That it moves at the Panasonic KX-TG8621, for 100 euros including answering machine in the premium class, can be made not only to the lush store. In addition, the newcomer offers features not found in other models of the manufacturer.

Family Helper

So he dominated a lot what underpins the permission of a DECT telephone as a communication hub in the household. For example, he replaced the alarm: even cell phones with very sophisticated options, provide the but in the event of an emergency in the early morning the battery is not rare empty or the mobile phone inside the bag out of hearing range.

Despite the fact that the Panasonic-DECT is usually not to hear can be set individually alarm times: thanks to five locations where each any day of the week can be associate also irregular schedules of children are not a problem. Dates can be entered in the integrated calendar, but do not send via Bluetooth from Outlook.

Contact via phone

The short-range radio is used, when it comes to integration of the headset. However, in return, one has waived a Jack input for wired earphones.

Also via Bluetooth the telephone contacts with a mobile phone in order to call number filling. These contacts are either sent separately from your mobile phone, or it will be automatically sent the complete address book. It can manage any three numbers, there are more, an additional identically-named contact will be created.

This quirk can be a stumbling block when the synchronization: numbers in the international format must be according to the pattern “0049” – the Panasonic can do with + 49 and cut such an intention. Thus, the entire number is useless.

Everything under control

Easy comfort functions can be used, which govern the telephone traffic. So, you can block up to six primaries about expensive 01805-numbers. Lock out certain callers who get to hear a Belegtzeichen can be.

Completely during a defined period of time, the night mode ensures peace. Leave with people who are associated with specific categories, take – about the young talent, who wants to take the night-time transportation service of a parent.

You can also the VIPs Flash off and let the answering machine. He is integrated into the base station independent of the charging and is operated solely via the handset. The DOWN has even a hint mode without recording, but only an announcement there is record, which must each be adapted if necessary. Messages can be selected when filing the number in the address book via the caller name. To listen it’s only from the menu or a three-digit dialing is available for most functions.

Speaking of menu: this is badly stained, but uncluttered thanks to 1.8 inch color TFT SCREEN. The font is large and easily legible, navigation is via four-way d pad. Unusually the horizontally connected keyboard may be for some, because the single digits with a proper pressure point are highlighted, is the operation but no problem. Only blind tipsters have a hard, because the keys are not noticeably separated.

Perseverance and sound good

In standby mode the Panasonic holds through good ten days, the talk time is over twelve hours also lush with. The current consumption in mixed operation of 0.7 Watts is pleasingly low.

The transmitting power of the base can be 90 percent settle also permanently at the push of the “eco” button according to the manufacturer – what however comes at the cost of the coverage. The Panasonic does not offer a real fully eco mode, which drops the power of base when not in use on almost zero, but.

A friend of quieter tones is also not the phone: it section sometimes words from more muted counterparts – possibly through a bit too aggressive noise reduction. Sonically, there was, however, little to criticise, both with the handset to the ear, as well as in hands-free mode the DECT sounded balanced, also you can regulate height and depth using the menu.
