And i have had so many problems it ain't funny. I was about to send mine back to be fixed again and was told we will replace it for you. Great i thought until they said with the same phone. Well, now i'm thinking twice about it. Do i want the same phone back or do i go to another. So you tell me you seam to have all the answers.
This phone is a fail. I got the copper gold version and was excited how well it will fair against my old Nokia 6220 Classic...to my dismay the C905 is rubbish. Why you say? Let me enumerate:
1) The photos are really dull, smoky, and could use a bit of sharpening...ironically even in the natural sunlight in which SHOULD be the greatest ally of any photoshooting!
2) The phone hangs after turning of the WIFI, I am not surprised...this brick is running a 170mhz processor as compared to the nimble 369mhz of my old 6220 Classic.
3) Batteries with normal use, and when I say normal includes using all features, last only 1 day 6 hours. The LCD is already at 50% brightness.
Again, there's more small disappointment to this phone...the 8.1mp is just a scam...more pixels doesn't mean better quality. Think 10x before buying this phone...I'm leaning on the Carl Zeiss models for now...this is a stupid phone.
reem, 19 Aug 2009Hi i saw this phone and since that day ive been saving every penny of my hardwork for it ,but ... moreIf you would go to web sights and read peoples opinions THAT USE THE PHONE, you don't hear none of the crap that you read here. Most people complain about it being 'bulky', small keys, and I have only heard of one person complain of low volume. Most of the people here have nothing better to do but complain.
I heard about the short battery life and the earphone not working. But I have had my C905 now for 6 months and had no problems at all with it. Like all Sony Ericsson phones it's great, but I think the AGPS is rubbish, its accurate to 1700 metres..? You could be almost 2 kilometres from where you need to be and still be lost!!

the best phone, i have 10 months and its the best,is not true that i has short life,
I absolutely hate this phone, complete waste of money. The camera is useless, it takes forever to actually load, it is so slow at everything, the battery life is just rubbish. Ive had it 5 months and im taking it in for repair already as the firmware has failed. Its constantly got a red light flashing on the side and half the time wont let me ring or text people. I was dissapointed with the video calling as you have to use the back camera (on such a techy phone??)
In my view the last few SE ive had have been useless, tempted to go back to nokias.

Think about it, what do you do when you call in with a problem, they tell you to cut your phone off and back on. I see mine do this once in awhile. Turns white, then blue, then off, then back on. Takes about 20 secs to do this, and you cant do anything when it does. Maybe why I have no problems with mine, and it does it when you are not useing the phone.

w955 is a great phone to consider, except for it dual flash led.. even it has three led flash, it none to compare to xenon flash.. so i think for those who like photograph, c905 is a great choice..

Anonymous, 13 Aug 2009Got this phone Dec 08; very exciting features & good Wifi & camera. BUT... it crashes a lot... moreI agree the keyboard is a "Piece of Junk" twice sent back and now it does not hold its charge - wish I had never seen the thing and as for SonyEricsson "Dont hold your breath" for an answer either they cater for that kind of customer care!!
