The design is great, glass everywhere. Is it scratch-proof? I doubt the slider will still work good for 2 years. Too bad it has no audio player, not even radio FM. What phones will it challenge with, N6610 or N7650?
My Siemens S55 is the "WORST" phone I have ever owned after having an SL45 for two years I upgraded? to an s55 Its Crap! poor service coverage extremely Gadgety logos and ring tones check out "cocktail and cinema" you're joking and don't even think about the resolution fpr the Quick Pic camera there is no way of defining from the viewfinder what you have just photographed.this model is a real lemon my vote out of ten 2.5. Hope someone who can do something about this reads these comments for a $1K Aud. phone this is serious!
I read that they might not make this phone because it would have no market, instead they will make a Siemens S55i with 4096 colours and a MMC...
It does not have Symbian OS,and no built in camera??!!You have to use that stupid battery-taking plug-in camera?Stupid,I like Neonode N1 more than this one.
wow this is amazing mobile phone!
i am from bulgaria & i see this model of sl55 for the first time..
in bulgaria the latest model of siemens is s55..
IMHO, the best thing about SL55 is the sliding keypad design. It makes this phone one so small.
Nope! SL45 and S45 are still the best phones siemens have produced ever!
Come on Siemens!!! U are starting to lag behind Sony-Ericsson now and you're little Samsung catch u up in the market
I think Siemens should make a phone that has more than 256 colors. That is just not good, it is not much different from the S55. If Siemens was to build a phone with a MMC of 256 MB I would definitly buy the phone!!
no one knows exactly what the features of the phone are. the question is... what is so special about it???????? siemens should work on advertising
I am not really satisfied with the Siemens SL55 i think that the SL45i is even better than it. I think it is ridiculous to have a phone that small, the S55 is already such a small phone.
Excelente phone,but the display is 4096 colors.
Best phone ever made by siemens!
Until recently we could only view pictures of Siemens SL55, there wasnít any precise information about it. Now we were succeed to know some new facts about it. Firstly, the phone has the same opening system as Siemens SL10 or Nokia 7650; you can reply a call if you open a keypad; any tone can be assigned to this process. Respectively, if you close the keypad, phone call is interrupted. New types of icons appeared on the screen: WAP over GPRS and used type of a phonebook (either from SIM-card memory or phone memory). Itís very convenient. p>
Main menu interface is similar to Siemens S55; there are no differences between them. Submenus structure is very easy. You will get used to it quickly. The phone is equipped with 4-way navigation joystick, but it canít be pressed. Right soft key is usually used to select this or that menu item. Phonebook capabilities resemble Addressbook of S55, it has the same fields and it is also possible to assign pictures to names. Up to 500 phone numbers can be stored in the phone memory. There are 9 caller groups in the phone.
In the whole SL55 is very similar to S55 by features. But it doesnít support bluetooth and equipped with the other battery type Ė Li-Pol of 500 mAh capacity. We canít confirmed rumorus that the phone has MMC-card slot. Now we donít have such information. Respectively, a capability of the phone to play back mp3 files is also under a question. The handset will be available in three colors. In our opinion blue one is the most nice, orange color doesnít look so pretty.
same as s55 the case only changed!i thimk siemens has lost its mind now that the memory card is needed they don't put it!crazy siemens
