  3. Rating

Panasonic also cheap can prove what the Japanese with the k-x TG6521 for just 40 euros. The question is, if the customer gets a decent phone.

And to anticipate it: Yes. This begins with the exterior, which has Panasonic-like little bulge, but this perfectly in the hand and to the ear clings. Also, Panasonic has donated a pleasantly large, well dissolved, and amber backlit monochrome display, representing large and clear all information.

The keys are somewhat spongy and wobbly advised, but contrasting and are far apart, which increases the accuracy. The menu navigation is via a 4-way button and three soft keys below the display – everything is intuitively comprehensible and easy to use.

The only point of criticism: the buttons can be located via a long pressure on the menu soft key lock and unlock, here would be the better solution with symbol marked button.

Basic comfort

Under the hood is the phonebook for 100 entries – what is standard in this class. Laudable even the call barring for incoming calls and the fact that the basis for incoming calls with rings.

Small drawback: the Japanese have been saving a LED that signals missed. As well as the full eco mode, which prevents the duration pulses of base station in standby mode. Panasonic has built at least controllable via menu and button manual reduction of power.

Perseverance and sound tune

The DECT in the laboratory emphasizes the solid impression: with a standby time of well six days and a continuous talk time of more than 16 hours, the KX TG6521 under normal conditions holds through quite a few days up the handset again to power refuelling on the base. Only the Gigaset A400 in a different League plays in this discipline.

The voice quality measurements yielded a good result – both with the hands-free handset to the ear.
