The Doro HandleEasy 328 gsm

A new mobile phone has been launched that’s been designed specifically for older and disabled mobile phone users.

The Doro HandleEasy 328 gsm has a large keypad and display designed to make dialling easier, while a vibrating ringer alerts you of incoming calls.

The manufacturer says it has been given a white on black screen for better display clarity and is essentially a ‘scaled-down mobile phone that’s easy to grip and simple to use.’

Pre-selected numbers

In our hands-on test, we found that the buttons on the handset are clearly labelled, well spaced out and in bold colours.

As with the earlier 326 model, there are four buttons at the top of the phone that will immediately call pre-selected numbers.

The battery life is also an improvement on the earlier 326 – you get an extra 40 minutes of standby time.

The 328 is available in black or white, is unlocked so that it can work on any network and costs £100.
