Mine is almost 3 months old and its still ok. Just a few scratches on the rubber sides.
Ruber on joistick is damaged after just a month of usage. What is next?
To much ruber on this phone. To much!
No. The rubber is not wearproof. It will expand, show marks and scratches eventually due to wear and tear and accidental drops. It also easily gets dirty since the dirt sticks to the rubber. These are tradeoffs to having rubber parts w/c improve phone durability.
Is the rubber wearproof ?!!!
How long will be until they get thin and uggly?!!!
Thanks br41nless! Congratulations on your new phone...u made the right choice =)
hi max, here's the translated page that u give.
i think those tester is some crazy guys. btw, i have my own me75 now. i love her so much same as my lost me45.
this is really the best phone i ever saw!
the abuse was really hard but the phone was amazing! really amazing!!
Yes its quite hard to remove the simcard. But I think Siemens did this on purpose because its supposed to be shock resistant. If the simcard can easily be removed, it might be dislodged when dropped. The ME75 is a wise buy.
Wow! The phone was totally abused! Too bad I dont understand Russian....They even washed it w/out the battery and cover which is quite dumb. Of course water would seep through without the cover! Bottomline is this phone is a great buy. For its price, the ME75 has a lot to offer and its rocks!
Go to the crash test page of this phone http://www.allsiemens.ru/reviews/view.php?id=72 You'll see some incredible crash test pictures.
To those encountering problems with the software....I suggest you try their firmware download service-over-the-air. Its a free software upgrade without having to connect it to a pc. Check out the benq-siemens website for instructions. I just tried it and i got the latest sw version already. Siemens rules!!!
Phone blocked while I try to capture some video and I disconect the battery to take back to normal.
One more great problem- It is almoust imposible to easy change the SIM card from this phone when you first time put in phone. They dont count that somebody want to change SIM card from this phone- unbelivable.
I have it for 2 weeks now. Battery last 4-5 days if you dont use it much and if display contrast set to low value and if screensaver is energysaving. I dont prefer joisticks. I would rather to see navipad on this kind of phone. Last row of keys is placed to low it would be beter if they put it on higher position.
I think that digital clock as screensaver consuming more electric power than analog clock, but analog clock is almost useless.
I have bought ME75 one week ago. Generally, the software is easy to use. However I dount about the battery life that the manufacturer has said. My battery lasts only 2 days !!!
I little bit dissapointed with mine ME75 since many time having troble in using video recording and also the clock alway late
People do you know how to increase the video shooting on my ME75???And how to turn off the sound when i shoot???
well; after about 3 years and a few months with the ME45, i think it's about time to go to ME75,but not so fast, it still hasn't arrived the markets here in Jordan, plus; i am the kind of person who buys the mobile in it's last days in the market, so i pay less-come on, in one year time it will be at least 50% cheaper than when it first comes out....
anyway, thanks for all the guys who give advices, they are quite useful...
thx for ur reply,i will see where this phone is made..
i hade a nokia made in finland and it was working perfectly! never had problems with it!
Of course it makes difference especially in the software..but also in the way phone is assembled..i would reccomend to get a siemens ME75 which says:Made in (any place inside EU, better Germany or nordic countries) I had Nokia made in China and it was a terrible phone..
