Don't worry about the bugs, it'll be amended in future firmware.
Basically, S75 & SL75 share the same firmware.
One thing for sure, if you love a phone, you'll purchase it though it has bugs :-)
Im quite satisfied with the phone by reading reviews but its still not available in Pakistan. which is infact a big market. seimens is always late in Pakistan.
I'm from Indonesia.
I've heard that this phone has so many bugs. Even in the FW upgrade process, there are some bugs... That's completely disappointing.
I'll wait for the upcoming slider (will be announced next week, I believe), see its specification, and I'll decide.
Wow... You've posted the same message everywhere! LOL!
I really want this phone as soon as possible. It's already January 2006 but still not available in my country...

i'm quite setisfied with mobile but it is still not available in Pakistan..
Siemens is always late in releasing their mobile phone
Yes. The display is really good. Even with only 132x176 pixels resolution. But it's in 1.8 inch, so it'll look fine. Much better from the 65 series. And the brightness has also improved.
sorry for all but you may have to see the display before you judge because this reselution is so much good with the phisycal size if you want to believe me just check the older models as cx75 or m 75 because the dislpay of those two phones are amazing specially when comparing it to samsung or se thanks
This is a very good telefon.Infortunately this GSM is not available in Sofia Bulgaria.
Yes, i totally agree with lucien.. they should learn from sony ericsson for the lcd resolution.. should have 176x220 or 240x320 for nicer display.. no need to have 256K colors, 65K is enough.. this would help the battery last longer.. peace.. :)
maybe they should ask panasonic or sharp to develope their phone's lcd's ...i mean, look at the specs. being one of their a-class phones the lcd should at least have 176x220 pixels
To : Ma'en,
That prototype model is actually a working version. It has a firmware 00 version
We Need A review On gsmarena for this phone cannot u just get a prototype and make a review
S75 is available in Germany
I think additional memory cards are important. Because sometimes, if there's a slot of big files in the built-in memory, the phone will go slow. That's why having an external memory is quite an advantage.
This model is doomed to fail.
From beginning all S-class Siemens were high class phones with excellent perfomances. Now, new S75 has camera that was attractive one year ago! Why they did not built in 2MO camera?
MP3 player? All other brands has it long time ago.
Memory? Pretty low for todays standard. I don't see why I have to buy additional memory - it should be built in phone.
All in all - it would be a great phone if it was releasead a year ago.
