General information

The Snom Global Desk Telephone D785 is a classic office phone with a 4.3-inch display. It makes a good first impression. Phone, handset, and accessories are of high quality. The connectors of the device are on the back and a USB 2.0 port on the side.

The connectors on the backside point down.
The connectors on the rear panel face down.

The second display offers the possibility to use certain functions with one button press.
The second display offers the possibility of using certain functions with the press of a button.

The phone is operated via the navigation keys, which work very well and pleasantly with the software. Additionally, the phone has another small display. This is equipped with shortcut keys. Thus, for example, it can be switched to silent or a contact can be called at the touch of a button. In addition, a conference can be started or a call can be forwarded using the keys.

Structure and setup

The assembly of the Snom Global Desk Telephone D785 is easy and well explained in the supplied manual. The handset is also easy to assemble and connect.

The included manual explains in very few steps, how to connect the phone. Whether the setup works as described in the manual depends on whether you have a telephone system or which VOIP provider is used. As with other IP phones, SNOM devices also have an interface for the Internet browser, where the VOIP data can be entered. However, this interface is rather unclear and not intuitive to use.

Most VOIP providers offer detailed instructions for the various phones online, it can be very helpful to consult them for help.
