We are having problems with the phone. It is not clear and the loudest ring is not suitable as it is for use in a shop. Will have to return

Philips SE5651 With Answer Machine


Reviewer left no comment

Very poor sound quality. It is difficult to hear. The earpiece has to be in exactly in the right place to hear anything at all. As the main purpose of any phone is to be able to hear what is being said then this one fails to do this essential function...

Worst Phone Ever


This is by far the worst phone I have ever purchased. The sound quality was appalling, you can hardly hear the other person on the other end of the phone it sounded like they were in a tunnel!!! Even when everything was set at the loudest.

Very easy to set up


The menu screen on the phone was helpful and logical almost like a mobile phone. Good choice of ring tones, light weight handset and messages can be accessed from the handset as well as answer machine base.
