I have had the siemens now for 4 months. i have sent it for repair 4 times. Thekeyboard on the left hand side seems to have a mind of its own. This phone is really testing my patience. I heard that siemens is closing down their moblie communications side of business. Well with crappy phones like this no wonder. I have nothing more to say about this phone. when i get my new phone i will post my opinions of that phone. So for decent and reliable advice email me or post your questions.
Yeah the phone turned to a pos. aha battery life is the worst ever.. very dissapointed. with Siemens. yet the megapixel is not good because of the lacking color screen
although it worked properly for about 3 weeks, the phone is in repair for three months now and Siemens doens't respond to any fax email or letter.
The battery lasts for 2 days maximum.
Quality of the camera is bad comparing other phones.
Bad shock resistant and the housing starts breaking.
The software was outdated when bought.
But where can I get original software?
In Croatia,or close to
Almost excellent phone has Bluetooth Infrared many futures a great speaker and really very easy to use when you get familiar with its menu .Only camera is average For its futures and quality i give it 9/10 only radio and mp3 player missing but its a bussines phone not for fun
Wonderful .. amazing phone
I`d like to thank Siemens company to made such a good mobile like this..
1.3 mp cam and this uniq style ! one thing you can do when u see it ,, Buy it !
Freddy shut up, take it from me genuine readers. Its not that good of a phone. I now have the sony ericsson v800. Cracking phone. The battery life on the siemens s65 is awful. Really awful. The phone is stylish and has some good features but the firmware software and the operating base is too too slow. I dont care about the mp3 player as this is a business phone. So all those complaining about that go buy a mp3 player u miserable lot. Out of 10 i will rate this phone 7/10. It is a good phone but not as good as they say. PLenty more better options. Thank You. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it
I have recently bought a Siemens S65. It looks nice and does quite a good job. Still I have some problems with it:
1. The standby time is at most 72 hours (compared to the promised 250).
2. Photo images are not so good, as they tend to be blueish.
3. I have serious bugs in firmware (eg. when I try to acces the Browser->Setup->Security menu the phone freezes.
4. The browser is quite dumb compared with my old ME45's one. I can no longer acces Yahoo Messenger from it... The message displayed is 'Invalid content'.
5. I have frequent 'Out of memory' messages for complex pages.
i'm looking at this phone lately and i really like it though i'm hasitating between s65 and other phones!
i read here that the camera quality is not so good. at the siemens site there is an update for the firmware of that phone. can anyone tell me what is the difference after updating the old firmware with the new 12th firmware. there is written that there are improvements in photos quality, sound and software. what are these improvemnts actually? and one more question: what is the maximum time for video recording and will it be increased after downloading the newest firmware.
thank you guys and i'm expecting some info from you.
bye for now!!!
brilliant design... only if the polyphony was better and maybe a mp3 player ... then this would have definitely been a phone for me to get.
still, its features are nice... u should hold it in ur hand. U'll love it!
To Walter:in stand-by stands 5-6 days and in continuos talk 3 hours tops.
To morpheus; don't listen to emo_hristo, he didnt even buy his k700 yet, he bases his comments on what he reads. I had k700 and sold it before i bought Moto E398, and my friend had 6230 he sold it, too so, if you are looking for a phone for music and mp3 player with stereo speakers and expandable memory(which k700 doesnt have) and with better screen resolution 176X220( which 6230 has only 128X128) than go for Motorola E398. I guarantee you won't regret.
This website is not the official website of Siemens or any other phone company listed here...If its not immediately obvious to you.Nor do their staff look at your opinions.You won't get a reply ever.So go to the official siemens website and contact them there.
Can someone give me the honest truth about about battery life on the S65 as I seriously want to but one but have read nothing but slang on it.
I had purchased Siemens C25 mobile in the yr 1998 which gave me a satisfactory service for 6-yrs. Impressed by its performance I again preferred the siemens mobile and i purchased its A-52 model in February,2004. To my utter surprise this model started giving problems after 2-3 months from its puchase. The set was shown to your service center in Lucknow who could hardly do anything to satisfy me and since then I have been facing perpetual problems with this set which is beyond the competence of the man at the service center,who terms them as manufacturing defects. The problems are listed as under-
1.The dialling of numbers go inoperational quite frequently.
2.At times the dialled numbers disappear.
3.While talking on the phone the incoming voice gets cut at short intervals.
As the above problems are not getting rectified and refers to some mfg defects,it shall be in the fitness of the things that the set is replaced immdtly as the set is very much in the warranty period.
Hope you will act fast to restore my confidence in your products and exhibition of loyalty towards you.
