hi just got this phone a week ago. i wouldnt say it is chunky, it is actually almost identical in size to my old k800i. in fact its probably even slimmer due to the built in camera cover.
the wifi works brilliantly and hasnt dropped out for me once. the reception is far better than on my other phones. battery life once gps and wifi turned off is fine, about the same as the k800i maybe a little less.
camera is outstanding, more photo options and set ups than my old sony cybershot digital camera!!! and definitely better results.
my only gripe is that sometimes the camera cover activates the camera when touched but not opened (like when you are texting and you finger round the back of the phone touches it) very annoying but only very occasionally happens
hey guys 1stly, i wanna say tat just close ur eyes n buy ths phone...i've been using this phone for 4 weeks now,its really good phone...
IM IN LOVE WITH THIS C905 PHONE...
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2008Guys, I will be getting this cell soon, but I'm confused whether I should get the "silver" or ... moreI have the Black and I suggest you to take also the Black one. I had nefore Sony Ericcson wich was silver but getting to durty and scratch to easy.
Guys, I will be getting this cell soon, but I'm confused whether I should get the "silver" or the "black" one.. I need you openion please, as sometimes I feel that the silver one is very shinny that it looks "white", so is it true, or that is just the websites pics??
And no the phone doesn't have a secondary camera as mentioned here often before! But why would you use videocalling anyway? ;)
Sound of the device is amazing for a camera phone, much better as the K800i or K770i. It's loud but good.
Nav4all is free realtime navigation that should work in Australia too, I'd suggest you try it. You can't download TomTom on the phone as it doesn't have an OS, it can only support Java programmes.
in australia, is the gps software free to use with turn by turn nav..or can u d/l tomtom software ??
all i can say is the phone quite solid the sliding feel is good & when i go through the menu is so smooth but the oni thing is there are no secondary camera tat means there is no camera in front i really shock when i know is so dissapointing
do people wwh hac he C905 tink its chunky?? or thick?
and wat price in around is it????
im tied between 2 phones this and the w705! need help shr your opinions on which would be the best!!!
tried omnia, tried samsung i8510 then had the c905, best phone ever owned the camera is unbeliveable, the zoom is my party piece, if you want an easy to use camera phone for voice and text, then this is the 1.
had mine now for nearly 1 week and i'm loving it ! sat nav built in but cant seem to access it just yet, teething problems on my behalf i'm sure. i'm 36 you know.
Erik Strijbos, 12 Nov 2008I wont no is the screen made off plastic our glass?
Some say its made off scrath free glass. Its 'Mineral Glass'
you can scratch it with anything - nothing would happen to the glass!

how is the sound on this device??? is it loud as the W models???
I recieved my C905 today as well and I'm in love with the "little" fellow. It is in good shape, not too big or long like the i8510 and you'll get used to the weight. The key's are comfortable, only the front look a bit plastic. It works as the all the SE's I had before but this time the screen is bigger and better. And the phone seems even a bit faster, but perhaps the other phones need a software update or a clean memory :)
The GPS is fast (signal outside found in a few sec) and for free with Nav4all that works perfect with it. The internet browser is good but I prefer Opera Mini as that can open any site, while the browser sometimes says "site to large, can't open it". To my pleasant surprise it is possible to watch Youtube movies on the phone!
When you go to youtube it links you to the mobile version of it and when you open a movieclip it buffers and opens it in the Media Player! Really fast with HSDPA, in a few seconds I can see a decent quality movie in landscape or portair mode, half/wide-screen mostly (depends on the movie resolution), without lagging. Sound quality is great as well so if I ever get bored of my music I know what to do.
The camera is as great as expected and it really is nice to see that pictures with the strong(er?) Xenon Flash are not as dark as with the K800i for example, even just in auto mode. Normally I had to choose a scene and then hopefully the flash wouldn't all mess it up or I had to disable the flash and hold the phone steady. No this time the flash makes a brighter picture then ever possible without it. The face recognition works too, and I haven't tried the video recording yet.
One little tiny downside is the slow chess player, on advance mode. :p It's thinking long before not even making the best decisions. I'm used to another Java chess player that does all it moves in 1 secs. Need for Speed on the other hand works great with the accelrometer which isn't implemented in many ways. Just 2 directions (landscape and portrait) in the Media player, picture viewer and browser, like the K850i already had. Bit of a downside but on the other hand it works fine as it goes.
So for now I can't be more satisfied with my phone choice, as I was doubting on a lot of other phones. This one offers all the best of normale Java based Sony Ericsson's, plus some nice majority's other SE's don't have. I'd say go for it if you'd like to own a cool Sony.
Last thing: The persons I spoke to on the phone didn't notice any difference between the phone openslided or closed during the call.
i heard rumors that 3G only can use on the back camera... is it true??
can anyone witht the phone tell me??
i've waited for the phone for so long...
