Doro 830R


The Doro 830R is a space-saving, stylish cordless phone with different designs to suit a range of tastes.

Small form factor ; Tiny footprint ; Multi-coloured faceplates

Maximum of 20 phonebook entries

Outlook Retailing at AU$129 with a built-in digital answering system, and only AU$80 for an extra handset, we see the tiny Doro 830R filling a gap in the market for a stylish, reasonably-priced, compact cordless phone.

I needed a very small footprint telephone handset and answerphone unit for my home office line. The Doro fits the bill perfectly, and unlike those who complain of the low handset volume (I SAID UNLIKE THOSE WHO COMPLAIN OF THE LOW HANDSET VOLUME, DEAR)...

The ugly duckling of the Doro range. Nice and small, but design needs some work.

Speakerphone is OK

The phone is just TOO small, no backlight, usability is a little quirky, volume is too low, and voice quality (picked up by the mic) is crappy (compared side by side with a basic Telstra corded phone). if you take the phone handset withyou out of...

Product Specifications

One of the smallest telephones available on the market. Modern and stylish design with three different colors to choose between for the telephone's exchangeable shells. Just choose and vary according to your own taste. Other advantages include the high technological and functional level, the built-in answering machine, speaker phone and caller ID, plus two phone books, and individual ringer signals. The compact design makes Doro 830R one of the tiniest phones on the market. External dimensions are only 104x47x25mm. This model is designed by Propeller - this is the award-winning Swedish designer company that created several successful Doro models. Digital answering machine is managed from the handset. Your outgoing message is recorded easily by pressing a couple of buttons, and it is just as easy to listen to incoming messages. There are two phone books plus the possibility to use individual ringer signals for your favorite numbers. Hear who is calling, or who the caller wants to speak to, without looking at the telephone. The handset two-way speaker phone is a useful function where everyone can take part in the conversation. Press the button and gather around the telephone. If you want to revert to a personal call, press the button again. This way you can speak freely without holding the handset.
