The 9 best corded phones

Many of us gave up the corded phone long time ago. Why do you need it if cell phone calls are so cheap? However, in some cases, a city phone is quite useful. First, its number will be shorter – if necessary, your relatives and colleagues can remember it. Secondly, the offices and large organizations can not do without such phone. Thirdly, the landline will definitely get through to you if your cell phone is out of juice. In short, it makes sense to get acquainted with the best phones that connect to the city network.

Paliha P-750

Rating: 4.9

Paliha P-750

Very interesting “tube” of Russian production. Its plastic body is painted silver. Most of the top panel is occupied by the buttons. For dialing, the ones in gray are used. Above them are other keys, already painted in black – they are used to call different functions and move to a particular entry in the phone book. Also, the buttons responsible for receiving and rejecting calls are located here.

This phone differs from cheaper analogues with the ability to record a conversation. You can also play it back with the play buttons on the right side of the display. And speaking of the screen, you can’t help but notice that it’s gorgeous! All information is displayed in orange characters, while the backing is completely black. Answer and cancel buttons are used to confirm or cancel the call – the green check mark and the red cross are not without reason.

The handset is attached to the usual twisted cable. There is no wireless mode of use here, which imposes some limitations on the phone – this is exactly the option for the office, at home you will want more convenience.

This unit includes a multifunctional caller ID. You can also easily record a message, which will then be used as an answering machine. There is also a recoding tool for parallel phones with CID. The possibility of connecting the device to the computer can be useful. Including it may be necessary for rapid filling of the phone book.

It is interesting that this model is quite enough of the electricity that is distributed via analog phone lines. There is no power adapter in the set, it simply isn’t necessary! Returning to the functions of the device, it is impossible not to mention the presence of “night peace. Switching to this mode helps to turn off the buzzer. The aforementioned answering machine is also not as simple as it may seem. You can assign specific messages to a particular number. And you can also use this feature to listen to the room where the phone is installed – you need it to check if an intruder entered the office. In a word, the manufacturer has realized a peculiar remote control.

It’s probably one of the best corded phones out there today. It has the widest functionality. The telephone book can hold 500 numbers. The answering machine allows to write up to 120 minutes of the interlocutor’s speech. The only annoyance is that to synchronize with your computer requires an adapter “Teleport-Palih”, which is sold separately. And it costs quite a bit. Otherwise there is nothing to complain about.

Advantages

  • The display is great;
  • Big number of buttons;
  • It is possible to change the tone of voice;
  • There is a quality caller ID;
  • An elaborate answering machine;
  • It is possible to work without a power supply;
  • A wide range of functions;
  • The keyboard has a backlight;
  • Remote control of the answering machine is possible.

Disadvantages

  • Hard reset erases all the contents of the memory;
  • To connect to a PC you need an expensive module “Teleport”;
  • In some cases, the power supply is still needed;
  • The price tag may seem overpriced.

anasonic KX-TS2570

Rating: 4.8

Panasonic KX-TS2570

The Japanese company Panasonic has left the smartphone market quite a long time ago. But they still make wire telephones. Two of these models even made it to our rating, they are so good! In particular, many buyers will be happy with the device under the name Panasonic KX-TS2570. This device can be painted either white or black. Note the color is different not only the body, but also the buttons. By the way, there is not only the usual numeric keypad. In addition the device has received a lot of other buttons, needed to move through the menu and call all sorts of functions.

Of course, the device got automatic number identifier. The software also knows how to remember the numbers you enter – the last twenty of them you can quickly select using the direction buttons. It should be mentioned that the display is very simple. It displays only three lines of characters. However, this does not interfere with the use of the telephone book, as well as to quickly find out the date and time.

This model provides an answering machine function. Of course, it does not need any tapes – all messages and responses from interlocutors are stored in built-in memory. The voice of the caller comes from the loudspeaker, placed somewhere under the case. This feature can, of course, be disabled. Also, no one interferes at any time to pick up the phone, starting to talk. By the way, the tube has a corded attachment. So it is not a DECT-phone, so it does not make sense to use it at home. It is interesting that you can connect an additional headset to the device – for this there is a jack.

This phone has many other features that may be useful to, say, a secretary. For example, it can be said about autodialing. Or about a programmable “Flash” button. The only complaint is the lack of the tone-change feature. But it seems to us that the minimum number of buyers need it, so we did not even put this item in the list of disadvantages.

