This phone was my first mobile phone, I really liked it, first I will list the pro's and then the con's...
- Size, this mobile phone is mobile, it's small and light, just the right size, not to big, not too small...
- Keyboard backlight, this phone has a keyboard backlight when you type, not all of them have that, that's definately a plus for me.
- Unbreakable, this mobile phone is unbreakable, you can through it of your bike on the pavement and it'll be still alive, believe me I tried, not on purpose though...
- Clear sound, you can hear the other person during a conversation very clearly, there's also a button to put the other person on speaker.
- Screensize, the screensize is small for such a small phone, but they could have made it bigger if you ask me. The borders around the screen are big and the screen could have been made bigger...
- Features, this phone doesn't support mp3 ringtones and that's a pity if you ask me.
If you are a prepaid user who just wants to call in case of an emergency this is a great phone for you, if you want just a little bit more, don't go for this phone...
I am not a heavy mobile phone user. Although we have a number of them in our house. This particular one I bought a few years back, and although no frills, is probably my favourite.
At the time it cost about £30 if my mind serves me right, but now you can pick up a cheap one for less than a tenner!
So what is it I like about the Siemens phone. Well simplicity, if I am completely honest. Life is too complicated as it is sometimes. So if I want to make a call or send a text, I don't want to spend 20 minutes doing so.
There is no camera on the phone, No 3G, No bluetooth, No infrared port, No GPS, No card slot, No radio - but these are all positives for me.This makes the phone so easy to use.
So what are the good parts about the phone. Well it is really easy to use. It isn't too big 105.6 x 46.8 x 17.5 mm and only weights in at 79g. It has a low SAR of 0.40 w/kg and has an alarm clock and a few games as well. It also has a hands free function.
So what have a found good about the phone. Well everything to be honest. The battery gives me a good few hours talk time, it has been dropped quite a few times, and still stays strong. It looks fairly stylish, but obviously not as good as some of the more recent ones.
I have always found the reception to be very good with the phone. Texting and making calls is so simple, just like using a normal phone. It also has a lock down facility for added security.
My 5* rating is because it gives what it promises. Not that it is asinging, all dancing phone.
Superb Budget Phone. Highly Recommended
