BT Duet 20
Advantages: Slimline, uncluttered number pad, affordable, simple to use.
Disadvantages: May be a bit too basic for some, a bit boring looking perhaps.
Although we often use our mobile phones in our household we still manage to get through landline phones like nobodies business. We have owned a number of telephones over the years and had varied success, overall the experiences have been bad, though!
The BT Duet 20 is a very basic landline telephone and offers very little by way of features. Priced at around the £10-£15 mark it is probably one of the cheapest and most basic BT handsets around. The plain white finish coupled with the clean lines and minimal buttons results in an uncluttered handset offering a simple and easy to use experience to the user. The keys are clearly labelled and it would be hard to get confused when using the phone, meaning it scores highly on ease of use. The handset is lightweight.
Obviously there are negatives to the BT Duet 20. If you are looking for something more 'techie' then the Duet 20 certainly wouldnt be of interest to you, but I find the simplicity hard to fault in times when mobile phones run our lives and we are able to control everything from our Facebook status' to our Ebay accounts at our fingertips. The simplicity is a breath of fresh air in my opinion, but some may find such a plain phone frustrating.
The BT Duet 20 has two ringtone volume levels to choose from and a silent mode, a red light flashes to indicate a call being received. Dialling a number is simple. Anyone with large digits will find the Duet 20 very easy to use and with so few buttons very little can go wrong!
The slimline design and minimalist approach means that for those with limited space the Duet 20 is easy to install anywhere in the home. If you are looking for a telephone for the kitchen then the Duet 20 is a live contender. The wire is of a decent length but can get tangled easily after a while of use.
Overall the BT Duet 20 is a very basic and simple to use phone. Tech geeks may hate this phone, but for those that don't miss their mobile phone when it isnt on their person I feel the Duet 20 will be popular.
Summary: Great value basic phone for those with limited space and expectations.
