i m a sony fan but this phones battery really sucks.i used p800 w810 w 580 all was long battery life and excellent sound quality.i know this is cybershot model but that doesnt mean sound should be that much bad.and sony phones menu speed sucks also it s so slow.i remember my p800 battery takes 1 week to die.And most of the sony products` softwares doesnt work properly(mp3 players ,computers,digital camers etc.)so i began to loose my trust to sony brand.
savy, 20 Jan 2010hey its not the bubble its the dust in front of the cam when u clicked a pic Derek - Erm, it depends on hw u use ur C905, it probably bcuz u didn shift to battery saver mode or lowering the screen lightness, or u use it to take pic with flash or videocaming, if none of above u hav done, then must be smtg wrong wit the battery, haha since mine for normal use( include taking pic not longer than 30minutes, sms, calling, it still remain 80% at night or perhaps 70%
SAvy- yeah i thought the same way as u thought last time, but even if i clean the lens, it still appears, may be im taking a pic in a dusty area which the flash reflects those fying dust causing bubbles everywher on the pic, or may be smtg wrong with my C905
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2010I bought my C905 in nov 2008, the first week, The buttons gone wrong kinda stuck inside, i sen... morehey its not the bubble its the dust in front of the cam when u clicked a pic
i have recently bought this model...i am experiencing very low battery low life..1 had to charge it almost everyday...is it normal or ther eis something wrong?
I bought my C905 in nov 2008, the first week, The buttons gone wrong kinda stuck inside, i sent it for warranty, it took me 3 weeks more to get bck my hp, the day i got my C905 bck and went study far from my hometown, I realized the C905 cannot be charged, I doubted could it be the AP warrantier had taken some original component inside and gave me bck some faulty one or perhaps the hp shops was the one who commited this act, O?Kay i sent back to warranty and it took me a total of 3 months !!!! which it freaked me out and i had not been using it for 3 months...!!!!!! probably enough time to make my C905 out of trend!!!
The time i collected bck my C905, i found out the camera button is stained as i knw it is built in chrome and shud be stainless right(blame the warrantier or the hp shopkeep again)...ARRRGggghhhhh
Nw i hav to change the ribbon which cost me RM 180
And i would like to ask those who r using C905, When u r takin pic in the dark situation using Xenon flash, Do u find ur pic with some light reflecting bubbles appearing somewhere on the pic or sometimes one or two or perhaps 3 bubbles......Is this the prob often occur in sony product camera since i found it too in a digital camera branded sony as well....
Zee, 14 Jan 2010I have C905 but its very slow. And i has bad experience in Sony Ericcson mobilesshould be had not has.
Zee, 14 Jan 2010I have C905 but its very slow. And i has bad experience in Sony Ericcson mobilesEven i also ve noticed that not good clarity. i think it has less 3mgpix.
Video player is crap. Won't play most mp4 files, they have to meet specific audio/video bitrates before it'll accept them.
the phone is too complicated ,all parts of the phone is expensive, repairers say is not like the normal sonyericson and therefore they charge more for repairs. this are just the bad side of the phone but the good side is a lot. it snaps clear and the pics are very bright ,its a beautiful phone.
jeanger02, 17 Jan 2010Finally got my C905 after changing several phones in a few months, but still the question is w... moreye ir in the philippines c905 is always prcing in 20thou and up
and i want to chnge my phone
and buy this if the price is going down.
only thing i hate abt it is Java thing. It should have been a symbian fone.
I have never had an issue with this phone and traveled from Australia to Europe and bought back amazing quality photos and video.
I am now using the Satio which is even better!
Finally got my C905 after changing several phones in a few months, but still the question is why can't I able to use the you tube application, is it true that C905 has no streaming, I've tried to download another you tube application instead of using the application included in the phone, but then it doesnt work. Though I'm happy and satisfied with the phone's capabilities, sound and of course its camera...but the price really not getting any lower, got it for about 20k php
erm...i think tis phone still ok..but i using tis phone without having any problem..
camera is great but the ribbon is faulty , the are times when the ear piece does not work
To all c905 Users:
I've been using this phone for 1 year and 6 mos. and never had the following experiences mentioned on this reviews which I had read along when visiting this site:
1. Faulty Slider
2. Faulty Camera
3. Poor battery performance
4. Lags and crashes
5. Sticking up of keys
6. Distort sound with the earpice speaker
7. Distort sound of the loud speaker
I am honestly telling to all of the people who reviewed this mobile awkwardly that this phone is really great and worth to buy. I actually both this phone in Saudia Arabia for 1,170 SR so we can say that in our currency its 14,430 PhP. With the 1st week up to the present since i purchased this phone, I never had any type of repairs or faulty syndromes as what you are telling about. Before you make any conclusions have you tried to ask yourselves with these questions:
1. Is the phone brand new?
2. Is the supplier where you get your SE phone is trusted and reliable?
3. When it comes to usage, have you consider the difference of the slider phone models with candy bar types?
4. Again with the usage, are you sure enough that at all times it was you who is using your phone? Are you careful enough?
5. Are you really honest in this experience or your just in the middle of sort of frustrations and just relieve the tension by blaming the phone itself?
6. Are you aware on how the c905 was studied and constructed before it was released?
7. Have you heard in your countries about the news of c905 counterfeits? There were news on the net that there are suppliers changing some parts, modifying the softwares and changing original battery packs? I am mentioning the news we had here in our country, maybe you can check it out on your own locale.
8. Have you read the specifications of the phone? Contact your supplier regarding settings of your browser, MMS, Streaming settings?
9. Regarding the wifi issue have you read the manual of this phone if what frequency or channel it can tranceive? are you aware with a,b,g channel of wifi networks?
10. Again, with wifi concerns, have you checked the type of wifi network you are trying to connect to? Is it public? or secured? ad hoc network? Did you know that?
If you were able to answer these 10 questions honestly and without any guilt on your side, then I would agree that this mobile is worst ever released by sony. By the way, before you use the word "WORST" make it sure that you were never ever used or written this with the previous reviews you have made with other phone models entirely on this site. Because when you said worst this is the officially shame model in the history! Right???
Again I am not biased, i agree with some reviews that the keypad is sometimes bit slow. but it doesn't affect the total performance. Remember in every type of devices there are differences. You will never have the trademark if you will copy completely the specification and features of the other brands and models. Try to consider also the difference of the interface and navigation of the phone with the other models. If you are really looking for a KILLER MACHINE, then better for you to carry on NETBOOKS!
