Phone ease of use

Phone ease of use

This score mainly covers handset weight and comfort, talk time, ease of phone setup and use, readability of labels; accessibility, location, and size of controls and buttons; and other convenience factors, such as auto talk, any key answer, lighted keypad, one-touch dial, and others.

 /  5
Range

Range

This score reflects the tested distance a phone can maintain an intelligible conversation, make a call and receive a call. We report a score instead of a distance because range can differ greatly due to variables such as phone base location, home size, room configuration, construction materials, multiple stories, wiring and other electrical and physical interferences. A low scoring phone is more likely to have some connection problems at short distances such as between different floors in a house or when going outside the house while a high scoring phone is less likely to have connection problems and can typically keep a clean signal in all but the largest of homes or when you go outside your home.

Maximum no. of cordless handsets

Maximum no. of cordless handsets

The manufacturer stated maximum number of cordless handsets that can be registered to a multiple handset capable phone. A phone that can support up to eight handsets, for example, can have eight handsets registered to the base, but you may only be able to use four at once, say two using handset to handset intercom, while two others conference with an outside party. Others may just allow one handset to be used at a time, so can't be used like an additional (extension) phone you have connected to the same phone line. NA represents not applicable. See Buying Guide for more information.
