cordless phones – VTech DS6751, 2017

VTech’s DS6751 cordless phone doesn’t have top-of-the line features like some of our higher-ranked landline phones. However, this home phone still offers Bluetooth connectivity and pairs easily with your cell phone. It is simple to use and to set up, and it is more affordable than most landline phones.

Summary

This cordless home phone set comes with a standard of two handsets, but it can support up to five. The battery life for the handsets is 7 hours of talk time or five days on standby. This is below average when comparing the unit to other telephones. It’s also slower at charging and will take 11 hours to rejuvenate. The best phones take just 7 hours to charge.

One of the biggest advantages of the DS6751 is its base. It features a large keypad, speakerphone and a Caller ID display. Some bases don’t feature a speakerphone, but this cordless phone set includes a base speakerphone and the ability to use each individual handset as a speakerphone as well. The speakerphone isn’t extremely loud and it picks up your voice much better if you speak directly into it, but it is functional.

The handsets offer all the standard features that you should expect when buying a cordless phone. They have intercom functionality, conferencing and a silent setting, but they don’t have more advanced features. For example, they can???t receive text message alerts from your cell phone, and they can???t be paired with a wireless headset. Also, since there isn’t a headset jack, you can’t use a wired headset either.

The phone has plenty of storage. It will hold 200 contacts and will remember the last 50 callers. It also stores the last 10 outgoing numbers you dial. As for the answering machine, it is capable of recording 14 minutes of messages.

VTech includes a one-year warranty with its cordless phone set. The company offers telephone and email support as well. You can read the FAQs page or download the instruction manual on VTech’s website.

Overall, the VTech DS6751 does not have all the advanced communication features like some of the best landline phones, but it still pairs with your smartphone, has a nice base and offers all the basic features, like conferencing and a providing you a phonebook with plenty of storage.
