AnonD-3713, 12 May 2011SE leads when the competition got Multi-core CPUs and AMOLED screens? I'm sorry but SE is prob... moreof course SE lead, most of the guys here they say "why bother buying Neo i can get i9000 it's much better and smoother" well i have news for you i9000 is only 1GHz old AMOLED screen not to mention the lack of camera flash for god sake you call this high end phone, also Samsung lack of invention they can't create anything new they just copy others ideas and designs just like the i9000 iPhone copycat at least SE can come up with something new look at Xperia X10 it's one of the best Android phones out there and has wonderful design and now the Arc joined the Family also Xperia Play new ideas SE are pushing to the Market SE inspire others and i don't expect you to understand some people they just want to buy the heat of the moment regardless of it's history and what it's stand for and i can't blame them no one can control the market forever look at Nokia for god sake
SE lead others follow
AnonD-3713, 12 May 2011Really? Check out the phone page on GSMArena, maybe you should tell them to correct the mistak... morewhat? you must be smoking or something. with its pricetag, Neo worth every penny. beautiful design, excellent camera, gingerbread, bravia, etc. i bet you are "high number" fan LOL
Anonymous, 12 May 2011It actually costs about 350 euros...Really? Check out the phone page on GSMArena, maybe you should tell them to correct the mistake.
Also, even if it was 350 EUR, it's is too much for this phone, it got simply nothing that stand out from the competition.
AnonD-733, 12 May 2011well for the others brands this is high end phone but for SE it;s mid-range phone that's wh... moreSE leads when the competition got Multi-core CPUs and AMOLED screens? I'm sorry but SE is probably the worst company in the Android realm, the only thing that is good about their phones is design.
Anonymous, 11 May 2011"Midrange"? Are you kidding me?
This phone costs 450 EUR, it's even more expensive ... morewell for the others brands this is high end phone but for SE it;s mid-range phone
that's why SE lead the others just follow
Ahmed, 11 May 2011The camera is great in photo and video comparison tool and better than Arc
GSMarena review sa... more"Midrange"? Are you kidding me?
This phone costs 450 EUR, it's even more expensive than Optimus 2x and Galaxy S.
I think that GSMArena point got sense.
The camera is great in photo and video comparison tool and better than Arc
GSMarena review say's that the camera is average, why?
even the samples are great too.
This phone doesn't have full HD video recording and dual core processor
no need for this features in mid range phone
This phone simply is the best in it's class
After reading the whole review, everything in the phone is good but i would still like to see telephony on every android model(smartphone) which sony develops as it is a handy and a very useful feature.
See it like it try it love it....
See design be difference with the other..
unfortunately when arrive to my country, Indonesia..
... noone even needs 1080p video - it's overkill that offers little visual difference to 720p, just excessively large video files. ... not to mention that 1080p video kills my laptop!
I'd rather have tweaked camcorder-quality 720p any day, than entering yet another stupid "Megapixel race" that's nothing but marketing BS.
I'm really interest in this phone, Camera is important for me, GSMarena said yhat the camera is average but when I take a look on image comparison, it even slightly better than Arc in some area... Im confused
abhi, 11 May 2011Two compeletely weird things in Xperia Neo's review ->
1. Camera quality is a mixed bag(b... moreIm confused. As the preview mentioned that the camera is great. And now the review said that it is not?
Need to find another site for a review to compensate.
The preview has great results and the review is so so? Hmmmm
just get a second hand N1, the only diff is the camera, and you can bet you will always be the first to get OS updates.
Main Disadvantages according to GSM Arena
>Competition have Dual Cores and 1080p HD recording
but Neo is not competing in Dualcore Phones right? this is just a Mid Range All rounder phone >_
I think the review (and others) omits one very crucial thing about the physical dimensions:
ONE HAND OPERABILITY!
This ought to be on the list of "Key features".
(and similar for larger screens the lack of it on the "Main disadvantages")
It is as if gsmarena thinks bigger are just better... It's not!
For all of us not having monkey-hands and 4" thumbs, well then 3.7" is on the limit of what is one hand operable.
Try tacking one on your favourites with a 4.3" screen in one hand and try to touch all four corners...
And If you switch to landscape, even 3.7" is uncomfortable with one hand...
(This is EXACTLY why apply increase the ppi, but stay down at 3.5")
And YES I can hear people complaining about not being able to touch the exact position on a high ppi-screen. Well this is why Gingerbread improved the Text selection as described in the review.
is Neo capable of performing 3G video call?
if not, then better buy Samsung i9003 Galaxy SL.
Anonymous, 11 May 2011Agreed, it would've been better if it was "Vivaz with Android".totally agree with you, Vivaz shoot in HD too, they must rename the Title to Vivaz in Android
Anonymous, 10 May 2011I'm the only one who didn't understand the review title? The original Vivaz also shots HD videos.Agreed, it would've been better if it was "Vivaz with Android".
