If u are a music lover this phone is not the thing u might want to experience! no dedicate stop start button or next/prevoius or volume in keypadlock! also the OS is full of bug... camera and touch experience are good
what do u expect a good speaker from 12.5 mm n 97grm from it weight and dimension????it price only rm1300 how can it beat satio with price rm2000? thinking twice before u all posting here.u want a nice speaker with cheap price??
Hey can any1 whoz using vivaz tell me how to get the smileys in a msg...such an expensive phone and it doesnt even display d smileys in a msg??? d cheapest n d worst phone would have that atleast...plz reply some1
This is the worst phone ever. I have used iphone, balckberry, lg and other sony phones.
This phone is just so slow, it is not responsive at all. Touch is terrible too.
Don't recommend it
How can a suppose be a Top Electric Retailer like Sony,let such a good mobile down,only one speaker on the Vivaz an then not Stereo,its seem totally odd,as people like to speakers to listen to music on there mobiles but just recieve the Vivaz an now will be sending it because of the below par speakers an no Equaliser like the Satio,o.k playnow as the software for the equliser
Can u listen to recieved sms. I used a nokia where u could do this and thought it was cool and would like to know if this phone can do it

wee, 21 Apr 2010first i saw this phone and i really fall in love with it! I was planning to buy it.. but i wou... moreLOR..whats wrong with u dude! 3G is not = to having a front camera or what..3G is the data speed for u to surf in internet..it allows ur upload n download data more faster than 2G..aiyooo...learn more about technology dude!!!
I think the sound quality is actually really good, I havent had any static or any problems at all. You can also control the volume with the side rocker buttons, I did need to turn up the volume a little from the default factory settings, but after that it was more than loud enough. I believe there is only one speakerphone speaker however, which works fine for phone calls, but watching movies and playing games might require headphones in a noisy environment.
I forgot to mention, if you live in the US or Canada, make sure you get the U5a version not the U5i because thats the international version. only the U5a can use all the 3g+ bandwidths in America
I just got my SE Vivaz in the mail! and its awesome. :) The HD quality of the video is BETTER than my $300 point and shoot that does 720p also. And we're talking about a phone, thats rediculous. The pictures i've taken have also been excellent. The touch screen interface is very nice once you get used to using it, my last phone (nokia n82) wasnt a touch screen, so this took a day to get used to controlling it. But the extra large screen(compared to the N82) is fantastic to look at. Now i just need to get my data plan and start surfing the net :)
excellent phone,looks,touch screen,google maps,3.5mm headphone socket,proper usb charger,shame about the long winded nokia menus on a sony ericsson phone!!!my last phone c905,simple txt and media access.such a shame would be perfect phone.
Hi , i got E75 & having serious thoughts about changing it soon , but im confused about what to get & this are phones in my list
3)Sony Ericsson Vivaz
4)Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (i think it expensive)
I know allot of people will wonder why iPhone is not on the list , will simply because i have 16GB iPod touch (first edition\ 1st Gen.) & that kind of ruined iPhone for me plus the iPhone is way expansive in Saudi Arabia
The problem is last Motorola phone was released in Saudi Arabia is Aura & if im gonna pick Motorola i will have to get through my European connections & the issue of been locked or unlocked
So guys what do you think i should get ?
im thinking Vivaz or MileStone
Anonymous, 21 Apr 2010Maybe you have HD camera with 40 inch full HD display? :)I have a 32 inch HD ready tv, ie 720x1368 max resolution. Do you have a laptop or pc with a flatscreen as some of those can do 1080x1920 ie, full HD. My latop nearly does that too. If you want an HD camera you must have an HD tv.If not its like having a super car with wooden wheels.
I bought this phone one week ago and i'm confused about either selling it or keeping it :S
Very nice looking phone, i can use the phone with one hand very easily, the touch sensitivity is great, the video play is awesome, the screens colors are beautiful, very helpful five tab homescreen, and very pocket friendly .
But the speakers loudness is very low, the battery runs out very fast, i hear a voice during a phone call that comes and goes and it gets hot during a long phone call
i have this phone for 2 days now....ma view about this phone is that its not worth the price....the speaker sound is pathetic n not even average...and the voice that u hear on ur end during a call is also bad..its not clear even at full volume..and not at all user friendly..its very difficult to use as compared to nokia...very disappointed with Sony after using sony for last 4 years this is not at all an expected and worth piece
excuse my ignorance, but...does it have flash to watch video online (direct download)?
