The Doro 6620 is one of Doro’s latest plain and simple mobile phones. It proved to be a breath of fresh air for the whole time I used it. Smartphones have become a way of life for many people nowadays. Yet there are still many who simply want a phone that is compact, easy to use, and which offers loud and clear voice communication.
Without sacrificing a decent camera, the Doro 6620 offers a mobile phone without all the hundreds of features, settings and distractions that a new modern smartphone offers. Yet there is still an organiser, a diary/calendar, an FM Radio, weather update, a calculator and even a few games (remember ‘Snake?)
It has a clean and simple numeric keypad that is easy to see, and feels solid and satisfying. The volume and clarity of voice calls exceeds any smartphone I’ve used. It is loud, crystal clear and is even hearing-aid compatible.
It is a flip-phone or clamshell design which is very compact. Perfect for slipping into a small handbag or waist pocket.
For those who may need assistance, the Doro 6620 has a simple ‘Assistance’ button. When pressed, it will send a message to a designated number. It gives a GPS position reference so that help can be arranged immediately.
I was really taken by how simple, intuitive and easy this little phone was to use. Moreover, it made me realise that there’s actually more to do out there than keeping your head buried in a mobile phone screen. It frees up your attention span and lets you focus on other important things without losing touch.
Another great little feature is the charging dock. Beats fiddling around with the Micro USB plug every
night week. (stunning battery life!!!)
It’s a thoroughly attractive and competent phone for those who aren’t concerned with the need for apps and unnecessary features, and all at an attractive low price. I was very impressed!
This phone is compact and easy to use but has a major flaw. It’s impossible to set up a Virgin Media account on the phone. If you have such an account, look elsewhere for a phone.
