Siemens cell phones are cell phones that were manufactured by Siemens Mobile Siemens AG until 2005. It was in the handsets of this brand that innovations such as a color screen, an MP3 player, a slider form factor, memory cards first appeared. Due to the relatively high quality and relatively low cost, the phones were popular in the CIS, as well as in some European countries, for example, in the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, etc. But since the 65th series, the popularity of the manufacturer in Europe has fallen dramatically.
Despite the fact that the phones of the 45th and 55th series were very successful, the released 65 series could not successfully compete with the phones of other manufacturers because of not very successful technical solutions and poor management. The 75th series did not correct the situation and in 2005 Siemens Mobile was declared unprofitable, and in October of that year it was sold to BenQ.
