BE AWARE : 1) The power supply that comes with the phone has a continental 2-pin plug. This can be overcome by using a UK-to-European adapter or more simply, a UK 3-pin to round 2-pin electric shaver adapter. 2) The lead for connecting the base unit to...

Although the Sony Xperia M2 looks pretty slick, it's let down by its low resolution display and its old version of Android, which makes even its affordable price way too high. For much less money, you could snap up the Moto G or spend a little more and...

These are great phones, clear, easy to use, large phone memory and virtually indestructible... perfect for my young family. The size is good so you can hold it under your chin if you need both hands free. Great battery life also.

Although sold through Amazon UK, the product description made no mention of the fact that it only came with a continental plug and therefore we could not use it. We have sent it back to get a refund.

    Buying Guide

    Buying Guide - Cordless Phones

    Cordless phones combine the mobility of a cell phone with the high audio quality of a landline. Although cordless phones require more frequent battery charges than a traditional cell phone, they are invaluable during emergencies when cell phone signal would otherwise be lost. Picking the right cordless phone is based on understanding how it will be used; is this for personal, business, or some combination of the two?

    Digital vs. Analog - Cordless phones are available in either a digital or analog format. Analog phones offer the highest audio quality on the market, and will remain functional even during major storms or emergencies. However, analog phones can often cause interference with other wireless devices, and their signal is easier to intercept and ‘listen-in’ on. Digital cordless phones don’t interfere with other devices, but can fall victim to poorer audio quality. Analog cordless phones are recommended for those people who enjoy long conversations, but a digital phone may be better for business conversations where security is a priority.

    Standard Features - Many cordless phones come with an answering machine, although consumers can choose to purchase a cordless phone sans answering machine. However, the price difference is small enough that consumers are advised to opt for the automatic answering feature. Consumers may also be wondering whether or not to buy cordless phones with multiple handsets. For a business scenario, multiple cordless phones can be a wonderful way to minimise expenditure while maximising flexibility. However, for cordless phones that utilise multiple phone lines, it is important that each phone is returned to its original cradle, or it may be difficult to answer calls on different lines. Making sure that phones are equipped with a ‘call-waiting’ feature, and the ability to effortlessly switch from one distinct phone line to another, will eliminate this difficulty. For personal use, multiple cordless handsets can be needlessly confusing, especially when searching for a ringing phone. In some cases, the central cradle for each cordless handset may be equipped with a separate keypad for those consumers who prefer to dial on a flat surface.

    Special Features - Some cordless phones are equipped with large displays for those who have impaired eyesight, or exceptionally large buttons for easy dialing. Again, the best model of cordless phone will largely depend upon the scenario in which it is being used. Some cordless phone makers such as GE have created phones that amplify their sound production to aid those who have difficulty hearing.
