This phone has just got out and already problems with it!!!!!
(I told you so! :(
But, even I astonished although I though SE could never surprise me (again).
I just can not comprehend SE pricing policy.
C902 for 600 USD!!!! ???
That is got to be a joke!
The G900 just came out for 550 USD. Current price is around 450 USD. Price dropped suddenly and keep coming down.
The unit has some problems and it does not live up to the expectations - like most recently released models.
The fact that the C902 is about 30% more expensive than the G900 is just do not make sense!!!!
The G900 has:
- a 2.4˝ screen (~45% larger than c902!!!!)
- more advanced software
SEs greediness the only explanation for me - SE tries to take advantage of uninformed customers until they can.
Probably, the price will drop significantly.
I would not be surpriced if in 6 weeks the price will be around 350 USD.
The phone got nothing special to offer - the screen is too small for anything but to make phone call. The camera is lousy.
Today´s market a slim phone without special features worth about 200-300 USD.
this is a very nice phone. i like it alot and i have confidence in sony ericsson phone is much more friendly user then nokia.
Although this is a 5 megapixel phone,picture quality is not up to standard.There is not much detail, and lacks of focus

It seems Samsung finally got it, got it all(?) :))
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2008SE are much better than Nokia. I ont have nothing against nokia but first i had a n73 and the ... moreaddendum to what you have said...
I have a n73 now so please don't take my comments as assumptions. The camera in the N73 is NOT good. Firstly, the camera takes six (SIX!) seconds to start up. (I have the latest firmware btw...) The pictures that come out tend to look artificial.(although i have to admit, they look good sometimes too) This is a hassle because I oftenly use my N73 to take pictures of specimens under the microscope, and because of this "color enhancement" the specimens look different...
I'm getting this one as soon as the price drops to acceptable levels. I hope this phone won't disappoint me as my current nokia N73 does...

Why not buy a lens protective sheet for the screen? I use one on my K850I and it works a treat....
For all those people who have bought this phone, here are my questions:
- Does this phone support Animated themes like the K series?
- What is the OS on this phone? An hybrid of the K series?
Got this fone on Saturday!
Great stuff. It came out the sametime as the N78 which feels very plastic.
THe c902 has a great metal and solid feel to it.
*Camera works great flash is very bright
*Menu wise feels a very very slight delay not sure why maybe is all the crap in the fone memory. Any advise peeps?
*Miss my play now button on the side (K800i user)
*Buttons on top and bottom of the screen is very responsive (In camera mode)
*Speakers is very loud and CLEAR!
Just purchased the phone. Very good. Very easy to use and very stylish. Camera is good, video good too. VERRRY loud and clear speaker to play music with too!
olie, 15 Jun 2008It pretends to be a high-end camera phone but the display is way too small with just 2". No Wi... moreI agree!!!!
Todays market a phone with a 2˝ screen over 250USD is a joke!!!!
The fact that SE asks for 600USD for this is just outrages.
I understand why they are so greedy, SE looses market share but this is not the way to get it back!
If this phone works fine it would be an okay for someone who do not need NET or almost never do text messages - for 200-250 USD.
But, for people who once in a while prefer to check email or send text messages need larger screen.
BTW, the 2.4˝increases the screen area 45% !!! but do not increase the phone size (length and width) (see g900 vs. C902)
This phone is dead before release!
It pretends to be a high-end camera phone but the display is way too small with just 2". No Wi-Fi means you can't quickly send your pictures to a blog or a server to share them with friends and family. Boring design.
I'ts a very beautyfull camera classic design and very good picture quality.
It don't have WiFi but it's not so bad for
an cybershoot phone.
Hey got this phone yesterday, and i think it is brilliant. clear calling, easy to use, amazing camera with clear defined pics and amazing zoom. I like that the lense of the camera is covered and the cover is sturdy. Only thing i am not fussed about is the touch screen keys, arent a big deal to me personally. Am a bit worried about the screen getting scratched so have bought a phone sock to protect it, as it is new it has no covered for its specific model so hope they will make one for it!
5* phone though in my opinion
