As of 2015, the best available cordless phone for most users is the Panasonic KX TG7645M, according to We Went Wireless. Comparable models include the AT&T EL52300 and the VTech CS6419-2.
The Panasonic KX TG7645M is recommended on the strength of its speaker system and its ability to access a phone company's voicemail system through its own voicemail interface. The AT&T EL52300 offers additional options not available on the Panasonic phone, including a push-to-talk feature that makes it suitable for communicating throughout a large house. The VTech CS6419 is an inexpensive phone that offers fewer of the features of the other two recommended models but is a good choice for phone shoppers on a budget.
