Informr score
The Doro PhoneEasy 612 currently has an Informr score of 5 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 2 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

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.
