About this deal

Connectivity options include Bluetooth and 3G – there’s no 4G here, so web browsing will be slightly sluggish.

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. Not all phones have to be smart, in fact, in making a phone smart you often lose the simplicity, and get lumbered with extra features that will go unused by many. 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.

Available in red or grey, it has a plastic shell, but a reasonably attractive and solidly built one. If you have sight or hearing problems it's even better, just don't expect to do much more than talk and text with it.

It’s not going to win any design awards, but the Doro 6520 is simple and holds its own among other feature phones. There is also a full numerical keypad and a number of shortcut keys to create messages or activate the camera. In the folded position, the Doro 6520 is small (it’s just over 10cm long) and light (it’s only 108g). 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.VERDICT: This is an ideal device for an older user who doesn't want to get bogged down with a complicated smartphone but still wants to stay in touch. This display is not a touchscreen but it’s still easy to navigate the device’s menu through the physical directional keys on the phone. There’s no front-facing camera here, but that’s not a feature we expect to see on basic handsets like this.

This display is not a touchscreen but it's still easy to navigate the device’s menu through the physical directional keys on the phone.

But by dumb and feature phone standards it’s actually reasonably large, and certainly big enough to comfortably read messages and view photos. This is an ideal device for an older user who doesn’t want to get bogged down with a complicated smartphone but still wants to stay in touch.

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 has an 800mAh battery, good for up to 8 hours of talk time or 380 hours of standby time.

The buttons are big and evenly spaced apart with numerals and symbols big enough to read without wearing your glasses.
