The BT Paragon 650 is a surprisingly powerful telephone, especially at the cheap price we sell it for. This phone will require a power supply to run its substantial functionality so be prepared for that when choosing where to place it. It sits smartly on a desktop and looks very smart almost anywhere – coming in a choice of black or white to suit your internal decor.
