philm, 12 Nov 2010 SO what it does the job it does not matter about what screen it has it will work this winter ... moreA reply to ur comment, i disagree with ur opinion of thinking that only geeks visit this website. I'm actually thinking of buying the Vivaz Pro phone but I'm not willing to spend my money on a phone i know nothing about. Therefore, i started looking for websites that offer a specification concerning this phone so that i wont seem stupid after buying it. :)
Also, it's not necessary to wear gloves when using a phone that has a resistive screen. My sister has the N5800, it's a resistive touch-screen and works fine with human fingers. The difference between resistive and capacitive screens is that capacitive is a new and improved (better) version of touch-screens.
new update sony ericsson be updating vivaz to symbian^3 ? currently the symbian s60 v5 is a total **** for touch use.
Petro, 11 Nov 2010I think s/he means "of". BUT this is an excellent phone! have you tried it dear
dean, 14 Nov 2010vivaz pro has any problem?pls answer bcoz im going to buy 1dont buy it, imagin that a 4 minutes call causes the phone to heatup and freez!!!!!
the only honest thing about the reviews of this phone is its camera, the video shots i had using it are the best, but nothing else is good in this phone.
can this unit go online using its integrated wifi especially in areas where there are unsecured wifi connection (hotspots)??? can its gps really work like the google map directing your input address?hope someone answers this. thanks so much!
Any idea when i will be able to access the ovi store on the vivaz pro or is there another place to get free apps? please could somebody let me know. The ovi store can't even let me know.
All - I got my S.E. Vivaz Pro on Friday. It is a HUGE disappointment: It is not 'fully blown' S60 with the relevant advantages associated with it e.g. in the Nokia sense, and it is not fully blown S.E. either. (So in the end it is neither the one nor the other, leaving you in the middle with NOT MUCH) Inconsistent UI all over . Lack of apps. Open office restrictions. Can't use OVI store. It is a pain to have the camera flash either OFF or ON, etc etc etc.
SONY, HOW COULD YOU PUT SUCH A HALF BAKED PRODUCT ON THE MARKET? :( Last S.E. for me.

i didnt get any free leather case in the box when i bought this phone, but anyway till now, i found this phone ok, maybe in terms of spec wise, the OS is outdated, but the rest of the stuff are quite ok, just that the start up time is kind of slow.
can anyone tell me where can i download the some free games into this phone? thks
1- Can we change VivazPro or Vivaz to symbian 3?(Plz say)
2- how can we port the Nokia N8 games too Vivaz?(like NFS Shift or Uno with their great quality!)
thanX a lot!
Hi. I want to ask if there are custom made leather/rubber casings sold for Vivaz Pro? Just for protection purposes...Thanks
Bro, you need to learn how to use a full stop. It looks like this "." The button can be found at the bottom of a keyboard.

So since winters nearly hear it will be more productive and thats what smartfones are for to make life easier and do their job..If you dont like it buy any other fone.
Anyhow look at i-phone sales and how good that is and then look at gsmarenas score,its only a bit of fun only 200 people regularly visit gsmarena and none of my mates use it,in fact 99.9% of population buy a fone and just talk and text and never go near a site,they just buy it in shop based on looks and colour its only pure hardcore smarfone mobile geeks on this forum.
I do know some people in real life with a smartfone but they live 20 minutes away so smartfone ownership and people who go out to buy one is still pretty low..
i dont get it. how is this rated so high? the specs are just terrible. i mean it has a resistive screen!!
I put everything on memory card and clear cache in web browser all the time..
This is the main dis-advantages by gsm arena and i will explain how its not a deal breaker..
•Camera downgraded from 8MP on the regular Vivaz
•No camera lens protection
•The S60 5th edition UI isn't the best in usability
•No auto locking of the screen during a call
•No DivX or XviD support out-of-the-box
•No smart or voice dialing
•No secondary videocalling camera
One thing is 5MP is perfectly enuf for a good 7x5 inch picture and since 1980 i only ever got my holiday snaps 6x4 inch so its really fine camera and on mt 15.4 inch laptop...
No camera lens protection is on nearly every camera fone bar a few nokia n-series and a quick wipe with something before taking an important foto is a no brainer anyway.
I am fine with 5th edtion,just a small learning curve and its packed with features and customisation.Plus a good few years of apps from symbian freeware google search.
No locking of fone during call has not caused me one problem plus as its resistive so itsd quite hard to achive..
No divx etc? well you can get paid app and since all my last fones since 1998 and since 2003 when video record was available my captured videos are al .mp4/mpeg4 and .3gp so fine..
No smart dialling or voice dialling? i dont know anyone who uses these items ,i mean in a modest noise enviroment voice activated anything is useless..
No secondary camera?well ive used it twice since my first 3g fone the moto A385 as a test and gimmick, i dont know anyone who uses it but if you do then get another mobile is my answer.I know some peole who use it as a mirror but surely just take a foto of yourself will do the trick..
The vivaz pro is the only 720p keyboarded symbian smartfone untill nokia E7 comes out,BUT,not the only 720p keyboard fone now desireZ been launched ,BUT,htc have poor video/speakers/mics and generally poor cameras so vivaz wins..
Please feel free to comment i am not promoting this as the best device ever but its so powerfull and weighs nothing in the hand,when i was avid n86 user (sold it may)it ached my arm holding it for videoin/texting etc..
