Its all you can ask for: Reliability, Usability, Functionality, Looks...
A fitting end to the CyberShot phone series... =)
no matter what you say.. Sony Ericsson phones are the best phones ever created in the world!
Arturiasaber, 17 Feb 2010I just recently purchased the C901, i have compared it with C510 and the Nokia 6700c. I saw a ... morehi there Arturiasaber!
reading your comment made me envious of your 901 unit. how'd you do it? have u tried using its xenon in a slightly lit room/area? you see, when its really dark, the xenon works well. but if there's a little light but you need use of its flash, photos will gave this "yellowish" fringe. maybe the flash is too powerful or something to that effect. ive been using "with xenon/lead flash" k800 & n73 but it didnt give me this yellowish photos. but using outdoor or even indoor with sufficient light, then your're right. c901 is the best! could you giv me tips how you shoot with xenon without having this "yellow" thing?? its the only setback this sooo beatiful phone have!
I want to know about the message space of C901.All space of inbox,Send items and saved messages.So can any one tell me????????????
I just recently purchased the C901, i have compared it with C510 and the Nokia 6700c. I saw a lot of comments about yellow fringing, but I never saw any during all of my test shots. Comparing the pictures, I wnt to say that the Nokia 6700c tends to oversaturate and certainly is no match for C901 at night shots, albeit better than C510 since C510 uses dual photolight LEDs. As for battery performance, The Nokia 6700c performed horribly, lasting barely a whole day. The C901 performed wonderfully, lasting 4 days. Both phones I used with the same conditions and number of media usage and txt plus calls. The C510 even performed better than the 6700c lasting 2-3 days.
Both the C510 and C901 have scratch resistant crystal displays. Keeping their beauty intact. The 6700c however, even barely 2 weeks had light scratches, both the screen and the back battery cover.
What I really loved about both the C901 and C510 is the threaded SMS/MMS. It gives you chat style messaging.
I would like to point out the biggest disadvantage for the 6700c, the 6700c runs hot after 5-10 minuts of phone calls. Also yuo cannot leave it charging. You will certainly end up with a leaking battery (if it does not blow up before leaking) The SE models can be left unattended even overnight, and you won't have to worry about overcharging.
Sound quality, The C901 wins this one providing deep, clear bass, the 6700c performs better then C510, C510 is just horrible compared to these two.
Overall, I certainly did not regret buying the C901. The 6700c and C510 however brought about a small amount of dissapointment. The C510 even performed better with color saturation and clarity in pictures compared to 6700c. The 6700c's only advantage over the C510 is that it comes with a better flash.
I have a k770 and it takes very good photos both indoors and outdoors.after it fell of my hand and its lens broke U cant take photos so I want to buy one of c901 or c902.honestly are c901s photos are brilliant like k770s?I mean indoor photos.are colours natural?or they are dark in indoor shots?I heard some people say that c901s photos are yelloish or brownish.Is it true?if yes ,is this problem exists in c902 too?please help me.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2010RUBBish, C901 is better in every way than C510Hey relax. I was talking about the screen. I've read plenty of posts here complaining about the yellowish screen. But you've got to admit, C510 looks slicker and the design is better (though of poorer build quality). Sigh.
thanks j for answering the google maps question! how do you update the firmware on this phone if you don't have internet?
dapper, 13 Feb 2010i think the thing about having the yellowish shades of the pictures taken with this phone isn'... moreThanks for the info dapper. Now I know my c510 has "better" screen (based on what you've said).
Better call and build quality, higher battery capacity (950 mah would do), and improved camera performance at night (a flash that works like Nokia 6303), c510 would have been perfect.
does anyone know if the google maps can be accessed without having the internet? (since i believe google maps is already saved on the phone.) Thanks!
m from the philippines.any pinoy out there who have tried lcd replacement of this phone?how?how much?tnx!
Aya, 13 Feb 2010Hey guys, I need to know if this phone offers "chat style" messaging like C903? It's... moreI Agree!!
I sold my C903 after seeing its poor quality shots O.O
Its camera is cheap by all means.
I sold it lossing about 70% of its prize.
I didn't try C901 but reviews says its a good camera phone.
this is my 1st SE cellphone. 2 thumbs up 4 this cellphone! worth to buy!
I love sony ericsson phones because its quality much better than nokia phones. Features in sony ericsson are maximum than price but features in nokia are minimum than price. Therefore i like sony ericsson phones
