Customer reviews
Doro 8030 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money I have been using my Doro for a few months now and am really pleased I chose it. Having been an iPhone user for six years I was reluctant to change but as funds are tight, I opted for the Doro as it ticked most boxes as a replacement. I am delighted with it! Sound quality on a phone call is superb, texting a breeze and I have all the apps I need. OK, so it's not the quickest phone and the camera is a little poor, but for everything else it's superb. I would recommend this phone to anyone who wants to have a mobile phone for making calls, texting etc. and who wants to have access to a few apps, search the internet and listen to music. For this there is no better product at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I have this phone, not because "I'm senior" but because I have never had a smart phone. All those apps laid out on other phones are scary and the Doro 8030 is easy to set up, to use and making calls is so easy. I love this phone and just wish I had bought it sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the size fits nice in your hand I bought this for my husband, a first time smart phone user. He found it very easy to manage after a couple of days, love the size of the print. This easy to use phone, has brought him up to date with technical things. nice phone thrilled to bits with it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased my first smart phone at age 65 I have had a Doro "ordinary" phone for over 10 years and love it's simplicity and ease of use so when I decided to get a smart phone I went for Doro. This is taking a bit of getting used to especially when I a keep getting told I have a voice mail when I don't. Overall however I like the phone and will keep plodding on to get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Phone. The Doro 8030 is a great phone it has loud clear sounds for Music and the colour of the phone is nice. It has a clear big screen for browsing the Internet, Watching Videos and Typing. It also doesn't get hot like other android phones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you want a simple interface As a first smartphone for my 78yr old mum it's great. There are some limitations to how much you can configure it compared to a normal Android interface, but that's kind of the point - it does all she needs and in a simplementation way. The device hardware quality and robustness, fit for purpose. Definitely worth adding an SD card for additional storage. All day battery life may struggle with heavy use, but adequate for my mum. So overall great, and will reduce my tech support burden!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this phone for my father. My father is 86 years old and hard of hearing. He finds this phone quite good. Even though he did struggled in the beginning but slowly he is getting use to it. Big screen and easy to use on and off buttons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For those that want a simple smart phone I bought this for my husband to try and move him into the world of smart phones, he already had a doro flip phone, he wasn’t impressed at first but he soon got the hang of it, and wouldn’t part with it now, particularly good for people with a visual impairment.
