The Siemens SL45 has excellent features and usability. I sometimes found it hard to keep a good signal though. I have previously been a Nokia user, and i have to say the battery life on this phone kicks ass compared to Nokias. Do bear in mind that this mobile has a built in MP3 player, even though the battery life is fantastic! (read more)

I have been using Nokia phones for the past 4 years and the SL45 is my first Siemens phone. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. When I first got the Siemens phone I found the menu hard to use, but was fine after a few hours of playing around. A major bad point about the SL45 is sms, it can only hold 10 on the phone. Anymore will have to be saved on the mmc which is a pain, as you have to move them there yourself. Also access is very slow, but not as slow as the Ericsson T28. (read more)

The Siemens SL45 is the best mobile phone out on the market at the moment. You can't get a better cellphone at the moment. (read more)

this phone is the best out but if there was no mp3 player then it would cost £120($180) but they decided to put in a quality system and so costs £200. it is a phone that looks kool and for sum reason you find yourself wanting to touch it! the features are wicked but the intruction booklet needs to be burned because it is of no use at all. the only downside is that it can be hard to get to a certain point, sometimes you have to go through the little features to get to the big important ones...

Like others have stated, this phone has many exciting features. I would add that although I think the phone is good, it would be much better, if the folks designing its user interface would have known what they are doing. The right buttons are there, there is not much to complain about the hierarchy of commands - but there are many small (and even some not so small) problems in the user interface. For example, the idea of "quick select" is almost destroyed with "do you really mean it or... (read more)

Took me a while to work out how to change the time and date!!
Once you have had it a day you start to get used to the menu system. I have always been a 'nokia person' but they do not have anything that contends with this so they lost my custom. Previous phone-8210. Well its the same size and the Siemens is FAR better.
Do not hesitate to get this phone it is by far the best on the market. If you are particularly interested in GPRS then they are bringing out a new version that works using... (read more)

Large memory capacity. 32Mb MMC card in a slot. Hopefully able to take the new larger ones (128Mb and above) when they arrive on the market. Compatible type of memory cards to the Palm M505 which I have preordered. (I'm a Palm user addicted to the Palm V profile. ;-) )
The smallest multi-functional personal appliance so far: MP3 player, simple PDA functions(address book, notes taking, simple games) and mobile phone all rolled into one attractive 88gm package. (Does it have an alarm clock... (read more)

Rather than going through the usual feature stuff - Its great BUT for the syncing capabilities.
1) You can't sync the calender and contact details via a USB port. They don't supply the cable to the sync cable. Siemens only supply a 9pin D serial cable.
2) You can't sync calender/contacts via the IR port. When you phone Siemens they give some rubbish about too much data etc.
3) Real reason you can't sync is that the supplied software is rubbish - it crashes my PC all the time. You can't sync... (read more)

Similar size to 8210/50/8850, more functions than them. ultra large display can browse the net easily, more games, and sync to MS Outlook are just part of the functions. Composing melodies, vibra calls, memo recording up to 5 hours and easy to use interface! Perfect for trendy people! (read more)

This phone is without doubt the best phone available at the moment. It is as small as a 8210 but with a screen as big as a 7110!!! It has as many features as any other phone you can buy. It looks and feels so cool as well. If you see one, you will want one. Well done siemens, you deserve some serious recognition for this! (read more)

An MP3 player, a digital voice recorder & an organizer all rolled into one. It is absolutely ingenious. State-of-the-art technology in 88 grams. An almost endless list of multimedia capabilities and intelligent features.
