Horrible Phone. Good camera. Sent back to service centre 3 times due to faulty earpiece.
LOVE this phone!! Had it for 3 months now as upgrade from LG Sectret and had no problems whatsoever. Battery life is fine. No problems with aforementioned 'hanging'. Fantastic photo quality.
My handset is the 'plus' version.
Much prefer it overall to the LG I had.
This phone is no good at all,just bought it for one week,now its totally hang ,screen blank,no power on or off.poor QC.
Will you all ever stop with all the flippen moaning and groning about the c905. I dont know what the hell you are doing with your phones but mine is the best ever phone I have ever had and I am one fussy flitch when it comes to phones.
Its a fab phone true quality all the way.
unknown, 05 Jul 2009not very good...too bulky and it hangs very often.look my dear , we dont want children in ths forum
L, 29 Jun 2009Does it really have a TV-out, just like nokia 5800xm?PLS read text above.. :)
how much does this phone cost here in the Philippines? pls acknowledge. thanks much",
Far'rukh, 02 Jul 2009this phone is awesome
em gonna buy it for sure :)
but what does that means, 9hours (2G) an... more2G means 2nd Generation that is mainly GSM+GPRS+EDGE and 3G means WCDMA(UMTS)+HSDPA+HSUPA, These generations are always used w.r.t. the data rates that the technology can achieve and to achieve the data rates there are modulation schemes for the voice/data communication.
High speed or high data rates corresponds to higher modulation schemes that puts more demands on power amplifiers causing draining of battery power.
60% of battery life is used up because of the Power amplifiers and the way the hardware is designed and the software algorithms are written to keep the usage of battery power efficient.
WCDMA is inherently flawed technology w.r.t. battery life and thats why you will always see 40% less battery life in 3G (WCDMA( than 2G (GSM).
I can give you detailed explanation that would translate into a book and is out of the scope here.
Too bad, I would love to get one but with all the negative comments / complaints about this handset, it seemed like its not worth to get one anymore.
lovely phone, crap crap quality control from SE i hope they get their act together with the Satio - come on SE sort it out, or i'm not coming back
this phone is awesome
em gonna buy it for sure :)
but what does that means, 9hours (2G) and 5 hours (3G)
what is 2G and 3G
i think it is used for internet but how can you calculate it in talking time ?
Last week my 5th C905 went broke (again). The grey plastic side of the camera let loose just out of nothing. While my phone was 1 1/2 month old. I've had this problem before as well so it's not normal. The camera is great, so are the SE functions and connectivity's, but I've abandoned them for now. 3 reparations and 5 swaps later I've switched to a G1 that really is a joy to use. Too bad it doesn't have the camera of this phone. Well I might try the Idou/Satio again :)
I'm looking forward to buying this phone after looking at the various features it has: 8.1MP camera, Wi-Fi, etc.
2 questions for C905's users:
1. Does the keypad spoil easily? (cuz I use it to sms VERY OFTEN)
2. Will the speaker spoil? (cuz if that's the case, I can't even do a normal phone call without a external earpiece or bluetooth headset)
Thank you very much =D
I am one of the lover of sonyericssion products since fast 5 years and so far I have purchased T610,P910,W800,W950,K790,W890,G900 and C905.
I am choosing your products because of SONY brand name as well as quality in all the aspects and good service back up.
But now a days I am very much disappointed because of the following case history.
I have purchased a C905 mobile ( IMEI number 357602021710928 ) on 27th november 2008 with the cast of Rs 32500 in consolidated electronics which being a branded showroom of sonyericssion in coimbatore.The performance of the mobile found good only up to two months. On 24th janvary2009 I faced a earspeaker as well as side key problem in the new mobile. I have handed over the mobile in same date at ASIA ELECTRONICS-SALORA ( 342,d.b road,coimbatore-643102, India) and the complaint id is SESO9AEL10285. On 06-02-09 I have got a intimation from the service centre that I will get full box replacement after one week of time and allotted IMEI is 357602029929646. As I am being a regular customer to that particular showroom, they have given a new mobile IMEI 357602028772772 from their stock which readly available instead of replacement oppruvel IMEI is 357602029929646.
