Siemens AX75, A75 and A70

The Siemens AX75, A75 and A70 are three real bargain basement handsets - the A70 being one of the lowest specified phones on the market, but Siemens have put some effort into their looks and cleverly they look much more expensive than they really are.

Siemens A70

It's pretty rare that we see a handset as basic as the Siemens A70, but this is a reminder of how phones used to be. There's no camera, a 101x64 pixel monochrome display, no Java and no WAP browser, but it does has polyphonic ringtones, two embedded games and predictive text, calculator and alarm. It's almost astonishingly basic, but the low number of features mean that the A70 weighs only 78 grams and has up to 5 hours talktime and 10 days standby. Available from Q2 2005, it comes in two tri-band GSM variants of 900/1800/1900 MHz and 850/1800/1900 MHz. Like the other new A series phones, the A70 has been designed to be as simple to use as possible.

A step up from the A70, the Siemens A75 adds a basic colour display (101x80 pixels, 4096 colours, CSTN), plus GPRS and a WAP 1.2 browser, inbuilt handsfree and all the other features in the A70. It's a simple handset to use, but Siemens have designed the A75 to look really quite stylish. Size, weight and battery life are almost identical the the A70.

Much more mainstream that the other two handsets, the AX75 adds a 128x128 pixel 65,000 colour CSTN display, Java, PC Synchronisation with a basic organiser, MMS messaging plus it can be connected to a PC via infa-red, USB or serial cable and used as a modem. Despite the added features, the AX75 is slightly lighter than the other handsets. There's also an optional camera. Again, Siemens have designed the AX75 to be as simple to use as possible and have come up with a good looking handset.
