Doro PhoneEasy 618 (Consumer Cellular)

The Good The Doro PhoneEasy 618 is extremely user-friendly, has a handful of useful tools, and an external display.

The Bad The PhoneEasy 618's flush keypad can be hard to press and battery life was disappointing.

The Bottom Line Designed with seniors in mind, the Doro PhoneEasy 618's not only an affordable buy, but it also includes a few extras without skipping over the essentials.

Reasonably priced and exceptionally easy to use

Doro, a phone manufacturer that tailors its products to seniors, told me recently that designing a senior device isn't as easy as it looks. In addition to a strong call performance, the handset also has to be user-friendly both in its physical design and user interface.

But if its newest feature phone, the Doro PhoneEasy 618, is any indication, Doro is doing a great job at providing simple and comfortable devices for seniors.

Not only is PhoneEasy 618 equipped with many of the basics you'd expect from any phone, but it also has a handful of useful tools that allow you or your loved one access to important information and emergency services. Priced at $60, the device will be available online on December 10 and at select retail stores on January 2013.
