Philips ID555 review


It's slim, slick and very family-friendly, but a little disappointing too. Here's why

Smart, sophisticated looks ; Good range of core features ; Speech quality

No text messaging or VOIP ; Mono LCD could be hard to read for some ; Uninspiring UI

Philips ID555 gets a great many things right - from its smart, sophisticated look to a decent range of features. But a surprisingly basic UI underwhelms

Not As Good As the Earlier Model


I purcased this telephone based on the previous model which I loved but is now difficult to get hold of. So I also took out insurance for the new one at the time of purchase. I was quite disappointed with the new model as it did not have a SIM transfer...
