Hey Sticko yeah N93 has a good video camera, and a nice 330 mhz, but it doesn't has the hardware acceleration of UIQ 3 phones plus the still video camera of Sony Ericsson Phones is by far much better than those on Nokia, and also Sony Ericsson P990 has a higher capacity within the tests of Benchmarks than any Nokia N93 or E70.
Vince, when you installed the firmware it appeared the message that the new firmware version was successfully installed?
i think im having problem with the new firmware, out of nowhere my phone suddenly goes into USB mode, as if it was connected to the pc, but it isnt! it started when i connected it to my pc using the data cable, and then after that, it keeps on displaying the USB icon on top of the display. has anyone had this problem?
look here to know all about ur p990 i had been user of 7710 and i am not planing to buy another slow celphone.i love touchscreen but n93 with processor of 330 mhz rocks
Bought P990i in Oct. '06 in Taiwan. Used P900, a good phone, for several years until now. I will not mention all the positives as most of you can read the reviews. I will, however, shared my personal "not-so-good" experiences.
(1)Cannot view the phone under direct sunlight.
(2)At times, it freezes and then, auto terminates/restarts itself without warnings.
(3) The response time is noticeably slower than the P900.
(4)If the top section of the answering button is not pushed correctly it will hang-up the call instead.
(5) The most annoying and recurring issue is the "alarm" will sound when it supposes to, however, it sounds off randomly when it NOT supposed to either. This has caused me nightless sleep to myself and my wife as sometimes, it goes off like 3, 4 or 5am instead of the programmed 7:30am. It goes off again sometimes every 5, 10, or 15 minutes. Yikes! and embrassmenet especially during office meetings. I have had it re-programmed and software undated 3 times in the last 10 days and even called the SE Taiwan help desk, all without success. The worst of all, the local sony ericsson dealer will not replaced nor do a refund me a new phone and will try to "fix" it again and again... I guess I will soon file a complaint with the local consumer protection agency. That is my personal story and you decide what to do. Please help me with solutions if you have encountered similar problems.
Hi all I am getting this phone very soon the fact that is hasn’t got a camera does not bother me. How often do you guys use your camera on the phone? I used to be a Nokya fan but no longer now. I don’t want to bad mouth Nokya phones or anything like that but I really think SE makes better phones. As for guys complaining about problems with the phones, software I just want to say its human nature. We all make mistakes cause we are human beings so please stop complaining about phones that hangs or shutdown by itself just switch the damn thing back on.
ok to (boring se)buddy why dont you name a phone then which has all the features of 990 then if its so outdated? (touchscreen,Handwriting recognition,keypad,keyboard,business card scaner,autofocus,wifi,2.78 screen,uiq 3 etc)i am not even talking abt the camera buddy.ok n95, bank on gps but no touchscreen,Handwriting recognition,keypad,keyboard,business card scaner buddy these r the features you use daily. no need to fill in contacts just click and you are done. how many times are you going to get lost to use the gps?you can brag to your friends for some time after that it gets boring i was using the hp trust me.practically very seldom think abt it then o2 upcoming flame no keypad its hard to sms one handed. 990 is practally a phone even to carry around.every phone is lacking something or the other buddy 990 has it all and i am not a se fan i use to use the nokia 7650,6630 and 9300 and now i know how touchscreen makes the diff and to use one handed there is a keypad,jogdail come on how the hell did you get it thats its outdated i dont know.
Peter the video recorder is at 30fps in 3GP extension, but has MPEG-4 video encoding and AMR Sound Recording.

to the person who needed my opinion:
i already posted yesterday, i dont know why its not showing up. but anyways yes you can go back to the older firmware but its going to be tricky, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if u really want to do it badly, second it doesnt matter if you wait for the manufacture release or you do it your self. I know that for a fact, im not going to say why, because maybe that y they deleted my post. but yea if you have any other uestions jus hit me up.
