While younger people tend to take to technology better, a few older people may struggle. That is not to say that the Panasonic KX-TG8013 Cordless Phone is difficult to programme. In fact, most people should get to grips with it easy. However, when you pack a lot of technology in such small device, that’s where the problem lies. But, once you program these phones, you will have a quality telephone.
The buttons feel good, and the whole unit feels solid which is what you expect from Panasonic. The ringtones are few and far between but who needs bells and whistles really? Of course, you only need alerting to an incoming call.
In effect, we were able to operate the phones at the bottom of the garden. Furthermore, this was about 20 metres away from the base unit. We also found that these were compatible with the Panasonic models KX-TG8011 and KX-TG8012.
To Sum Up
The Panasonic KX-TG8013 Cordless Phone is all about functionality and quality. Obviously, some people still use telephones like these while others rely on smart phones. However, if you manage to get a good deal on these phones, we are sure you will be happy with them.
