Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm

>> Thursday, December 10, 2009

Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm is a comfortably sized candy bar style phone at 4.9 by 2 by .6 inches (HWD) and 3.5 ounces, coated in a soft touch black or white plastic. The phone has huge rubberized buttons and a bright enough, basic 1.8 inch 128 by 96 colors LCD screen with large fonts. At US$40, with no contract service plans from Consumer Cellular starting at US$10 a month, Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm is extremely affordable.

Consumer Cellular uses AT&ampT's physical network, but charges less than the major carriers do per minute for light users (though they don't offer free nights and weekends.) But here's the design flaw. Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm has a "panic button" on the back that calls a user programmed number if you press it three times. The panic button is exactly where it put my index finger when I'm holding the phone up to my ear. This is very annoying. Now, not everyone puts their finger in that location.

Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm is a decent voice phone, but I like its stablemate the PhoneEasy 410gsm better. Like the 410gsm, Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm gets better reception and sounds better than AT&ampT's other simple phone, the Pantech Breeze. But Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm sounded a bit muddier, both on receive and transmit, than the 410 it was still acceptable, just not as good as its cousin.

The speakerphone was loud but sounded hollow. Like the 410gsm, Doro PhoneEasy 345gsm has a powerful vibrate mode and comes with 20 ringtones, including classical music and traditional phone rings. It connected with my Plantronics Voyager Pro Bluetooth headset without a problem.
