Doro’s new smartphone now available for O2 customers


  • The two companies have launched the latest Doro 8050 smartphone on the O2 network
  • The update will keep O2 customers connected throughout the UK


London, 17th August 2020: Doro, the leading global supplier of telecommunication solutions for seniors, and UK telecoms provider, O2, have launched the latest Doro 8050 smartphone on the O2 network. The move will give O2 customers access to Doro’s unique and inclusive technology.


The Doro 8050 is available now via O2 UK from £20.98 per month for 1GB of data. The handset blends Doro’s sleek, Scandinavian design perfectly with the brand’s proven usability. By introducing the device to its range, O2 is putting a leading model in inclusive phones into the hands of its customers.


Peter Marsden, Managing Director, Doro UK and Ireland said: “We’re excited to be working with our long-time partner, O2, to launch the new handset on its network. The key functions and operating concept of the Doro 8050 smartphone make it ideal for the needs of O2 UK customers over the age of 65 – a demographic that many phone manufacturers tend to neglect.”


Doro 8050: Easy-to-use, high performance smartphone


The Doro 8050 is the perfect device for every senior – from those familiar with Android, to those who have never owned a smartphone. The phone combines a classic Android look and feel with innovative UI and UX changes, tailored for older users. These include adding clear labels to each icon, step-by-step navigation, a single homepage and much more. Actions are clear and navigation is straightforward – avoiding more abstract concepts to streamline the user experience. 


Doro 8050 key features:

  • GPS-enabled Response button and compatibility with the new Response by Doro service – giving the user peace of mind, wherever they may be
  • High quality, loud and clear sound with HAC
  • Dedicated home button
  • Easy-to-read display and text
  • Easy-to-use, high quality camera
  • Headphone jack with USB C charging port
  • Robust design, with features to prevent damage from bumps and knocks


The Doro 8050 is compatible with the new Response by Doro service which can be activated simply by pressing the Response button on the back of the phone:

  • Response by Doro – a free to use feature on compatible Doro phones that alerts pre-selected Responders simultaneously and shares a GPS location of the senior user in the event of an emergency.


Additionally, via the Response by Doro app, users can gain access to further features, one of which allows loved ones and relatives to access a user’s phone remotely, from their own iOS or Android device. It provides added comfort for both the senior and their relatives, giving a third party the ability to supply extra support to a user. This could be in the form of anything from changing the display’s font size to adjusting their screen brightness or ringtone volume.
