today i found out why c901 takes yellowish pictures.
i figured out that when pictures are taken in darkness with xenon flash, there are no yellowish pictures, also when i take pictures without flash.
my solution is, do not turn on the xenon flash when there is medium amount of light.
i also used n73 b4 c510.n73 sound & pic. quality r more better then c510.in c510 i only like v.r.30fps,3g -hsdpa 3.6mbps and youtube(n73 has 3g only 384kbps-not hsdpa,v.r. 15fps).otherwise n73 is a great phone.
i have c510 already but not satisfy.so now i will go for nokia n79 because n series r great for sound and camera(both day & night). but i will think about c901 if it can take photo like k810i. so can anybody tell something about its pic. quality.
What is the speed of data transfer
a)from the pc to the phone?
b)from the phone to the pc?
Can you check this with file of at least 200Mb, please?
--> yeah the pictures are yellowish compared to n82..i shouldve bought n82..
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2010Are u sure its this phone and not the C902???? yeah,i had c902 b4 and that s the best fone ever i had..i regret trade in my c902 with c901...
this is a very bad se fone i ever had..quite dissapointed bout it..it always restart.recently,the battery n signal bars had gone..sometimes it cant start at all..i had to use a2uploader to install back the firmware to make it ok..but the problems still continuosly..
I wonder if any body knows .do I have to do updates to this phone or I can live with the software it already has?
Hey guys. If you've seen or better, used a Sony Ericsson C510, which would you choose C510 or C901? (Putting the camera performance aside). Your opinions would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2010suggest for you better you buy w902...., you will get 8gb m2,front camera and high resale value..i had w902 and i traded it for C901 because w902 is very laggy compared to c901 which has faster software and hardware. c901 loads pictures in media center faster. w902 loads images and music very slow.
i did not put any case yet in my c901 because i cannot find any. i am from manila, and i went to every phone store that i can find but they just dont sell c901 cases. and yes i do have scratches now in my c901 but i dont mind because i bought a camera phone not a fashion phone, so scratches are fine with me, and i think its normal for SE phones.
i still have the yellowish tint in pictures.
i already modded the camera driver via esato.com but i still have slight yellowish pictures, although after modding it, i noticed that the yellow tint is a bit lighter. so there is no solution to this problem yet, and i think the camera lens is the problem in this case, so we do not have a solution for this.
hi to all,
i'm juz bought it last week. so far, it is a really practical phone as i shift from other brands.
here are some of my observation & experience based on my days with c901:
-structure (casing & body) look perfect & tough.
-display look cool (256k colours) very bright.
-camera nice (lens covered) & do have xenon flash.
-keypad also good & i really like to press it.
-sound really impressive (treble,bass,vocal).
video call doesnt bothered me as i seldom use the conference call.
the only thing that bothered me is the battery, full charged will only last like 2days (WTH..) but most of my frens (SE HP owner) do have the same situation with me, so i take it as a normal,huhu..
juz wondering wether is there any c901 batt have capacity more than 950mAh? because i think more capacity will provide last longer...
Li-poly vs Li-on, which one is better?
emel me: email@example.com

BLINK, 17 Dec 2009this phone is excellent.
no lag in media center, very fast interface, EXCELLENT CAMERA, chat-... morehey blink. (and to other c901 users as well)
I just bought the phone like 2 weeks ago, and so far the color covering is still ok - no scratches yet.But yeah, comparing the c901's cover with my previous SE phones, the cover is somewhat "peelable" (has the tendency to be peeled easily)..
So before anything happens, i want to ask, where can we get that crystal casing? Is it already available in the market? i am from cebu...
Kim, 06 Jan 2010Hi guys, So I bought my C901 a month ago and out of nowhere it won't turn on anymore. When I ... moreHey Kim, im so sorry to hear about the problem with your phone. Have you brought it to a SE service office? They can take a look itno your phone and if its a product/company defect, im 100% sure they'll be glad to replace that. I had the same problem before with my c902 (prev phone) and they replaced it with a brand new one. SO dont worry.
