I'm looking what's available in decent VoIP phones. My #1 choice was Snom but these are no longer distributed in NZ and the costs of getting them as-needed from Hong Kong are way too high.

 

What else is out there?

The Grandstream gear really isn't that bad at all - can be bought quite cheaply too: https://www.gowifi.co.nz/voiptelephony/phones.html 

 

Have you tried Grandstream before?

I forgot about Grandstream from Go Wifi. Thanks for reminding me. I will call them tomorrow.

Snom is distributed by Atlas Gentech... whether you want to deal with them though that is another story. The product manager in charge of Snom is very good though to be fair.

What brands are you looking for?

Yealink, Panasonic - Snappernet

Fanvil - Everlea

I guess Ingram would do any of the Cisco phones.

I forget the name of the Grandstream distributor... it's similar to Dicker Data but just can't remember.

FWIW, Fanvil is an insanely good option. You will fall over at the pricing of their phones. Plus they are fully supported by the likes of 3CX. Quality is on par with Yealink IMO.

Dicker Data do Cisco, and Go Wireless do Grandstream.

 

The OP's questions can't really be answered without really without knowing requirements. 

 

I deploy thousands of phones per year and sum it up by saying there quite simply is no such thing as the best IP phone and autoprovisiong capabilities differ between platforms (and you should never contemplate anything but full autoprovisioning of phones) with pros and cons of every brand out there. Customer requirements also play a big part so really comes down to what the customer needs and the platform you're using.
