BT Verve 450 Twin
Advantages: Nice design, good sound quality and range
Disadvantages: Poor build quality and shows fingerprints really easily
Lovely looking phone and when we first got this to replace a very expensive Samsung home phone I was delighted with the way it felt to hold and use.
Everything was great with the BT Verve for the first year and then the main downstairs handset would start cutting out after about 5 minutes of use. This didn't happen all the time but often enough to make it only usuable when left on the docking station and used as a speaker phone. Eventually the same happened with the second handset so I replaced both batteries and everything was fine for about a week before the symptoms came back. I can only assume the charging unit in the base was faulty so decided it was time to cut my loses and go for a different make.
While it was working as it should it was a good phone, with clear sound and a really impressive range (way over the 100m claimed) before the signal warning beep kicks in. If it works it's great, if not then it can have you tearing your hair out in frustration.
Poor manufacturing on this model has put me off BT phones for life.
Summary: Not one I'd recommend
