We have been selling landline telephones since before the first iPhone was released and whilst they may not be the household essential they once were landline phones are still used by millions of homes and business’ across the UK.
As self-proclaimed experts in Landline Phones we are uniquely placed to offer advice and guidance on what to look out for. No other online retailer hand-tests and rigorously assesses the merits of one model over another, or one brand over another. We speak to 1,000s of customers every week and undertake a comprehensive customer satisfaction survey throughout the year to gain even more insight into long term usage. The result of all this hard work is this round-up of the Best Landline Phones of the year! This is a live piece of work and is often updated throughout the year as and when we test new models or receive feedback about the most current telephones.
You may have been contacted by your landline provider or heard in the news that the UK will be upgrading its telephone network. What does this actually mean? Put simply, from 2025, instead of the old copper network that is in place right now all landline calls will go through broadband lines instead. The majority of users will experience a seamless transition, but there may be individuals who require new equipment or assistance to adapt to these modifications.
Unlike a lot of other review sites online that create listicles without ever having laid eyes on (let alone used or tested) the landline phones in question, we hold physical stock allowing us to thoroughly review and test each model. We also conduct customer surveys throughout the year to get feedback from people who have purchased and have a long-term insight into reliability and performance, which also forms part of our selection process. Our reputation is extremely important to us and our list is updated throughout the year as and when we test new models and/or get additional feedback from end users.
So, read on to discover our top picks!

Stylish and easy to use multi-handset phone that offers exceptional value
The Panasonic KX-TG6824 is a stylish and feature-packed quad set of landline phones from Panasonic, and lives up to their reputation for great sound and usability. With excellent call quality along with a volume boosting handsfree loudspeaker you can enjoy crystal-clear conversations. It also boasts a stylish, modern design, while also being remarkably easy to use. There's an answering machine with up to 30 minutes' recording time, and it even comes with a number of nuisance call blocking features. We were particularly impressed with the monochrome display, which is bright and easy to read. And for sheer value for money you'll be hard-pressed to find a better phone!
Big buttons and extra-loud volume make this ideal for older users.
Who said big button phones can't be stylish? The Gigaset E390A boasts the same design as the No.1 Best Buy but includes some additional features to make it easier for elderly users. From the big button keypad, extra-loud volume booster, larger font size on the 2.2” colour display, and an emergency call button, the E390A is our top choice of cordless phone for elderly and anyone looking for something that scores top marks for ease-of-use. It's even hearing aid-compatible, so everyone can enjoy this sleek, high-end cordless phone. Further benefits include a standalone user-friendly answering machine, call blocking, and large phonebook.
A professional all-in-one phone system!

Expandable up to 8 handsets and with a range of comprehensive features to take advantage of; the Fusion FX800W Pro is an excellent choice for large homes and small offices. The Mini PBX functionality allows for up to 20 users and up to 6 simultaneous calls (max. 4 DECT calls). All settings and functions can be individually configured via a web-based UI and be set intuitively via the newly developed user interface on the bright touch-and-swipe display. The Gigaset Fusion makes day-to-day work easier and is the ideal solution for small offices, medical practices, law firms, agencies and sophisticated home offices.
The best home phone for protection against nuisance calls!
Bringing a touch of style to the BT range, the BT Premium cordless phone is one of the best-looking models out there. But it offers so much more than just style - there is some substance to this sleek home phone with a number of great features that set this model apart. BT have been at the forefront of Nuisance Call Blocking features for a while now, and the BT Premium boasts their most advanced features yet. Powered by TrueCall, you can block up to 1,000 specific numbers, prefixes, and configure a wealth of settings to put an end to unwanted disturbances. The BT Premium provides a reliable range of up to 50m indoors and 300m outdoors, and also includes a link-to-mobile functionality that lets you quickly copy over your address book from one phone to the other (and even make and receive landline calls from your smartphone). While the sound quality isn't quite up there with the likes of Gigaset or Panasonic, the BT Premium is a top choice if you want the best phone for call blocking!
Simply the best cordless phone that money can buy.
Our Best Cordless Phone! Need a new cordless phone and want to know that your money is being well spent? You could spend hours agonising over various choices, reading countless customer reviews and expert opinions. Or you could just opt for the No.1 on our list – the Siemens Gigaset Premium C575A. It will instantly impress with its slim and sleek design, and blow you away with exceptional sound quality on calls and an excellent full-duplex loudspeaker. It is the latest phone to be released by Gigaset and has been hugely popular since its release, garnering high praise from many of our customers. It boasts a beautifully large 2.2” full colour display, base with built-in answering machine and an array of premium DECT features making it the most desirable home phone of the year! Included is the liGo Repeater - DECT Range Extender for Cordless Phones, which provides up to double the standard range of the C575A for improved signal throughout your home.
Built to last, this model is ideal for heavy use.
A robust DECT phone from Gigaset, the E630A is built to withstand anything that life might throw at it. IP67-certified, it is resistant to shocks, splashes, and dust. That makes it the ideal choice for business environments such as restaurants, warehouses, garages, and workshops. The extra level of protection also makes it a solid pick for homes with young children, since the handset can survive a little more rough-and-tumble usage. A separate base station means that you don’t need to keep the main headset next to a telephone point, and the set can be expanded to up to 6 handsets. Lastly, the Gigaset E630A is also repeater-compatible to provide extra range.
With both corded and cordless handsets, this model has it all!
Enjoy the best of both worlds with this Corded & Cordless phone combo from Panasonic.
