The Sony Ericsson NEO's design is just sublime to hold it in your hands is like gently stroking on my Wifey's firm and fit booty!!! LOL.. Sooo for me d fne is absolute 10/10!!
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2011Freakazoid, I have to strongly agree with you on a couple of points.
>2) physical button... moreI absolutely and completely agree with you.
I find even 5 homescreens too many or should I put it - I would be satisfied with 3-4...
And another thing: Touch sensitive keys are the WORST thing phone manufacturers ever made. I can't imagine practical use for them and they must be just another fancy-schmancy sh*t they try to push down our throats last 4-5 years...
On many phones I used last years I find them unpractical to use and they also are trouble when you put cell phone in pocket and when you want to do something quickly...

freakazoid, 31 Mar 2011where is the NEO demo that is "buttery smooth"..? Thanks, bro, for the comments..... moreBTW, my Ace has 278 mb RAM (for User), and it lags. Believe me 380 mb of User RAM may not be enough..

Thanks, bro, for the comments.. but 380 ram is still kinda on the small side. Its a borderline number, to be honest -- it can lag or not lag. Safe number should be 500 mb USER memory or above.
The tiny SMS input box is still a main sticking point for me, coz I write long SMS, and it helps if I can READ it all before I send it :P SGS2 and the Galaxy Ace (which I own) are excellent for having thought of expanding the SMS input box to include the entire $%% screen!!
Anyways, Neo is one of the best contenders for VALUE FOR MONEY smartphone of 2011..Cheers.

freakazoid, 29 Mar 2011Neo is better than HTC desire S -- cheaper, higher 8mp camera, video autofocus, bigger battery... morefreakazoid ma man, let me clear things up here, for all of you.
1) the RAM is 512 MB, only USER AVAILABLE is 308 or sth ( the rest is PERMANENTLY reserved for GPU purposes) and you can increase that by clearing some unnecesarry stuff :P
2)physical buttons > touch buttons, for the same reason as some1 mentioned already. who cares if a thing looks good, but sucks in functionality ?
3) sms.. well i cant tell you much about that, srry
4)what ? small icons :X ? how come i never noticed that..
5) you can install a custom version of SE launcer with 7 homescreens np.. or use adw/LP and so on.. np.
and about all the lag you keep talking. have you seen vids of RETAIL FIRMWARE IN ACTION ? all the lag was cuz of pre-release software, nothing more. now its as smooth as butter.. literally !
check this out peeps:
the only real concern would be the low brightness of the screen...ill check that at a store tho and then decide
also swedroid has other vids of arc unboxing, u can see the UI smoothness there 2.
Can I use this phone for Skype calls?
Neo is the best!!
freakazoid, 29 Mar 2011I tried the N8 on the emax store, and the 12mp camera is not good.. when I take pic of the sal... morelol...
the N8 you tried is the phone that not fixed due to Amoled screen problem. that's why there is yellow dots.

>2) physical buttons. they are soo last years' look. SE >should Use touch-sensitive keys.
I absolutely HATE touch-sensitive keys. With a physical button you can press it without having to look down, and get good tactile feedback. If you care more about whatever this year's "look" is then go and buy a Samsung or LG. If you care about functionality then buy a Sony Ericsson.
>5) homescreen is just 5, not 7.
7 homescreens is justjust FAR too many. For a typical user it's hard enough remembering what you've put on 5 homescreens as it is, without having 7 of them!
asad, 29 Mar 2011specifications seem to be good but no match for nokia n8the n8 is a terrible device, it regularly messes up and runs a horrible OS ( symbian ) the Xperia Neo will be way WAY better. HTC's are EVEN BETTER

SE should cure it first. Otherwise, the Neo is a pretty good buy -- best all-around smartphone!
Please any one reply, when it will come to Saudi Arabia... I have been waiting for this for more than 2 months...
SE Neo and Pro :They have low memory, low Ram, no Dual-core....I would go for Motorola Atrix or LG Optimus 2X instead or even Samsung GS2.....it's not fair because they're very nice phones but with these features....and they got 9.2 voting result....c'mon.
