I bought this phone a few months ago and am really happy with it so far. Both the receiver and the base unit are nice and compact, yet feel sturdy and well-made.

It's pretty easy to operate and even has a sim card reader so you can copy all the numbers off your mobile, which is really handy. It also has a colour screen and looks good in general (I have the black version). It's also possible to buy further handsets for different rooms as well.

Audio quality is great and as is the range and battery life. Because the answer machine is digital, it's really easy to skip through and delete your messages.

Two other nice little features about this phone are that it will tell you if you've missed a call (and who it was if you have CLI) even if they didn't leave a message, and (assuming your call provider has the service) you can send and receive SMS text messages.

The only downsides to this phone is that the numerical buttons are small and fiddly and the menu screens could be more intuitive.
