ME45 was way better than anything Nokia had available at that time. And my beloved tank M65, too bad battery is dead nowadays.
Oh I remember Siemens. It was my first dolor phone Siemens C65 and later Siemens CX65. Both was much cheaper and offer much better screens and functionality when it's similar priced Nokia phones :) still remember CX65 and it massive screen for its time :) Siemens SX1 was really some badass smartphone though it's popularity was dreaded by its unusual keyboard but it was very capable device at it's time :) too bad those phones lacked Nokia quality and ussualy didint last a year do to low quality printboards. That is the main reason I think it division died, lack of quality
These were well-made cell phones. I have an old ME45 that still works.
Yeah, SL45 was my 1st phone, friends loved the DJ tunes & I remember recording a phone conversation when somebody owed me some money (I got back most of it).
Siemens does some of the world's best engineering. It's a shame they dropped out of the mobile industry, and the same goes for Ericsson.
vlad_mne, 29 Jul 2018anyone who know where to find batery for siemens sx1???Could not find it on ebay, but simple google searches (surprisingly) gives several sellers

My first Siemens phone was the C35. Then I bought M35i which I loved so much for it's shape and great handling; also rubberized buttons and port cover so it became sort of water resistant. Give me peace of mind when riding my bike in heavy rain with the phone in my pocket.
Then I found S35i which I kept but didn't used much. Afterwards came the M55 which for me looks stunning, epecially the orange. I couldn't afford a new one, so I bought used. Couple of days later I left the phone on my postbox and it's gone forever. Gave my wife C62 as a birthday gift, which we still kept until now. Honestly, that phone and M55 keypads are rubbish with pointy buttons and hurt my thumbs when used extensively. Later my brother bought the BenQ-Siemens S88 phone which I think looks handsome and proper.
Anyway I always applauded Siemens for their fresh and unique styling/ideas.
i love siemens mobiles, i still have s25, c35, s35, s55, sl55, m65, & s65
I had Siemens CX 65 and after that i had CX 70.
I still remember the green fat creature that appeared in my screen
carrying the income messages.A lot of fun and a funny sound also with
every income message.
I really miss Siemens...
Now i use only Nokia phones.
Anyway we all went back in time for a while thanks to Gsm arena
and of course Siemens!
I also liked the phones from Siemens but also Ericsson. They were solid, simple, practical and durable.
Brings me back to my first phone, Siemens A35. Loved that phone when I was 8 years old.
I bet that the quality signal of the antennas on a couple of these old Siemens, Motorola, Nokia and Sony-Ericsson are stil better than many nowadays cell phones...
I still have somewhere me45 winter edition with wicked red lights instead of amber ones. Plus it's white, silver and light blue instead of black and Grey. Great phone!
There was lot of excitement in the air back then. I had C45 then C65 Â– lot of fun, being able to open word docs; listen to music and audiobooks, it was great; then I remember how much I desired a Siemens SXG75, but never got it.. My next phone after C65 was Nokia N80, Siemes was long gone.. then Nokia followed..
Hoping for the Surface phone, it should be the time for an all in one device.
