Some people like to have today’s latest whiz bang gadget features on their cellphones. Others prefer to live a much simpler lifestyle, relying on phones mainly as communication devices and nothing more. There was a time when all phones were meant to be used solely for messaging and phone calls. The Doro PhoneEasy 612 is a throwback to that time.
Its main features include a 2.3-inch QVGA screen that’s quite large for its size, a 2MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0, an FM radio, support for microSD cards, and up to 12 hours of talk time on a single charge. Obviously it has a very basic set of features. And that’s part of why it can be a very useful handset.
Because of its limited feature-set, it’s very easy to use. Plus, its alphanumeric keypad comes with large keys and even includes a number of special shortcuts to make using it as easy as possible. If you’ve don’t care at all to have today’s latest cellphone features, this model certainly belongs in your pocket.

Unlike a lot of handsets aimed at seniors, the Doro PhoneEasy 612 is more than just a very basic mobile phone. Instead this handset has been properly crafted from the ground up to make it as easy as possible to use. Its menu system is very straight forward, the keypad is big and roomy and there are some good features such as the emergency assistance button on the rear. As such, we think it's a good choice for those who, for one reason or another, just can’t get on with many of today's more advanced mobile phones.Less
