A very good mobile solution

Doro 8030

from Coolsmartphone
I’ve got to be honest, I liked this. It’s not the chunky, slightly ugly phone I expected. It’s fairly slim, well designed and the friendly buttons up front work well. The remote management solution is great, the Doro support is great. The additional on-screen menus and the GUI alterations are done well. It’s a nice, welcoming place to be if you’re an elderly user or you’re just someone who doesn’t take to technology well... Full review

Best smartphone for seniors thanks to its simple software

Doro 824 SmartEasy

from PC Magazine
For first-time users and seniors, the Doro 824 SmartEasy on Consumer Cellular is an excellent option. Its physical controls, clearly labeled apps and icons with step-by-step explanations, and the My Doro Manager app make for an intuitive, comprehensive experience... Full review

Overall low spec at times leads to delays on loading apps

Doro Liberto 820 Mini

from Coolsmartphone

There are two ways of looking at the 820 Mini, it is either a rather underpowered Android smartphone that doesn’t really have any unique selling points bar the software or you could see it as a really great phone for the elderly, the technologically unsure or for a child. Doro have identified a huge range of use cases and have morphed the Android system to help the user get the job done quickly and easily.

The few weeks I had the 820 Mini for were great fun, mainly for me the Android power user trying to see just what I could get it to do. Yes at times things were frustrati... Full review

You really won’t find an easier smartphone to use

Doro Liberto 820

from Geek Squad
You really won’t find an easier smartphone to use than the Liberto 820, that’s something we can’t dispute. Even the most nervous of technophobes should be able to get to grips with it, and the option to have “helpers” remotely assist you is a great touch. If you’ve been looking to move to a smartphone but were worried about things being too complicated the Doro Liberto 820 should put your fears to rest... Full review

User-friendly and accessible mobile technology for all

Doro Liberto 820

from TrustedReviews

Whether you’re considering the Doro for yourself or a loved one, the first thing to consider is how tech-savvy they are. If we set an arbitrary scale of one to ten, where ten is Steve Wozniak and one is Fred Flintstone, we’d say the Doro Liberto 820 will be a boon to anyone from levels two to four. These people will probably get the most out of the Doro’s ease of use and, if they get stuck, a helper can always step in remotely to assist.

We’d still steer clear of it for total technophobes. The Liberto 820 does a lot, and despite the great job Doro has done... Full review

The very first Doro smartphone for seniors, packing a new easy-use Android

Doro Liberto 820

from Recombu

Doro's Liberto 820 is an excellent debut smartphone from the master of senior-friendly handsets. Android can appear horribly complex to smartphone virgins but Doro has extended almost every kind of assistance imagineable, from the reworked desktops and the bonus help features to the nifty bundled dock.

As for the standard smartphone features, Doro hasn't skimped there either. The 4.5-inch screen is sharp and bright and the 8-megapixel camera is surprisingly good, capturing sharp photos packed with detail.

If you have an elderly or infirmed relative who'd like a handset... Full review

Simplest user interface on any Android phone but not particularly powerful

Doro Liberto 810

from Geek Squad

The Liberto 810 offers a supremely accessible entry point for new users. The interface is simplistic but arguably this is one of the most successful implementations of Android yet. Too often with an Android phone, just when you’re getting comfortable, you accidentally blunder into a dark, unfurnished corner and have to fill in the gaps to find your way out. The Liberto 810 avoids this, and no matter where you go the friendly Doro interface is present.

One thing that always impresses me is attention to detail, and you can tell Doro has really thought about a phone’s de... Full review

Nice design with easy to use buttons but very slow and far too expensive

Doro Liberto 810

from TrustedReviews

It’s very hard to recommend the Liberto 810, particularly with its £150 price. The extremely capable Moto G, for example, can be bought for less than £100 and the difference in quality and specs between it and the Doro cannot be overstated. Couple the Moto G with a simple Android launcher like Wiser and you have a very capable and easy to use phone. Companies like Huawei and Acer also have simple versions of the UI baked into new phones.

Indeed, it's really hard to understand what Doro is trying to achieve here. It specialises in making simple phones and does th... Full review

A straight forward mobile with a large keypad

Doro PhoneEasy 515

from TrustedReviews
The PhoneEasy 515 may be a basic handset, but it's also one that's been nicely tailored to its target market. Doro has obviously spent a lot of time trying to make the phone as easy and hassle free to use, while adding in some useful features like the ICE contacts screen and the Assistance button on the rear. This attention to detail has paid off, as the 515 is definitely one of the better phones on the market that's aimed at seniors... Full review

Battery life? More like battery death.

Doro 5516

Battery died after 12 hrs even after no use at all, this is absolutely useless bought another just incase the battery was faulty but not, still 12 hours and dead. So useless it definitely is.

love the phone but battery charge dosent last long even with minimal usage

Iris

And you can't buy a replacement battery. I've searched the internet and Doro's own site - but nix! Frustrating!


Kevin

Battery life is crap. 15.8 days, phah. If I use the phone by lunchtime the next day it needs charging. Every day this week so far. Not good enough. My old Samsung would last a good week+ on a charge.

Goes flat after 4 days

Rubbish battery life. Tried new battery, exactly the same.

Yes, I am experiencing the same problem., fitted new battery but did not make a "gnats" difference.

Had the same problem with charging the 632 via the micro usb port, started using the cradle and the phone holds a charge for several days

Backlight/Display not continuous

Doro PhoneEasy 508

The display switches itself off after a pre-selected number of seconds which is hopeless as if you are not near when a call or text arrives you won't know as there is no indication visible on the screen until you unlock the keypad at some point in the future.

When phone turned off it loses the emergency assistance numbers.

Doro PhoneEasy 508

Just a cheap basic phone as the emergency assist is no good and will not work when needed. Make sure you do not have anyone relying on this function.

Very easily read screen and indicators

Purchased from O2 store. Set up and old sim inserted for me. Half an hour at home and I was competent. Good phone , good price and a great improvement on my aged Nokia.

Voicemail doesn't come with phone, bolt on's required, cannot call or txt abroad - more money. And takes £10 every month from you, just to keep you connected - even if you feel you haven't used that previous £10.....

I've only had this phone for a month but after reading other reviews here, I have another 30 days before the phones true colors show themselves. I do have a few disappointments already. Phone does not answer when flipped open, I have to manually press the green key to connect the call. I checked the manual to see if I could program it to do that, negative. Photo album / screen display keeps erasing itself, calendar doesn't have a seperate reminder ring tone for schedule appointments ectera. Last complaints are minor, so far, just an issue with call quality which supplier says is fixed with a signal reboot. I'll let you know if this is a tall tale to shut me up. If it is...it's back to my nemisis"Bell" Less

The alarm goes off even when it's not set, keys are sometimes hard to press, it doesn't tell you what time messages were sent, only when received, texting can sometimes be fiddly and a pain, unable to switch off the annoying tune when it is first switched on, etc, etc, and I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
