Purchased this phone recently from Harvey Norman. Phone works very well and was easy to set up. We linked an iPhone 7 and a Samsung Galaxy s8+ without any problems and they both answer and receive calls seemlessly (very nice to have more than just a single point a home for answering mobile calls).
Great product with great additional features!! A++
This works really good & can connect up to 4 smartphones, however the audio volume isn’t as loud as my iPhone 7, which is why I’m NOT giving it 5 Stars, but for home this is highly acceptable & can’t really complain. Uniden always make good quality home phones & cordless phones.
I bought this phone for my elderly mum who is hard of hearing based on reviews online and Choice. It rated highly with regard to sound quality and clarity which is what I was after, however the sound is terrible. My mum asked if she could just have her old telstra phone back so I now have this phone and I can see why she didn't want it. The sound is tinny and not very clear. My mum cannot understand what I am saying if I ring her on this phone so I don't use it if possible. Very disappointed with this phone.
One of the better cordless phones
Working out which cordless to buy has been a hassle. Checking reviews are met with all sorts from - no idea, expect too much & those which look like they a written by the products marketing dept. I researched this phone & the proof is in having bought & used it.
Admittedly, I have only owned Uniden (as couldn't find Panasonic with the great enough review - not that I won't continue to try in future)
1. DSS2415 - was fantastic, but now bulky (used AA batteries - in hindsight, they don't have the longevity or capacity for the long run - false economy)
2. Dect1615 - cheapo & despite the positive reviews, never buy unless you can't afford another $40-60. You get what you pay for & the extra few dollars appear to be light years difference in handset.
3. This phone XDECT8315 - has been very good. We live one acreage & it reached for up to 100m outside. It was for my elderly mother.
a) The download of numbers from your mobile is handy - though, it requires an extra step each time you want to search those numbers as they are stored in a separate folder to the local handset numbers.
b) Voice is much clearer (happy with clarity) & strong. Haven't tried to pair through with the mobile - may be too much for my mother to deal with.
c) Middle button is tricky - you need to use the very end of your finger (expects you to be a little too nimble - not for all)
d) Navigation is very one dimensional (red button doesn't get you immediately back to home screen - press twice & navigating to select a phone numbers takes 4 steps) - simple but a little inefficient.
This is what you get with cordless phones - so don't expect too much.
For the price (remember it is only $70-80), overall, would still recommend
