Hi everyone.The same thing happen with se w595 that has video call function but without front cam.People bought the phone thinking the small circle on top of screen is the front cam but its light sensor.They really felt disappointed n cheated after they bought it.Check out w595 user opinion section.Se should realize that current phone with video call function should come with front cam.For the record,i've emailed to se to highlight the problem.Hope to hear from them soon.
the monthly plan in melbourne for the SE c905 is FREE on the $49 plan
when do u rekon it will drop to $29 monthly FREE??
boyle, 05 Nov 2008i totally agree to ya that vga is the better standard compared to qvga . and also think that n... more"You just don't know how to use sony phones....."
I don't know if it's just my phone but honestly my sony ericsson is better when taking photos than other phones of my friends like N91, 5300 and N70.
nick, 04 Nov 2008thats just absolute rubbish. do none of you ever actually put videos on your computer from nig... moreGet a life Nick! I've been reading the comments here for some time as the C905 interests me but you keep reacting negatively like one "mstl" did on another SE phone (G900). Are you two hired by Nokia or what? If you don't like the Phone just stop bothering about it. Here are mostly SE fans, like the Nokia phone comments probably have a lot of Nokia lovers as readers. You can't convince many people, especially when you keep repeating yourself. Go away please..
Btw, I'm a Sony Ericsson fan, although I try to be as objective as possible. I just think this is an awesome phone and that's why I've ordered it. But when I receive the phone and it seems to have problems or failures I'll report that here as well. For now: can't wait to own and use one!
Every top mobile company (SE, Nokia, Samsung, LG, etc) will release 10MP phones. So I don't understand why people come here and tell that Nokia is gonna release 10mp phones. We know it..
C905 is the best camera phone in the market now. It has all the features but doesn't have an OS. Is it a problem? A matter of personal choice. It is not a problem for me. In fact, it is an advantage for me, because browsing and stability is much better without an OS.
If you wanna install lots and lots of new programs and use the phone as a computer, then go buy a phone with an actual OS. The features of this phone is more than enough for me and I really want the phone to be stable, so I will go with C905.
nick, 04 Nov 2008thats just absolute rubbish. do none of you ever actually put videos on your computer from nig... morei totally agree to ya that vga is the better standard compared to qvga . and also think that nokia is waitin and watchin to launch something 10 MP phone to shut the mouth of s e with better camera (remember the k850 the hyped camera phone and the 5 mp camera phone shootout) in my openion the n95 photographs were better than k850 even with having just led flash and s e coud add the features like slo mo wideo recording like 120 fps or more to add some goodie to this highly hyped and over prised device (it has a smmall display). s e is alive only because of some freak fans and those people who actually bought sony diital camera and handycams
just bought this phone. Not that satisfied. In my personal opinion, It should've been more compact and solid. I felt the design to big and clumsy. Keypads are not tactile, Camera cover is shaky. But other than those everything is as expected, not to mention about the camera. Guess I'll stick back to my w980 for its solid and compact design, actually w980 camera is so fine although it lacks of many camera abilities. The color imo wins the c905.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I totally agree with you.
People are different and so their wants too... You just can't expect 100% of all the people in the world to like samsung innovate or N96.
Shino03, 04 Nov 2008QVGA isn't bad at all atleast better than QCIF and the quality is also decent. When I compared... morethats just absolute rubbish. do none of you ever actually put videos on your computer from nights out? stop making excuses for SE's lack of effort.
VGA is better than QVGA.
640x480 vs 320x240. it is just better. 4x the resolution my darlings. get over it.
What more can I say...guys at GSMArena is very impressed with C905. People at SE deserves a tap on their shoulders.
QVGA isn't bad at all atleast better than QCIF and the quality is also decent. When I compared the video of C905 with the VGA video of other phones, I did find a hard time comparing the two. In conclusion, although VGA is 4x better in the spec sheet, in real life QVGA and VGA are almost the same when you compare it with the quality of videos taken by videocams.
nick, 04 Nov 2008thats a stupid comment, i mean obviously nokia's VGA is better than SE's QVGA. i mean the fact... moreYeah, but I don't post videos on youtube or other things like, and when I want to show the video to someone, why don't show the video from the device? It's more useful.
The "lens" looking thing near the speaker where SE usually put the video calling camera is just a light sensor to adjust the screens brightness depending on the ambient lighting.. Dunno why they took away the second camera tho - maybe its just being a slider there wasn't enough depth to fit it there :(
DANI, 04 Nov 2008nick, i am far superior than you because i am DANI. you have to settel for second best ALWAY... moreThe UK has had 3G for about 4 years now, and GPRS for even longer (obviously). No EDGE, but we don't need it when there's 3G. What country are you from, that it's so much more advanced than the UK? You seem to forget that hydro-electricity, the lightbulb, the television and the telephone were all British discoveries/inventions (along with penicillin, the steam engine and many more). What has your country offered the world? Stop making outlandish comments that you can't possibly back up...
crashing again! software issues! come on sony sort it out please!!!!!!!!
nick, 03 Nov 2008kids? im older than you mate and no i dont go round putting videos on youtube. i just think be... morenick,
i am far superior than you because i am DANI.
you have to settel for second best ALWAYS.
I think uk is not that advanced as compared to my country.
do you guys really have access to even most basic technology like edge,gprs,3g.......... i bet you dont have these .and still arguing with me you juniour
Chamon, 04 Nov 2008In some parts I agree with you. But the comercial intention of Sony Ericsson, is a truly real ... morethats a stupid comment, i mean obviously nokia's VGA is better than SE's QVGA. i mean the fact is there, the n95 for example takes in four times the detail when video recording.
1)dani, what do you expect? VGA will take up more memory, if that is an issue, turn the video down to QVGA?! having the VGA option is nice
2)yeah it sometimes stutters, but only on the nokia screen. on the computer it is fine. i think thats just the phone struggling to play it because its so massive!
i cant believe you are defending SE giving you an inferior spec sheet. they'll just keep doing it until you raise a voice
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2008I dun think SE had say in any of her marketing material or website about having a Front Camera... moreDo u really understand the situation?The main problem is that this phone comes with video call function n with the small circle on top of the screen which everyone assume a front cam but actually it's not,automatically people will think that's the front cam.And if u take your time n read few pages back,most of them who ask about this been told that there's a front cam.Maybe i'm wrong to say se is cheating but indirectly...yes.Marketing strategy?Give me a break man...se is fighting hard to stay in touch with leaders samsung n nokia.That's why i'm here to make it clear of all the confusion n till now i believe that many people still think that there's front cam.
