hi , i just want to ask if the S65 have mp3 player or not , cause i want to buy it but this point makes a big difference with me , please anybody tell me !!!
Hi2all, two days ago, I have changed my "Loyality Points" from my Provider (ONE Austria) into a brandnew Siemens S 65. I like the stylish design and the "more than enough" functionality of this phone. The display is bright and clear, eventhough without backlight. At my old phone, a NOKIA 7250i, the display was too small and not bright enough. GPRS via IRDA works fine with my Notebook. Software for the PC, internal Data Structures and the Menus are "State of the Art". Support on the German website is OK. Standby time seems to me, if you don't play too much with the camera and other functions, like the NOKIAs. What I don't like: The camera produces greyish and not really vivid pictures. Maybe this problem can be solved by a Firmware upgrade. Ciao from Vienna/Austria
i'm using the s65 for about two months now and all i can say is that this phone has great features, if they could be used, the screen is very very pixelated and badly lighted, games and screensavers are slooooow, even slower than my previuos SE T630, phone software crashes every now and then driving you mad by time, sometimes the phone just closes, not restarts, closes and you have to start it all over again, bluetooth sometimes works great and sometimes displays a message "internal bluetooth error", although restarting the phone repairs this, the camera sucks, it just takes awfull pictures like i've never seen in my life, only megapixel in resolution but the quality is terrible, i've seen VGA cameras in nokia (6600, 7600) better than this one, also the video capture is limited to thirty seconds, whatever you do you can't change these thirty seconds or expand them more, the speaker is loud and clear and reaches a very high volume when playing "wav"s or "amr"s, buttons are average, i don't really mind the buttons and i still don't understand why anyone cloud complain about buttons, connectivity with the computer is average nothing special, joystick is great, also great set of shotcuts but it takes time to memorize them all, battery lofe is average, and the most important, the phone looks just great, but it's not worth all it's price, for the same price range you get more worth phones such as SE K700, Nokia 7610, and they will give you more functions and at least they are more stable
I can also only complain that this is the worst phone I have ever had. I'm not going to complain about the camera/mp3player as I have a separate digital camera/iPod. What I want from the phone is simply for it to work - which it doesn't. The software freezes almost every other day, and here is the real killer: If you switch on your phone to make an urgent call - but don't wait looong enough for it to start up, it freezes on you and you need to restart. It is guaranteed. Fancy that - a phone that is guaranteed to fail when you really need it.
i'm a siemens lover and always change to new siemens, and right now i just bought S65, i really like this phone, eventhough the technology are not as good as competitor, for example the color is not brilliant, the photo is too dull. I just like siemens just because of function. Hopefully, next siemens phone are not made in china again.
i hv started to use s65 but i cant play mp3 on it or smart movi software does it possible to install above mentioned sftwr
Hartono, you dont need mp3, better is to covert them to .amr. It works well.
I'm new user of this phone (one week). Fireware 25. My opinion:
Telephony & management - excellent, very clear sound (i had some noisy lowend nokia before). Great Address book - here I miss one little thing - possibility to search by nickname.
Display very good display - with possibility to reduce light and save energy. For me is 10% just ok also in sunshine.
Quick menu with lot of possibilities to create shortcut.
Battery is weak a bit. It seems to me, that camera consumes lot of energy. I hope,that after few weeks, when I stop to play with camera, 4 days recharging cycle could be possible for my style of use (about 20 min call /day). Otherwise I must choose stronger battery.
Siemens PC software - mobile phone manager is
IMHO poor - it needs more than minute to start, and all this time it shows 'allways on top' splashscreen preventing me to do anything in centre of screen - but there is a great program called SiMoCo that works much quicker and better. I recommend this one.
Camera - no miracles, but I have expected that (have read lot of reviews before commiting to buy this one). Outside & sunny pictures are good, inside nearly terrible.
I believe that flash will help me.
Video recording - i think it's unusuable.
Sounds - not so bad, no bass. My favorite ringtones are played very well, but some other melodies i have tested were worse.
My conclusion - great phone for it's price.
It's high-end, but the cheaper one. So it cannot be perfect, but it meets my preferencees.
It's strongest functions can be found also
on CX65, but this one has
1. Absolutely amazing design
2. Megapixel camera, not the best in the world, but still much better than VGA.
this is not a fun phone, but it certainly is prob 1 of e most underrated & value-4-$ phones around. if u already have an mp3 player, then this is e phone 4 u. it's got everything u need and nothing that u don't. e 1.3MP cam is nothing 2 shout about, but it's still better then most phone cams. this phone is often criticised 4 its short battery life, but if u bother 2 do e initial charge proper then it's no problem really, unless u use a bluetooth headset all e time. e telephony n messaging is excellent, with a nice exterior 2 boot. thumbs up 4 S65!
I've had this phone for 6 months now and I can honestly say this is by far the worst phone Siemens have ever produced. Things to note: the battery life absolutely horrenduous; the phone locks up and crashes on a daily basis; no vice-dialing (S55 had it, what gives?); slow menu response; Bluetooth used to drop connection, fixed with fw43, though; awkward keypad and clunky buttons. My verdict: look elsewhere, Nokia 3230 looks like a good alternative.
I have found that there exist batteries of 1500 mAh for the Siemens S65 which has the double capacity of the original. I have bought one Max-Cell. I will post the results.
I have this phone for two months.the camera its so sad.I want to charge every day.The battery is terrible.DONT BUY IT
This is a good phone with good features. I have always liked Siemens, but this one is not as good as it should be.
I have bought one and thought I charged the phone this morning, now at night is almost empty so I will have to recharge tomorrow in the morning again. Battery life is very poor. Worse than many UMT's. If you just want it to last for 2 days leave it at some place and don't touch it.
Screen is good but low resolution. Other features are just fine. Keypad is very uncomfortable for writing messages.
Thought it can't play MP3's it plays WAV's with format DVI/IMA ADPCM 16khz which are smaller than a 128kbps MP3. It is proved. Just use CoolEdit Pro. Open a MP3, resample it and save it in the WAV format i have said. A music of 3:32 has a size of ~1,6Mb.
Of course don't expect to play many musics with its poor battery life. This capability is anetdotic.
The camera is good outdoors if there's much light and you are very still. Images are disfocused and with a little movement this is even more noticeable. Indoors the quality is poor. Images disfocused, dark, bad jpeg compressión, much noise difficult to take away, bad color, etc. If there's not much light the camera is really bad. No built in flash. No coments. Every time you take a photo you will hear a loud click and there's no way to quit it unless you use OpenDisk and a serial data cable to rename or delete the sound file in the phone's file system.
A phone is not a digital camera, but if you put a camera there don't put such unusable thing, just skip it. I would prefer a good VGA camera than a bad 1,3mpx one. Any way other phones have a camera worse than this one.
I have not found bugs nor hardware problems but I have heard complaints.
Good phone if you find it cheap, don't care recharging very often with almost no use and don't need advanced features. In that case there are other better phones.
performance is great
design is amazing
display is really good and big
camera is more than a good but at night you just pick up the flash (accesory added on )
and check the amazing features
A great phone, do not compare it -to a Nokia 7610 which is just too heavy and produces images which are, all in all, not good enough.
The 7610 is just that bit too heavy and fashionable - i should know, i've had 2 stolen.