SECOND COMPLAINT ;
After two months I faced the key flip problem and number 6 very hard to operate in new C905 ( IMEI 357602028772772 ) . the problem has been solved by replacing the defective parts in C905 mobile by ACCEL FRONT LINE on 21-04-09 and the complaint id is CBE-SE-171062/0809.
THIRD COMPLAINT ;
After two months again I faced the same earspeaker problem in the same handset ( IMEI 357602028772772 ) and the mobile has been handed over in ASIA ELECTRONICS coimbatore on 15-06-09 complaint id is AE1-SE-239414. Till date I does’t received any positive answer from the service centre and always they excuseing me that right now necessary spare is not available and yet to come from the sony ericssion head office. So far I have made plunty of calls and direct visit but always the are repeating the same excuse. Regarding that I made a complaint in toll free number on 25-06-09 ( complaint id is SE1613-2034 ) and they instructed me to call after 48 working hours that means today. Then today made a call to toll free number and my call has been attended by your service front line person preethi around 10.20am . She told me to wait again two days for the solution and the spare not yet been dispatched while I am trying to speck more higher official she has disconnected the call and second time my call has been attended by a male rep.. he also did the same thing ( listen the record of my conversation for the proof ) .
Now I am requesting ALL THE SONY ERICSSION SALES AND SERVICE ORIENTED PEOPLE WHO HAVE INVOLVED DIRECTELY AND INDIRECTELY just read this case history and imagine where the sony ericssion mobile quality and service back up is.
Now my new C905 mobile I taking rest in your service centre.
Now the questions in me:
1. who should I purchase SE brand ?
2. whether higher investment in SE is worth ?
3. where is SE mobile quality?
4. what is the SE mobile time ?
5. 8 months or 1 year ?
6. what these SE service people are doing ?
7. where the SE service back up ?
8. frequent problem happens only in SE C905 or in all the brands ?
9. IF only in c905 means, what about the quality and why the mobile cost is higher ?
10. what is the minimum and maximum time required to solve
the customer complaint ?
11. whether proper spare back up is available or not?
10. If not why SE is promoting the c905 handset sales ?
11. Might have inform the customer before purchase that spares will not be available ?
12. why the toll free number is available? To repeat the same excuse ? or to solve the problem ?
13. where the senior customer service executives are?
14. what they are doing ?
15. whether this mail will reach the top people ?
16. whether this mail will be censored before?
17. whether this mail will be recorded ?
18. whether this mail will have recordable return mail?
19. when I will get the solution ?
20. what is the quarentee even after problem rectification ?
21. Rs 32500 is only for two months?
22. Rs 32500 is realiable ?
Really I am very shame about my foolishness in the huge amount investment in sonyericssion products by facing this frequent complaints.
I last my hope and trust on your brand and now I am conveying this issue to all friends and circumference.
I HOPE SONY ERICSSION WILL BE BEST EXAMPLE FOR THE WORST SERVICE AND I NEVER SEEN SUCH A KIND OF CONCERN WHICH PROMOTING THE COMPETATERS PRODUCTS INDIRECTLY BY GIVING THE WORST SERVICE TO THE CUSTOMER LIKE MY ISSUEAND I WISHING YOU ALL TO CONTINUE THIS SERVICE THEN ONLY EVERY BODY CAN COME UP IN THE MARKET.
Note ; If I not get the solution with in 2days after receiving this mail, I have to go for a parallel illegal action.
Now I am requesting you all please don’t force me to go for the above illegal action to get this small service rquest.
L, 29 Jun 2009Does it really have a TV-out, just like nokia 5800xm?You need to buy TV-Out Cable ITC-60 separately.
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2009This phone, is fab, though hangs most of the time, now its totally hang, cant get network cove... moreI just bought one today and my service kept breaking. Are you with Vodaphone? If so, change your service provider,and 3G is not user friendly either.Other than that,the C905 is not much better than my old K700i.
I hope you all works out fine for you.
There is a symbol above the signal symbol in the left hand top corner.Please can someone tell me what the symbol represents as it does not say in the owners manual,go figure.
