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

  (Rating Hidden)

One of BT's more high-end models, the BT Sonus 1500 is packed with features including internal calling between handsets, and a generous 250-entry phonebook. We found the large phone book useful and the backlit screen easy to see, but how does it sound...

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...

We had a trio and duo version of this phone. Both failed. The duo experienced dropouts whilst on the phone. Both phones had handsets that would crash claiming the handset had no charge even though they were homed correctly in the charger.On a positive...

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...
