Disadvantages: no answerphone
our old phones finally died a few weeks ago so needed to buy some new ones (not that we ever really use the "home phone") however after many searches and reading many reviews i decided on these due to the amount of positive comments and feedback compared to some other phones. we brought the set of three as we have one up stairs, one in the hall and one in the lounge. one of the good things about BT phones is that you have the option to buy either one, two, three or sometime five in a set, so suitable for anyone with any type of need or home. One of the main things that drew me to this phone is that it has an energy efficiant power supply, so will use around half the amount of energy that other BT phones would use, saving you money on your electric bill! i brought the three pack from Argos for £49.99 which i felt was very reasonable for a pack with 3 phones. (this was on offer as usually £59.99)
The phones feel very light and are very easy to hold, they are quite long and thin which makes it very easy to grip and hold when having a conversation, and doesnt start to hurt your hand after being on the phone for ages like i have found with some phones. Argos only had the black style available but i have seen on other sites that they are alos available in silver. i felt the black ones look very modern and stylish and fitted in well with a modern home.
There are many useful settings on this phone, i especially like the phone book option where you can add all your contacts to make it easier when needing to contact someone, you no longer have to search for your phone book or find your mobile to get the number. it is very simple to use by just pressing the phonebook picture button and scrolling through to find the person you want to contact. i also really like the internal call feature, so you can call another phone within the house, this is especially useful if you have a large house, you can use the phone downstiars to call the phone upstairs and speak to your partner / child etc rather than shouting through the house. this is also helpful for when you answer the phone downstairs and you want to transfer the call to the person upstiars.
There are also other features such as redial, speak phone, call log, hold and conference calls but we tend not to use these ones.
These phones are great and the volume and sound are brilliant, you also have volume control to either turn up or down if the person on the other end is too loud or too quiet.
with many phones i have experience the battery life on them is never very good and you usually start to find leaving the phones off of the base for a few hours will run the phone right down, however so far with these phones i have found the battery life is much better than i had expected them to be and seem to last a very long time.
The only down side is that ours did not come with an answer phone however we just make the most out of 1571 instead.
overall very stylish modern looking phones, great feel to them and work very well.
Summary: overall good stylish phone, good for any home
