The no-frills handset, known as ‘My Phone’, costs £55 and comes in a variety of colours with a range of flexible 30-day rolling price plans.
I really appreciate the simplicity of the handset which lists the names of up to 8 contacts in large, easy to read text and it is especially useful for those with impaired vision. I also think it is wonderful for someone of any age with dementia as the only other buttons on the phone are clearly labelled ‘answer’ and ‘on/off’, for simple, straightforward use.
These phones are also perfect for anyone with arthritic fingers who would struggle to use a small keyboard.
Need to call more numbers ?
If only being able to call 8 numbers is restrictive Doro offer a range of large button, simple to use mobile phones.
Here are a few of the most popular models.
This is the Doro Phone Easy 612 which is a stylish and durable clamshell mobile phone for answering and ending calls with a simple flip and an easy to use camera. It is also compact in size but large enough to comfortably to handle. This model also features additional functionality in the way of calculator, FM radio, dial up safety alarm, key tone, calculator, games, calendar with reminder, daily reminder, wake up alarm.
For someone wanting a larger mobile phone with bigger buttons there are many to choose from and it boils down to personal preference.
