About this deal
And all of the space will be available at all times, as it’s not a touchscreen, so you won’t find half the display obscured by a keyboard or your own fingers. Design
As such that amount of power is adequate. It’s not the snappiest phone in the world but nor does it feel sluggish. Camera The extra features and well-spaced keys also make it a strong choice for the elderly and those with sight or hearing impairments, and of course as a basic phone it’s also a good choice for anyone inexperienced with tech. The Doro 6520 has a clamshell design, so you flip it open to see the screen and use the keypad. That makes it compact but chunky, at 103.9 x 55.1 x 19.2mm, and it’s light at just 103g.There’s no front-facing camera here, but that’s not a feature we expect to see on basic handsets like this. Features
In the folded position, the Doro 6520 is small (it’s just over 10cm long) and light (it’s only 108g).There’s a 2MP camera on the Doro 6520 and obviously this isn’t going to be taking great snaps, but viewed on the phone’s small screen they look quite good – just think twice about printing them out or viewing them on a larger display. The Doro 6520 can also film video, with similarly limited results. Connectivity options include Bluetooth and 3G – there’s no 4G here, so web browsing will be slightly sluggish. Verdict
PROS: Large easy-to-read screen, physical keypad with large buttons, hearing aid compatible, assistance button, loud ringer It’s chunky and the camera could be better (since even those without smartphone needs would probably like to take the occasional picture) but otherwise the Doro 6520 is a solid, simple handset and worth the money.The Doro 6520 is a clamshell, or flip phone as we used to call them, with a 2.8-inch display that’s easy to read. This isn’t a phone that you’ll be playing videos on, so the limited size and resolution really isn’t much of a problem.
