C905 would have been better in the 8 megapixel shootout with the proper settings...
Excellent shape. very attractive look. good features and fabulus camera which is ever created before, with fine colours. any way its a fantactic phone.
After reading the 8mp shootout review I believe that Innov8 came first,then comes C905,then the LG KC910 and the last place is held by Pixon.
SE has improved a lot ever since they launched K850i,
Excellent Job SE,keep it up!
Sony Ericssson c905 is Incomparable to any other mobile! So to all the fakers out there, eat yah hearts out!
Dani, plesae dont compare the US to the UK. You obviously havent been out of the US. Anyway just for the record UK lead the world in mobile phone networks. The largest cell phone companys are British. Even when i watch programs from 5 years ago from America they never have cell phones. We have had cell phones in the UK available to the mass market for 15 years now.
BTW you dont have even have fibre optic broadband yet aswell.
Good camera, but rubish software. c702 is more reliable than this one. But if you want to be travelling to and from your store to return it then go for it otherwise give this a miss.

you know you all love the controversy surrounding crappy SE phones
I don't care who is more superior or whatsoever. This is not a forum for people who just want to brag about the status of their nation. I don't see the point in here.
This is a forum dedicated for C905 and definitely not a forum which talks about the best country!

So I don't un... morerunning phone without os is just like using old nokia phone remember the black and white display phones by nokia and running a "smart phone" is like running with time and not hanging in stone age nokia still have some sets running on " 1 firmware for 1 model " setup if you feel embress to use smart devices go for those phones they will serv u better and if talking about a camera u can buy a good 10 mp cybershot point and shoot camera from sony in your respective country in the remaning cash.

i am from USA and my nation is far superior than any country in wHOLE world.i wont like to bring UK in picture even.as far as technology goes no one can beat usa ever.we have largest wimax network in world thats why i asked u whethere you have edge gprs 3g in your nation.
Hi everyone.The same thing happen with se w595 that has video call function but without front cam.People bought the phone thinking the small circle on top of screen is the front cam but its light sensor.They really felt disappointed n cheated after they bought it.Check out w595 user opinion section.Se should realize that current phone with video call function should come with front cam.For the record,i've emailed to se to highlight the problem.Hope to hear from them soon.
the monthly plan in melbourne for the SE c905 is FREE on the $49 plan
when do u rekon it will drop to $29 monthly FREE??

I don't know if it's just my phone but honestly my sony ericsson is better when taking photos than other phones of my friends like N91, 5300 and N70.

I've been reading the comments here for some time as the C905 interests me but you keep reacting negatively like one "mstl" did on another SE phone (G900). Are you two hired by Nokia or what? If you don't like the Phone just stop bothering about it. Here are mostly SE fans, like the Nokia phone comments probably have a lot of Nokia lovers as readers. You can't convince many people, especially when you keep repeating yourself. Go away please..
Btw, I'm a Sony Ericsson fan, although I try to be as objective as possible. I just think this is an awesome phone and that's why I've ordered it. But when I receive the phone and it seems to have problems or failures I'll report that here as well. For now: can't wait to own and use one!
Every top mobile company (SE, Nokia, Samsung, LG, etc) will release 10MP phones. So I don't understand why people come here and tell that Nokia is gonna release 10mp phones. We know it..
C905 is the best camera phone in the market now. It has all the features but doesn't have an OS. Is it a problem? A matter of personal choice. It is not a problem for me. In fact, it is an advantage for me, because browsing and stability is much better without an OS.
If you wanna install lots and lots of new programs and use the phone as a computer, then go buy a phone with an actual OS. The features of this phone is more than enough for me and I really want the phone to be stable, so I will go with C905.

just bought this phone. Not that satisfied. In my personal opinion, It should've been more compact and solid. I felt the design to big and clumsy. Keypads are not tactile, Camera cover is shaky. But other than those everything is as expected, not to mention about the camera. Guess I'll stick back to my w980 for its solid and compact design, actually w980 camera is so fine although it lacks of many camera abilities. The color imo wins the c905.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I totally agree with you.
People are different and so their wants too... You just can't expect 100% of all the people in the world to like samsung innovate or N96.

VGA is better than QVGA.
640x480 vs 320x240. it is just better. 4x the resolution my darlings. get over it.
