Upon opening the box, you can easily tell for whom the Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm is designed. Its large keys, sturdy body, and large display font are ideal for kids and the elderly if they want an easy to use basic handset with a friendly user interface. The phone offers no more than simple call and text functionality.
The clamshell design of the Easy 410gsm may be unusual but its durable plastic case leaves room for the large 34 X 42 mm display and large separated dial and menu keys. Because the handset has a high hearing aid compatibility rating of M3/T3, elderly users won't experience any kind of sound distortion or feedback when calling.
Although designed primarily for calling and SMS, users won't be totally bored with this handset thanks to on-board FM radio functionality. In addition, it is preloaded with games to keep you entertained while waiting in line or letting idle time pass by. Battery life is also impressive and should let you squeeze out more than 8 hours of talk time.
Overall the Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm is a very suitable phone for the elderly. Its features and design are primarily intended for older folks who want to connect with friends, relatives, or call for immediate medical assistance in an emergency situation.
