Advantages: It has many contact spaces, coloured screen and great battery life
Disadvantages: The price and the fact it is missing some key features
When buying a new phone for the home I spend hours looking around various websites for great deals and plenty of accessories included in anything I am looking at.
I found on Amazon a few months ago now a set of three telephones for the home designed by Panasonic and at first they were not my first option but they slowly won me over by some of the features and design of the phone.
Most people are aware about Panasonic being a big branded company and these phones definitely show that they have been made by a top manufacturer. In the set I obtained I get three phones and each are the same size which is 6 inches in height, 1.5 inches in width and 1 inch in depth.
They are much bigger then my previous phones I had and they weigh roughly the same which is 105 grams. The first thing you need to do is charge these phones which is simple and this is done by putting them into their charging booths and they takes about 6 hours to charge fully.
I have to admit my biggest pet hate is when I have family who pick up the phone and then leave it around the home and then the battery dies and your left wondering where the missing phone has gone and fortunately these phones have an excellent battery power lifeline.
I have left my phone for over 30 hours and still had battery power left on the device so this again is pretty good but it might be much higher than the number I have quoted above. There is a smashing screen with this phone with is 2 inches in size.
I love the fact it has some much vibrant colours for you to use and enjoy. Black and white images or text is rather boring on a phone so when you have an incoming call and the phone lights up with colour in the background that helps you appreciate how modern this phone is.
All the buttons are similar to most other phones and this is the call and end call buttons and loud speaker and various other commands you learn as you become more confident on the phone.
You can store up to 200 names on this device so far I have put in 54 and when I need to phone someone instead of rushing around trying to find the number I just scroll through the list of names and then select their name and it rings straight away.
One of the good parts for me is that with this phone you can programme a number and contact into any of the three phones and it sends that number to other two so it saves you typing them into every single phone. My previous phone I had for the home I had to do every number and contact individually on all four of the handsets which was annoying.
You have a good amount of answering machine time as well which is around 40 minutes. I have found this fantastic because recently I had to get some information to my family and I left a ten minute phone message which actually shocked me because some phones do not allow you to leave that length of a phone message.
There are a few various ringtones to choose from and unfortunately they are not the best they sound all alike and very similar to the ring tones you hear on other phones so that is nothing special and it is shame you cannot download some of your own versions of a ringtone which would increase the features further.
There are many languages to choose from on this phone and you have the time and date always displayed on the front as well and you told the duration of each incoming and outgoing calls you receive and make.
One of the few drawbacks is there is no texting on this phone which is something I was looking for but this phone is unable to do this and it does not display who is ringing you either.
I think the idea of knowing who is ringing you helps people out of many situations especially those annoying advertising calls you get from time to time. You can go outside and the phone still manages to stay connected unlike my previous phone.
Along with a few minor features being missing the phone can cost a small fortune with some prices ranging from £75-£130 which is a large difference for anyone to pay.
Reviews on this phone suggest it is an excellent phone which helped me choose for them but I find them very good for volume because you can hear this phone ring anywhere in a home providing you put each handset in a decent location.
I also think the amount of contacts you can store and the colour screen very helpful to anyone to have as well.
There is other features available I have never used and one is a conference call and another is setting an alarm which so far I have failed to master.
In my opinion this is a top phone choice for people to make and the price should be lower for what it is. There are some decent features which are missing and if added would make this a very desirable phone to have.
Summary: A decent phone but a heavy price needs to be lowered
