S45 is good (as I have tried it in an Expo) but ME45 has all functions of S45 as well as more sturdy (shock resistant and dust-proof)AND BULKY. Are these 2 phones just designed for 2 different kind of people or ME45 is an improvement of S45? Hard to say...They have different ancestors but is now merging.
Great looking phone with many good features. Tri-band capability would definitely make this phone perfect. It's due for release around August, so hopefully some enhancements will have been made by then.
Could the guy who complained about the low sound of the speaker explain where he got access to the handset, as it hasn't been released yet?
The Siemens S45 is an incredibly complete phone. Besides it has a beautiful design. It also is very light and very small. In short: the ultimate!!!
Room for improvement: Tri-band, more entries for agenda.
Pros: Dictionary, Syn with Outlook
Cons: Speaker not loud enough
Thomas: Do you actually have the S45? Where in the world is it available right now? Also, this is NOT the follow-up to SL45 - doublecheck the name. Siemens has the SL line of phones (I believe only one phone in that line right now, the SL45), and the S line of phones (S25, S35, and now S45). It makes sense that it does not come with the MP3 player, since it's not a follow-up to SL45 (I checked this from Siemens technical support myself, so it's a fact :).
Lim Meng Shi: How come can't the S45 be cheaper than the SL45? The S45 does NOT come with an MP3 player, nor does it have a MMC slot (which the SL45 uses for MP3 file storage, among other things). These two items alone drop the production costs a LOT. Therefore, from a production cost point of view, the S45 MIGHT be cheaper than the SL45. And once again, the S45 is not a follow-up to SL45. It's a follow-up to S35, which wasn't an expensive phone to begin with. Most likely the S45 will be priced between S35 and SL45.
wksoo: S45 does not have an MP3 player.
How come the SL45 have an mp3 player and the follow-up hasn´t. Weird... Otherwhise great design and about time to loose the antenna. I don´t like the buttons. They get pretty bad after a while. Don´t know if you can change or what but incredible with all the functions on this litle beauty :-)
I think that the S45 is a great phone and am condiering buying one in the near future. I already own a C35i and am impressed with it. But how much does the S45 cost?
Hmmm. No built-in Bluetooth and given the price of the SL-45, this will not be cheap. Wait for the next model upgrade with Bluetooth or for the first time, I think the Ericsson T68 actually is a better phone if they price it right.
hello, any guy who using the siemens sl 45 phone, please let me know how is the phone work.is the mp3 player ok??
