if you think about it...look at the name and the look of the phone...its quite similar to n95 right?
and the name...c905 which could basically mean n95 only replaced with a C and added a "0" hehehehe
and I wonder...how can some people dub it as "n series killer" when this phone pitted against the n95 only has bigger picture resolution which isnt even double the pixel count of the n95 wheras in video recording n95 does quadruple the amount that the c905 is able to produce...
and what does the c905 has that the n95 hasnt?
nothing aside from the bigger picture resolution
what does the n95 have that the c905 doesnt..
for starters it is a smartphone,has video card for ngage gaming,VGA video at 30fps, better LCD screen and more buttons and even infrared, better processor (since the c905 uses the same type of arm9 209mhz processor as the k850)
Im sorry I fail to see why does it have to be dubbed as an "n series killer"
that amount of hype alone can lead this phone to being an "epic fail"
why cant we just let this phone shine by its own instead of having to carry the burden of a huge hype surrounding it...kinda reminds me of kill zone for the ps2 against halo of the x box

But to tell you the truth i've had a 16m display(N95) and my k850(262k) and i'd prefer the k850 anyday.(except the size :( )
Nokia should begin improving the build of their future phones if they still want to be ahead of the competition. Because you know, there are a lot of great-looking, better built phones emerging in the market today. Nokia please, stop copying the design of N81 over and over and over and over again. The iPhone is nothing compared to N95 but yet it's even much desired by many. Why? Because it's one of a kind. It never copies, in fact, it's the one which is copied. Nokia is only good in putting more and more features and technologies in a single device, but the design and build is redundant, not amazing, not exciting.
I've always been a Nokia fan but I must admit I'm very much amazed by SE C905. It's too good to be true. C905 can beat some, if not all, high-end Nseries phones. The features are great and exciting. I like the silver C905 most. It looks so stunning and it looks expensive.
LOL! STILL QVGA @ 30FPS? The 3yearold W900i had that! Nice one SE! Old specs in a new phone. The only "new" thing in this "Camer phone" is the 8MP Camera unit, the rest are specs we have seen in the Nseries many times =D
The best, most feature-rich, complete Sony Ericsson phone so far. The features of this phone is like that of the Nseries. I'm glad SE has already moved on to the VGA 30fps video recording. The main selling point here is the first 8MP camera lens in a phone. Wifi b/g, HSDPA, GPS, Tv-out are very nice features in a non-smartphone. Beware Nokia Corporation. C905 could be the Nseries killer.
Video recording is QVGA ahahahhaahhaha no way, i don't believe it! Impossible in 2008-09 no VGA 30fps with a 8MP! I was thinking of buying this phone but now i change my mind!
I'm with you!
... Nokia N96 with xenon Flash will gona be my choice and probable before 6 months when C905 come.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2008This is phone is absolutely amazing!!!
But why SE only put 256k colours instead of 16m??
The human eye can only distinguish 256k colours, to increase it is only a marketing device.
To misquote the Simpsons, "Id like 2 pieces of card in canary, 4 in sunshine, 3 in gold and 6 in lemon"
"OK, that'll be 15 yellow"
i dont understand why sony ericsson camera phones are not using carl zeiss lens while sony cybershot digital camera do. SE, please explain.... it would be perfect if c905's lens is carl zeiss.... anyway, good job SE

Granting that this phone video capability is only at QVGA @30fps...the question... morenope, i completely don't hav a problem wd dat. in fact i feel sorry for u all avid SE fans.
apparently, d problem lies wd big time hard core SE fanatics claiming dat C905 records VGA 30 fps videos even in reality it can't and try to mislead people around.
"it is vga video not qvga video they listed it wrong mate"
dat's juz one example how a SE follower post wdout providing any links to prove C905 can do such.. n even say GSMarena has only made a mistake only blah blah
m sorry buddy, but fact is fact, u cannot change it. u rather live with it
Sony Ericsson C905 = is a high end and an ultra mega 8mp Cyber-shot cameraphone dat can only record QVGA (30 fps) videos
though i must say, great work on incorporating both xenon n LED plus wifi sony ericsson
constructive criticism - you got a problem with that?!
Whats the greed with large LCDs, this phone has already has the 2.4 one reaching the edges, it couldnt accomodate a bigger one. Even good snapshot cameras come with a 2.5 inch viewfinder, so i dont know why expect so much from a phone, its already breaking new grounds by having 8MP!!!!!!And its quality of constructio(as usual) will be milestones ahead of the competition:)
This is phone is absolutely amazing!!!
But why SE only put 256k colours instead of 16m??
SE Biggest Fan, 18 Jun 2008The spec are worng it is VGA 30Fps No QVGAno its correct the recording is QVGA @ 30 fps
it is listed on the white papers by SE themselves
Quite a cheated design from samsung , just look at the closed cell i bet you ll easily remember one and only viewty Grow up sony give something new
excuse me...the C905 design is over and above better that the plasticky N95. and that's a fact
