I’d have given five stars but a well-implemented dect phone with lots of features is let down by the volume and boost buttons on the side. They are far too easily activated unintentionally. I notice that it doesn’t ring immediately on an incoming call – not until after the first two beats when compared with a wired phone on the same line.
Purchased for aged relative with visual and hearing difficulty. Telephone fits all requirements and is reatively easy to use. Two memory buttons have given her confidence in the phone should she be in a panic or forget other ways of calling. Adjustments to volume of phone also useful. Well pleased with the facilities.

Very good phone for the hard of hearing. I bought this phone for my elderly parents as their hearing was getting worse and l wanted a phone that they could hear ringing and also hear who ever spoke to them with the option of pressing the boost button on to hear more louder. This phone fits the bill perfectly,the buttons are large enough to see. The instruction book was straightforward and not complicated, although when the trip switch switch off and then put back on it necessitate the removal of the batteries from the back of the phone and then put back in to get it working again. L think this is common problem with cordless phones. My parents are happy with this phone more so with me because when l am phoning in them they can at least hear the phone and listen to my conservation. Also there is a light on the phone which flashes when someone is ringing you.
Ordered for elderly lady with hearing problems. We charged them up on arrival then instructed her in their use. She understood and spent the morning calling family and friends and was able to have a proper conversation at last. Early days into reliability, but first impressions are great.
