The Tesco Value slimline gondola phone costs less than £4 so surely for that price you can't get much you might be thinking. What you do get is a simple and basic phone which does a good job and is an ideal back up phone for power cuts when the fancy cordless house phone won't work because the electricity is off.What you get for your £4 is a corded phone which comes in two parts. The handset contains the number pad, the keys are rubber circles and a nice distance apart so nice and easy to see and press. The base can either be desk or wall mounted and contains rubber feet for on the desk or a hanger at the back for on the walls. You have the option of writing some numbers on the base which is a good thing as you don't have the ability to store numbers on the phone. The two parts are connected by a curly wire which is a bit of a nightmare to clean but a reasonable length. A longer white wire to attach the phone to the socket also comes as standard and is a good long length too.
The phone is not much of a looker, it is very plain and the phone has absolutely no extra features apart from a last number redial button.I ended up using the Value phone for a prolonged period of time from when my old cordless died until I updated and the phone is sturdy and reliable. The ringer is a standard ringing noise and you have the ability to change the volume from loud to ear splittingly loud so you will never miss a call. I have always found that call clarity has been perfect both when making and receiving calls and I've got no complaints about the phone at all.
If you are looking for a cool phone then give the Tesco Value model a miss but for a second phone or a back up in case the electric goes off it is a perfect solution especially as it is small and easy to store away when not in use.
