Doro 824 SmartEasy
Consumer Cellular today announced the Doro 824 SmartEasy handset, an Android phone that features a user interface simplified for senior users. The 824 is based on Android 5.1, but trades in the typical home screen experience for an action-based menu for sending messages, making calls, browsing the web, and so on. The device looks similar to last year's Doro 825. It has a 5-inch 720p HD screen and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor with 8 GB of storage and support for memory cards up to 32 GB. The phone includes an 8-megapixel camera with full HD video capture and a front camera for selfies and video chats. Other features include hearing-aid compatibility, Bluetooth, and WiFi. Consumer Cellular is selling the Doro 824 SmartEasy for $200.
