Siemens S66


This professional-looking phone gives you a ton of features at a very reasonable price. It's a good choice as long as you can deal with its short battery life.

Excellent value for the money. Removable memory card. Good PC connectivity. Very readable screen. Excellent messaging.

Mediocre battery life. Quiet speakerphone. Poor camera quality in low light. No EDGE service.

Deeming it a "revolutionary upgrade" compared with earlier S series phones, Mobile Burn seems to have really taken a shine to the new Siemens S65 cameraphone. New features include a 1.3 megapixel camera and a 65K color screen, hardly revolutionary in...

Siemens S65 review: Just business


Siemens S65 is a very long expected business phone; number 1 of the German producer. It's earnest and conservative. S65 is heavily loaded with the functions, featuring an integrated megapixel camera and a memory card slot.

Siemens S65 stands among the three most expected mobile phones of the last half a year, besides Nokia 6230 and Sony Ericsson K700. And it will be still these three mobiles, if the producers won't introduce some other earthshaking model. The Siemens...

Siemens S65 vs. Nokia 7610: Comparing the megapixels


We compared photos made by two of the first megapixel camera phones. Have a look how Siemens S65 and Nokia 7610 managed taking the same scenes. Note the exposure, noise and color balance; the resolution is not everything.

Nokia 7610 photos are on the left side, Siemens S65 photos - on the right side. Once again, please note the bigger size of the files, we published the originals to give you the best possible way to compare the photos

Siemens S65 live photos


It will be very interesting to see how the market will accept this megapixel camera phone, and what share Siemens S65 will be able to steal from its main rival - Nokia 7610. We will publish a full Siemens S65 review in a week or two; until then you can...

Siemens S65


With its office functionality and a megapixel camera, the triband S65 is a mobile phone for busy professionals.

1.3-megapixel camera ; Nice screen ; Easy to use

No MP3 player or FM radio ; Experienced occasional problems with Bluetooth

One problem we did find with the phone was that it has a tendency to freeze occasionally (especially when using the camera). However, as we had an early demonstration model for this review, Siemens might have updated the S65's firmware to rectify the...

Siemens S65 Tri-band Mobile Phone


For consumers who enjoy large and highly viewable visual displays on their mobile phones, Siemens' Tri-band S65 would definitely be in the running for your money. Not only do you get to have a well-crafted and designed handset, you'll also get to enjoy...

Siemens S66 Review


Long awaited by consumers, the Siemens S66 is the top-of-the-line model of the x65 series, featuring the same platform as the CX65 and M65, the S66 is targeted towards business consumers

With its clean aggressive design, tri-band GSM compatibility, productive modular applications, and Bluetooth synchronicity, Siemens undoubtedly had had business consumers in mind. However, that's not to say other consumers won't enjoy the large TFT...
