Poor Sound Quality, Weak Signal, Lacks Features, Poor Battery Life
+ The phone is pretty+ The display is easy to read+ Comes w/and uses two AAA rechargeable batteries, which is also a minus as the charge is reflected by the short usage time.- Charge doesn't last long AT ALL - especially if you mess around in the menus, or choose songs for ring tones, and ESPECIALLY if you use a headset. - Unless youre in a very quiet environment it can be difficult to hear through the handset. Fortunately there is a jack for a headset, which helps w/the sound issue, however it creates another problem.....- While using a headset battery consumption is GREATLY INCREASED so that the charge diminishes from short to RIDICULOUSLY SHORT; this may be b/c the sound comes out of the handset even while using a headset. :-/ (Copied from Philips Website: Note: when you use the hands-free function the consumption is much higher than in normal mode, and as a result the total talk time / standby will be reduced.)- Call clarity is often poor even when right next to the base.- User interface is ridiculously cumbersome, and NOT user friendly.** I paid $50+ for this phone at [...]when the DECT technology was new...I feel VERY cheated.
