poor battery-life indicator, even worse battery life.
I initially liked this Siemens M35 mobile phone - it looks pretty good and is supposedly shock and splash resistant. But I would have thought that for a mobile phone a decent battery life is a prerequisite... I soon found myself completely ignoring the battery-life indicator and charging the phone every night as on numerous occasions I was cut off mid conversation. Even when at home it is a nuisance, as it gives you approximately five seconds' audio warning to get to a charger to keep talking. A friend with the same phone has similar problems and seems to think it is a problem with the battery terminals but I just think it is fundamentally useless. In the end I went back to my damaged Nokia 3210 which is an infinitely better phone.
