No doubt a very good fone... but it seems Sony and Ericsson are not likely to continue in the future. As they are facing losses and i have read on mobile-review that sony's C.E is considering to brake up the venture with Ericsson. Also you can check out wikipedia... Jst type Sony Ericsson there

Guys, remember that this is not considered a high-end phone, rather - a mid- to high-end one.

How could anyone say that this phone has same design? This handset is the first of this kind for the company. they do have some slider phones like w580i etc., which r stylish, with much rounded edges. This phone is new for the company, it is a great slider with sharp edges which does make feel nice. Nokia is actually the one did copy the N95 to models like N96 & N85. If u do have some doubts about the design then see the nseries first then reply

second, i always wonder why you se fanboys keep telling lies about how se invented this and that when none of their claims are true.

third, everybody know se is going down. their market growth is negative for the past two year, so in the near future i doubt there will be no more se branded phones. so.. why bother?

Hey all

I work for an operator in Europe and I have this phone, started using it today actually. I honestly switched from an 3G iPhone to the G705, before my iPhone I had a Nokia E66.

These are my impressions from using it intensly a couple of hours:
1. Overall the UI is absolutely outstanding. Everything makes sense and you can do all the actions you'd expect. IMHO the UI is on par with the iPhone, and definitely much better then the Nokia E66.

2. It is very quick and there is absolutely no lag at all in the menus etc. It's even faster then the iPhone, for example when opening the SMS inbox and phonebook. The E66 is slow in comparison, but still OK I guess.

3. The overall build of the G705 is quite OK, but the Nokia E66 feels more luxurious. The G705 is all plastic except some keys in the front.

I'd also like to highlight some new features that SE have added:

*WiFi* - The WiFi on the G705 is soooo easy to use. The performance is great too. This is the first "dumb phone" from SE that I use with WiFi and they have done a really great job. All of you who have used WiFi on iPhone know what I'm talking about. The Nokia E66 WiFi implementation feels much more "techy" and is nowhere nere iPhone and G705 in ease of use.

*SMS/MMS* - Maybe a smaller thing to some but SE have done a major upgrade to the way SMS and MMS is used. This is the absolute best SMS/MMS implementation I've seen in all my years in the industry. SE are really taking it to the next level, and since I use SMS and MMS a lot that makes me happy. :-)

*Browser* - As mentioned in the article SE have done a good job in integrating Google search into the phone. However I still think that the E66 have the best search features. The browser in G705 is quite fine, but the one in iPhone is better.

As you may have guessed I really like this phone. :-) It's definitely a keeper and I'm not switching back to either of E66 or iPhone.

If you have questions about the phone I'll try and answer, but no promises. And I won't answer any questions about price or availability.

Ok now time for my comment...well all i can say is that the nokia e66 offers everything this s-e has to offer!

the nokia e66 looks better, higher capacity battery, better materials used, auto focus camera, infrared, better display 16.7 mil colours, slimmer, scroll key, 2.5mm headphone jack, micro usb, symbian - more stable user friendly more customize, Hscd, Voip, office apps, push to talk, turn to mute feature, and many more!!!

so why choose the s-e its got literally nothing new!!!

Same old design from SE. SE design all the same :-(, I am so worried because I think SE is the only brand tat can dethrone Nokia for number 1 position.
