come on sony ericsson at least for once listen to your loyal fans and give us what we want as this is the time you need your loyal fans to be back with you.. even if you want us to use your proprietary jack make it compatible with the rest of your products like sony Walkman and the rest since people who have all the sony products it will be very useful for them as they dont have to carry extra wire for walkman player or cybershot camera etc.. if you dont want to use universal chargers atleast make it compatible in your product line.. and for gods sake put 3.5mm jack in your phone.. i love sony and sony ericsson but you need to understand if we support you by buying your products you also have to support us and every company knows that you can be no.1 but they are laughing at the way you are right now because inside they are glad that you are being rigid and they are learning by your mistakes.. come on SE i want you to be no.1 and shut every1s mouth once and for all.. you were the best and you are still the best.. SE RULES!
S E has to pass through hard times as all others at least it will recuperate soon than all others since the quality of their phones and their features are unbeatable, outrageous and extremely efficient. The Global recession has shaded enough on all market segments and definitely had got its own on the Mobiles segment in Egypt, now i feel all markets started to boom up again so everything will get back soon as it would have been before.
SE when they brought out K800i or K750i or W880i where the best of there range!! rarely a fauly and everyone loved it!! I still have a K800I!! amazing still working. Then...when all other manufactures moved forward, SE kept renewing there walkman range and cybershot range (which got poorer and poorer quality) they broke, repairs where unbelieveable with SE) SE needs to step up there game plan and bring out something thats gonna make people talk about them again!! or they'll end up like Motorola!! down the drain
I would like to see sonyericsson succeed. i've been a user since the early 90's but their phones have been suffering from quality issues to me, the last phone that i'd rate high on quality would be the k750i and the early walkman phones like the w800, w810 and w900. the rest of the walkman phones that followed are lousy (except for the w200 which had better build than the w580) in terms of build, durability and even sound quality.
If i were sonyericsson, i'd try to find out FROM THE CUSTOMERS THEMSELVES why they haven't gotten past nokia in market share. then again, i get the feeling that they don't really care that much. i've raised these issues with no less than messrs komiyama and runevad, but my emails have so far been ignored.
I used to be a die-hard fan of SE phones, particularly because of the excellent camera quality they provided. But when I needed a business phone, SE had no worthwhile model. I think their business strategists have got their math wrong by concentrating only on the entertainment-heavy models, and ignoring the serious business users. That's a major cause of their downslide. The only model is Experia, which is way too expensive for the average user.
Nokia on the other hand has read the market tight by introducing a variety of cameras aimed at a serious Business users and Entertainment niche. The results are obvious..
Just bring the smartphone with the BlackBerry form factor with touschscreen. that all counsumer want right now.. or SE will be history.
Agree with the comments about the T68 and P900. Those were SE glory days, when their devices were cutting edge and very aesthetically pleasing.
Nowdays they release phones that all look the same.
My experience is one of appalling build quality and ergonomics, with my C702. I could barely send a text on that phone it was so badly designed.
The SE interface is awful as well. As said on here they need a simple Symbian alternative. Too many graphic and hideous wallpapers atm and themes. Could do with much improvement.
SE devices in 2007&2008 are very bad but i think sony is very big and will go up
because they could and can make such good devices like p990 w800 k800 w995 satio aino x1 x2 racheal
the s.e. phone i loved years ago - w850 loved it / but later on
why i started to hate s.e. - i brought the k850 / c902 / w580 - i hated em all the reasons shown below -
w580 - one of the most failed mobiles sudden restarts crashups signal problems key pad cracking problems eventhough ur not a hardcore texter , s.e. still unbale to find proper solutions for those problems . w580s got returned in high numbers to mobile stores in my country .
k850i - one of the best camera phones ive ever had , but later on after two months of usage it started to give sudden restarts with its firmware , u fill up the memory card space with music it gets slow . and after a few months of usage the touch buttons started to work improperly its like u dont even have to touch em to work . low music quality eventhough it says it got mega bass .
c902 - same cam as k850i after years of me using the first s.e. phone , things havent changed in a bit . just few options here and there increased . i got bored with it too quickly .
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2009new phones dont support divx, this is big disadvantage. we 'll see .with nokia s60 it always supports divx if u install the divx mobile player for s60 . its free and easy . but its hard to find a 3rd party divx player for s.e. firmwares shame .
It's a stupid thing to say Sony Ericsson has the best build, I worked for ATT mobile warranty and Sony Ericsson has the highest number of defects, thus so many customers are returning and comlaining about them. Plastics seem cheaper and the paint goes off real quick.
I love SONY ERICSSON but I hate their new ideas,
They are too late...
K750i is excellent phone and it's far better than 6680.
now, N95 is better than k850i and N86 is better than w995.
Satio is still under Development but N97 is now available in the markets.
Why SONY ERICSSON???
Sony needs to start making phones with webos. That's gonna be the future OS of smart phones.
Sony-Erisson phones by far the better built, quality phones, more often than not, than most if not all other manufacturer's devices. May have fewer features crammed into it than say ones from Nokia, but definitely better materials. Some opt for the gadgets; I go for reliability, build quality, overall feel and aesthetics. My W910i really my best phone to date, because it does exactly for what my needs are. Brilliant design in so many respects! (I should know - I’m a professional architect). I would say: To each his own; diversity is good; competition is good, because monopoly is like communism - only good for those in control, never for us ordinary people out there in the real world. May they all prosper and keep on getting better!!!!!
I want surviveing SE
work on designs such as xperia and idou to hit the market
i like sony ericsson but when nokia released the n97 nothing stood next to it. it's perfectly amazing phone
new phones dont support divx, this is big disadvantage. we 'll see .
If Sony Ericsson need to pick up business, they must make changes over prices on their products. Few good old mobiles are still selling with high rates. Newer ones with any extra features is costing too high. They must be aware, that other brands like, for Eg: Nokia, Samsung & LG, they have heavy loaded varieties and features, which also cost a decent price. Sony Ericsson has just recently updated the video recording upto 30 fps, before that they were just busy caching flies. They are still lacking with better battery, still missing divx players, hardly few phones have 16 million colors or oled display, some phones still lack good external sounds and most of them all, the materials used to make the phone is still un-reliable.
Yes I know they make one of the best designs, and the still camera takes really awesome pictures, but if they need to get closely to perfection, they must fulfill the missing stuffs. I have used most of the Sony Ericsson phones, so I can realize.
If they soon or later fill the gaps, I am sure they will the best mobile manufacturers.
If possible, please pass this on to Sony Ericsson..
Thanks.. Best wishes.
