Im'a using Siemens Phones since 2000. I had C35, C55, S55 and almost 2 years ago I have got S75. It was one of the first phones of this model... It's buggy... Not just buggy, but it's full of bugs! For instance: you call somebody, press red button and immediately press green button again (to call this person again), now you see a list of last calls without the latest and 1-2 seconds later you enjoy message "Database Error". Besides that it's too heavy (compared to C55 and S55), buttons are simply ugly - they are too small and too hard to press. So, I'm disappointed. After 5 years of really good experience with Siemens it was hard to accept that they have created such phone.
Never again Siemens. Never again BENQ.
Good phone but if want more quality camera and better design buy the S88 instead, excelent price.
Don´t forguet this phone (S75) was realeased two years ago. for the price is asked in some web sites it´s still a good choice.
It's the star of Siemens, most comfortable, complete feature enclosed your all activities. For Siemens lover, it's must have collection.
Hey there I'd just like to say that Siemens S75 rocks. I've been using it for the past 7months and it is one great phone with its own uniqueness............
I just got my S75 a few days and try to reach it out...
Firmware version : 31
Great phone, Good management system
- Large call record informations
- Huge Contact storage ( I love it )
- Great Speaker sound
- Great functions
- Easy to use menu and usefully command
- Too close buttons , buttons size too tiny.
Your hand may get ache.When you must use for a long period. ( I never feel like this with my old S25,C35,SL45i,ME45,M55 )
- Unsatisfied camera and ( I used to test Sony Ericsson K750i for while , K750 are great quality photos )
- Too light Bass when listening Mp3 with headset ( my Old SL45i and ME45+MP3 player headset are better quality sound )
- No number short key like my old x45 series that I can press a few button to access any command I want
Siemens S75 are best for Works by their System design and you can relax with their multimedias support
You got more usefully functions that Others
mr anoarul try to use aktel gprs not grameen edge. this will solv ur problem
this is a eXtreemly slow Prosessing mobile set.if i try to work fast it crashs.some times display light goes off and comes back aftre 10 sec though im still pressing switch.its true that siemens try make this phone as their masterpice but its not.
I think the firmware is a beta version :-) The (Benq) Siemens closed its bussines and no one fixed the bugs. One of the most annoying features is "hear protection function", which mutes silent playback and makes it even more low level. If you are looking for a new phone, look for another one. Hardware is good, but the firmware is a crap.
i've been using this mobile since last year. even i had so many problems before, like sms bugging, internet problems, etc. but since i have upgraded my firmware to 47, believe me my phone has become faster and all the applications are working better than before. even the video recording time has also increased from 1:30 min to 16:30 min. Ever since the upgration of the firmware.....i am really satisfied with this phone and i think that i spend my money at the right place :D:D
Wow.. i read several of the comments below and almost all correct... sadly. I am a longtime Siemens user/fan too. S75... its just very sad. Sad for me to read all this too. I loved all M55 and A56, for different reasons.
I ordered my n95 this week. My phone is crashing several times a week now. RIP Siemens.
I was a Siemens fan, all my mobiles till now where Siemens. But the S75... piece of crap. Looks good on photos, but my black edition looks like very cheap plastic. The phone is very slow in comparison to phones of equal release time/price, my one sometimes does not show, when someone is calling me (very rare, but nevertheless very annoying) and when when doing several things in simultaneosly (playing music, loading something else, or booting and opening another app) it quite often crashes. The pictures taken with the came are of poor quality in my eyes. Very noisy, horrible colors, often shifted... . The display is... well... it's ok, but not as good as it should be. When sending, it flickers a little bit, and resolution could be better too. All in all, I'm very diappointet with this one. It looks like Siemens tried to save a lot of money when producing. :(
The bottomline is that this phone is full of features, unfortunately most of them do not work. I also have problems in connecting to internet, error PPP 734, and that's it. Plus many more problems with FW. Shame, it has big potential, but just doesn't work. Do not buy this phone, it is too expensive to use it simply as a talking machine.
Unfortunatly Siemens bankrupcy in Germany left us without real support for Siemens and Benq-Siemens branded mobiles. OTA configuration is no more available, and a few drivers for the S75 can be downloaded in the "www.benq.sg" (Singapore) and nowhere else.
Benq will loose customers fidelilty if nothing is done.

Any link where i can download software updates??(benqsiemens doesn't offer any more the updates,and I don't understand some russian pages)
I love this phone,so please help me...
Frankly before switching to Samsung, i was once a Siemens fans. I like Siemens because its upgradable firmware. But pitty Siemens' Holding Company seems abandon its mobile division. And after holding and playing with this S75 of a friend of mine who a hardcore-siemens fans, i come to conclusion that this fone is "maybe" Siemens last masterpiece. What surprise me is the mp3 player is awesome which i think better than SE K750. I hope Siemens will release their fone line up in the future with its "SIEMES" name without adding Benq or Fujitsu or any other brand.
