Manufacturers Doro are one of the world’s leading names in the provision of amplified phones for the hard of hearing community. The PhoneEasy 612 model is an excellent example of how Doro mobile phones can help people with hearing loss without having to cost a fortune.
Who is the PhoneEasy 612 model for?
The Doro PhoneEasy 612 is the ideal amplified mobile phone for those looking to balance price, amplification, and style. The Doro PhoneEasy 612 is much louder than a standard mobile phone.
With a voice volume of up to 35db, around 10 times louder than regular mobiles, and a ringer volume of up to 83db, which is about 5 times louder than generic mobile phones, you no longer have to worry about missing the phone ring or miss out on valuable conversational details.
The Pros and Cons of the PhoneEasy 612.
The Doro 612 offers a unique combination of functionality with simplicity, meaning that whilst you may still wish to use an amplified mobile phone for taking the odd ‘Kodak Moment’ (a superb 2M Megapixel camera is included), you can still loudly hear calls without compromising on clarity.
The PhoneEasy 612 has been designed to provide modern day features in a mobile but keep things simple and easy to use. The stylish handset has the added benefit of answering and ending calls by simply opening and closing the phone, speed dial, assistance button, Bluetooth and more.
This extra loud PhoneEasy model would make the ideal replacement for an existing modern mobile phone where the user is simply looking to make calls easier to hear and not wishing to lose out on style to do so.
This model is sim free so can be used with any existing pay as you go or contract sim. Alternatively, you can use a new sim card if you desire.
It is also hearing aid compatible, meaning it can be used in conjunction with your hearing aids as long as they have the telecoil or “T” setting.
I honestly cannot find a genuine fault with this phone. For the price and functionality of the device, it is simply a great mobile phone. Of course, you can find amplified mobiles that can do much more, such as email, streaming, internet etc… but the PhoneEasy 612 does exactly what it says on the tin and can’t be faulted for that.

My summary of the Doro PhoneEasy 612
For those hard of hearing people who want their phone to do the basics very well such as call, text etc… then this phone is made just for you. The additional stuff such as an alarm, calculator, radio and ICE are excellent bonuses on a phone at this price.
The large number buttons and simplicity of the face design will also make this phone ideal for elderly people. It is a stylish looking model and I firmly believe that Doro has given us a phone that people can be very content with.
Why buy from Hearing Direct.com?
When reviewing products I think it is just as important to look at the supplier. After some bad experiences with other suppliers, I began to use Hearing Direct.com a number of years ago. They have a very extensive range of hearing aids as well as other assistive listening devices.
I have found their quality of service to be second to none. From the beginning, you will be put in contact with one of their fully qualified audiologists rather than a sales person. Their attention to detail is fantastic. The reasons I am happy to recommend them are,
A chance to make a saving – given their competitive pricing. As they’re an online company, they have significantly fewer overheads than those on the high street. It means any savings they make can be passed on to their customers.
A speedy delivery service – means you can order your hearing aid today either via their Customer Care Help Line or the Internet and they will endeavour to get the device delivered to you as early as tomorrow.
Free professional advice – is available when buying one of their hearing aids. They have a team of qualified hearing aid audiologists on standby to answer any questions you may have concerning hearing requirements, performance related issues or fitting enquiries. All you have to do is ask.
Hearing aids are pre-programmed – to assume a high-frequency requirement most commonly linked to age-related hearing loss. They can, however, be altered to meet your specific needs. All you need to do is send them your most recent audiogram to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will reset it accordingly.
A 30-day money back guarantee – means you can return the product and receive a full refund if you’re not completely satisfied with the purchase. This is the most important one of all. It allows to you try the devices for a full month to make sure that it is exactly what you want and need.

Reviews for the Doro PhoneEasy 612 Mobile.
Bought this two weeks ago and glad I did. Very easy to use, straightforward. Ideal just for texting and phone, it also has a camera so I can take pics and send them to my friends. Very clear sound and easy to read even without wearing my glasses and you can even make the text size larger if needed. Excellent for older people and beginners or anyone who wants just a straightforward phone.
A GREAT PHONE, BUT NO VIEDO, CAMERA. (Actually, there is a camera!!!!!)
I recently purchased the Doro PhoneEasy …
I recently purchased the Doro PhoneEasy 612 and as pleased as punch with it. Very loud if you need it that way but can be toned down. For the price and easy use it is as good as it gets very clear and light. You would have to go a long way to beat it.
