To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Lo tengo hace pocas semanas ... mi opinión tiene que ser relativa. La función que permite contestar los celulares desde el teléfono no es del todo satisfactoria, hay interferencia y las voces se oyen entrecortadas.
I wanted to love this. Link to my cell and land line? Link to bluetooth headphone? Answering machine? Google assistant voice activation? This phone incorporates some fantastic ideas. Alas, I tried the base unit it in 3 different locations in my home and I just couldn't get decent sound quality. Although callers told me they could hear me well, I heard tons of pinging and banging and echoing. It was distracting and, ultimately, a no-go for me (I returned it). The trouble shooting guide in the manual said that you shouldn't locate the base unit near large metal objects. OK. My first location was next to the fridge, so I moved it. Second location was next to a large flat screen TV. But I was running out of options because that's where the land line phone jacks are (and there aren't that many), and the line to connect to them is not that long. Perhaps I could have gone and bought a longer one. But then there were these considerations, most of which other reviewers have also noted: the handsets feel cheap and light, they cannot be held between neck and shoulder, they do not have particularly good ergonomics they seem to be designed more to fit into the box than to be comfortable to use), the speaker phone from the handsets is not that loud, and the phone is not particularly attractive to look at (IMO). I still have (and use) my 7- or 8-year old Panasonic cordless so had something to compare these new ones against - the old are far better. Nicer weight, balance and shape. In addition to voice recognition with Google didnt seem to be that good though I didnt spend a lot of time using it. Amazon and Panasonic: you need to get Alexa-enabled. Oy..... dont know where to go from here. Voice activation is clearly the wave of the future and I dont now who else is making anything better. Ideas anyone?
This is the fourth Panasonic Cordless phone I have owned. My first was 20 years ago and the prior one less than ten years ago. Its not subjective the handset speakerphone volume is too low to be usable in anything but a quiet setting or a good connection with loud audio. It needs to be all the way up to be usable realistically. Disappointed everything seems fine otherwise so far but will update. I have very significant audio knowledge I design and test electronics, not user error or as I said subjective. Panasonic if you can please give me a diagnostic entry to increase the gain to the handset speakerphone speaker. If that's all it has then you can state that. I am aware Panasonic monitors these reviews.
I bought this phone system for the Link2Cell feature. We are planning on dropping the landline phone service but still wanted portable phones throughout the house so that calls could be taken if our cell phone was in another location in the house. The feature worked well for a day or so but I noticed that if my wife left the house with her phone, when she returned her cell phone didn’t pair with the Link2Cell system. I removed the L2C device listing under the Bluetooth settings on her phone and re-paired it to the Panasonic Link2Cell phone system again. Overnight her phone came unpaired again and once again wouldn’t pair with the Panasonic phone base without removing the device from the Bluetooth settings and then re-pairing it again. I’m having the same issue with my phone now as well. My iPhone 6sPlus and my wife’s is an iPhone 6s. Neither of our iPhones have ever had any Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity issues in the past. My wife and I are both retired and while at home we are within 15’ to 20’ of the Panasonic base unit. We can be sitting at the breakfast table 5’ from the base and loose connectivity with the phone system. I don’t know if this is a problem with the Bluetooth radio in the Panasonic base unit on my particular system or this is the weak link of this model phone system, but with my experience from this Panasonic DECT Link2Cell phone system, I would not recommend it if you are looking for a home phone system to use with your cell phones. It is too unreliable to maintain connectivity or to pair back up with your cell phones when you return within range of the home phones base unit.
As for the other features of this phone, the call block feature does work and so far works well. The call announcement feature is a joke. The pronunciation of names is awful and, most part, are hard to understand. Talking on the phone is clear on all but one phone that is staticky. This handset is furthest away and on another floor but the DECT phone it replaced didn’t have any issues. I also wish there were more ringtones to choose from.
Update on Panasonic Link2Cell Bluetooth Phone System. 04-13-2020 Been using this system now for 7 months and can’t change my initial rating. Since my initial review I have replaced my iPhone 6s+ with the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The problem with loosing Bluetooth connectivity improved a little but was still sporadic at best. When answering a cell call on the Panasonic Link2cell phone there was a slight echo noted by the caller but was tolerable. There’s been no change in the Bluetooth connectivity issues with my wife’s iPhone 6s. One of the pros on this phone is if you pair 2 phones like we do the Panasonic Link 2 Cell will use the same ring tone as that cellphone uses. Of course you must have a different ringtone on each cellphone. I also love the caller block function on the Panasonic System. As for the one extension that was furthest away from the base and just couldn’t make it work in that location, I moved it to another room and am relying on another older phone system to fill that void in my home office. I was hoping for a reliable portable phone system that paired with our cellphones and would allow us to do away with our landline. This just isn’t that phone system! (0^0)
I bought this to replace a 10 year old Panasonic answering machine/cordless phone set. It has some good features, like the cell phone connect, but it is markedly inferior to the 10 year old one it is replacing in many respects. Simple stuff, like the system clock. I believe the old unit set the clock automatically, via the phone line. This one has to be manually set, and only from a headset, and it is hard to find the option. The old one had a light on the handset that confirmed charging. This one, no. The aforementioned headset light blinked if you had a message, and you could see it from across the room when you came home. This one, no light, you have to look at a handset screen. One of the things you do most often is DELETE a message, or a hangup, that you don't want. A single button push did that on the old set... this one, you have to pause the message, then do three button pushes to get to delete. Pain in the a**!!! I could go on, but you get the idea. I'd rather have the old one back working.
I absolutely regret purchasing this Panasonic telephone set. I bought it believing it would be as good as my old Panasonic phone set that needed to be replaced. Well unfortunately this unit doesn't compare in the quality of the older unit. The sound ( audio ) quality is terrible and it's oftentimes difficult to hear what's being said from whoever you are speaking with. Even turning up the volume doesn't help. For the price this unit costs it is definitely not a product I can personally recommend. Amazon offers a Panasonic phone system for the hearing impaired which is a much better system.
I bought these phones for my mother (80 years old) who will only use landlines. They were replacements for old Panasonic; the sound quality is fine, but the programming has not been a joy to work with. My biggest issue is with the phone book. There are nine groups, which makes things very handy. I wanted to program the phones in such a way that my mother would be able to easily navigate the phonebook, so the first group is Direct Family, the second group Extended Family (cousins, nieces, nephews, etc.), the third group would be Friends... But one of the rocket scientists at Panasonic decided they would not provide this option. The group names 1-3 cannot be changed - they write this in their booklet: "For groups 1-3, the group names cannot be changed." I don't understand the reasoning for this! Now I have to explain to my mother that "Cell 1" is really extended family and "Cell 2" is friends. She is fully mentally competent, but she is still 80, and this just makes things difficult with one more needless thing to remember on a new system. If someone at Panasonic could explain the justification for this, I would really love to hear it! Eventually the phones will be OK, but if I knew then what I know now, I would have purchased another brand. The user manual is complex; I am going to go out on a limb and say that a lot of customers (if not most) just want a phone they can use without reading through pages and pages and pages of stuff they do not need and are never going to use! I am currently in the process of creating an entirely new user manual for that my mother can actually use and understand (another brainstorm idea someone at Panasonic might want to take note of: add an easy manual to the comprehensive one that already comes with the phones).
Phone works as advertised, but has limited storage. Blocked calls, phonebook, etc. all have restrictive limits. Base unit display quit working and I was never able to get any response from Panasonic on fixing it. Battery life is not that great, so make sure you keep it charged. Good phone, but limited capabilities.
