Cordless phones have come a long way to offer streamlined communication for the growing user needs. The telephone has been undergoing continuous modifications to accommodate advanced communication features and enhance ease of use without compromising on the simplicity of set-up procedures or look and feel to fit the home or office environment.
Shopping for the best cordless phone is no easy task, so we have taken it upon ourselves to sort through the numerous brands, makes, models, and styles, and give you a short list of favourable options that offer good call quality, excellent performance, reliability, range, and all-round quality.
1. Siemens Gigaset S795
First on the list is the S795 cordless phone by Siemens Gigaset; a high-quality phone with top-of-the-range features and an integrated answering machine offering up to 45 minutes of recording time. This phone is designed to suit the unique needs of professionals looking to benefit from state-of-the-art technology.
The S795 provides all the necessary features to keep in touch. The phone can hold up to 500 vCard entries, and transfer the contacts through the mini-USB and QuickSync Software data synchronisation by Gigaset.

2. Panasonic KX-TGH220
Second on the list is the Panasonic KX-TGH220. While it does not have a 2.5mm headphones slot like the S795, it is an attractive phone with a large 1.8-inch colour display that packs a lot of exciting features, particularly for the elderly looking for smart call management. What this means is that the KX-TGH220 has multiple blocking options to provide the user with the ultimate control over unwanted calls. The Nuisance Call block function allows you to block up to 50 numbers in the register, including withheld numbers, annoying telemarketers, and groups of numbers based on their first 2 to 8 digits.
The phone also offers a “Do Not Disturb” mode that lets only important calls to come through when you need to enjoy peace of mind. The TGH220 also delivers a new level of efficiency with the “Intercom All” function that allows you to contact all connected handsets in the home (up to 6), as well as a “Mobile Connector” function that pairs with your smartphone so you can find whenever you misplace it.

3. Siemens Gigaset C620A
Another Gigaset phone that combines an elegant design with the high-end state-of-the-art technology that is characteristic of Gigaset’s range of phones, to simplify typical household routines. The Siemens Gigaset C620A cordless phone offers a remarkable talk-time of 26 hours, and its compatibility with the L410 hands-free clip lets you enjoy the ultimate flexibility on long calls without worrying about the battery running out. Another exceptional feature is the baby monitor function, which gives your C620A the full functionality of a baby phone, including a talk-back function that lets you talk to your children remotely.
Other useful features include:
- a digital answer machine,
- 250-entry address book,
- call management protection options with nuisance call blocking
- time-controlled call silencing (Do Not Disturb mode),
- and expandability up to 6 handsets.
Fourth, and our last recommendation for this year, is the BT 8500 with advanced call blocking so you can block 100% of nuisance calls. The BT8500 is possibly one of the best home phones. It is foolproof, with BT’s Call Guardian technology screening all calls that come in, so numbers in your address book get pushed through automatically, while all other numbers have to state their identity before the phone even rings, so you can chose whether to accept the call, send it to voicemail, or block it.
All rejected calls are automatically added to the blocked numbers list, which can accommodate up to 1,000 unique numbers, so you will never take unwanted calls. The “Do Not Disturb” mode lets you enjoy some peace and quiet when you don’t want the phone to ring. The BT8500 also boasts an answering machine with capacity for 60 minutes of messages that can be accessed remotely, an elegant design with a 1.8-inch colour display, and ease of use, including the ability to set up a 3-way call.
As you can see from the list, these are some really amazing home phones with state-of-the-art technology for modern convenience. Which one works for you?
