What is the Doro phone? 

Doro Mobile – The big button mobile

We have a lot of queries about the best phones for hard of hearing and dexterity.  We thought it might be beneficial to talk a little bit about the Doro mobile, as it is such a great example.  The Doro phone is a user-friendly mobile phone that appeals to those who are hard of hearing, have trouble with dexterity, vision impairment and ideal for the older generation who are active. 

They are designed and created with seniors in mind with a louder sound, large buttons, separated keys and digital hearing aid compatibility.  The Doro phone's main priority is to make life easier for the elder generation, giving them and the ones they love peace of mind.  However, they do also appeal to all ages as they are great for those who have difficulty with sight.  Bigger buttons allow for a more simple solution for communicating.

What’s so different about the Doro mobile phones for hard of hearing and difficulty with sight?

  • Large button mobile phone.
  • Fall alerts.
  • GPS integration – So family members can locate you if needed.
  • SOS button – You can contact your family and friends in case of an emergency.
  • Remote Assistance – For mobile phone assistance directly, like adjust your phone settings.
  • Responder smartphone app – For all additional features.
  • Easy set up.
  • Bluetooth connectivity (in some models).

Best Phone for Hard of Hearing - What type of phone is the Doro?

These mobiles offer the Android smartphone experience combined with an easy-to-use interface, built-in assistance and extra security safety features.  They started off with a lack of the innovative features you’d get with today’s smartphone, like touchscreen displays and high-res cameras – but they are what they are and provide a device that is great for calls and texts for active seniors.

The Doro mobile phones of today

Now Doro offers simple smartphones that give consumers the best of both, so you can now benefit from some smartphone features in a user-friendly package – making Doro phones a popular simple mobile phone brand.

How much do Doro phones cost?

In today’s market, Doro phones can cost from around £25 to £180 – it all depends on what you want and what you need your mobile phone for.  For instance, if you are wanting to link hearing aids you might be limited on what model you can go for, as not all will be compatible with all hearing aids and - more importantly - the devices you are currently wearing.

Is a Doro mobile phone worth it?

At the end of the day, like with a lot of technology, you have to way it all up.  What do you want from your phone? What do you need it for?  Do you find using modern smartphones difficult?  It is important to remember that sometimes the cheaper smartphones have numerous features that are tricky to use due to being a lower specifications option.

The best thing to do is visit a mobile phone store and have a look at their Doro phone options, as well as comparing them to a cheaper smartphone alternative.  Then ask a member of staff to go through some of the main features you’d use every day and see if the Doro phone is right for you.
