Photos: Doro's simple, easy-to-use mobile phones
Hello! No these aren't Dom Jolly stunt phones. The HandlesEasy 326gsm and the HandlePlus 324gsm are easy-to-use handsets aimed at people who want the absolute basics
The HandleEasy 326gsm might look like a toy phone, but it's actually specifically designed to be easy to use. Aimed at technophobes and the short-sighted, this handset is ideal for anyone fed up with over-featured mobile phones that deliver too many bells and whistles but fail to deliver in the calling department.
All you get is a massive keypad, a monochrome backlit display, memory for up to 50 numbers, speakerphone mode, vibrating alert and four speed-dial keys right underneath the screen. Battery life stands at around 160 hours standby time and 140 minutes talk time.
It doesn't have a camera, Web browser, MP3 player or expandable memory card slot -- but that might be just what you're looking for. We've been testing the HandlesEasy 326gsm for a few days and it does what it says on the tin. You can buy it for around £85 from doromobile. Click through for more doro phones.
Even simpler than the HandlesEasy 326gsm, the HandlePlus 324gsm doesn't have a keypad or even a screen, it just has 5 keys that you can pre-programme to dial particular numbers.
Obviously not a phone designed for the masses, this handset is useful if you want to give it to someone to use in emergencies or someone who absolutely hates modern technology. Frankly, it's so simple, a dog could use it.
You can buy one for around £68 from doromobile and it comes with a lanyard, so the user can hang it around their neck.
We were very impressed with the HandlesEasy 326gsm and HandlePlus 324gsm, for their simple designs and large, easy-to-use keys. Definitely worth having a look at if you need something utterly straightforward. -Andrew Lim
