SANS - Survey on application security programs

Call quality was consistently fine, with the emphasis on clarity rather than naturalness – the piercing polyphonic ringtones are very old school, but there's no way you can miss them. The same goes for the basic ringtones, which certainly cut through and can be set distressingly loud.

Doro 345gsm

Clarity rather than fidelity characterise this phone's audio and ringtones

The battery life is quoted as being the same as that on the PhoneEasy 338gsm – a not terribly impressive 280 hours standby and 180 minutes talk time, and with its more powerful screen and additional applications, you're likely to burn through it quicker. Ours was still going strong after three days though.

Verdict

With the PhoneEasy 345gsm Doro moves into genuine mobile phone territory. It's still not a device for phone fans, and is very clearly aimed at the elderly or disabled – people who might find the average modern mobile too confusing or fiddly. With that in mind, it's a carefully designed, extremely easy to use product that is certainly a big improvement on the average bog standard handset. ®
