The Best Cordless Phone
Updated Dec 10, 2022
Cordless phones are ugly, clunky, often-frustrating anachronisms that might seem like antique additions to modern homes. And most cordless phones are made by the same two manufacturers, with vanishingly few differences among the many mediocre models. Still, cordless phones remain popular, and they can be extremely helpful in an emergency or in homes with poor cell reception. After testing 12 top candidates, we’re sure AT&T’s DL72210 is the best old-fashioned handset. This two-phone package has respectable range and sounds better than any other handset we tested. It also offers premium features such as smart call blocking and a Bluetooth cell phone connection at a non-premium price.If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, we also have an amplified cordless phone pick for you.
