the screen is small..with the size of the phone, SE could've fit in a 2.6"..touch screen phones should at least have a 2.6" display..
By Introducing low cost phone with operating system and seriously compromising on features like removing wifi and autofocus and big screen, Sony Ericsson is going the Nokia way, to flood market with phones which lack one thing or the another. We wish that SE sticks to its strategy and maintain seperate niche for the smartphones not diluting its bloodline. P series was awsum, no comparison at all!!
Hi guys at GSMArena. thanks for updating your preview and for clarifying things that made some discrepancies as well.\
one more thing G700/G900's camera LED flash can now be used as Torch, like in most SE non-smartphones i.e. W810,K750 etc. this is a features unseen on the earlier UIQ 3 products ;)
and of course G700/G900 based on whitepaper now incorporates Flash Lite v3(Flash version seen on N95 8Gb and N96) so we can now watch youtube movies on UIQ 3.
Thank you for updating the review and answering our questions.
Know the review is even better and fulfill :)
I find to like this phone more and more :)
Functions are nice, but this bar is so ugly and the menu interface... blah
The quality of photos are very acceptable, even more because is not final firmware. The sky is very blue and I hoping this is get with some setting for such condition, like I have in my DSLR.
@razec, what about the question I ask in the 8 post, is any of that in the white paper.
And two more question for gsm, although I doubt that they even read this:
Agree with some guys here that main menu is not so beautiful, so what about additional themes are they make any difference how icons and background on menu looks?
Is that a diode under the memory card slot and charger slot, and it is used just to signal low battery low or maybe some missed calls and messages ( hoping for that future at SE in the past few years) ?
one more thing, i find the XGA shot from G700 camera very sharp and clear. the colors are excellent as well. what do you guys think?
according to the G700 whitepaper the phone records at QVGA 30fps. ditto G900. i think the prototype issue has something to do with the framrate matter.
and for GSMArena the CPU is not a nexperia one used in W960 and P1. G700 and G900 uses a newer type of arm9 CPU which helps in encoding 5mp images and enabling wifi g mode. nexperia CPU does not allow more than 4mp images. while G900 has breached 5. and G700 shares the same hardware with G900. what the discrepancy?
Software on this handset is slow. Camera button takes very long to intialise the camera.
what will happen now to P1? or P series phones??
P series phones cost a lot compared to this phone.
but G series seems to have all the features of a P series phone and more at an affordable price! im confused now as to the new market portfolio of SE
wow, do you guys actually read things before you post it.
It may hav a 3mp camera, which is generally more then enough, but the fact it isnt a cybershot, takes nothing away from it. My W910 has a better shot then alot of Nokia phones.
I have played with the N95, and I would not take one if someone gave me it, and $$ as well.
The Image stabilizer IS a big thing, considering that it generates a BETTER PHOTO, and if it doesnt have 'Cybershot' on the phone does not mean its below any other handset, just the full capabilities arent there, but they arent there on the N95 or the N82 either!!
yea, better get the g900. i agree with you about the dual memory card like k850, should have keep the design. sony e, are you listening?
