eileen

I don't like this mobile.

As others have said the battery life is awful and sometimes just when I am going out I notice it's down low. Then I don't have time to charge it as it seems to need charging every other night without even using it much. and I always forget to charge it..I will not be getting another doro 

gresmond

well made but poor battery life.that runs out very quickly.

As somebody else has said the battery power soon runs out. Not up to standard!!


gresmond

Build quality is good, but the battery soon runs out.This is a major disadvantage. 

larry

Nice usable phone BUT!

The phone is well made for the target market, the more mature end, but has one major drawback: the battery life is bl...dy awful. Doro say approx 15 days standby, have yet to achieve more than 3. Given that the older you get the more forgetful you become it's quite possible there will be no charge left when there is an urgent need.

Audrey

nice phone

want to find out if you have pay as you go.

brian

love the phone but battery charge dosent last long even with minimal usage


Iris

And you can't buy a replacement battery. I've searched the internet and Doro's own site - but nix! Frustrating!


Kevin

Battery life is crap. 15.8 days, phah. If I use the phone by lunchtime the next day it needs charging. Every day this week so far. Not good enough. My old Samsung would last a good week+ on a charge.
