Best Cordless Phone

Panasonic's high end cordless phones are designated DECT 6.0 Plus phones to draw our attention to their advanced features. These include extended range, enhanced call clarity, power backup, call blocking, talking caller ID .... They are without a doubt the most advanced cordless phones available.

Any in depth comparison of Panasonic cordless phones with the alternatives is very revealing. For whatever reason most of Panasonic's competitors produce generic products with little or no evidence of innovation. Their focus is on cutting costs through every available means.
