I am using 9@9++, this phone is stong, it didn't break after hit the ground for two times. Bettery still strong after almost two yrs of use. Voice control when driving, hand-free for Phone conference at any place. 5 numbers in one name.
I am looking for "g". Connectivity is good. I would like PHILIPS can replace the cam by bigger bettery and higher TxRx power for me to hit the road.
No card slot? well it is an undesired fact, but I think it is a harmless compensation for the long battery life. Perhaps, sometime in the near future Philips will produce the next generation of Xenium which has all the features you can wish for but still with superb battery life...who knows...
I have the 9@9++, although its battery now is already dropped, but it still can make about a week for combinations of standby, talk and sms - still outlasts other brands by days. I didn't change to other types of 9@9 because I didn't quite like the flip types and display of the color generations. But with the 9@9f and 9@9g, and all their features, it's sure thing I'm gonna have one. Can't wait till they're on sale.
I've had a Philips Xenium for a long time. Superb phone! Great user interface and a true battery lifetime of up to 1 month (incl telephone calls). Now have another famous brand but certainly want to switch back to Philips. No distrubution in Belgium, so I will have to find a good and reliable web-shop.
Nice and slick...15mm is good size, not too thin. Will be waiting for it to come to my local dealers. At last...a Xenium with bluetooth AND infra red....no card slot? save money, don't need to think of upgrading the card all the time. Like my 960, got the 1GB, still want the 2GB, but hardly use the card, only to store songs...
i have a xenium 9@9 with 9oo mah battery and i make about two week.
My 2 year old Xenium 9@9++ still has about a month standby time if I don't make any calls. But since I do, I need to recharge it every 3 weeks. So don't say Philips is telling lies about the battery life.
Philips Xenium series with Bluetooth and mp3 player? Great! But no card slot? Whatta.....
