The G900 and C902 have the same SONY camera lens but the C902 has got PhotoFlash (performance very close to Xenon flash and can be used in continuous mode for shooting videos at night in QVGA 30fps quality) whereas the G900 only has a photolight which is not very good. So, the camera quality is much better in the C902 which also comes with all the Cybershot features (auto-rotate, auto face detection, bestpic, dedicated touch sensitive buttons, and the lens is proecteted unlike the G900)
I personnally tried both phones (latest prototype versions), and camera wise the C902 wins hands down. The flash is surprisingly powerful, I was really impressed!
What do you guys think? Would you prefer the G900 over the C902? And what would be your reasons? For me it is the C902, design (unique slide-out lens) and camera are important for me.
sony had a greate name today but not tommorro.the reason is disply is not inproved et...
cybershot = marketin, 28 May 2008Breaking news, the camera module used in this phone is from SAMSUNG. haha shame on sony erri... moreFYI, Nokia uses Micron and SMT cameras for their Mid and High end camera phones ;) for example, The N95 series and N82 uses 1/2.5" micron camera module. later on Nokia will buy from Samsung camera modules for their lower class camphones. So with all this you still think nokia does make it's own camera modules huh?
yeah, mobile-review is somewhat Nokia sided.
try to check other sources (CNET, etc.)

It was clearly written on the components list who the camera manufacturer is, in the C902/G900 cases it is SONY. Mobile Reviews cannot be more reliable than internal SE sources.

it states that the camera is from samsung, so it could be true giving the fact that the so called "xperia" is made by HTC.
Why still 256K colour? I think 2008 mobile phone must use 16M colour with 240x320 pixel

haha shame on sony erri... moreThe camera is a SONY. I just checked with someone who works in the assembly department. They have used samsung cameras before (and Samsung has used SONY cameras also) but definitely NOT for the C902...
Nice try though!

haha shame on sony erricson getting the camera from samsung then bragging about cybershot.
No offense but nokia is the only true mobile company out there.
Why GSM team not write this phone review?? I really want to heard about it!!
Wow, is this a phone opinion site or a bitching session? Ha ha
I will prob get this phone, loving the size, nice ans thin
I not a phone nut, so this is nice and simple with a bit extra
Optus Autralia should be getting this $0 on $49 cap plan 24 months... pretty good

Since I have a PhD in Statistics and Quantitati... moreWell done...I was worried you wouldn't find the answer. Sorry I didn't mean to keep you busy for the past 3 days though but I guess it was a good brain exercise! BTW I don't have a PhD, I just said that to see if someone would dare to challenge my gut feel...Basically all I did is compare the screens visually (not rocket science) as I have a life and don't want to waste it drawing screens and measuring them. I could have done better, I admit it! But congrats again, you must be proud!
People!!! Today I played with the C902 (prototype version) and I just loved it. It's unbelievably thin, very good build quality and the slide up lens is just WOW (it ads a lot to the phone style). I didn't like the keys though (hard to press and not well fitted), but the guy said that the final version would be much better. Usually, in the prototypes they revise these things last (same goes for the camera). The accelerometer is quite impressive when you play Need for Speed and the themes are nice too...No doubt this phone will be a hit.
Does anyone see potential issues outside of the screen size?.. software, durability, other?..
I could not resist :)
Since I have a PhD in Statistics and Quantitative Physics I thought I could clarify the 2" vs. 2.4" screen problem. In a rectangular shaped screen (like a mobile phone) a 20% diagonal increase will lead to approximately 1/3 overall size increase (roughly 33% and not 40% since the sides will not proportionnaly increase by the same percentage but by 16.67%). Hope that helps!
Give your PhD back!
A have calculated and I think I can say with pretty good accuracy that the screen area increase is over 40%!
1: The ratio of length (b) and width (a) of the screen: about 1.32
(you get it by measuring a nice big picture)
2: Assume a 2˝ diagonal screen with the same ratio - calculate its area: 1.93 (inch2)
3: Assume a 2.4˝ screen (20% increase - similar rectangular) with the same ratio - calculate its area: 2.77 (inch2)
4: Compare - it is over 43% increase!
You do not need a PhD for this :)
A caveman can do it :) or at least a few Greeks over 2500 years ago.
P.S. : What school is giving away PhDs in Statistics and Quantitative Physics - please let us know ! Seriously! :)
It is nice to see someone with an education here :)
I made that estimate of 40% screen area increase between 2˝and 2.4˝˝.
It was only an estimate without any measurements.
I do not know the ratio of length and width of the screen, I just estimated them.
(obviously, it can be measured)
Your result is 33% - I guess you did measure the screen length and width.
Now, everyone can decide for themselves whether 33% larger area significant or not.
For me, it is very significant!
i think this phone will be great...i am using K850 now but C902 is slimmer and will be more pocket friendly...
I don't know what I want anymore, no phone has the feature combination I want!
The C902 doesn't have a Xenon Flash which sucks! So I might as well go for the G900, since it has more features e.g touch screen and it's camera wont be much worse than the C902.
But... oh wait, the idiots didn't add HSDPA to the G900. So no matter whta I choose, there is a trade off! Aargh!!!
I want to buy a new phone and I'm considering SonyEricsson because my Nokia N80's battery life is absolutely crap.
But when I go to SonyEricsson.com and compare the C902 with the K850i, it seems that the C902 DOESN'T HAVE A XENON FLASH, and it also DOESN'T HAVE VIDEO-CALL.
Can this be a mistake on the website?
