i've been using the siemens s35i phone for at least eight years now, as i refuse to upgrade my phone when the old one still works perfectly.
the design is superb, and although by today's standards the phone is heavy, i very much like the weight of it. It is solidly built and has withstood several drops to the floor.
i've only needed to buy one replacement battery which gives excellent standby time as well as perfectly acceptable calling time. charges fast.
+ no-nonsense, to the point design with separated buttons
+ good battery life
+ good signal reception
+ does what it's supposed to: make and receive phonecalls, send and receive text messages
- somewhat sluggish operation right after bootup.
- limited storage space for text messages
