bought this phone yesterday to complement my Galaxy S (android's pathetic battery is killing me).paid Rs.4500(wasn't easily available so couldn't bargain). here's my take after one day :
Nice display. better color and viewing angle than any other phone in same range.
Nice shape. though plastic is kinda cheap but fit and finish is very good ,hence feels nice in hand.
A200 platform of SE is far better than anything Samsung or nokia S40.
Excellent keypad. one of the main reason i bought this phone.
Audio through headphone is on par with many high end device.
*PRACTICALLY UNUSABLE LOUDSPEAKER*. its very quite , forget about hearing rings in noisy street.you wont be able to hear it even if you are in 20 foot away. This also makes viewing video a pain
Camera is not very good for its price range, (see samples at http://flickr.com/tamoghno)
Many standard SE themes are not supported.

This is fantastic phone, I am using it from 1 week, I love this. I wish i get wife like this only. This is very very fast phone in terms of UI as well as internet speed. this has serious specification. this phone is for value driven people not money driven people. if you tell this phone is equipped with 3.5G connectivity , no one believes, they may make fun of you,only you know its capabilities. this phone supports 16 GB MicroSD , wow . and you absolutely don't need any software to connect it as modem,. instantly it acts like modem. wow. This is great invention from SE, wow, Music is as best as Sony, supports live video streaming You tube etc, camera is very nice, crystal clear videos and photos.
@hero,i live in kolkata.here service provider can not provide 2g connection properly.3g is alien technology...
@hero,thanks again for the information.
@yb,thanks 2 u 2o.
Yesterday i appilied for bsnl broadband.by next 15 days will get the connection.
Am selling my sony ericsson j105 naiti and will buy cedar by this weekend...
AnonD-12073, 27 Jun 2011@hero,u are right again.that hapens when i use my naiti as modem for a long time.does that aff... moreYes, it will effect your battery life. It happens with each and every phone.
As YB suggested don't use your phone as modem via cable/bluetooth for 2-3 continuously.
I will recommend you to buy huawei 3g unlocked data cards for internet.( ONLY IF YOU WANT TO USE INTERNET FOR 4-5 HOURS). Data cards like huawei e1550, huawei e173. I have huwaei umg1831 ( 21mbps) data card. I use vodafone2g/airtel3g in that.
I don't use my phone as modem for more than 1 hour , if i know that i'm going to use internet for long hours then i will remove airtel sim from phone and use it in my 3g data card.
AnonD-12073, 27 Jun 2011@YB,my sony ericsson naiti belongs 2 green heart family still it get heat up...Open yur back cover and connect to pc. Place yur mob, upside down. It'll take some time to heat up:)
AnonD-12073, 27 Jun 2011@hero,u are right again.that hapens when i use my naiti as modem for a long time.does that aff... moreYa. Der is a chance to lose its standby time, if its heated for long time. Its normal fa all man. Dont use as modem fa 2 or 3hrs contineously.
AnonD-10730, 27 Jun 2011Cool man.
