This phone has a big red button for emergencies


Even if you’re all alone, this phone’s got your back.

The Doro 8020X — available in Europe and the UK — is your typical waterproof smartphone, except it’s a bit more robust and potentially life-saving.

On the phone’s edge is a red button—also known as an assistance button—that sends out an alarm in the form of a text message with the user’s GPS location. This goes out to up to five emergency contact numbers pre-programmed into the phone.

It’s an ideal phone for people who find themselves alone, in remote locations or in dangerous situations for work or other reasons. It’s listed as a phone for users with an “active” lifestyle.

Doro, a Swedish company, specializes in phone technology for the elderly and people with disabilities. This phone caters to a slightly different vulnerable population, specifically workers in construction, agriculture, health care, social work, and other “heavy” industries.

It’s a pretty durable looking brick of a phone that runs on Android. It’s supposed to handle being submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, is dust resistant, and has a long-lasting battery. 

If you’ve broken more than a few iPhones, and don’t like swiping around for an emergency contact, this might be the phone for you.
