Mk200200, 29 Jul 2011Just got my NEO in the USA (ATT-Cingular)!! So far so good...Negri Elec.How much time the shipping takes?
Do you know if the shipping is to US only or WorldWide?
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2011arc and neo have same performance,differ only in tidbit software but not so muchBut neo have front facing camera for video call or for taking picture or use as mirror which arc does not have. I think comparing neo and arc, neo will be value for money. If not, just wait for a new SE phone that offers dual core and better camera and overall performances. Both Neo and Arc are great, but Neo win due to price versus specs wise.
Hell Boy, 01 Aug 2011For all those who don't really care about a fancy UI, please go for Nokia C7. Let me quickly s... moreyo hell boy, it looks like your specs are off. the neo also comes with an 8GB card, so total memory is 8Gb + 320 internal. And I doubt the C7 has an FM transmitter; FM receiver is more likely. And the headset that neo ships with has a FM receiver.
And FLV is supported. FLV is flash video format; last I checked, android 2.3 supports it.
You're also confusing ROM and internal memory. They are the same. Internal memory is just the ROM available to the user.
And as far as performance goes: 512MB ram vs 256 RAM. Boom. is this even a competition with that difference? The Neo destorys the C7 in terms of processor, RAM, and screen resolution.
Hey guys. I'm about to buy this phone, but before I do it, I'd like to ask a couple of questions for the onwners.
1)Is it possible to instal "SWYPE" text input on this phone?
2)Battery life is really that bed? for how long does it lasts with the phone in idle?
3)Its case seems to be a little fragile, do you guys think it is easy to scratch? any damage so far?
4)Had any kind of compatiblity trouble with any Android app? Since its screen is 854x480 res, and most of android screens are 800x480...
Thank you people!! ;)
hai all..i just need to know whether nimbuzz voip calls will work in this or not....pls reply me...thnx..........
Tekatero, 01 Aug 2011It's not fanciness, the correct word would be performance... And for most of us, its all that ... moreSymbian anna should correct that. And remember, the processor has been downclocked from 772mhz. If need be, you can overclock it. There's plenty of pages on the internet to help you do that. And it's not laggy while gaming or during video playback, broadcom's as good as adreno 205.

And for most of us, its all that matters ;)... Ive seen C7's performance, and is laggy as hell... Some ppl even say lag on Nokia phones (or any other brand for that matter) that use Symbian, is not actually lag, but the way the OS works... Well duhh!!
For all those who don't really care about a fancy UI, please go for Nokia C7. Let me quickly summarise why :
Nokia C7 vs Xperia Neo:
3.5" AMOLED 640x360 Gorilla Glass vs 3.7" Led backlit LCD 854x480, bravia engine.
680mhz processor with broadcom bcm2727 gpu vs 1ghz processor, adreno 205 gpu.
256mb ram, 1 gb rom vs 512mb ram, 380mb rom.
8gb +380mb internal memory vs 320mb internal memory.
NFC support vs not supported.
Bt 3.0 vs Bt 2.1.
Fm transmitter vs not present.
Penta band 10.2 mbps hsdpa vs dual band 7.2 mbps hsdpa.
Divx/Xvid/FLV support vs Not supported.
Video stabilization, smart video zoom hd 720p vs continuous autofocus hd 720p.
Dual led flash on 8mp fixed focus camera vs single led flash with autofocus 8mp camera.
Usb on the go vs hdmi port.
Now it's pretty obvious which one's the better phone, plus C7 comes cheaper and looks equally good. Sure, it lacks autofocus, but i'm not really the type who clicks text anyway. The image quality in good light is much better than the neo's, even better than the arc's, i can quote gsmarena on that:
On C7's page :
"With sharpness tuned down, photos turned out for the better so much so that we actually went ahead and shot a comparative shot with the XPERIA X10. The Nokia C7 is actually quite on par with the XPERIA X10 - except in closeup shots, of course where the fixed focus C7 loses by a wide margin."
On Arc's page:
"There’s plenty of fine detail in the XPERIA Arc shots (though surprisingly a bit lower compared to the X10) and the color rendering is good."
On Neo's page:
"The image quality is a mixed-bag. There’s enough of fine detail in the Xperia Neo shots, but it’s a lot lower of what we saw on the Arc’s images."
And as for video quality, C7 is far better, check the video compare tool on Gsmarena (try X7, C7 hasn't been added to that list, at least not the last time i checked).
Now, i've made my point. Sure, Symbian can't take on android in fanciness, but some of us don't really care.
Neo, 31 Jul 2011I need to buy neo. Can't understand why neo is cheaper than arc having the almost same specifi... moreArc has a bigger screan, and I think thats all... I cant wait when I get my Neo this week... ;-)
