Review Siemens ST55. Part 2

Part 1. Design, battery. Menu. Phonebook. Messages>>


Surf&Fun. The handset supports GPRS 4+2. So, it is easier to use wap-browser (versions 2.0) here.

There are three games in the phone - Funny Toggle, Wacko, Tetris. Your mission in the first game is to turn over pictures so that they become similar. In the second one you should press keys to prevent small animals from going from the hole. The third one is well-known Tetris.

Downloads. There are two folders in this menu: Melodies and Images. All downloaded files are kept jeer.

Звонки. Call counters and lists of the last 20 missed/received and dialed calls can be viewed here.

Sound settings. Profiles are not available in this phone. Only one type of ringing tone can be used. You can select sound volume and kind of ringing tone. Any voice record can be used as a ringing tone. The melody also can be created with a help of musical composer. The user can edit MMF-files just in the phone. The main and 15 extra tracks are available. It is pleasant to carry out an experience with sound.

Extra. The calendar has monthly and weekly view. When you view the list of reminders, they are displayed only as records of a special date, full text of reminders is not displayed. To view it, the use should press a key. It is not possible to set duration of the event, only its beginning. Recurrent records are not available either. Up to 50 reminders are stored in the phone memory.

Up to 10 text notes (50 characters each) can be created in the phone too.

Alarm clock can be setup for special days of the week. It’s easy to use it.

Countdown timer is also available in the phone.

World time function is not wel realized. Firstly, you can see a text menu. To choose a city, you should enter settings and them list cities on the map.

Autopower on/off function is available too.

There is calculator and currency converter in the phone.

Voice memo allows to make records (maximum time is 1 minute 14 seconds).

Settings. This menu doubles the other menu item – Audio settings. It is not obvious why it was necessary to do it. Nevertheless, this menu item is number one in Settings. There was an impression that developers just had to fill in the main menu, so, they decided to double this item. Among unusual display settings we notice a possibility to adjust wallpaper; the picture could be placed in several ways in this phone. For example, you can multiply the picture if the picture has lower resolution than the screen, or it is possible to stretch it to fit the screen. The easiest way is to locate picture in the center, not changing it.

It is possible to switch off keypad backlighting and remain display backlighting.

Any set of pictures (you choose their order yourself), not only digital clock can be used as a screen saver.
