Doro 8020X - Product review by Michael Simnett, AF Tech Support specialist

The robust Doro 8020X is designed to withstand some of the most challenging work environments including agricultural sites. It is shock, dust and water-resistant, with a measured IP rating of 67, meaning it is fully protected from dust and can also withstand being submerged in 1 metre of static water for up to 30 minutes.

Like many Doro mobile phones, the 8020X is equipped with an assistance button, which can be used to request help. It is also compatible with the Doro 3500 Bluetooth wrist trigger, which is also IP67 rated, and can be worn on the outside of clothing. The alarm assistance request can be sent in various ways, depending on the employer's requirements. In its standard form, the device will send an SMS with the worker's pre-programmed contacts (up to 5), and dial the numbers in rotation until answered. During testing I found it to be very reliable once the button is pressed to activate the sequence.

Not only have I found this to be a good solution for lone workers, but it also offers peace of mind for more elderly members by reassuring them that they can be contacted should any should any difficulties arise. 

The Doro specs include -

  • An assistance button
  • A safety timer: a function which enables the user to set a timer for an alarm activation after a specified time frame, depending on how long a job should take
  • GPS localisation
  • 'Are you OK?' alerts via i-care® online, which can be sent to the user, by colleagues, for welfare checks
  • Tracking, a service which can view the location of the device at any time via an alarm receiving centre
  • Android 6.0
  • 5MP camera
  • 8GB memory with SD card to add up to 128GB additional useable memory
  • Long lasting 3000 mAH battery
  • 2G / 3G / 4G (LTE) / Wifi / Bluetooth v4 connectivity
