Advantages: Design, Size, Features
I've had my SL45 for nearly 14 months now and I have to say the honeymoon period has now officially worn off. I'll begin with the plus points:- The phone itself looks fantastic and I like the large screen. The metalic casing is a classy touch and Siemens has done well to produce reasonably sized buttons on suc a small handset. The interface is easy to navigate and it has every feature you may need, including the excellent feature of being able to swap data from your phone to your PC and vice versa. All this I like. I feel less than pleased in a few key areas: firstly the multimedia card barely contains enough free space for more than a couple of MP3 tunes if you have plenty of addresses stored and you use the dictaphone as well. I feel like a twat listening to music on my phone anyway. The metal casing tends to scratch rather more easily than my old plastic phone and the damn thing is just the right size to get stck at the bottom of my jacket pocket. My main gripe though is that the multimedia card seems to loosen every other time I need to look for an address and I'm forced to take it out and put it back in again. Multimedia card errors and the phone freezing and crashing frequently make me tear my hair out.
Having said all that I'm still fond of the thing. I liken this experience to when you realise your new love's human failings (bleaching facial hair, snoring etc). You still can't help love them though...
