trevon, 07 Dec 2008any tips???? g705 or g810?
If you want decent pictures, you can go for Samsung G810... But its close to 2cm thick... And there are much better 5mp camera-phones.
G705 looks much much better. However you won't be taking 5mp pictures.
hans, 07 Dec 2008r u really not bored with the user interface of SE? its almost the same for every fone they made...Nope....
I've tried LG, Samsung, and Nokia themes and menus...
And SE by far have the most comfortable, and editable menus.
Samsungs' menu looks too cheap, LG is too unorganized, and Nokia is too complicated.

This must be one of the worst reviews I have seen a while ago.
GSM Arena please read this review and fix it.
The wording is TERRIBLE!
Then the logic is pretty messed up: 4-5 lines complaints about the music key:"The music knob is teensy tiny, rendering a proper press almost impossible" then under the photo is says: "The music key does well". Also what is the big deal about it anyway? Many SE phones has dedicated Music key and most of them are actually usable. Plus it is in the "Key Feature" list TWICE proving that this review was thrown together in a few minutes.
This phone is around 330USD on Ebay, minus the cash back and you have a half decent phone with a tiny music key, hidden mem.card, no auto focus, only 3mp, and no lens cover for around $230. This could have been a killer phone with the camera from the C902, a decent flash (hidden or w/cover) and with a memory card what you can reach without taking the phone apart. (Dumbest idea ever.)
For a hundred more you can get an N95 8GB. I admit it looks like a brick, or soap since the Nokia designers are no better than the SE lately and have no imagination in the last 2-3 yrs. However, other than the lack of lens cover and mem card it does circles around this so at the end it's a well invested $100 what will serve you for yrs, while it is questionable how long this will last…
u can hardly get any nice photo with it...
if they +autofocus...i"ll definitely buy this phone!!!^^
I have tried this phone (work for an operator) and it's definitely the best feature phone on the market. IMHO feature phones gives better user experience since everything is tied together nicely.
For the guy who was raving about everyone being a nokia fan and hateing Sony Ericsson! Your absoulty right i hate the very ground they make sony ericssons on i work for an irish telecommunications commpany and these have to be the most unreliable phones available i can honestly say the 2/3rds of all phones that come in for repair are sony ericsson their keypads are just S**T AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH it just boils my blood to even have to waste my time replying to your comment their crap get over it!
I wonder why Sony Ericsson just doesn't get the competition.
Same phone after the same.
One of a kind is the last thing to call Sony Ericsson G705 upon as much as a glimpse. But conceited scoffs may be bitterly regretted. Wi-Fi, GPS and lightning fast data are likely to turn the snooty sneer into...
Maaannnn, if it were only a smartphone!!!! i luv sony ericsson, but man, start making smartphones! listen, if SE would have symbian s60, dat would b d bomb 4 me. you dont have 2 agree, i simply express what is imho...
Nice features for a decent price I guess. But too bad the "bubble pattern" spoils the clean look of the device
Note to GSMarena:
The W705 does NOT have GPS, this is confirmed..:)
nick, 04 Dec 2008ok...but why wouldnt you just buy an N95 for the same price with twice as many features?About 40 Euros more expensive,
and much fatter in size.
What's the difference between G705 and W705 (other than cosmetics) ? Are there any tech differences? Will there be W705a for US? What's up with US always lagging behind?
