I first purchased my current Vtech CS6114 about a year ago, and it was the third one that I have bought. I really like this cordless phone. It is simple and easy to use, and yet it has a variety of useful details for the low price you pay for it. It's both affordable and durable and the features are not too complicated to master pretty quickly.
My VTech CS6114 in white in color and it comes with only one handset. This handset has withstood many falls, drops and bumps over the past years and it is still in very good condition. Markings and scratches are minimal and all of the features still operate as if the phone was still brand new.
This phone has digital display and a green-colored background light. I like the way the keys and the screen light up as soon as you touch any of the buttons on the phone. This particular feature makes using the phone in dark or low lit environments much more convenient. As far as the features on this phone, I was really surprised the first time I got one at the various features this phone has, especially when it has such an inexpensive price.
The amount of battery life that this phone has is decent. If you fully charge it overnight, the battery can literally last for days on mainly standby, and if you're an avid talker, it gives you plenty of hours of talk time. All cordless phone batteries eventually run down and out, but even after a year, I have not had to change out the battery on this one yet. I still get a full day and half's worth of battery life after every full overnight charge.
Other features I like about this phone include the built-in caller ID and the programmable directory. It is not hard to learn how to program the names and numbers into the directory, and you can even instantly save numbers from the caller ID directly into the phone's directory. Additional features that this cordless phone has are the three different languages you can select, the 3 different ringer options and the fact that you can redial up to the last 5 numbers that you have recently called.
Overall, for the very affordable low price you pay for this Vtech CS6114 cordless phone, the quality, durability and features all make it one heck of a deal. I would recommend this phone to anyone who is searching for a very low-priced and basic cordless phone.
