I bought my S65 November of last year... it's quite easy to use and has a fast OS... One thing though, the camera shutter could not be turned off... It also takes nice pictures during the day or in a bright room... its camera is not really suitable for taking night pictures... picture quality is nice during the day or when you're out under the sun, since the colors will come out right and quite vivid... For photos taken indoors in indoor lighting, the color of the picture becomes quite pale or light... Sadly, it can't play mp3s & some wav files.. the memory is not that big so it really can't store mp3s... But i still love this phone despite everything since this was my first camera-phone & the features of this phone is great, user-friendly and durable : )
Hi, I got the S65 phone a few months ago and I have to say that it's been peachy so far. The phone is pretty fast and quite easy to use. The camera is great, and especially in outdoor settings. I have very little complain about this phone, and its functions definite outweigh the nitty gritty problems it has.
I bought this phone second hand for less than USD150. I previously owned a Nokia 6260. Well, I was delighted. The speed of the OS is so much faster (especially accessing the MMC),lighter, more option than the Symbian Series 60(check out the variety of vibrations in Siemens S65). The camera do need care & getting use to. I love the overall design & display layout. Tips for people who complained about the battery life> reduced the "illumination" setting to 20% and u will get minimum 3 days of usage.(mine is a wear off battery unit!!) The speaker is better than 6260. The wav format, when used as ringtone is comparable to mp3 playback through phone speaker( it's smaller too). The Bluetooth in S65 give many more functions then Nokia 6260 too(when combined with my PC Bluetooth USB toggle). I'll give S65 8 out of 10 rating!!
Hi, i have a question.. What telephone is better S65 or Sony_ericsson K700?
This is a company supplied phone, and others with same phone have the same faults, mainly:-
turning off/browning out,(slowly shutting down+cant stop it) extremely annoying!
I have tried with key lock, in a case, but you cant stop it!!!!
volume control falls off.
I find menus are slow, especially when in the car kit.
As a general phone I find it quite good (apart from above), I use camera quite a lot at work, and find it acceptable, although not good in poor light, but if you want a camera with flash, buy a camera.
IRDA works ok with laptop, pics either way (as long as sizing is ok).
Its a pity there seems to be such a problem with turning off for no reason.
Man, I don't know what you have against this phone. Mine works great, the pictures are very clear the videos are superb, and it feels like a very resistent phone after all the falls it's received. Cheers
I've had this phone for about a week now and i'm very satisfied with it. I bought it second hand, it has a 32 mb card and here is my problem, i can't copy anything on the card, and when i want to format the card i'm being asked for a PHONECODE. I don't know this code and i only have two more atempts. Is there a universal code or something. What can I do. Can someone please solve my problem.
hello people. I want to mention some of the drawbakcs of this device and ask u some things. I had the S55 and i believe it was better mobile than this. S65 has a terrible camera(it can't give a full color spectrum
when there is low lighting. even with a big room lamb or two it cannot show normal colors. conclusion? the interior/exterior function doesn't do anything. secondly about the camera. it doesn't have flash!!! S55 had. omg did anyone mechanic in siemens thought of it?anyways. another disadvandage is the black-gold theme. i mean u cannot change that gold colour on the menu icons. ecxept u download some others from around the net. another drawback is that it uses a low speed card memory that cannot also fit in a digital camera(even with adaptor).last but not least is the story with mp3s...was it hard for the programms to put a 100kb-application-mp3player in the mobile?it is annoying.anyways i want to ask someone if someone knows about any java mp3-player. so u trasfer ur mp3 onto ur mobile and open them with an java mp3 player.Is there any java mp3 player for mobile??? thank u!
the videos one this phone are rubbish they always jump and freeze and it is hard to watch
this phone is terrible the IRDA and the bluetooth dose not work very well
To take this phone is to select features instead of reliability!!
I has lot of features which sounds great, BUT it is totally unreliable - turning off, reseting, freezing in spite of having most recent freeware....really makes me angry...
What is more the"cool" fetures are not as cool as they sound! Camera absolutely useless indoors/ in conditions with weaker light... games slow... and freeze...
Please, if you are interested in reliable phone for normal user DO NOT BUY this PHONE!!!!Unless you want to loose your money!
This is a rubbish fone it starts ok to begin with but after about 5 months all it dose is freeze i would not recommend this fone to anybody
I wanted this phone a lot, after i read this opinions i was a bit frightened...but i took it. I was so disappointed! Camera is not that bad, but it hangs during application running, notes deleting, its battery lasted 9 hours of semi intensive use - believe me!!!! Really bad!! Features are kind of OK, but overally very slow.... such a pity!!!
Please do not be as stupid as I was, do not buy it!!! Every user of the phone has problems!!!!
in business use, the s65 is a bad choice. battery is insufficient. calender sync with outlook is impossible when the daylight saving time switches: every appt shifts one hour and the s65-software syncs shifted events back to outlook - what a mess. repeated events with incidental changes are not supported. the s65 often switches off sponteaneously or initializing database for 10 minutes.
Can someone tell me how to listen music on this phone. I know that it's a bit difficult without MP3 player, but is it possible to turn MP3s in some other format which is readable for the phone.
i'm using this phone currently...at first i thought it's a good phone with all the features stated... and it's the first 1.3 mp camera phone...but it's just the size, the pic quality sux at night...the photos must b taken with the present of sufficient daylight...
1 more thing is it cannot play mp3 n this really annoyed me.. when playing movie it lags....
its only advantages r cheap price and nice design only...
its a one big problem with s65, it cant read mp3. but i heard that there is mp3 player for siemens. can someone tell me, where i can find it in internet?
