Review of "Gigaset C475"
Hello, I'm Nick - 20 years of age from Swansea.... Thanks so much for all of your rates, very much appreciated :) X
Hello everyone and welcome to this review!Well I am a fan of Siemens phones. A year ago I bought a two handset system which I was over the moon with. But! we had used them so much that they had seen better days and were in need for replacement. This is where this lovely handset came into my life:)
We have to own a cordless phone in our home. If we had a wired one then it would quite honestly never get answered!! We are that lazy:(I bought this phone in Swansea market at a phone store Brand New for £49.
An okay price I suppose but I like to support the smaller businesses around where I live so ofcourse - I had to get it from the market.When I got this home I was sure I had bought the right phone for our needs because it felt quality before I even opened the box.
In the box I found:
A fancy looking base station
A telephone Line cord
A Rechargeable battery
A belt Clip
I must say I was very pleased with the quality of this handset once opened.. It felt lovely to hold and it is very light.So it was time to set up this lovely phone. First of all the battery must be charged as with all cordless phones for 24 hours prior to use. Soooo our lovely old Siemens still had a days use to go! aww poor things. We really do over use our phones. A family of 6 and free phone calls..... and teenagers, haha.
In the instructions there is a section that describes siemens new sound and microphone system. It is described as HD Sound and believe me! It is pretty good.The battery on this phone is said to last 12 hours and I do believe this! It is in use throughout the whole day and at night it still easily has a bar. I admit that the battery is not as good as our old phones but maybe it needs some settling in! and well it has got a colour screen which could drain it slightly faster.
Yup! This phone has a colour screen... Gone are the days of the non - attractive black and white screens... But I did actually prefer the older screens! not a huge problem though.Phones Features
This phone has many great features:Answer machine - The answer machine is really great. I have tried BT answerphones in the past but I found the ladies voice so boring! Gosh I am fussy haha, but the Siemens lady is so much more interesting.... It does not sound like a robot! more like a real person. The answer machine has a recording time of 40 Minutes! WOW thats one long message. Gone are the days of deleting my messages when my 10 minutes are full:) Yayy
Colour screen - This colour screen really is quite good quality. Although I must be honest I do not think there is much it is useful for. The phone does have some games on it - Tetris , Bongo and run chicken. I have no idea what they do as I never play games. Especially on a home phone!ECO Dect - Did you know that your cordless phone... even in standby mode is pumping radio waves throughout your house 24/7?! These waves are thought to be harmful but Siemens has helped this.. When your phone is not in a call or on the docking station the Siemens lowers the output of waves by 75%!! Great, a healthy phone:)
Phonebook - Store both names and numbers on this phone! Shows who is calling when it rings. Very handy!Handsfree speakerphone - This is great, I can now use the phone while cooking, just plop it on the work surface and talk as normal. The sound is great and it is very loud.
300 metre range. Easily use your phone around the home and garden with no static or noise at all. Just as clear as a corded phone!Overall this phone is fantastic, just like my old Siemens but even better! You can also easily add extra handsets with a press of a button. Great if you want more phones around the home.
The buttons are also very sensitive on ths phone. Great if you like to dial quick)
5** From me
Hope this has helped you:)
