Test: Doro Liberto 810

Simple to use, yet is not limited in its advanced features. It has been a difficult combination for pensioners, but Doro seems to with Liberto 810 be on track.

High standards
It was, of course, only a matter of time, as new seniors are becoming more technology used obviously set the increasing demands on their phone. You don’t want to miss opportunities for picture messaging, smart apps and browse the internet just because you come up in years and vision, hearing or motor skills didn’t really hang with.

Therefore offers not only Doro Liberto 810 calls and texts but also email, maps with navigation, camera, and above all the ability to load apps to expand your phone’s features.

What could stop here and what distinguishes Doromobilen from most others is that it is adapted in several ways for those who have a little bit difficult to use other phones. It can be messy, more obscure menus, graphical effects that mystifies and small buttons that can be hard to pick. This is Doro tried to fix, and I think we succeeded in really good.

Custom Android
The operating system of the phone is Android and it has probably selected for the combination of Doro apputbud and their own ability to tailor it. for example, the Start screen is only one in number and there is also no swarm of widgets and icons. The only thing you are greeted by the home screen’s three favorite contacts that may make the company of icon for telephone, messaging and camera. A touch arrow takes you to all apps, and other functions such as located on the large buttons spaced on as many screens as required. To get around these features press directly on the screen and swipe to switch between icons, but you can also tap on the bottom of the screen images, good for those who have difficulty with that little flick which still required when to wrap up a new page icons. The physical buttons on the phone are also large, clear and sturdy. For each key press you do, you will receive a confirmation from the phone in the form of a vibration or sound so that way you know it really responded.

For those who are unsure about the technology, it feels so done safely with an owner’s manual. With your phone, follow it with a small, quick start guide and a to booklet with some technical terms are explained. Fine then, but above all it is Official adaptations of the system that makes the phone exceptionally simple to use it’s simply harder to make mistakes. When I click around in the menus, I am constantly in Official custom system with good contrast, large clear buttons. It is only on rare occasions, as when I want to delete an app or to install a new app that I see small traces of “regular” Android. In your phone, see Google’s popular applications store for applications called Google Play, but there is also Michael own app store where there should be a little easier to find. When you select an app where you are sent to Google, however, further Play, so Official Store is mostly because the good apps will be a little easier to find.

When the app opens, however, so well, it looks like in the Android phone, at any time without any special adaptations, but the phone’s physical buttons, you have of course always remains.

In addition to the physical buttons on the front of the phone is the look quite ordinary. You manage the volume with the buttons on the side of the phone, and at the top there is a button that lets you turn off and turn on the phone. There are no special alarm buttons or support for a hearing loop in this phone. Volume during calls and ring tone can be set fairly high, but it is not an exceptional volume and it is not so much on the point from the other phones on the market. Doro themselves provide maximum ringtone volume to 83 decibels, if you have your phone on only one meter.

A clearer alignment for the better is that the widgets available in the often multiple home screens in other Android mobiles are missing in Doro Liberto 810. Widgets are small mini-programs that can display, for example, updates from Facebook, the weather right now, the latest news or the Inbox of your e-mail. Access all areas directly in the start screen, in ordinary cases, but not in the Doro-mobile. For the sake of convenience, rather than as a separate app widgets assembled, so you have to actively go into and look there. I think it works great and makes the menus and options do not become confusing to many.

Help is available
Should you have problems with the phone and not come on how they should be addressed, there is a remote control function where any more technology knowledgeable can help the user along the way without being in place. On the other hand, support staff from Doro if you contact them, be able to make the settings remotely right from your phone, but there is also a Web-based service where the who knows your password can log in and move around the icons in the home screen, or change in the address book. If the user of the phone done something by mistake, it seems this might be a convenient way of including a more technology van family member to put things right again.

What is harder to fix is the camera and the performance of the phone. Considering the price tag and all the Nice adjustments Doro made, I think the phone is a very affordable phone, but it does not mean that it is fast. It is still on your Android phone and when, for example, I use it at the same time as the system chooses to download and install any app updates, it takes several seconds before it reacts on the screen press I do. One disappointment is also the camera, for it lacks autofocus, which allows images rarely or never gets any sharp. Fårgåtergivningen stops almost always a disappointment. Doro Liberto 810 is a great phone for many, but not those looking for a good camera or are impatient.
