  • Critical design weakness for "rugged phone"
    Reviewed by Raz - November 23, 2019

    The charging pins on this handset are cheap and susceptible to breakage. it is basically a single strip of folded metal that fits into the cradle contacts. However, with hurried use (I field 50+_ calls a day), the pins can fold up towards the handset if they are not placed precisely on the cradle. This halts any charging, and the battery will drain. Not good... but you can bend the pins back into place. Problem lies if they are again bent, as the metal fatigues, and will snap, yielding useless your now unchangeable "rugged" phone. Fix this cheap design - I looked at other Vtech's and they had similar flaws. Am gonna try to return.

  • Good tool
    Reviewed by Max - November 19, 2020

    Perhaps it is not the most rugged phone in the world, but it is pretty good! It works well and it has good range and sound, both microphone and speaker. I haven't made many calls yet with it, but as of now I am very satisfied. Might edit this later if anything arises. I bought this so I can put my smartphone away when home, and test this system for my dad (who is 63) who hates talking on a smartphone and logs hours of calls every week.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
