Advantages: Cordless range
Disadvantages: Always needs to be plugged in the mains
I have got this phone because I wanted a cordless phone that I could carry around the house, and mainly so I could talk in bed haha. I got it from Sainsbury for £39.99 which is a bargain.
The phone has a built in answering machine where you can record up to 12minutes. It has a 50 name and number directory so no need for the phone book anymore (well for your first 50 ppl) the phone gives you a selection of 5 different ring tones and volumes. It says you get around 10 hours talk time but I have not actually checked this as I usually put it back on charge when I'm finished with it. It has good range which I was happy about, meant I could answer the phone in bed, the garden and all over the house. You got 50m indoors and 300m outdoors. The phone comes with caller Id so you can see who is calling, this is good when you don't want to answer the phone to certain people lol. You get some other good features like low battery warning and out of range warning which is good because it gives you time to quickly fix the problem.
The phone came with two rechargeable batteries so need to buy lots of new ones which is good. The brand is BT and can be used on any phone line. It a nice black colour and good looking design. I believe it was made in Japan and the phone size was around 170mm height and 120 in depth and 150 width with a weight of 0.45g.
The phone comes with a stand charging unit that needs to be plugged into the mains. You can also play back messages from the base which is cool, no need to listen down the phone.
The phone looks really nice and stylish and is ergonomically made well. It fits into my hand well and feels comfy when I'm on the phone. The phone was really easy to use, the main features are very simple but most phones are the same. To use the other features they are really to use to but can be easily followed using the instructions. Another good feature is that it has a keypad lock.
The phone is really good. It does a lot and looks really good. I really like this phone and think that the range is really good. The battery life has been really good so far and the storing names and numbers feature is really good. Saves me looking up people's numbers. I would give this phone a really high rating.
Summary: Great cordless house phone
