In addition to decent voice quality and long range DECT phones must also have a simple operating concept. We check whether the AVM Fritz Fon C6 meets these requirements.
After the with the Fritz box compatible DECT telephones AVM Fritz Fon C5 (test report), Gigaset CL660HX (test report) and Panasonic KX TGJ310 (test report) must now show the new C6 of AVM, what it can.
Design and workmanship
The design of the Fritz Fon C6 is much more classic and inconspicuous than that of the angular and narrow predecessor model C5 (review). That's a pity, because we liked the slim shape and the independent appearance. The C6 looks modern and chic, but it does not stand out from the design of the competition. With dimensions of 4.7 × 2.1 × 15.2 cm, the device is thicker and wider than the older C5. Also, the weight is 126 g above that of the predecessor. Due to the rounded back, the C6 is still very good in the hand.
Workmanship and feel are impeccable and high quality. Even with strong pressure on the housing, there is no cracking or deformation. Compared to its predecessor, AVM dispenses with shiny surfaces. That's a good thing, because they are attractions for dust and fingerprints. Also, the fear that the white surface gets dirty quickly, has not been confirmed in the test period. The illuminated keys are easy to reach and also "blind" feel good enough. The keyboard responds reliably and has a well-defined pressure point.
