big screen, some features MP3 etc.
too frail- keypad only works sporadically, weak battery.
Had this Siemens SL45 mobile phone for 3 months now and it is my third one in the same year after the 1st was nicked, the replacement was found to be second hand (DONT EVER SHOP AT PHONES 4U!!). This one's keypad works only intermittently, and needs very firm presses to operate the keys. The battery does not last half as long as the Nokia 3210 I owned previously, and the phone seems to have a mind of its own, eg when you unlock it and do things it sometimes locks itself and vica versa!!
However as a phone and MP3 player it works and the voice dial is pretty good, just its build quality and operating system let it down a lot. It also chips really easily. I have only dropped it once when drunk and it looks like i have played football with it-with no interchangeable covers this is a real problem.
