The which ? report has recently updated it’s reviews of home cordless phones by including a couple of new best buys.
There are two new best buy home phones in the latest edition (just out). Lets have a quick look at these two cordless phones and see if they merited their best buy status.
Siemens Gigaset S685
Which ? said:
The Siemens Gigaset S685 is a fantastic Best Buy home cordless phone and answering machine. Overall performance is excellent and it’s packed with advanced features. It is very expensive, however.
Pros: Excellent all-round performance, good answering machine, impressive range of features
Cons: No Sim-card reader, below-average battery life
Agreed on the whole. Very good phone with lots of nice features. Deserving to be a best buy. Just a shame it took more than 3 months for Which? to review it. On a side note, we found prices to be much less than that suggested on Which?.
Single handset: £69.99
Twin handset: £98.99
Panasonic KX-TG 8322
The Panasonic KXTG8322EB is an impressive Best Buy cordless phone and answering machine. Overall performance is very good, and its well equipped with a range of useful features. It is rather pricey, however.
Pros: Very impressive all-round performance, includes an answering machine, good range of features
Cons: No Sim-card reader
An excellent cordless phone. Shame on you Panasonic for not adding a SIM card reader which would have made it perfect. Very good sound quality and one of our top 10 phones of 2008.
Single handset: £54.99
Twin handset: £79.99
