What we think: The SL785 was first released in Germany a few years ago to much critical acclaim. Picking up style awards left right and centre, and receiving rave reviews, there is a reason this phone is still on the market - it ‘s simply that good. Featuring a high quality metal exterior, slim design, and a brilliant TFT QVGA display, the SL785 speaks style, and having been made in Germany by those clever people at Gigaset, it is also one of the best performing phones ever to have graced our offices. We were blown away by the call clarity, and the loudspeaker quality is without a doubt the best we’ve come across. And with a whole host of features to take advantage of, it is clear why the SL785 has the top spot. It may come with a price tag, but if you have the money and want the best then it is most definitely worth it.

What we think: Not quite in the same league as the top entry, the CS3 nonetheless is certainly deserving of its spot at second place. Arguably the best performing phone within its budget range, and endorsed by Which? as a ‘Best Buy’, this has been one of our best-selling phones, and one we can reliably attest to making our customers happy. With the twin set a bargain at only £69.99, for which you’d be getting excellent sound quality, colour screen and user-friendly menus, the CS3 is a great cordless phone if you’re on a bit of a budget and looking for the best deal.

What we think: This phone exceeded all of our expectations. A super-stylish phone with all the features you could possibly want (with the exception of Bluetooth). If you liked the look of the SL785 but not the price then this is the choice for you. Just as high performing but without the metal exterior, the S795 is a perfect model for homes and offices (or a home offices). Great sound, fantastic colour screen, phonebook memory of up to 500, and a record time of up to 45 minutes, all for £59.99 (for the single), the S795 is another impressive achievement by Gigaset

What we think: We weren’t entirely convinced by the idea of a touch screen and keypad hybrid phone, but as soon as we got our hands on the S820A we just fell in love with it. Feature-rich and customisable, this is a definite must-have for those who like the latest and greatest in technology. One of the top-performing phones of 2013, we should have known better than to doubt the masters of producing the best cordless telephones!

What we think: The first entry from Panasonic, who certainly give Siemens a run for their money when it comes to making top quality cordless phones. The 8621 is a terrific model, offering so much more than its £99.99 (for the twin set) would suggest. Bluetooth, colour screen, superb loudspeaker, a separate base, and more... this is a phone that does not leave you wanting.

What we think: Another top of the range cordless phone from Gigaset that doesn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a sexy new phone for your home or office then look no further than the SL400A. Boasting the best in what Gigaset has to offer in terms of features and quality, and voted as “Phone of the Year” in Germany, we’re sure this will quickly become a firm favourite in the UK as well. And with its eye-catching, luxurious metal keypad and frame, and large colour screen, this is definitely one of the best looking phones on the market, which offers substance to back up its style.

What we think: A reliable all-rounder that is ideal for any environment – we recommend this phone for use in the home, in warehouses and offices. A ruggedized model, the E495, has been produced by Siemens to withstand rigorous use and demanding environments. And for the price, it doesn’t come much better than this.

What we think: The latest evolution of the Panasonic KX-TG 6000 Series - the 6721 - continues the legacy of offering top quality at a low price. A straightforward home phone providing excellent sound quality, uncomplicated features, and an in-built answering machine are what make this the best basic phone around and an absolute steal at just £41.50 for the twin!

What we think: With its bright full-colour 3.2” touch screen and genuine high-quality metal handset frame and charger, the Siemens Gigaset SL910A is a statement of style and excellence, and the most sophisticated phone on the market. Boasting a memory for up to 500 contacts (with space for 8 numbers and a photograph, per entry), a generous record time of up to 55 minutes on the answering machine, synchronisation of data (such as your Outlook contacts) via Bluetooth or mini-USB, and HSP for brilliant Voice Clarity, plus so many other features. The starting price may be high - £134.99 for the single, but for those prepared to shell out there is no doubt that you get what you pay for.

What we think: Last but certainly not least - the Siemens Gigaset C610A. This is a terrific phone, packed full of useful features including anonymous call silencing, and a day/night switch that silences the handset’s ringer while you sleep. We were especially impressed by the brilliant call quality, which was far superior to other models around the same price.

I have a binatone speak easy combo 3610, it is not very good with range, i have a 5 bed room house, the main phone is downstairs at the main door, one in the kitchen( 10 meters away ) shows low range, another upstairs also shows low range and keeps on giving the warning through out the night, so annoying. Yet the specs say 50 m indoor range. Not true

Interesting article. But I would be interested to read whether an answerphone has a flashing signal to let you know if a new message has come in. Friends without a flash are often slow to reply, while friends with one get back very fast.

The SL785 has an answering machine but the SL780 doesnt. Hope that helps.
