Doro phoneeasy 100w twin dect cordless phone. It is a good phone, for my 90 year old deaf mother, (the audio boost is great,) it is a little complicated only because she has had a stroke too but she can still use it. It did go wrong after 4 months, and i had to have it replaced, but amazon was an amazing help with this ,they made it very easy and uncomplicated to return it, and replace it with a new one-especially as she is on a ‘ life line ‘and it was a worry to us for her to be without a phone.
I supported my aunt to purchase this phone. She is registered sight impaired and needed a new telephone that she was able to operate effectively. Having searched on amazon and read reviews, purchased the phones. It was easy to set up and useful that it has a number of programmed dialled settings. It also has a button to increase the loudness when on the phone but she doesn’t have a need for this. Brilliant phone, good price.
So far the telephones appear to have been a good buy. The buttons are large making for easy dialling, speech is clear, and a good loud volume can quickly be selected, both with and without the loudspeaker function. I have not yet used the memory function. Here are the specifications for the Doro PhoneEasy 100W Twin DECT Cordless Phone:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- Big buttons for easier use
- Loud ringer and handset volume
- Backlit display
- Audio boost function
Considering this product is aimed at the elderly user it is far too complicated to set up and use. Not easy to programme quick dial numbers. Cannot see the whole number of a missed call without pressing more buttons. Volume adjustment not so easy to use. Standby battery life very gooddisplay size good. Sound quality goodrange in a house with thick walls good.
I bought this phone for my mum who’s eye sight is poor. She really likes it and finds it easy to use. The only criticism is that the ring could be a bit louder for people with hearing loss.

Does what it says on the box. I bought this for my mother who was having difficulty with her old phone because of the small buttons – the phone was often not hung up properly. It was easy to set up, the volume levels are good with the option to boost and to use the loud speaker. Mum no longer leaves the phone ‘off the hook’.
Excellent phones for severley partially sighted users. My wife is severely partially sighted and she can use these phones. My only constructive feedback is that it would be good to have a high contrast colour choice (i.
