Reviews - Siemens S10

The Philips Genie holds the title of the lightest phone in the world and the new Siemens S10 now holds the title as the first colour phone in the world. Looking at the display it looks very washed out. There are three colours, red, green and blue. Whilst it's a interesting novelty it really doesn't make the phone any easier to use and in bright light makes it harder to see the display.

The phone is quite big by modern standards and measures 147 x 56 x 25mm (h x w x d). It uses a small sim card holder mounted in the side of the phone. Weight is a fairly good 185grams with the standard 1800mAh Li-Ion battery.

Featurewise the S10 is pretty much fully featured with all the features that you would expect in a high end phone, including a multitude of ring tones and more. The menu system like the system on the Panasonic G500 is not the easiest to use.

The phone performed very well, not as well as the Genie in most case, but certainly better then a lot of other phones on the market. Battery life is excellent and whilst I had no chance of measuring it with it's claimed time of 100 hours standby or 10 hours of talktime, I'm sure the 1800mAh Li-Ion battery could live up to that. Unfortunately I only had this phone for a very limited time and could not test it further.

The Kit comes standard with the phone, 1800mAh battery, charger and manual.

Options include Car kit, data card, portable hands free, car charger, desktop charger, retractable antenna and batteries.
