This is a slick phone. Sure the nokia 7610 may have better video features but it is an ergonomic beast, not to mention it's hideous when compared to the style and sophistication that is the S65. I've had the S65 for 4 mos. and I find the battery's performance standard really, not great not terrible. There are also many ways to tweak and modify firmware and menus with this phone. The outdoor camera is great really compared with VGA although it is not the quality of nokia. But this is a phone afterall and the "communication" functions work famously, if you want a huge PDA-like smartphone get something else.
ı am very sad, ı used this phone for 4 months, all ı can say is siemens no more....ı am terribly disapointed.....ı sold it for another brand n......! sorry siemens...you must take care...you will lose a lot if you continue to issue such kind of machine... too much problem with firmware and software...
although this phone has nearly everything (bluetooth, irda, video camera etc) it is not all that good. the video quality is terrible, jumps all the time, the screen is too dull, the menus are literally black and white and the camera is meant to be 1.3mp. my motorola v80 has a better camera than this! avoid - get a decent nokia or moto.
can anyone tell me where i can download games 4 this phone??? i want it free......
Own S65, amazing phone, battery life is good if you change the default settings at they waste alot of battery, love the huge screen and amazing design, Can someone explain the comment about the d500 above, does he mean he sold his d500 as this is better or sold his s65 because this is worse????
This is my current phone after my SX1. It takes good, not great pictures; some photos look washed out unless you take them in bright sunlight. Outdoor pictures look fantastic.
I agree with the comment that the battery life leaves much to be desired. I charge everyday.
My phone has begun to show problems with communicating with my Palm T5; When using the SMS check function, my phone worked well for the first 3 mos., but now shuts off when I try to check my sms. It works fine when sending sms though. Also, my phone dies unexpectedly during calls despite adequate battery life. A visit to the Siemens concept shop has the technician puzzled because my phone's software is version 25 - it is up to date.
haluk d500 owns a s65/s66. I have a s66, and I just had a d500 in class yesterday. Way better, thats why I sold it off. It has a very bad battery life. If you are getting it be ready to charge every day.
Nice phone it can play video clip 3gp ,no mp3 player but 1.3 Mp camera looks good
the s65 is a great mobile but i want mp3 player do you know how to find mp3 player?pls
What is the build quality of this phone? I think it is nice looking, good as a second phone.
to cekibico: if you want some more features like "bluetooth and etc.." get a different phone. this is for trade men's not for teenagers. Complaing about camera? get a proper digital camera. Its main function is to call and receive calls not taking photos.
great phone.. i didn't have enought money to buy it, but now i'm happy with my CX65 .. in some cases it's much better than nokia 6230 :).. with the nokia you can't send pictures and movies over IRDA, ord BT
This is a reply for "xfan".
You are asking for a better phone. I hightly recommend you Nokia 6260. It's a great SMARTphone and it has everything.
GO READ THE OPINIONS FOR NOKIA 6260 FOR MORE INFO !!!
what about the design n user friendly? the manufacture of siemens must read this msg, because your design look odd and unpractical, for me ME45 is a masterpiece, afterthat...sucks....
I am a SIEMENS Mobile fan, but frankly this thing "Sucks". I prefer siemens all the time, and this time I did so and bought this phone, instead of a 7610, with a big enthusiasm. It was 1.3 mp and it had 250 hours waiting time. Just great for me, but I realized my fault later on. This thing can't take photos in dark, no night shot. If you turn on the Bluetooth, in 10 min the charge runs out. To make a sum, do not buy this one, CX65's photos are better than this, I tested.
No this does not have a mp3 player. trust me your better off on a 7610. Battery life will piss you off too.
Hi!I have one of this!S65!!!Good looking,bussines phone but regretabile the baterry,camera and software!
