Great looks, loads of memory for sms and etc. light and slim.
Crashes, ring tones.
I was considering between SONY Z7 and the Siemens SL 42 mobile phones. The Sony has great graphics and animation, very nice jog dial and graphical games with a Different ring tone to other mobiles. I really wanted the Siemens to be good phone but on the third day it crashed and was dialling 111111111111111111 all the time which also cost me my free minutes because it called answer phone and I could only stop it by taking the battery out. The graphics are not as smooth as Sony and the menu can be bit difficult to get used to. Playing Mp3 on it sound nice (Standard on sl45) But will cost you another 100+ considering the 16Mb MMC is not enough and you have to get a larger one also you need the cables and headphone that are not easy to find .
On the plus side you can save your funny SMS messages on the card and you won't run out of space. The Dictaphone is useful. The appointment book and calendar are good. The games are nice although not very graphical. The phone really looks nice and the silver colour will definitely not fade out like the Sony. By the way the lights under the 7,* has gone so .
