What’s new about the Doro PhoneEasy 623? It's a super-cheap clamshell-design feature phone made with older Australians in mind. So, there is very little that is new, which is deliberate.

What is the Doro PhoneEasy 623?
Doro is a company dedicated to making simple phones that are easy to use, and it's all done with an eye on providing seniors with technology that does exactly what they need, without the bells-and-whistles that they don't.
The PhoneEasy 623 is an old-school clamshell phone, flipping open to reveal a numeric keyboard and a small screen. It's a phone for people who want to make calls and send the occasional text.
Is the Doro PhoneEasy 623 a powerful phone?
Absolutely not. That's not even the point of it. But it is powerfully simple to use, which is what people are looking for if they're thinking of a phone like the PhoneEasy 623. It does come with big icons, clear navigation and an assistance button that can dial up to five numbers. All, it must be said, in a surprisingly stylish design.
Just so we're completely clear, this is a 3G-only phone – there isn't any 4G LTE connectivity at all. But it has been designed to work with hearing aids and the audio is louder than normal and clear.
How do I charge the Doro PhoneEasy 623?
The PhoneEasy 623 comes with a charging cradle that makes it easy to drop in the phone and charge up, which you won't need to do that often. Despite the small 800mAh battery, the simple nature of the phone means you've got 380 hours of standby time.

No, but it does have a camera, which is almost a little surprising. The 2-megapixel rear camera will let you take quick snaps or even short video to send as attachments in text messages.

It most certainly is not, so keep that in mind when you're out and about near any bodies of water.
