      I am very fussy with phones. Unusually not with mobiles but for landlines I expect quality. Mobiles, I find always have something wrong with them and I've given up on trying to get the latest touchscreen mega internet Wi-Fi multigame phones or however they're selling them now and go for the classic nokia bricks however, with landlines, I see no reason why they shouldn't do their job perfectly.

      With them needing to do a lot less, with just basic calls, text and saving numbers, not a lot can really go wrong. This is what I thought when I bought this a few months ago. After all the handsets continuously going missing, I aimed to buy a new set with a pager installed with it. I'd had enough of using my mobile to phone the landline so I could use it. A strange cycle that took a few years to realise I needed to stop. The pager works very well, and has absolutely no complaint there. The volume is perfect as well as the ringtone volume and can even change the tune that goes along with these. It's the volume of the phone call itself that seems to cause the most problems.

      I'm not exactly deaf and neither is my family that use this phone, however more often than not we have to resort to using the speaker phone in order to hear what the other person is saying. Though the loud speaker is extremely good quality and probably the best I have come across, I shouldn't be using this to communicate!

      Another problem I have is using the buttons. Although it is very clear on the screen how to add contacts or text people, sometimes it can become unresponsive and now tend to just use my mobile to text while I'm in the house. Annoying seeing as texts are free with my landline! Though the buttons are easy to type into when it is responsive. They are large and not touch screen which is great for me as I much prefer using standard buttons.

      The battery is great with this phone and last a considerable amount of time as long as you're not constantly on call though even when it does run out there is more than one handset so one is always on charge (when they're not all buried under the sofa that is).

      The phones themselves aren't exactly attractive in appearance. Its description often mentions something about a sleek design but other that being a bit black and shiny, there really isn't anything that sleek or modern looking about it. It's doesn't really attract too much attention but then again it's a landline. When do people ever really care about the appearances of them? It doesn't have a cord and it's not the size of a brick. That'll do perfectly fine for me!

      I can't say that I'm amazed with its product. I'm perfectly happy with its appearance, speaker phone and pager however it let me down with the volume of calls and ill probably invest in a new landline.
