The Doro company designed the PhoneEasy 618 specifically with senior citizens in mind. The phone features large buttons and fonts, high volume levels and a speakerphone. It also features enhanced emergency features, including an emergency alert button, and the phone is also hearing aid compatible.
Other features that seniors might find useful include an easy-to-use camera and a visual ring indicator. In its review of the phone, the technology website CNET says the PhoneEasy 618 is "reasonably priced and exceptionally easy to use." As of 2015, Consumer Cellular is one of the few phone companies that offers monthly cell phone service plans for the PhoneEasy 618.
