Top cordless phones 2012 - best landline phone handsets and how to choose the best home phone for your needs

Updated on October 19, 2012

Which cordless phone set should I buy for my home? Selecting the right home phone system.

It's just as important as finding the best cell phone/mobile phone handset, yet many people don't put as much thought into or spend nearly as much time choosing which cordless landline home phone system they should purchase.

The key is to find a landline phone setup that suits your needs and does what you want it to do with the least fuss. Make sure when you are buying a new cordless home phone that the kit has enough handsets/bases for the size of your home and the number of people who will be using it.

If you value having a built-in answering machine or a wider choice of ringtones, then ensure you take all of the features of the brands that you are considering into account. Also consider whether you will use Caller ID and whether your selected cordless phone choice includes that function. It's also a good idea to consider button size and ease-of-use, particularly in regard to features such as a backlit display screen and text size, especially if you have vision difficulties. You may also want to check if your phone system has a voice enhancer or a similar feature to improve voice clarity in the case of someone in the household being hard of hearing.

So what are the best home phone systems right now?
