I have k810i...nice phone..nice sound but the best camera camera phone ever seen,still photos are so clear of sharp even take nice picture with shaking hand n73 cant do with carl zies lens....
Google Maps for Sony Ericsson
how do you mean that SE have removed c901 from their wbsite?
here is green heart
Old problem in 3G internet is back with C901. The internet connection is very slow when I used the phone as a modem. It's the phone, not the network that has the problem. C510 was fast(after the update) unlike in C901 where the pages hardly loads at all. I'll be using the 3G internet quite often and I already sold my C510.
Any one know if an update is coming?
Rumors were that Sony Ericsson stopped production of this phone. They already removed C901 from their website even the Greenheart version.
just got this phone yesterday to replace my K800. This phone is half the width which is a plus for putting it in my pocket. great camers being a cybershot and the speaker is extremely loud which i like. All in all I think this phone is great for what it is supposed to do.

Tania, 18 Apr 2010why is this phone so difficult to find? Any major problems? I heard some rumors Yeah Major Problems... I must have been unlucky but I bought this as a replacement for my aging k850. The first phone would not take pictures so I took it back. The second replacement kept switching off and after a week simply switched off and stayed off. The third replacement kept losing the sim card. Took it back and got a refund rather than get a fourth. Quite disappointed and I would recommend caution in parting your hard earned cash on this attractive but unreliable phone.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2010Every SE user must know about A2UPLOADER (and so lets Mod your handset likes u needs) A2uploader? I've been using it since my 2nd SE phone (G502). And C901 is my fourth one. I dare not mod it because I can't create a backup of the FS. The ones available in the net might be from a different region. A2 can't read CID53 Red DB3210. I'm waiting for an official update.
Is that C901 sell at Malaysia??i wan to buy...but the dealer say it been stop produce...T.t

Well, 7 posts in one sitting! LOL. That was many. 8 if you include this one. Maybe I should start my own forum entitled: "How C901 should be."
Seriously, I really need help on the loudspeaker and video.
Good night everyone!
Jose Eduardo, 19 Apr 2010I have had this cell phone since July 2009. I have made some videos so you can check them. G... moreJust seen your c901 video sample. The video quality is poor like mine. How come c510 which only has a 3.2 mp camera produces better videos than c901? Maybe Sony Ericsson should answer that.
Tania, 18 Apr 2010why is this phone so difficult to find? Any major problems? I heard some rumors Rumors? Like what? I was wondering too. Maybe it's the very high SAR value. It's a microwave oven of a phone. Or maybe SE trying to drive the prices up. High demand + low supply = high price. Any other theories?
Imu, 22 Apr 2010Plz anybody tell me abt da xnon flash.is it better thn n82 or not?People said N82 has stronger flash. Well, if you don't mind carrying a brick....... LOL. (No offense. Just stating the obvious).
Seriously, C901 sure looks better than N92.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2010i really like the features of this phone and having read the reviews here it's really tempting... moreIf your keen on viewing office documents, better go for a phone with a bigger screen. C901 only got 2.2" but if that's enough for you, it also has a nice music player (through headset), fast internet (Opera mini recommended), and I don't know any Java document viewer. You can google it.
BTW GSMArena, your Yahoo ad kept on dropping down whenever my mouse hovers above it. I keep on closing it and sometimes impossible to do since the ct-miami.com ad is blocking the Close button. It gets annoying sometimes you know.
This is my 4th Sony Ericcson phone. I'm a big SE fan.
C901 was an upgrade, and here's what I was expecting:
A good display.
A nice music player and loudspeaker.
A good camera for still photos and videos.
A good battery.
Better build quality.
And good call quality/signal reception.
And here's what i get:
Yellowish display. Blues are pale and lackluster. Whites always have this yellow tinge. I was kind of expecting it before i bought the phone but actually seeing it is a different story. I guess it all boils down to personal taste. Others find the display good.
The battery is good. Or maybe I just didn't notice that it isn't since C510's isn't that spectacular either.
The build quality is a mixed bag. Not sure whether the screen is scrath-resistant or not. But I believe it's not. The phone feels solid and no creaks but scratches easily, particularly the battery cover, and again the paintwork on the sides. Do SE have to paint their phones? As a small consolation, they use a black plastic this time unlike C510 where it's white.
No regrets on the call quality. No problems there. Only the 3G signal that drops off suddenly.
The music player is nice. But the loudsdpeaker is a disappointment. C510 loudspeaker is way better than C901's. Hardware-wise, C901 got a bigger speaker but why the poor sound confuses me.
And lastly the camera. No doubt the phone really produces nice still photos. But the skintones a bit off on portrait shots. It looked too smooth and has this "photoshopped" look. And 4 of 5 pics I took at night (with xenon) have this white circles/orbs that simply ruins the picture. I hope updates will fixed this. But the biggest surprise was the video recording. It's bad. No good. Too much artifacts and reminded me of the outdated 3GP format videos. What's SE trying to prove here? It looked like it's being compressed to the smallest possible file size. Saving memory space should be out of the question.
Sometimes a person just got fed up with SE's way of differentiating their products. It's confusing and doesn't follow any logic. Dropping the video-call camera is acceptable, but poor video recording and loudspeaker? It's very exasperating knowing full well C901 could do better.
My main concern right now is the loudspeaker. Anyone can help me? Google was not very helpful. :-)
