perfect mobile for non-smarties?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doro PhoneEasy 515 black (Accessory)
If like me you need a simple phone for calls and texts, your search ends here. This Doro comes close to perfection with utterly intuitive set-up and functionality, solid build quality, easy well-spaced keys and an authoritative screen to tell you what's going on.
Doro have a reputation for "senior" phones, but this one manages to avoid all impression of recent escape from an old folks' home. Indeed (as a businessman in Scotland) I have not the slightest fear of using this product amongst clients and colleagues who prefer smartphones.
Call log management is simply brilliant with all recent activity accesible by a single key.
The 2mp camera is not to be discounted as a useful extra - it is capable of producing really excellent images with the added flexibility of zoom and brightness/contrast adjustability.
Of course, you will also need to know the negatives about this product, although neither of these are sufficiently serious to downgrade my five-star rating
#1. The keypad is very sensitive to pressure, so even if keypad lock is set the phone will switch on from time to time in a pocket or handbag with an "unlock" alert. This will reduce battery life between charges.
#2. The phone has Bluetooth and pairs perfectly with my car system including SIM data transfer. However you do have to press a button on the phone to re-establish connection each time you get back into the car. Doro in both UK and Sweden (excellent customer service) know about this glitch and it will probably be sorted in future models.
In summary this remains my best mobile phone EVER since the death of my Nokia 3330!
