Which is the Best softphone for asterisk currently


#1

Hello Everyone,

I search for above question in this community and found many good answers, most of them are suggesting to use x-lite. But these comments are 10 years old.

I am just wondering that for now which softphone is best?

Thanks

Do you need business features. X-Lite is a loss leader and doesn’t have some of the features businesses expect, and for which you may need to pay.

Hello David,
Thanks for your reply. I just want to perform some test with FreePBX for that I need a softphone. I want to make, transfer, conference call, receive a call. I think for now I need a basic open source softphone which can fulfill my requirements.

Can you suggest me other opensource softphones?

X-Lite is not open source.

@ravindranath.kashyap,

I would consider the following products:
CounterPath X-Lite - free, stable, supports basic functionality only (no call transfer, no call forward, no 3-way conference).

CounterPath Bria - shareware ($50), supports all the key business features (call transfer, call forward, 3-way conference, address book, H.264 video).

PhonerLite - free and feature-rich client, but its UI is not intuitive and user friendly as compared to Counterpath products.

Note that all of the above products are proprietary, not open source.

@ravindranath.kashyap,

Based on your needs, I would go with PhonerLite.
Although it is not an opensource product, it should suit you.
