Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm review

4.5/10 AVG.
RATING



4.5/10
Informr score
The Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm currently has an Informr score of 4.5 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 3 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

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.

Need to know: Doro PhoneEasy 410gsm

I bought this phone because it is simple to use and has an emergency call button that will text to up to five phone numbers. This is exactly what my very independent mother needs. The bonus is that she likes the phone. The only drawback with the phone is the adapter on the charger which is (unfortunately) very easy to lose. Otherwise, a good phone for the purpose. Less
