I got this phone on Saterday and so far its as good as it can get. Camera quality is great, high speed camera is just fantastic and un-heared of on a mobile phone! The touch screen isn't really that sensative, nothing compared to the iPhone or the iPod Touch screens, but still usable. I wouldn't reccomend this phone for texters due to the touch screen, but for camera and music this phone is great! Oh yeah, and for calling, has a really good loudspeaker aswell which is good for in the car. Orange have a docking station for the car thats only £15 so thats worth getting aswell.
OVERALL : 8/10

Jdmoto, don't At&t run on 850 and isn't the viewty triband? Are you able to browse webpages with no problems? Also, as you were on the phone with at&t did the techs mention the viewty was only triband and you may have problems with service? Thanks, billy
finally got mine yesterday, it is charging right now, it's not as expensive as I thought it would be, only $4280 HKD
Well i just got the phone in the US. Im using it under the ATT carrier. Pretty much i give it a 9.5/10. the shutter press to shutter release isn't as fast as the K-series SE phones. I can deal with that though. The best part is I got the fully unlocked phone. which means.
-google links: search,gmail,youtube,blogger,maps
-space commando game.
Took me about a day to setup the internet & mms, but I got it setup for the ATT service. So the phone is 100% fuctional. I just wish we had the UTMS 2100.
Sorry i forgot to ask is the card you were using a microSDHC (high capacity) or a standard microSD 6gig? Thanks.
RDS display depends on if the radio station has that feature, its extra data transferred along with the normal sound data which can show anything from song/singer name to radio station. so if you are not getting anything its prob because the station doesnt support it.
i just recived the fone yday and it comes with a lil black pen. but i read up about the fone and it didnt say anything about a pen. this fone is so attrative and easy 2 use 10/10
To the last reviewer if you're still there ;-) even though you are on O2: would you mind checking what messaging languages you can find on your phone? Would really appreciate it! Cheers,
To answer some Q's
I have one from 02, got it yesterday
So far battery is excellent, been using it heavily for over a day now and only lost 1 bar
loudspeaker is LOUD
Yes you can minimise the music player (multitask)and carry on doing other things like texting with music playing.
Haven't tried the headphones yet, wouldnt swap my ipod though.
Camera is very very good
Call quality is good
Touch screen not perfect but very useable (I have huge hands/fingers)
Only 1 game DEMO on this 02 phone, I dont use phoen games anyway so no biggy for me
Annoying thing is the camera shutter sound not being able to turn off though, but that's law apparently.
We are doomed, the highest tier technical support at t-mobile usa have absolutely no clue as to what they are doing but can you blame them-a brand new foreign phone-how could they have the settings? My only question is can we return the phone? i'll just get the se850i
Many reviewers, including gsmarena, say this phone has a "radio with RDS". I got my Viewty yesterday, and it dispays NO information about the radio stations. How this RDS work? There is an icon showing a building with the text togling ON/OFF as you press. I dont know its purpose. I found this link showing somthing like radio data. http://www.diskusjon.no/index.php?showtopic=796323&s=amobil.no)
Dont know how they managed to get it.
Im thinking about getting this phone for Christmas,can somebody tell me..is it a loud phone,music wise and also is it better than LG Prada?
a question for all those who own this fab looking handset i am doing research on this handset.. what is your battery standby like ...
Could any of you UK owners (preferably on Three network) look up for me what languages you can set in messaging? Went into the Three shop yesterday, and only found English and Italian in the messaging options. But it was only a demo phone, so I'm hoping that German would be in there? I completely forgot to look into the owner's manual. Thanks for your help.
in this video it shows that you can tap on a section of the screen while taking a picture and it will auto focus on that. is this true
are you able to minimize functions like on sony ericsson phones?
does this phone feature a music player function?
can you minimize this function to perhaps...text message but still have the music playing?
are you able to watch videos uploaded from your computer on this phone?
for example..if i upload an episode of Heroes onto my phone, will i be able to watch it wherever i go? (on the phone)
