did they fix the speaker problem yet? because I want to buy this phone again.
I had this phone 5 days already. The way I really disappointed with this phone was:
1. Leak battery, no good. Too much power consumption!! Within 2 hours will be dead if you use WiFi network to browse. 3G Network will be less about 2-3hours.
2. Camera quality no good! Not sharp! Comparing with 8.1 MP should great and sharp.
3. Video quality no good! Blur, not sharp!
4. No front camera! Impossible to make video call 2 ways instant.
All other features are great like connectivity GPS, WiFi, 3G connect, Email, Google map, motion movement for games, moving wallpapers, slide the way of camera, Bluetooth, easy connectivity with PC as 3G modem through Bluetooth or USB cable, easy as media storage no driver required except phone mode (need to copy driver from PC suite installer).
For you all please consider the battery if want to buy! You are travelling person like Network/System Engineer like me definitely you need separate battery or more easily just use external charger.
Guys, I encountered Down key exiting my application when I got the phone in the 1st 2 weeks. Send in for repair for the 1st time.
2.5 months later, Up key not working, Keypad 1 & 7 not working & speaker problem.. 3 in 1....
Send in for the 2nd for repair...
First of all, i'm not an aggresive user because I take care of all my gadgets.. so these problems are purely phone issues.
I was very disappointed with SE new phones due to these reasons but I just dont bear to sell this C905 away because of its design & great 8.1 CyberShot phone....Wifi...ect...
Though many problems but generally, a great phone to have... You will love it if you can live with these known problems...

You must know what you like, dislike, and don't care about in order to find the right phone to you. GREAT phone by the way
If your still looking to buy this phone, don't worry about the speaker or keypad problems. The newer models of this device have fixed most problems, i assume this is one of them. From C905 to C905a(or C905 Plus) is the difference between great phone and bad problems to great phone PERIOD.
I have 2 of these, my wife has one as well. NO PROBLEMS at all, phone is a gem, best 8mp you can get and SE is better than nokia by far. If you have problems maybe be more careful, technology this beautiful should not be dropped.
lucky enough, 27 May 2009any one have same issue like mine? number 6 and 3 have problem, its working but its not like o... morehi there, i all also encounter the same problem as yours which is the keypad #6 hard to press but i repair it already at the shop where i bought it while its still on warranty. So don't worry about that problem, just fixed it as soon as possible. Then it would be feel like as new. i'v been using it around 5 months already, only the keypad is the major problem. Overall the phones still the best phones.
It is a good phone, i honestly don't know what the hell you people are doing to keep breaking your c905 coz i have had mine for months, and no problem so far. Brilliant phone.
My brother just bought me this phone and i think it is brilliant, the camera on it is amazing, overall a quality phone i would say :)
I love this phone, I really really really do. It has the best features of any non-pda/iphone style phone around. but...
I'm about to return it to the service centre for the second time since i've got it and the second time in three months.
The first time was the two common issues that have plagued many of the C905's the speaker doesn't work unless on speakerphone and the sticky keypad.
While both of those were fixed, now I have the opposite speaker problem, I can hear people on a call fine but the external speaker doesnt work, so no ringing, no speaker phone, no keypad tone, nothing. I have to rely on the vibration to hear a call coming in.
& the past week or so, the battery has started running down at an alarming rate. It used to last for quite some time and now I need to charge it every day to capacity because it runs right down to red, and I might only make one or two brief calls and a few text messages. This is without using gps, without using internet, without using bluetooth - it's not connecting to anything and nothing is running in the background.
While I love the phone, I feel like the model is a bit of a lemon across the board.
people what the hell are you doing with your SE c905 phone. been using c905 for 2 months now,i have never encountered any problem with this baby. cam is awesome, phone does not freeze nor restarting by itself. update your phone software if you encounter any fault with the phone SEUS will fix the problem
Hmmm... C905 is better when it comes to camera but overall, I think it's still better to choose N82 because phones with slides if got broken are hard to be fixed and no HSCSD for c905. overall, i still think N82 is better.
any one have same issue like mine? number 6 and 3 have problem, its working but its not like other pads who bounce back if your press it but its hard to press it, not soft... need help, what should i do? i love this phone, great camera, i love it, but some issue that im dealing with it... any advice or idea
This phone is not good for the repeated issues i have had....In 6 months I have had a total of four handsets ! Each time the same fault, the speaker malfunctions and you have to hold down C to hear a caller! And eventually even doing that fails to work. This problem is clearly inherent to this model. I wouldnt bother with it.. It's a shame as the camera is second to none. i know orange have taken it off their availabe model lists.
DONT GET THIS PHONE!! i got this for myself and one for my partner too... after 9days my speaker broke, and it was replaced now, i have had it repaired 3 times for the speaker and my partners twice for the speaker, also keypad especially the Cancel button wont work, and keep getting Phone status message poping up every 2 mins. had to argue for Hours to Phones4u to finally get them to swap for a different Make and model
i hav newly bought this wi fi phune.the video button isnt working fine.i may chnge it sooner but its 2nd set which has same problem
I am on my 4th C905 now. Each phone has been returned with same fault - earp speaker breaking and so can only hear person im talking to by using Loud Speaker. A shame as its a good phone, just a pity each of them seems to have same speaker faults.
david, 25 May 2009My speaker broke, so I can't hear the phone ringing, can I easily fix it? Is it common? turn the volume up
