Designed for Simplicity
As with all Doro products, ease-of-use and simplicity were the main aims of the design, making the phone ideal for seniors, the elderly, and anyone who would rather avoid the complex nature of modern smartphones. This simplicity is thanks to the EVA system that organises all of the phone's functions in a simple, easy-to-understand home screen. Users will be able to select whether they want to send a message, make a call, or view any of the phone's features without confusion.
How Loud is the Doro 8050 Smartphone for Seniors?
One of the main complaints with mobile phones is their lack of volume, which is solved with this mobile's extra-loud 35dB earpiece, which makes it over six times louder than a standard phone! The Doro 8050 is also full hearing aid compatible, allowing you to clearly hear all calls and audio through your hearing aid. Hearing aids can be connected in seconds, and step-by-step connection instructions are provided in the user manual included with the phone, and also provided near the bottom of this page.
Is the Screen Easy to Read?
Mobile phones are also notorious for dull screen and tiny text, which is another aspect that puts the Doro 8050 head and shoulders above the competition. It features a large 5.45" (13.8cm) screen with high-contrast colours, and is set as standard with extra-large text. If you'd like, the text can be easily adjusted to be even bigger for those with severe visual impairment.
How Does the Doro 8050 Keep Me Safe?
To ensure a quick response in case of emergencies, this mobile features an assistance button on the rear which, when pressed, notifies your top contacts and automatically sends them your current location using GPS. Once the alert is sent, your contacts can accept the alert and instantly speak to you through the phone's extra-loud hands-free speakerphone. This is an excellent feature for providing peace of mind both to you and your loved ones.
Is the Doro 8050 Senior Smartphone Easy to Set Up?
To make your initial setup as stress-free as possible, this phone will guide you through the process with every step. It will explain everything from how to swipe and scroll to how to set your font size and connect to your email account, making sure that all the features are well explained and ready to use at your fingertips.
What If I Get Confused While Using the Phone?
Using a smartphone for the first time can be daunting, but don't worry – Doro is here to help. If you ever get stuck, simply press the phone's 'Help' button, and the EVA system will instantly help to guide you through whatever you'd like to do.
Does the Phone Feature a Camera?
Not only does this phone feature a camera, it's designed with two high-resolution cameras to allow you to take incredibly clear and colourful pictures! At the rear is an ultra-sharp 15 Megapixel camera to allow you to take the best photos, and a 5 Megapixel front-facing camera is also included for high-quality selfies.
How Durable is the Doro 8050 Amplified Mobile Phone?
Drops happen, which is why the Doro 8050 is built to last with built-in screen protection. A raised bevel edged is designed to prevent the screen from coming into contact with the ground during most drops, helping to keep your phone healthy and uncracked for longer. While no mobile phone is invincible, the tough design of the Doro Smartphone for the Elderly is certainly an improvement on the flimsy designs of most manufacturers!
How Fast is This Smartphone?
With a 1.3GHz processor speed, this phone will switch between tasks and complete everything instantly with snappy speed. It's also able to connect to the fastest 4G networks, allowing you to browse the internet quickly and efficiently.
How Long Does the Battery Last?
The Doro 8050 Senior Smartphone is supplied with a powerful battery that will provide 13 hours of talking time. It features remarkable standby time, and will last up to 330 hours on standby with a single charge.
How Much Storage Does the Doro 8050 Include?
Allowing you to store countless photos and videos, the Doro 8050 Amplified Phone is supplied as standard with 16GB of onboard storage. It also includes a Micro SD slot, allowing you to add a memory card for additional storage space if you wish.
Can I Download More Apps?
Yes, smartphone apps can be downloaded to this phone via the Android operating system, as is standard with smartphones. This allows you to customise the phone for both accessibility and convenience.
What Kind of SIM Card Does This Mobile Use?
This phone is designed to use a Nano SIM, which is the standard SIM card used with most mobile phones. Simply insert the Nano SIM provided by your mobile service provider and you should be ready to go.
