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.
Does this phone support third party applications (Software) for UIQ v3 phones
I dun think SE had say in any of her marketing material or website about having a Front Camera for Video Call. I do not think SE will cheat anyone on their product specs, its probably they buyer own assumption.
It is the buyer own responsibility to check what they are getting before paying for it. No one force them to buy it.
If that's doesnt work, some shop have 3 to 7 days return. What are you waiting for ???
And if u really want a front end camera for video, then dont buy this phone, simple.
Dont accuse SE/Nokia/Samsung/Motorola/LG/Apple, etc of cheating.
Crissy, 04 Nov 2008If u look on my previous post,its not about worrying if there's front camera,it's just to tell... moreDeon's post wasn't neccessarily directed at you - perhaps Deon was just doing the right thing and offering a potential solution...
carloud, 04 Nov 2008no
it seems you really dont have a 6233 dear sir...
thought you've changed...it seems ... moreI do have it, just dont use it anymore
but yes what i said to nick was before i upgraded the firmware.
now the video recording on it is as good it should be
Deon, 04 Nov 2008If you guys are worried about the lack of a secondary camera for vidoe calls, just stand in fr... moreIf u look on my previous post,its not about worrying if there's front camera,it's just to tell people that there's NO front camera...se cant be bothered about this but i think people should know cause if u read all below there's lots of people telling that there's front camera,even expert like dani thinks so...Not starting an argument or debate,just doing the right thing for people to know...Cheers!!!
