Size - it was the smallest free one at the time
Over a year old and still hasn't fallen to bits
I've had two of these Siemens C35i mobile phones for a while now and I have to say that it has put me off ever buying another siemens product. When new the battery life was acceptable, at 2 days or so, but very quickly this disappeared and now I'm lucky if I can leave it on standby for 1 day. When I actually wish to recieve or make a call, despite the battery indicator displaying "full" it will ALWAYS run out of juice and switch itself off if not plugged in.
The phone is also damned unreliable, crashing, hanging, resetting itself, losing network information or SIM card information. My old nokia 5210 still had 5 days battery life between charges after 2 years, and never ever crashed. It also had far superior reception.