It’s nice that the buttons are not only on the base station, but also on the handset, where the volume control is located. There is also the possibility of changing the speakerphone volume, even in a wider range.

Advantages

  • There is a port for additional equipment;
  • There is a headset jack;
  • Not a very high cost;
  • One-button dialing of three numbers is possible;
  • There is a function of “Flash”;
  • Separate volume control of the speaker in the handset and speakerphone;
  • There is a digital answering machine;
  • Quite a wide range of functions of the phone.

Disadvantages

  • The memory of the phone book is designed for 50 numbers;
  • Only a maximum of 15 minutes of voice recording;
  • There is no synchronization with the PC;
  • The display can fail quite quickly (an obvious marriage);
  • No backlight.

anasonic KX-TS2365

Rating: 4.7

Panasonic KX-TS2365

This representative of our rating differs from the previous one only by some simplifications. Externally it is almost the same corded phone. It, too, is available in two colors. The buttons and display of the device also have no backlight, which annoys some buyers perhaps the most. Above the numeric keypad there is a block with additional buttons. The display got the most serious simplification – it became a one-line display. You can forget about any menu, only the basic information is displayed on the screen. For example, the number of the caller or the current time (the date does not fit here anymore).

For the sake of cost reduction, the manufacturer has decided to minimize the amount of memory. And don’t even remember that now memory is one of the cheapest components. The development of this corded phone goes back to the mid-2000s, when the situation was quite different. As a result, the Japanese producer has spared only on a tiny volume, due to which the telephone book contains only 30 numbers. It’s interesting that 20 of them can be dialed with a single button.

Fortunately, some of the features from this corded phone are still in place. For example, the device has got speed dial. Call limitation is also available here. Separate volume controls in the speakerphone and handset did not disappear either. By the way, the speakerphone works without any complaints, by default it is displayed there if the person does not want to pick up the phone. If at any time you want to discuss confidential information, you can mute the microphone – it is done by pressing a single button. There is also a jack for a headset – this can be useful if the phone will be used by two people.

Unfortunately, Panasonic KX-TS2365 can’t boast anything else interesting. You can’t consider dialing without lifting the receiver to be something special? In the Russian retail for this model are around 2500 rubles. For this money you get the simplest device, lacking even an answering machine. You can not connect it to the phone in any way – there is simply no extension port. In short, such a corded phone will not suit every office. At the same time, it is not suitable for home use – the average person would want to get a DECT model, so as not to be tied to the base station twisted cord.

Advantages

  • Decently realized one-button set;
  • A speakerphone is built-in;
  • The volume is adjustable both on the handset and on the speakerphone;
  • Accelerated dialing is implemented;
  • Call forwarding is possible;
  • Low cost;
  • It is possible to connect a headset.

Disadvantages

  • A small amount of memory;
  • No backlight;
  • No answering machine;
  • Too small display.

REBELL Rus 28

Rating: 4.6

REBELL Russia 28

This representative of our rating exists as much as eight colors (the most common are four of them). Sell it for about 3000 rubles. I would like to get for the money a model with an answering machine, but that’s not the case. You also can not connect a separate device of this kind – there is no port for connecting additional equipment. Moreover, there is no headset jack! This means that the two of you can only use the phone with a speakerphone, when the other people around you can hear the other person’s voice.

This corded phone was not developed yesterday, but not in the mid-2000s. Due to this fact, it received a medium amount of memory. To be exact, the phone book can hold 100 numbers. Also, the device stores the same number of the last dialled numbers. In a word, many buyers are sure to be satisfied with these figures.

You can dial here even without lifting the handset first. Talking on the speakerphone does not cause any problems either. At any time the microphone can be turned off – for this purpose there is a dedicated button. There is also a volume control. Of course, the volume of the speakerphone and handset can be changed separately.

The pleasant feelings of using a corded phone are due to the display. No, it is a character phone, and it only displays 9 characters at the most. However, we must admit that all characters are well readable, even if there is no backlight. But the most important is that the display is not defective, it does not fail right after the warranty period is over.

The phone needs to be powered from 220V. And don’t forget to put in a couple of batteries – they provide the backup function, thanks to them all the numbers will be stored in the memory even in case of power failure.

It is interesting that the domestic manufacturer has decided to equip its creation with atypical functionality. In particular, there is a calculator, timer and stopwatch. And while the first may come in handy, you can’t say the same about the other functions.

