    A Big Disappointment!, 17 Oct. 2014

    Most Annoying Phone I Have Ever Owned.

    Really disappointed with the Doro. Firstly I could not send/receive picture messages & spent ages with my phone network, and Doro, before it was eventually sorted. Then the screen developed a fault & I had to return phone for repair. Next, the Storage in this phone was almost 100% full due to the apps installed and updates, and this was causing a slowing down of the functions. Doro’s only “solution” was to delete the updates on Chrome to make more space available. I had an SD card in the phone but apparently this only stores pictures, music etc. Everything else is stored on the (overloaded) phone. I had only installed a few extra apps myself, so I don’t feel that I had overloaded things.

    This Liberto just wouldn’t function reliably. Things like “Doro Experience” would freeze. The app or web page I was on would just jump back to the opening screen. The camera function would freeze.

    Doro admitted to me that they had had many complaints about the Liberto 810. It is their first “smartphone” and it would appear that they are struggling with it. This is a shame as I liked the phone initially and really wanted it to work properly.

    My advice – avoid the Doro Liberto 810 – at least until Doro sort out the problems.

    Would never buy another. Why? They have no idea about user analysis. One slip of the top button and my keyboard changed from language of my choice (NOT ENGLISH) to English USA. System doesn’t use language of phone to give you the same keyboard!! You have to force it. You can’t have contacts on your SIM card AND the phone or else when you send messages and click on contacts ALL your contacts are doubled!!! The list goes on and on! The ‘individual’ who wrote the user manual must never have used the phone because a number of questions I had, simple ones weren’t in the manual. For example, how to change the message tones!!! I’d go back to my Doro 612 but that STB so my next phone will be recommended to me by a friend. Doro is just too young and they don’t understand how to program and TEST at all!!!

    Awful unusable touch screen., 6 Jan. 2015

    Verified Purchase(What is this?)

    Doro make phones targetted at the elderly and those that have trouble using technology, so I expected it to be easy to use, and the reason I bought it for my 84 year old mother. Not so with the one I got. The touchscreen was the worst smartphone touchscreen I’ve ever used. Even with a pen it would often not type the correct letter on the screen, and forget using a finger to type accurately. Plus the phone felt very cheap and of poor quality (and I’ve bought smart phones 2 years ago for not much more that were far better quality).

    The rest of the phone I have no problem with. The interface is well set out and easy to use. The 3 real keys on the bottom of the phone were a little stiff but a nice idea. And the screen looked okay.

    The only thing to excuse the phone is that maybe the screen was faulty or not calibrated correctly but I don’t expect to buy a phone like this and figure out how to make it type accurately. Anyway I only needed to use the phone for about 20 minutes before realising it had to be returned, and the company were only too happy to refund the cost, so at least if you want to try the phone there is that option, and maybe you’ll have better luck than me.
