Excellent Allrounder


So easy to set up. Lovely clear sound, large buttons and quite a large screen. Very stylish but easy to use, suitable for people with earing aids. Would definitely buy again.

Incoming call voice quality is poor.


" The sound quality on this telephone is not good as dark as I am concerned. I need someone else to listen to the quality of an incoming call and if the result tallies with my experience then I will be asking Argos for a refund. "

Uitstekend geschikt voor de doelgroep


De DECT telefoon bij een senior in de buurt deed het niet meer. In overleg hebben wij voor deze telefoon gekozen. Prima toestel onze senior is heel tevreden.

Duidelijk leesbaar display en toetsen