REBELL Rus 28 has a white and black lists. You should enter undesirable numbers in the second of them. For example, those from which spam is heard. You’ll also be pleased with the redial function. The Gigaset DA610 has a backlit speakerphone and you can activate night mode the moment the caller leaves the office.

Probably, buying REBELL Russia 28 is the best way to support the Russian manufacturer. The basic functionality is implemented here in the best way. The only regret is the absence of an answering machine and some other features. You’ll find them in the more expensive corded phones – the Gigaset DA610 belongs in the budget range.

Advantages

  • Automatic caller ID works well;
  • The telephone book is designed for 100 numbers;
  • There is a speakerphone;
  • Autodialing is possible;
  • The white and black lists are present;
  • Some additional functions are available;
  • The night mode is implemented;
  • The price of the Gigaset DA610 can’t be beaten;
  • Remote control of the phone is possible.

Disadvantages

  • No backlight;
  • Display still will not suit everyone;
  • No answering machine;
  • Fast scrolling numbers on the screen.

Gigaset DA610

Rating: 4.5

Gigaset DA610

Many corded phones have a display that shows certain information. The problem with this screen is that it is generally not easy to look at it. That’s why the manufacturer of the Gigaset DA610 chose to house the display on a specially slanted pad. As a result the screen is positioned at the right angle to the user sitting at the table.

The Gigaset DA610 is available in Russian online stores for only 2,500 rubles. It seems that you don’t get any wide functionality for such money. However, the device is actually quite capable of surprising. No, there is no answering machine. You can mute the microphone, but you can also mute it by pressing the melody function and not by muteing the caller.

As for the aforementioned display, it shows the number caller, date, time and duration of the call. You can also store up to 50 phone numbers in the phonebook. By the way, 10 numbers can be called by means of speed dial, which can’t help but please. The display is a two-line display. The largest font is the phone number, while a slightly smaller font size has auxiliary information located just above.

Incoming calls are accompanied by a particular melody. There are 10 of them in total. Each melody can be adjusted in volume. Of course, you can completely disable the sound alert – then the call will signal only the LED. At the same time the most important contacts assigned VIP status will be accompanied by a call.

Wired phone stores 50 last dialed and incoming numbers. Any of them can be dialed up or put in the phone book. There is also a possibility to block outgoing calls to some specific numbers.

The Gigaset DA610 comes with a speakerphone. This means that you can talk to your interlocutor also by speakerphone. You can also connect the Gigaset DA610 to your private office telephone network. Interesting that the device can function without additional power supply. The producer also claims the device is compatible with hearing aids. The function of the keyboard lock looks unexpected. You might not need it in the office, but it comes in handy at home as a child safety feature.

And what can you complain about the person who bought this phone? Perhaps the lack of volume control for the voice of the interlocutor. Somebody will be upset by the lack of possibility to implement call forwarding. But most of all, the lack of Cyrillic support in the phonebook is disappointing. After this you immediately understand that the device was not developed by the Russians.

Advantages

  • Low cost;
  • Power from the telephone line;
  • The display is a two line;
  • Well-working speakerphone;
  • A decent amount of memory;
  • One-button dialing of ten numbers is implemented;
  • Some contacts can be a priority;
  • The keyboard lock is implemented.

Disadvantages

  • Setting by code, without a manual can not cope;
  • No answering machine;
  • There is no volume adjustment of the interlocutor’s voice;
  • You cannot hang it on the wall;
  • No backlight;
  • Cyrillic alphabet is not supported.

Siemens Euroset 5020

Rating: 4.5

Siemens Euroset 5020

Many citizens of our country warmly remember cell phones Siemens. But not everyone will remember that the German company also produced corded phones. Moreover, it is still busy producing them! For example you can buy Euroset 5020 without any problems right now by visiting the store, which sells such devices. It’s not the latest model, though. So it is possible that you can not find it – at the time of writing was sold out of stock.

Here, too, there is a slanted block with a display. It is monochrome and has two lines. Its size is 14×74 mm. It seems that this is enough to see all the useful information. Traditionally, the caller’s number is written in the largest font. Above it there is an auxiliary line, in which there are symbols indicating one or another running function.

