Doro HandlePlus 334gsm: a Simple Cell Phone for Seniors with Alarm Functions

In my last post, I blogged about the new Doro phones from Consumer Cellular. That entry inspired me too look into Doro and see if this company has manufactured other phones that would be great cell phones for seniors.

A look at the company's website indicates that it is dedicated to manufacturing easy to use mobile phones. Their philosophy dictates that a cell phone should be "easy enough for anyone to use, and still be good-looking".

I found the Doro HandlePlus 334gsm on of the company's basic phones. Let's see if this handset is truly ideal for senior citizens.

The Doro HandlePlus 334gsm is extremely easy to use. This cellphone for the elderly only have a few buttons so memorizing all the controls is quick and easy. For instance, one press of a button can allow a user to answer incoming calls and place a call to emergency services.

This basic handset has four memory buttons with name index which can be programmed to four emergency numbers. The user may make a voice call or send an SMS to the four contacts.

The DoroHandlePlus 334gsm mobile phone for seniors also sports a simple but easy to read display. It is backlit and has large fonts. The handset is also covered with soft touch coating for better grip.

Here are the remaining key features for this simple cell phone for seniors:
  • Two-way speakerphone
  • Backlit keypad
  • One-press alarm dial-up
  • Vibrating ring tone
  • Doro Audio Plus
  • HAC (hearing aid compatible)
  • Tri-band GSM
  • SAR (900MHz/1800MHz) 0,521/0,159
That's it for this entry on the DoroHandlePlus 334gsm cell phone for seniors. Expect to see more posts on Doro basic phones in the near future.
