BT Granite review


A smart, stylish phone for high tech minimalists? We shall see

Smart, compact, elegant design ; Ability to support up to five different handsets ; Digital answering machine ; Minimalist base stations holds the handset snugly and securely

Build quality is creaky ; Basic, white-on-black UI won't please everyone ; Other sub-£100 DECT phones deliver better value for the money

The BT Granite is a decent step-up compared with other BT phones we've 'enjoyed'. But even with its compact, minimalist design, it still falls someway short of the best
