Top 10 - Best Corded Telephones of 2017

What we think: The Gigaset DX800A is a sophisticated multi-line deskphone, which can be configured to work on landline with VoIP, or landline with ISDN, and is capabale of managing up to 4 simultaneous calls. The impressive phonebook memory will store up to 1,000 of your contacts, which can be synchronised and updated with your PC or laptop. It further benefits from being a DECT compatible base station, which means that you can register up to 6 cordless handsets (ideal if looking for a scalable solution) so that you can manage calls more effectively (with features such as call transfer & intercom). The large user-friendly 3.5” full colour display makes it easy to access features. Do you use your smartphone for business as well? Take advantage of the Bluetooth Connect feature to pair it with the DX800A so that you can make or receive all your calls on one phone system. This is our top-rated corded phone, and an ideal choice for small businesses, home offices, and even home use.

What we think: Our last entry is another retro-inspired model from Wild & Wolf, and this time we are delving back through the 20th century to the infancy of the humble landline phone. The classic design of the Wild & Wolf Series 302 was first introduced by American designer Henry Dreyfuss in the late 1930s and became the basis of design for all deskphones. If you’d like to give your calls an added air of importance this is definitely the phone for you!
