Panasonic KX-TGK222 Cordless Phone with Answering Machine ( Hands Free Functionality, Low Radiation )
About this deal
This is actually something that Google launched on its brand new Pixel 3 recently, but BT have been doing it for much longer. I marginally preferred the look and functions of the Panasonic, which is why the BT models come second in my list – but we’re talking degrees of difference rather than a gulf.
Our favourite feature is a “do not disturb” mode, which enables you to catch up on your zzzzs without unwanted interruption. With clear sound, you’ll never miss a message again, and there’s also the option to record your own personalised greeting. Among the usual features (aside from one major omission that I’ll get to in a minute) there’s also compatibility with hearing aids, which should reduce background noise and make it easier to hear the person on the other end of the line.The main points of difference between most cordless phones are talk time, phonebook size and the style of display used. It doesn’t take me to tell you that our smartphone addiction is revealing some knock-on consequences, from the relatively menial (thumb tendonitis) to the seriously worrying (mental health issues).
The text on the screen is also large enough to be easily legible and the few menu buttons are self-explanatory enough. In many ways the tech that time forgot, the world of cordless phones has remained largely unchanged for years.Allegedly Gigaset do the best with a variety of special equalising features but I really doubt the layperson will be able to hear much difference between them all. With this Panasonic cordless system, up to four smartphones or tablets can be registered to the base station, over Wi-FI, using the Smartphone Connect app (available for both iOS and Android) on your mobile.
As a result of this, there is a commonly accepted tolerance level by which Plasma/LCD screens may display such imperfections without being classified as faulty. The enhanced user interface offers a choice of simple mode and expert mode, so if the phone is going to a technophobic household you can hide any unwanted complexity from view.Boasting a unique shape, the KX-TGK222EM is as much a design statement as it is an excellent cordless phone.
