Hello to everyone
I own this phone for not so long, but..
I must say, guys: you won't regret buying this one. I wouldn't say it blows or rocks, this is not of my habits. But I'll analyse this a lil'.
I was hesitating: Nokia 8310, 6510, Siemens S45 or Sony Ericsoon T100. But finally took this one, however, it is the right choice.
Why didn't I take S45i? I don't need a business phone with luxurious features. There are many I don't need. But people say also that this one is good.
Nokia models (see above) are too small, too cheesy, or the other ones (3510) are stupidly big like bricks. Sony Ericsson...don't really know. Didn't convince me.
I don't need a colour display, that of S55 is great. Its performances are decent, sound, dynamic and mic qualities are competative or more than that. Ringtones -
there are many for any kind of choice you can also record your voice, and it's better than that of Sony J5 (the one I owned previously) in therms of quality. The
menu, I think, had been improved since. It's much more simple than its predecessors'. The WAP features and conectivity - nothing to say. This phone was made to
The practical assets also are: changable covers (to remove dust and dirt you don't really have to make an effort), fast keys, voice dialing (probably not necessary to
use, though). Size is great. Matters :)) Better than Nokia anyway.
In the end of the day, what do I need from portable?
To be able to hear when it rings, to be able to hear people who call, to be able to feel when vibra is ringing in my pocket, to be able to modify ringtones (here you
can download them, as well as logos, from internet via GRPS), to be able to push the right button not being puzzled of where and when.
What I lack: the phone book could be bigger (only 50 nos. you can store). For the time being, it's all.
Just go for Siemens.
Hi just thought would add my opinion for what its worth.
Well what a fab phone we have.
C55 blows Nokia 3510 out of the water.
I had 3510 and here goes.
Clip-it covers more stylish (3510 is usual coffin shape Nokia Design) and more of them.
Sound from 3510 not bad but not as good as C55 also 3510 used a little hole in bottom of phone which can be covered by hand.
C55 has a brill speaker phone facility which 3510 doesnt.
Orange display (would have been nicer to have choice of colour) better than 3510 green.
C55 much more compact (luckily not much smaller,I have small hands and have no probs).
I cant find anything so far to fault the phone on I just love it and would reccomend it.
Available from Phones4U in Walsall and rest of UK now under justphone ie sim free for £139.99 (brochure shows £160 so may be a launch promo not sure by shop) same price as 3510 is selling for, may the battle commence.
Dear UNKNOWN, I wonder if have you ever used a Siemens. I had 3 models so far: C25, C35i, ME45 and I NEVER had problems with firmware bugs. If a company makes reliable phones, its name is Siemens. They test their phones before they release them in market, unlike Nokia.
Hey Siemens has great software!! I have used Siemens for years (and changed models) and never had a problem with it. That's why i'm waiting for this phone to come in my country and buy it ! This phone is great! and expencive? The shit-o-phone NOKIA 3510 is the same price? C'mon that phone isn't worth 5 $! even NOKIA confesed that the phone is full of bugs HW & SW! There's only 1 thing i don't like... It's display color! It should've been blue!
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too expensive! Let alone the SW bugs...:p Well, that;s about it with the German reliability... Great Hardware, shitty Software...maybe they should call some guys from Japan to write the soft...
Anyone know what polyphonic ringtone formats the C55 will support? SP-MIDI, Yamaha SMAF, Digiplug? Is it possible to download your own MIDI files?
dragon: no, it doesn't have a MP3 player it's already in stores, 250 in germany and 220 in france
i've seen beauty in my live but men this is a discovery. what siemens C55, it's too much. u know what i don't need any other just let me have it.
I'm very interested by c55, I already wait it's coming, I want to bay, but I haven't enough money
Great phone,can't wait 2 get 1,it looks way cooler than my nokia 5210(sorry nokia)and it's got GPRS and Java,(unlike nokia3410-java and 3510-gprs-very stupid indeed)and on top of that it's got new cool polyphonic ringtones,just imagine all that in affordable phone...Thumbs up for Siemens..
