Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only a 'Short-Life' battery. Forget charging it = zero.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had my Doro a couple of years now, and more than happy with it. Large keys good easy to see screen, simple to set up and use. Dislike the battery duration, seems way to short (Less than 2 days on standby) Camera isn't much good, but hey ho, didn't buy a phone for the camera! Will be buying another one soon as I qualify for "upgrade" So can have a fresh battery

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty camera twice! About to take the second one back. Each one has same fault - the camera does not hold colour so every other picture is pink.

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.
