This phone was like any other phone of its kind, a digital enhanced cordless telephone, or DECT.
It has a 100 number phone book and 20 minutes of clear recording from calls you've missed.
The screen was small but clear to see what was needed, such as the callers number, the battery state, the state of the battery quality and more.
The layout of the phone is as all the other cordless phones i've had. The numbers and buttons below the small screen, with other buttons such as the call end button, the loudspeaker button, as this phone does allow you to take a call without having to hold the phone against your ear, which is good when you have to wait on hold when you're trying to contact British gas and ask them why you have a massive gas bill when you don't even have gas in the house?
The call quality is second to none, giving a clear call and letting the people you are speaking too hear you as clear as you can hear them.
The answer machine is the main part, with it doubling as a charging port for the main handset, with the other handsets having their own, smaller charging units.
What ever the unit all you do it place the handsets on the unit and let them charge. You can even leave the hand sets in the charging units as when they re charged they do not over charge.
Anyway, the answer phone is simple to use, having few buttons to get confused by. The only buttons being around the central 'play' button. Those buttons letting you go through the messages, popping back to one you want to hear again, with a delete button to get rid of the ones you don't want. You can even turn the answer phone off so that the caller can not leave a message, plus, you can turn the volume up or down so that the callers voice can be heard as they speak, which comes in handy if you're screening your calls.
This is one of those phones that is as good as you need, capable of letting you make a call without interference and to hear the people on the other end of the line. It can take 20 minutes of messages which means that people can tell you what they think of this phone.
This phone sells for about £35 for the double pack with the prices for the larger set selling from £45.
the answer phone itself cost about £25.
