***** Can read display easily & has useful features. Exceeds my expectations
I experienced the frustration of being unable to read my existing phone displays. I’m 49 now use reading glasses, but I dont always have them handy.
I went to every mobile phone shop in town looking for a simple phone; talk and text- that I could read. I did not need a smart phone with poor battery life, breakable etc, plus I spend too much time on the net already! I was told nothing existed and I would need an iphone. Even other smart phones you could increase text size, but the text input-box font was tiny! Useless!
I nearly didnt bother to go into the Optus shop as I thought it a waste of time. Well, I did & found the Doro 615. Needless to say I am thrilled to bits with it. The phone software is very nicely designed and has really useful features. Predictive text option allows use without my glasses. I use the smaller font option no problem! I wish more people knew of this phone as I know how frustrating my situation was.
The no-fuss emergency button on back panel, would make this phone ideal, e.g., for Gran who lives alone and has a fall. Even if she cant use the phone features she can press the button to get help; it inputs x3 numbers. This would give many elderly and relatives peace of mind. The phone comes with a detatchable lanyard.
Doro got it right, and the company (website) has a really good philosophy in trying to help others.
***** Good phone for someone legally blind
Looked for (literally) years for a mobile phone my legally blind mother can learn how to use without getting frustrated and giving up. Sure this has some features she can’t use like texting and for hard-of-hearing but lots of other people who need big keys would love those too.
My most ideal would be a mobile phone with no screen and more buttons but noone seems to have realised there is a niche (but sizeable) market crying out for this. Even a screen big enough just to show large numbers, coupled with large keys.
But this phone is by far and away the best I have seen, and after all it’s designed for a variety of disabilities not just sight, so I am happy to give it 5 stars – thank heavens for companies like Doro, and no I have no connection to them.
Now I just need to find a mobile plan (pre- or post-paid) that is just for phone calls – any that don’t include data allow for hardly any phone calls but all bundle in sms which is useless for us so is wasted money. The only calls-only plan I have seen makes you sign up on Facebook first which we absolutely do not want to do.
*****Simple to use and user friendly
We bought this phone for my husband who just wanted a basic phone and got frustrated with technology. He finds this very easy to read, simple to set up and has been using it much more than any previous phone. He has even gone back to texting which he gave up in frustration on previous phones. Would recommend this for anyone who just wants to make calls, send and receive texts and take an occasional photo.
