Francis.'s review of Siemens ME45

★★★★★
Siemens ME45

“This is a great phone. It is the Ferrari of...”

Written on: 28/09/2001 by Francis. (1 review written)

Good Points
Great Firmware! Great Design! it's like the ferrari of cellphones. Very sporty and cool shape, small but intelligent unlike Nokia 82s and 88 series that are small but few repetitive features.

Bad Points
Can't import Cakewalk midi files to it. Although there was no advice from Siemens to do it.

General Comments
This is a great phone. It is the Ferrari of cellphones. Cool design unlike the "boxness" of the Nokias. Good firmware! Does not have a bug. Try importing bitmaps done with Microsoft Paint or Photoshop - it works great!. Try importing WORD files and convert them to SMS then send. It can do that. But Cakewalk midi files imported to your phones will have a problem. Although Siemens don't advise that. Shockproof, waterproof,WAP, voice recorder, fax, IRda, Large screen, Composer, so many....etc. I like the voice command too! It is a GPRS ready phone! This is great! You must have it and forget the 88 series of Nokia that are too expensive and have less features.

10 out of 10 on all counts? this is misleading I've rated this phone highly, but it does have faults however small. If you read any review, beware all good or all bad the truth always lays somewhere in-between.

Im sorry, I found some bugs too after two months of use but they are not as worst as Nokia and Ericsson phones. I've had Nokia phones and Ericssons high end phones too but they are full of firmware bugs. I had thrown an irreparable 3310. Maybe you should get an Alcatel next time. The ME 45 provides more enjoyment than the bugs you mentioned. You must not overstate things to mislead buyers and scare them. The ME 45 has a few bugs not even noticeable to basic users and most of them are corrected in the Version o9.

I'm not so happy with this telephone (after 3 month of use).
<br>Many, many, many, many, many, many, many firmware bugs (NOT corrected upgrading from release 05 to 09)
<br>Are Siemens client beta testers?????
<br>
<br>Loss of signal in every conditions also in open space with big signal.
<br>Battery of my first release was dead after 1 day...!!!
<br>I've had 3 other Siemens phone before this one, but surely my next phone will not be a Siemens!

agree with existing reviews after a few weeks of use, but await GPRS support on vodafone network to access all functions. good screensize for failing eyes and illumination.
