Best Big Button Cordless Phone
Reviews and Comparisons
The big button cordless is back. Manufacturers including Panasonic, Vtech, Uniden and Clarity phones got the message loud and clear. Using cordless phones with buttons the size of a pin head is frustrating and time consuming.
In our experience the best cordless phones don't simply have big buttons, they also have a generous amount of space between the buttons. It makes for faster and more accurate dialing.
Top 3 Big Button Cordless Phones
There are several phones in the Uniden cordless phone range with large well spaced buttons. They are attractive DECT 6.0 phones with all the usual options, as well as having 20 dB of adjustable amplification.
We also like the handsets on these Uniden telephones. They are a bit larger and heavier than many of the alternatives. It makes them easier and more comfortable to grasp.
Models in the range include options both with and without digital answering machines. There is also a corded cordless phone which is ideal for users in areas where power outages are common.
The latest Panasonic DECT 6.0 phones are almost certainly the best cordless home phones. In addition to offering numerous innovative features, Panasonic has done well to address the issues that consumers have registered with older models.
While the latest Panasonic cordless telephones have well spaced ample buttons, they are generally not suitable as telephones for the hard of hearing. While call clarity is excellent, more control over volume would be appreciated by many.
The ultimate big button cordless phone is a Clarity phone. In fact there are quite a few excellent options in the Clarity range. The company specializes in phones for users with hearing and sight impairments, as well as those with arthritic hands and finger joints.
One doesn't have to be elderly or arthritic to appreciate a big button cordless phone. Fortunately a number of manufacturers now recognize that small handsets with tiny buttons are impractical.
