Review of "B & O Beocom 4"
This phone is stunning to look at. It is simple and minimal in it's design and function. It sounds good but, no better than other much less costly phones I've owned.
It's intuitive in it's functions and ease of use ( mainly due to the spinning wheel and centered select button within the wheel a la The Apple IPod).
The phone hasn't a page function for misplacement of the handset ( which I've done on many ocassions). I've never seen a modern cordless phone without a paging function.
The battery is not servicable , replaceable by its' owner. This again I've never seen on any modern (recent model) cordless phone. You must bring the phone back to your B&O dealer if the battery needs replacing.
None the less I've decided to keep the phone as I love the aesthetics. It just looks teriffic, a piece of sculptural art. I can hardly pass it without stealing a glance of admiration.
Do the Pro's outweigh the Con's? If you've alot of discretionary income and you like it than the answer is obvious. If your income is of more modest means I suggest you look elsewhere. There are many far less expensive phones as good.
