Summary: As the review suggests, they take a while to set up and the choice of ringtones is appalling - gone are the days of a standard telephone ring. Even their so called "classic ringtone" is embarrassing. Thankfully no one really calls our landline so I don't have to hear the hideous ringtone. I put one in the bedroom and can't switch off the backlight which illuminates the whole room - have tried various settings but to no avail. Thankfully the rest of it works as it should.
Summary: Recently my phones inside my home were beginning to not work as well as they did and I managed to win some new ones designed by Siemens, this is them. == The Design == This phone is designed to try and look stylish by having a nice sleek look. You have the main part of the phone in black so the earphone is in black and the screen has a black background as well. Where the keypad is located there is a grey surround colour which helps highlight the keypad rather well.
Summary: I bought this phone thinking it would be a step up from my old Binatone phone, how wrong I was. I consider myself to have excellent hearing but when I tried this phone out I couldn't hear anyone speaking on the other end, it was all muffled. I was so disappointed, think I shall be sticking to the old Binatones in future.
Pros: Coloured Skins Available, Good design, Good sound quality, Lots of features, Good Battery life, Lightweight, Average Ring Tones, Not easy to set up, Black Plastic
Summary: I needed a second handset but my old telephone is a couple of years old so I decided to purchase another. I always check very carefully many handsets before purchase, checking which one measure sup to my requirements. Siemens(gigaset) is german quality engineered, the sound from conversation seems low but the quality is outstanding so very clear. Their are many features and this may make buyers think its complicated, it isn't, as many of them you may never use.
Pros: Well made, Clear speech, Nice look, Haven't found any yet
Excerpt: "Only had this a few days but the quality is exceptional. I wanted a cordless phone that I could text on and also have speed dial as well as an answerphone. As it didn't say anything on the box about 2 of these priorities the sales assistant had to open the box. I decided to get the duo pack as it was only £10 more than the single. At £39.99 in Currys, this was excellent value. At home it was easy to set up. I put all my names and numbers on and the ...
