    joop, 13 Aug 2014Mark .. Thanks for your message .. i see you wrote it in 20... moreJoop.Nice to read something from you after a long time(indeed!)At the moment I still have a Philips cell phone.Type W 920.But that has something to do with nostalgic feelings?Because nowadays this phones are made in China by CEC and they "may" use the brand name Philips.And as you wrote;time flies..!Compare the cell phones from 14 years ago with the phones nowadays.But I miss the batteries most from that old fashioned models (of course these phones needed less power).

        joop, 27 May 2012WOW this is my first phone ever that i purchased many years... moreJoop,I had this phone too so long ago.And I -too- was happy with it...!In that time there was a test in a magazine here in Holland.The Xenium 9@9 was the best tested phone in that test.And at the same time Philips decided to stop the production of mobile phones in Europe...Hope they once wll come back with the latest models.Made in China with the brand name Philips.

            I had this phone aroung mid 2002, this is the first cell phone that I bought with my own hard earned money...

            the only thing that attracts me to buy this phone is the battery life. I don't really like the menu and other function (the side scroll key makes my finger hutrs, it has rough edges)

            Overall it was just ok.. I love the battery life though...

              I have one fully functional but haven't had used it for a few years. I've charged it last week and it works. So, if someone needs it, I'm willing to sell it. Send offers to

                One of the Best Cell Phone I have ever used. I have used total 12 different cell phones since 1998. This xenium is one of the best!!!(in it's day)

                The display is good, Long lasting Batrey, Menu work's just works!!! and also very2 tough. But I did not use it for a very long time (only almost 1 year) because I had to study to America and turns out it did not work there, something about the GSM frequency.

                Now I'm using a Black Berry 8900, but still have good memories about this phone...

                  This is an awesome phone! I have been trying to find one on ebay for the past month, but have had no luck.
                  They're so easy to use and very tough! i dropped mine many times and it continued to work like new. I wish i had never 'upgraded' all those years ago.
                  I'll guess i'll have to keep on looking. Wish me luck!! :)

                    Too good a phone. So handy. Strange, Philips stopped manufacturing this or could not market it properly.

                    Even more strange is, no other company has one as same as this one.

                      Hi everybody,

                      I have this model sinds about 4 years but I did not use it in the last 2 years because I studied abroad. The cell phone was not used, did not rechage. I began to use this week but I realized there is not in the menu to look at my sms, I only can write sms and I can not even receive sms. Do you have any idea how come this?

                      Greetings from Peter

                          I had it for 5 years and still working perfectly.
                          very good phone and very good stand by time up to 300h after all this time(really 300h).
                          very tough, it survived so much throwing and droping that I don't care anymore.
                          you can find it at a really good price and it's worth it

                            This is the best phone I have ever used.

                            I've had it for over 2 years in use. No problems and it did what an everyday phone should. And you don't need to charge it everyday, battery last really long.

                            Now just need to find a new "Xenium".. a color display model that would work 100% and have good battery.. I've tried few Samsungs - but no hope with those..
