Disadvantages: Needs constant mains power supply
I have had this phone for about 2 years now and have never had a problem with it.
The handset is gloss black which looks sleek and modern and the buttons are soft and quite large and easy to press without pressing the button next to it.
You can save numbers into the phone book so you can quickly dial your favourite numbers or if you have caller display with your telephone provider, the name of the person appears on the display when they ring. I find this to be a great feature.
If you miss a call, a little icon appears at the top of the display so you can walk in and at a quick glance you can see if anyone has called without having to bother going through the 1471 process. with one press of a button it'll bring up the number of the person who called.
The range of this phone is good, I can use it round the house and in the garden and have never had any trouble with signal or interference.
The base does have to be plugged into a mains power supply at all times else the handset won't work even if it's fully charged, it just says "Searching" on the display. So you need an available wall socket which is relatively close to your telephone socket.
If you want a good phone with a few easy to use features, I would recommend this phone. Most features have their own button on the handset so one press and you're there, no need to scroll through menu after menu like with some phones I've seen
Summary: A great phone
