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

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 camera phone

 

The Siemens S65 / S66 is a sharp-looking camera phone that can capture 1.3 megapixel photos. This phone is not all about fun and games, but you can actually do something useful with this GSM/GPRS phone, such as conference calls, email and...

Value for money: Th Siemens S65 / S66 is good value for money: a solid 1 megapixel phone that's fun to show off and use for every day tasks, such as organizing daily life, exchanging messages and snapping photos.

Siemens S65 review

 

The S66 packs a wealth of multimedia and communications features into a typically slick-looking Siemens package

A wealth of well-implemented features ; Decent megapixel camera ; Bluetooth and infrared ports ; Syncs with Outlook and Lotus Notes ; Memory card slot ; AOL IM ; Large display

Small keypad ; Tough to remove SIM card ; Underwhelming speakerphone

As for battery life, we reached just more than 4.5 hours of talk time, a bit short of the maximum rating of 5 hours, but certainly better than acceptable. Siemens claims a maximum standby time of 250 hours, or a little more than 10 days. Our unit...

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...
