Had my C901 every since its release. My previous was the K800 which was also excellent. The only problems I have with the C901 (which were not experienced in the K800) are basically two. The first is that sometimes if I go in an underground parking where there is no signal and then come up again, the signal will remain dead. I try a new search for networks with no success. The only way is to switch the phone off and then on again in order to get the signal back. This started happening only last month (and sometimes only). The other problem is the camera image stability is not as good as the K800.

Jeve, 18 Dec 2009can any1 tell me if u can use the flash on this phone az a normal light 2 see in the dark?wito... moreyou can use the LED-flash as light source (but only in the video Mode) ...
but you can not use the Xenon-one
my phone is NOT the greenheart version...100% sure
and btw , my opinion regarding the painting quality for my last 3 SE-mobiles ... they are all sooo cheaply painted , as they last only for couple of weeks before the phone looks so miserable , and the original phone-covers are extremely expensive (3 or 4 times more than Nokias) (e.g my old w910i covers cost 150 dollars)
however , this mobile is among the Best of the best made by SE (surly excluding the Xperia series) for users who wants to get almost alot of multimedia in one thing ... a mobile with very stable software , fast and reliable , nice music player , very nice camera ,good battery for mid-users , internet and good 3G connectivity....
SE c901 is excellent quality, i bought it 5 days ago, it is a shame that is not dual sim as samsung c 5212!!!SE Make dual sim PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Had mine for 1+ month in black - paint is fine.
I do recomend a good screen protector ..
PS: Its 4 in 1,
A digital camera, a phone, media player, and email device.
The email facility is very very good on the C901 ... assuming you have data included in your tariff.

C901 has no lag at all (based on my experience. and im only using 2GB M2 card. so i dunno if 4gb-8gb M2 card will affect the speed of the phone's interface.)
buy C901. you will be satisfied. it's like your carrying 3 devices in one. a digital camera, a phone, and a media player.
btw, call quality is great in c901 compared to G900 specially in HSDPA. the speaker is very loud!! (well i modded my C901's speakers via Esato website so i made the speaker 2x louder.)
no other build quality issue than the hairline-scratch.
the paint being peeled off easily is a LIE. i've been using C901 for 3 months now and no paint has peeled-off yet 100%.
there is no "LIGHT" feature built-in in the C901.
Btw, as i have experienced, there is NO image stabilizer in C901. only video stabilizer.
Image stabilization on these phones is usually digital so its of not much use... Optical stabilization is what is important

jolyn, 13 Oct 2009May i know what is the quality of the pictures that some users had taken?? I read through the ... moreSony Ericsson specifications indicate the c901 camera has an image stabilizer as well as a video stabilizer. I have only had my c901 for about 3 weeks and have not taken very many photos yet, but what I have taken so far does not have any problems with shake or blur.
Are u Sure guys complaining about peeling paint may be its the green heart version which has the thin paint. I would imagine that would peel off easily
can any1 tell me if u can use the flash on this phone az a normal light 2 see in the dark?witout turnin the camera on?

BLINK, 17 Dec 2009this phone is excellent. no lag in media center, very fast interface, EXCELLENT CAMERA, chat-... moreGlad to hear that, been using a friends K850 and its very laggy and restarts all the way
this phone is excellent.
no lag in media center, very fast interface, EXCELLENT CAMERA, chat-like messaging is awesome like iphone, battery life is awesome (2-5 days depends on how often you use the xenon flash. xenon flash drains battery)
however, the phone's case gets hairline scratches easily, so whoever want to buy this phone, be sure to buy a silicon case.
Bono, 17 Dec 2009Dr.Mahmoud Adel - I have this phone and think the battery life is very good ... I get 2-3 days... morefine , but i can't attach the phone to the adapter every night ...
that's why having a phone with GOOD battery life does matter to me ...
i make almost 100-150 hours/month ... so getting a battery that drops so often isn't reliable option for me , keeping in mind my comparison with my old mobile w910 ...
this phone is very good (till now) after 1.5 month ...
but it's NOT for heavy users (regarding quality , as the paint get wiped off so fast -in comparison with nokia phones- , and its design is dust/dirt collector ) and the battery is NOT that superior (in my opinion) and i'm free to say what matters me regarding the phone (call me nut or crazy , it doesn't matter )...
this phone IS GOOD , but expect only what you'll pay for ....nothing more
and thanks for you advice , but buying another additional phone-battery is better option , than buying a car-battery ....