Unfortunately, it can’t be said that this phone offers a bundle of possibilities. For example, there is no digital answering machine. Nor, of course, is it possible to connect it as a separate unit. But there is some memory where the numbers of the last 50 last received calls are stored. And the user can redial the last five dialed numbers, which is also a good result. As for the telephone book, it is designed for 20 numbers. More importantly, each can be assigned to a speed dial! In short, some secretary will definitely like these features!

Otherwise, this corded phone is hardly capable of surprising. It can operate in pulse and tone modes. On the bottom of the device there are rubber pads, thanks to which the device does not slip even on a completely smooth table. Also the phone has a built-in clock – in moments of tranquility they are shown on the aforementioned display.

Of course, the manufacturer has not forgotten about the speakerphone. Its volume can be easily adjusted. The microphone can be switched off at any time, for example, to discuss confidential information with the manager. As for talking on the handset, it is implemented as simply as possible. Although it should be noted that in this case, too, the volume control is available. By the way, the twisted cable can be detached from the tube. You’ll need this feature in case the cable gets damaged and you need to replace it.

This corded phone is able to display the time of the current call. That’s probably the feature every single one of our headsets has. Note that this device requires 220V power to work properly. Appropriate AC adapter is included.

Advantages

  • There is a Russian-language manual in the box with the phone;
  • There is a nice display, tilted toward the user;
  • The volume of the speakerphone and the speaker in the handset is regulated separately;
  • The device remembers the last 50 calls received;
  • Long distance calls are blocked.

Disadvantages

  • It is impossible to hang it on the wall;
  • There is no answering machine;
  • Not the most capacious phone book;
  • No backlight;
  • No auto-dial and some other useful features.

anasonic KX-TS2356

Rating: 4.4

Panasonic KX-TS2356

Another corded phone from the Japanese company Panasonic in our rating. The model called KX-TS2356 is the most compact. It can also be considered one of the most simplified. There is no answering machine. No backlight of any kind. And the number of keys is reduced to a minimum. It is pleasant, that at least there was a place for the full-fledged 16-digit display. Most of the time it displays the clock. If someone calls you (or you have dialed someone) the phone number is shown on the screen. Also with the help of display and special buttons in the right bottom corner you can see the content of the telephone directory.

Perhaps just Panasonic KX-TS2356 has perfectly realized phonebook! The thing is that it is russified – you can easily add the names of the contacts in Cyrillic. Also the size of this telephone book pleases – you can enter 50 numbers in it. Beauty!

As for the log of incoming calls, it also holds 50 records. Calling the last of the stored numbers takes seconds. It is only possible to talk on the handset. Alas, to reduce the size and cost the manufacturer decided to get rid of the so-called speakerphone. The lack of handsfree makes you realize that this is more of a home phone than an office phone. This is evidenced by the ability to wall mount.

It is interesting that the device has a light indicator call. This is good news for those who like to turn off the call from time to time. By the way, you can not only turn it off, but also adjust the volume (3 levels are available). The device also has a programmable button “Flash”, which in phones with such a price tag is not common.

Back to memory. It also stores the last 20 numbers dialed. And if you look carefully at the body of the device, you can find a special jack. It is a port for additional telephone equipment. And that’s a real surprise! This is the kind of port you do not expect to get when you buy a corded phone for 1500-2000 rubles. However, this connector may be needed somewhere in the office. The average user will not find it useful, and we have already found out that this device is mostly intended for home installation.

This device has got a dial padlock. It can be called a protection against children – they are the ones who usually dial a number quite casually, just for fun. You should also be pleased with the function to turn off the microphone. Although, again, not a fact that it will be useful at least once if the phone is used at home.

In short, it is a very good corded phone. But for home use, the pile of its features seems too abundant. In the office, on the contrary, it is better to install a more functional device.

Advantages

  • There is a port for additional telephone equipment;
  • There is a capacious russified phone book;
  • The quality 16-digit LCD display;
  • Memory for a large number of incoming and outgoing numbers;
  • There is a “Flash” button;
  • It is possible to disable the microphone;
  • There is an indicator of the call;
  • Caller ID works without any problems;
  • Low cost;
  • The dialing lock is available;
  • Can be installed on the wall.

Disadvantages

  • No speakerphone;
  • No answering machine;
  • No backlight;
  • There are no speed dial buttons;
  • Slides on a flat surface;
  • Buttons wear out quite quickly.

