i have this phone about 5 years.....still works fine...great battery.... camera have some issues(tent to loose focus after shoot is taken). auto power on and off option...black list....
:), 11 Dec 2012is the battery removabile? or inside like nokia N8? plz answer mebattery is removable
I've been using this phone for more than 9 month.
It is pretty good for voice calling and texting but nothing more.
Battery is superb. I charge it once in two weeks.
About dual SIM mode: if you are calling via SIM1, SIM is unavailable.
Email processing is extremely basic, there is no push email or Exchange support.
Outlook sync is very basic too, for instance I have about 6-10 meetings every week and the phone just runs out of its memory to sync all the appointments.
The phone can automatically record all you phone calls in transparent way. Super feature!
The phone is all about super battery and voice calling.
Now I'm thinking of changing this phone to something more smart as heavy email processing is desired.
I have some questions about this phone:
Both sims are active? Can I have a waiting call on Sim b while on a call on Sim A?
Does it have push mail?
Does somebody knows phone's battery life with internet data on?
Battery can be switched?

A have Philips x623. Very good phone.-..LIttle bit heavy, but solid and well build.. I like option auto power on and auto power off. Software is very user friendly-..-. Battery is very strong.. Software on CD is very usefull- Philips suite. Sound on speaker is very sharp and clear..For example, Nokia have to much of base in sound but x623 is very clear.
I realy recomend this Phone.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2012Are both SIM cards simultaneously active in this phone? yes..both sim cards are active during voice calls.,.

What the hell are you doing only releasing this in Russia Philips? I'm looking for a good backup phone and this thing is quoted with 50 days battery standby!!!!! Has Wi-fi too and seems to completely pwn the competition.
Release it in the UK and give to GSMArena to review please!
