Doro 6520 is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for it's intended user I bought this handset for my elderly father who has never owned or used a mobile phone before and who suffers from failing eyesight and ill health. He only needs to use it to receive and make calls and the occasional text message. Simplicity, ease of use and a decent standby time were paramount. No need for touchscreens, complicated menus, apps, etc. This handset fits the bill perfectly. I had read varying reviews of this handset and it appears that some people fail to understand who this handset is designed for. Just take a little time to read the instructions and you'll find a multitude of options designed to tailor the handset to exactly to what you need. The easy to use emergency assistance button is a great feature - one press and the handset will automatically go to speakerphone and start calling a list of 5 nominated people, as well as sending an automated help text message. There is even a ICE (in case of emergency) option where info on health conditions, medication and doctors details can be found by emergency responders. All in all a simple handset offering features that if the worse comes to the worst, may just prove to be life-saving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone all round I purchased this for my Dad as a birthday present a couple of months ago and he's never been happier with any phone he's had. It's exactly what he wanted and ticks all the boxes. He's been showing it off to everyone he speaks to and is very proud to have such a great phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the over 70’s Bought few months ago and best decision i made to help my dad get this. He cannot cope with modern technology and this phone has calendar, alarms, able text and phone and he loves the flip facility to place in his poket easily without accidently calling 999. Also being on EE deal at £5/mth he gets 300 texts and 150mins and every 3 mths ability to up either texts or mins.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USELESS BATTERY This phone has a battery that is ok for a week or 2 then suddenly starts to loose battery life. This has happened with 3 models I've had. Carphone warehouse said to come back if-I did and found them useless despite insuring it. The battery lasts one day, if you are lucky. I have never had this problem with a make of phone before. It is a shame too as I am nearly 66 and it is easy to use, see and hear. I thought it was because it is a cheap phone however a friend told me it happened with her inphone.
