The right business phone can make a world of difference to your company communications- read on to discover our top picks.


When it comes to choosing new business phones, it's crucial that you make an informed decision. As a vital line of communications between your company and your customers, your new phone needs to be perfectly fit for purpose. To help you make the right choice, we've put together the following list, containing our top business phone picks.

By far the most important thing to consider when purchasing a business phone is the sound quality. First impressions can make all the difference, so you'll want to be sure that you are coming through loud and clear on those important calls. Brands like Gigaset and Panasonic are known for their excellent sound quality, and are therefore well represented below.

You'll also want to think about how you plan on using your new phones. Many businesses are now making the switch to VoIP, since this can often work out much cheaper if you are making a large volume of calls. Others are still using analogue phone lines, but may want to choose a model that can also work with VoIP in case this is something to consider further down the line. There's also the issue of corded versus cordless models- some, like the Gigaset DX800A and Panasonic KX-TGF320E, give you the best of both worlds. If you'd like some more information about any of the the models on our list, advice on compatibility, or a personalised recommendation, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us directly!

What we look for in business phones:


  • Sound Quality
    We carefully analyse sound quality to ensure they are up to standard.
  • Range
    With cordless models, you'll want to be able to walk around the office without your call cutting out- which is why our experts test the range of each model.
  • Usability
    A good phone should be simple and intuitive to use, so we also test usability to ensure each handset is up to standard.
  • Build & Reliability
    We conduct an extensive survey throughout the year to find out which models are the most reliable.
