Advantages: Reliability, Interactivity, Style
First of all I’d like to say I bought my siemens C45 in October of last year and has never let me down to date. Everywhere I go I drop it, it’s got scratch marks all over and the top doesn’t clip on properly. Even worse I have three other covers and they’re all smashed to bits.
Everyone has got a Nokia because of the name, I’ve had a Nokia 3310 but for me the c45 outclasses it by far. It has more features, more style and more reliability. The only thing that lets it down is the navigation buttons at the top. The up, down and select buttons are all joined together which is a pain in the neck really, because you try to press one of the select buttons, instead you press up or down.
Talking about the C45 is ending up comparing it to the Nokia 3310 so I might as well carry on.
Style is what the phone is about with every part of it being curved; you could call it aero dynamic. You just can’t class a phone as that though can you? Anyway, if you hold a C45 in one hand and a 3310 in the other you will see how heavy, dull and boring it is compared to the C45.
As for games the 3310 is better fun-wise. Bar that mobile phones are for ‘interactivity’ and ‘connecting people’ (as Nokia say); Siemens do just that with this model and ‘batlemail’ from battlemail.com where you can play anyone with battlemail across the globe. Battlemail enables you to play people without a Siemens phone because it is playable from the net, so you can play without a c45 phone. All you do is choose your 5 attacks and 5 defence moves, then watch them fight it out on your handset. You have 5 characters to choose from:
- An oriental geezer
- A kid
- An afro-man
- A pony-tailed chick
- Also a spiky haired dude
I always choose the afro-man because he’s a real geek. When he wins he bops his head from side to side in a stupid manner.
For 25 people you can
create your own calling face. What you do is make a face up that best suits them; I think it’s called picture EMS (enhanced messaging service). What you have to do is choose three parts to the face; the top, middle and bottom then send it in an sms.
With a stand-by time of up to 200 hours and talk time of up to 5 hours it gives it the brawn behind the beauty. I usually charge mine for about 20 mins so it lasts me for a couple of days at least.
There are some things I have forgotten to mention like it only weighs 700 grams, a volume of 82cm, logo’s and most of all ringtones.

I hope I have convinced you to get out there and buy a Siemens C45 so we can swap logos and ringtones to compete with the Nokia fanatics. They’re in the shops for about £100 now so get out and buy one because they’d get my vote anyday.
