I got my C905 today, i had the choice of getting the LG renoir or the Innov8 or wait for the Samsung: the Innov8 is phone that "8" too much, its chunky and very heavy and feels plasticky - the LG Renoir is a bit of a ladies phone, without sounding sexist, its very "pretty" just seems like a Viewty in extra make up! and omg the software faults i experienced: lagging menus, applications closing on first runs, texting slow in showing on screen!
The C905 is amazing as a genuine camera phone, a true cybershot, the GPS / WiFi are very quick to work, and the browser upgrade is very complimentary to the device. You cannot compare this phone to the Samsung M8800 since they are different form factors. Though this phone does not record videos at high quality, the camera is better quality and it has amazing battery life - all round this phone is a very good build, very sexy and masculine curves and responsive menus
I see that a lot of people are confused whether the c905 has secondary cam or not.
1. It has NO secondary camera.
2. It HAS video call - via main camera.

Bluemoth, 31 Oct 2008PolarBear could you confirm if there's a secondary camera for video call coz it appears from f... moreSorry to all, The circle infront is NOT the secondary camera for video call.The sales person also told is second camera for video call.it can use for video call by using back camera.This is so weird of using this way for video call.What happen to SE?? such a good phone but without secondary camera.Maybe next time SE will come out with the finest features phone but just no mic,use handfree or bluetooth for calling.Stupid SE.
i heard that this phone has video call but not front camera,it means that u can use the back camre.i have no idea about how!!!!!!!!!
This SE CEO guy is outta his mind, running his mouth over things he/she doesn't know. The Sony C905 is a beautiful device, the only lacking feature is VGA resolution for video taking. The Innov8 is a great phone, but its huge, attracts fingerprints, and the symbian os has a weird samsung touch which confuses alot of people. If you want a phone that takes great pictures and is just very handy, get the C905. If you want a smart phone with every last quality, get the innov8. The innov8 remids me of the N95, everything in in a bad package. On paper the innov8 is great, but the C905 in actuality is better. So, SE CEO person, get outta ur moms basement and get wit the program ok. :P
it seems it is a fully loaded gadget which sony ericsson wanted one in its sale promotion..wish them very gud luck for its success...price is a big constraint be little not too expensive some what in 30's or begining 40's
Great phone in any cases but where is the damn second camera on it?
Ive testing to videocall and it seems only working with the photocamera and not the video one (the front). Its seems to be made as an second cam but closer view its looks like it an just visual glass and no camera ...
Good job SE to introduce my first phone like this :D
Cybershoot, 31 Oct 2008The Innov8 makes the C905 looks like a Cyber Shi*But Innov8 will newer do quality pictures in the nigth like SonyEricsson phones(K&C series)!!!!
Eat yourself noob!
PolarBear, 30 Oct 2008I own this phone today.It has second camera for video call.There is no second camera on the handset when you go to video call you will see this for yourself. People think the little circle at the top of the phone at the front is a camera when its not.
I have the handset and its brilliant just pitty it does not have a second camera for video calling.
nick, 30 Oct 2008dani..symbian doesnt have a problem with virus's, all the applications need to be digitally si... moreok i accept that i am a brainless donkey but still i BELEAVE that c905 is a useless flop.
go for w300i if you want good se phone.
trust me mp is not everything
Me i'm a Sony Ericsson fan,i love this phone,i waiting on the market,and u know it's coming a new model:K900i!!!Verry best phone,with 7.2mp,and a new design!!!
This phone rocks and now I have no doubts that cyber-shot is the best. Lately, I have search for some sample pictures of C905 and some cyber-shot phones and damn it! It's really nice. I think those people that say that cyber-shot is just a branding idea just don't know how to use these phones....
