Siemens SL55


In case with Siemens SL55 the compactness is put on the top of the list, the device is extremely small, it lost in hand (82Ñ…44Ñ…22 mm). The weight of the phone is also minimal (79 grammes), the device practically is not felt in the pocket of shirt or...

The oblique form of the case looks interestingly, but compels using two hands at opening of the device, or opening the phone, shifting the top part with the big finger, which lies down on the screen. As result there are constantly traces from hands on...

The new Siemens SL55 is well-designed, sleek and it makes an attractive accessory for the fashion conscious mobile phone user. The functions that come with this tri-band mobile phone are excellent and we liked the fact that this tiny little device...

Siemens latest offering the SL55 is quite interesting at first glance. With its innovatively small yet usable look, you could just be sure you're not going to develop your biceps by using this one. The only question remaining was does this phone run as...

Little phone that packs a powerful punch with a pretty face. Nicely designed, beautifully finished with lots of useful features. Only let down is the key pad and poor reception, may be later models in the same series could improve on these...

Review: Siemens SL55


Looking for a stylish and compact handset that can dish out the goods, and then get tucked away in a pocket without notice? Siemens might just have what you crave. The SL55 is a great little phone, even with a smallish battery.

Consumer review by: lingaz (



Overall, the looks of the phone are fantastic. Functionality as a phone is wanting. You're left wondering whether this is a glorified paper-weight.

The looks are great and fits perfectly for anyone with style. The size is good for those who like minimalist style. The sliding function is good to lock the keypad.

After much use, the sliding part of the phone actually came off. It ended up in two halves. This could be due to wear and tear - frankly this is a worry. Although it can be put back together again - I don't have faith that it won't happen again. The...