Ritmix RT-570

Rating: 4.3

Ritmix RT-570

Traditionally our rating is finished with the cheapest devices. For Ritmix RT-570 in Russian stores are asked about 1000-1500 rubles. This alone tells you that you can not expect much functionality. But this is only one of the problems. The other is in the appearance. It is absolutely unclear how the manufacturer liked the design! The device has overly large buttons, painted in gray. However, you quickly understand why the keys are so big. The purpose of this phone is hinted at by the red SOS button. Yes, this is a natural grandmother’s phone! It is assumed that this phone will be installed in the apartments of the elderly, who may suddenly need help.

Despite the purpose of the device, in some respects it is not inferior to office analogues. For example, it uses a nice segment display. Figures on it are clearly visible even though you have to look at the screen at a very sharp angle. The display not only shows the number you call from, but also the date and time – they are listed on the top line.

The device has some memory space. For example, you can quickly call the display of the last five dialed numbers. As for incoming calls, the device remembers them in the amount of as many as 38 numbers! But the full-fledged phone book here, unfortunately, no. Apparently, the manufacturer has decided not to bother with the introduction of text entry. Of course, there is no answering machine. And to think of call forwarding and other purely office functions is not worth mentioning at all.

Despite the low cost, Ritmix RT-570 can boast a speakerphone. Recall, this is the name of the speaker that provides a loudspeaker. Please note, the microphone cannot be disabled – there is simply no corresponding button. But it is possible to adjust the volume of the caller’s voice is present. This is important, especially if the corded phone will actually be used by an elderly person!

This phone does not need power from the mains. However, you will definitely need batteries, without them, the display and memory will not work.

Advantages

  • The dialing is realized without lifting the receiver;
  • It has a protection number from accidental deletion;
  • There is a button to call 911;
  • There is a pretty good display;
  • There are an alarm clock and clock;
  • The volume of the interlocutor’s voice is adjustable;
  • The memory can hold 38 numbers of incoming calls;
  • Very low cost;
  • There is a speakerphone;
  • Does not require power supply from 220 V.

Disadvantages

  • There is no answering machine;
  • There is no phone book;
  • The wire seems to be too short;
  • No backlight;
  • There is no possibility to disable the microphone;
  • Functionality can not be called any broader.

teXet TX-259

Rating: 4.2

teXet TX-259

The teXet brand is familiar to us from inexpensive smartphones, e-books and some other devices. This brand also produces corded phones. One of them is in our rating. The teXet TX-259 completes it, so you can guess about its main advantage: the very low cost. This device is sold for not more than 1000 rubles. At the same time you get a pretty decent unit, which has many useful features. There is even a segment display, even though it is poorly visible in the dark! However, in the dark you can activate its backlight – it is surprising that such a simple feature is not in much more expensive wired phones. Many buyers will appreciate the fact that the screen has three lines. The largest font traditionally has a telephone number. The font is smaller and gives out all sorts of service information – right up to the testimony of the built-in thermometer.

But the display alone is not the only good thing about this corded phone. The device has a very nice design. On its body you can find the holes of the speaker. This fact demonstrates the presence of a speakerphone. Also, the device includes some memory. The phone remembers the last 35 numbers from which you were called. Well, the last 9 of these can easily be dialed automatically. But there’s no phone book. It feels like the manufacturer decided to save money on this.

What else can please you with this corded phone? Perhaps a separate button SOS, by pressing which is to call the rescue. It is not painted red, but it is for the best – this would spoil the appearance of the device. You can also find the snooze and auto-dial button. Yes, there is an auto-dial function, which is not present in many competitors, even having a slightly higher price tag!

As for adjusting the ringer volume (there are five ringtones to choose from), there are only two levels available to the user. You can’t change the volume of the caller’s voice at all, which is unfortunate. But otherwise, this would not be a budget corded phone, but a real gold!

Advantages

  • There is autodialing;
  • There is an SOS button;
  • Nice design;
  • Large backlit display;
  • There is a thermometer;
  • Stable caller ID;
  • There is a speakerphone;
  • Very low cost.

Disadvantages

  • No answering machine;
  • Not particularly well thought out volume control;
  • No phone book;
  • No microphone can be muted.

Conclusion

This is the list of the best corded phones currently available. Note that in recent years such devices are no longer in widespread demand, and therefore their manufacturers have started to seriously save. There is also a ceiling of technology – the most advanced models have maximum functionality, users simply do not need more.
