuous Talk Time of up to 240 minutes
Now if we go into the menus you will see its colored and also each menu not only tells you the name of the menu but also a nice photo too, like with the phonebook it not only says phonebook but also shows you a photo of a phonebook.
Phonebook, where you can add a contact, which you can store around 300 contacts each contact with 3 different number, like mobile, home office.
you can also select a contact to call from the phonebook and which number to call for your contact.
Then we have:
Messages, where you can write or read a text message, but also with this model(410gsm) you can also receive photos (MMS)
Call Log, where you can see all the call logs made and received
Alarm, Where you can set a wake-up alarm
Calendar, where you can view and add tasks
Calculator, where you can do some sums
FM Radio, where you can listen to the radio using the included headphone (which is also you hands free handset)
Settings, where you can change the settings on the phone.
Games, where you can play 2 games, Robot or ufo
In the settings you can also change stuff like wallpaper, ring and messaging tones, alert type & volume
Also in the settings is where you can setup your emergency functions as i mentioned earlier on.
Now the emergency functions is where you setup a pre-written text message and up to 5 phone numbers and then once you activated the emergency functions by pressing the key quickly 2 times, it will then make a loud sound and then it send that pre-written text message to the 5 phone numbers, then it will start to call the 5 phone numbers one at a time until someone answers the phone or until you cancel the emergency functions
Which i think the emergency functions is a great added on for the doro phone
Over all this phone is GREAT and i do recommend this to older people that are looking for a good basic mobile phone and something that is compatible with m3/t4 hearing aids.
I also like to thank the pr team for sending me this to review.
