BT Studio 1100 Twin
Advantages: Cheap, robust
Disadvantages: the silver plastic fades and the signal can receive interferance every now and again
I baught these phones a couple of years ago when me and my partner got our first home together. Like most people i'm too eager to read the instructions, so i just plugged them in and that was that. Eventually i figured out how to use a few of the basic functions, so i set up the ringer tones which was fairly easy to do and you get a choice of many- aswell as the ring volume which ranges for mute to a loud volume.
Again without the instructions i managed to figure out how to store numbers, but eventually i gave in and had to look at the user manunal! Upon doing so i realised these phones had a lot more features than i gave them credit for. Including being able to track all the previous numbers i dialled, aswell as all the previous missed calls and received calls.
Nine times out of ten i receive no interferance with the wireless on these phones, however now and again i do get some interferance which can sound like bustling and sometimes even an echo of my own voice. Bizzarely aswell sometimes the wireless receiver built into them will mess up the signal of my Sky TV temporarily, confused? Me too!
Aesthetically they arn't too pleasing, they are a bit lightweight and after a while i noticed that the silver plastic started to fade on certain areas- especially the back cover.
They are however very hardwearing, i have lost count of the number of times i have dropped them- or my little boy thrown them and they still work perfectly fine.
The batterylife is very long lasting, and they have hours of talk time before they need to be placed in the charging docks.
Overall these are budget phones so you get what you pay for, I wont be singing this products praises from the roof tops but i'm content enough with these phones enough not to feel the need to replace them. I do feel they are lacking in a few areas, but as i say they are budget phones and with technology these days the higher the qaulity the higher the price tag.
Summary: You really do get what you pay for from BT
