BT Stratus 1500 review


It's big, it's black, but it's not very clever

100-name-and-number address book, answer phone ; handsets should be hard to lose

Big, ugly and tacky ; poor and gloomy UI ; not as fully featured as some rivals ; very average call quality

The BT Stratus 1500 has a lot going for it... until you open the box

Excellent value

Does the job


The phones work fine as phones, it's good that you only have to put the numbers in once to have them appear on all the phones. Pity the groups you put the numbers in don't transfer to the other phones, or I haven't been able to make them, and I don't...

Great replacement


Our old BT phone gave up the ghost so looking at all the options this seemed the best. Easy to set up (assuming some basic level of intelligence). A variety of ring tones available most not great but that depends on individual taste but there will be...

Waste of money
