A key feature of the Doro 8080 is its inclusion of the comprehensive service package, My Doro. This service allows loved ones and relatives to access a user’s phone remotely, from their own iOS or Android device. This feature provides added comfort for both the senior and relatives by 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 updating a user’s contact list.
The Doro 8080 has a unique user interface that makes navigating the phone as easy as having a conversation. Using the new voice assistant, the smartphone user can issue commands through verbal communication. This feature offers valuable support, especially when used in combination with Google Assistant.
The bright 5.7-inch screen with 2:1 ratio offers the best compromise between size and portability. Its aluminium frame makes the smartphone light and robust, with premium stain protection, grippy back paint and special Dragontrail glass included for greater drop and scratch resistance. Developers and designers ensured buttons were clearly separated from one other for increased accessibility.
