iDect iHome Android phone
The household handset meets the 21st century
As for call quality, I found nothing to complain about once I stopped holding the handset with the screen to my face like my mobile. Doh! Both incoming and outgoing calls where as clear as a bell and the ringer had plenty of volume on tap for the slightly Mutt and Jeff.
Versatile, but you only get the one handset
iDect reckons a full charge of the 910mAh battery is good for eight hours of talk time or 80 on standby, which seemed about right to me. However, leave the Wi-Fi radio on and you will halve those times.
The absence of Google account sign-in, an aging version of Android and a less-than-pukka resistive screen and UI combine to take some of the shine off the iHome and at £99 with only one handset it’s not the cheapest cordless phone package around. On the other hand it’s very easy to use, looks good and does plenty of things your typical home phone is not capable of. ®
