BT Stratus 1500 review

 

It's big, it's black, but it's not very clever

100-name-and-number address book, answer phone ; handsets should be hard to lose

Big, ugly and tacky ; poor and gloomy UI ; not as fully featured as some rivals ; very average call quality

The BT Stratus 1500 has a lot going for it... until you open the box

We have only owned this for 3 months and we are replacing it already, Appalling sound quality and not easy to navigate the screen - a decent manual would help too; we resorted to looking online and never found anything.Will stick to trusty Panasonic...

Excellent value

 

Really pleased. Excellent value & they look smart. Just lost 1 star because I don't like the ringtones. Please, let a phone just ring!

Does the job

 

The phones work fine as phones, it's good that you only have to put the numbers in once to have them appear on all the phones. Pity the groups you put the numbers in don't transfer to the other phones, or I haven't been able to make them, and I don't...

Great replacement

 

Our old BT phone gave up the ghost so looking at all the options this seemed the best. Easy to set up (assuming some basic level of intelligence). A variety of ring tones available most not great but that depends on individual taste but there will be...

Waste of money
