lol, 16 Jun 2011super ugly design..lol. Very funny.
The design is cool.
Just check out a demo piece before commenting stupidly.
The pics doesnt speak completely.
Eg: take case with x3, the phone is all glazing and blazing in its pics, but in real, its so dull and the slider got creaks. Just photoshop.
A great phone, best in its class... better than Nokia x2, Nokia x2 is waste of money... my friend has a Nokia x2 he is regretting for not chosing a better one like Sony Ericsson Cedar... Really a nice phone cedar. I am also planning of buying a Sony Ericsson Cedar.

wreck, 15 Jun 2011It seems many are confused over c2-01 and cedar. Here's the true full-review of c2-01 and ced... moreu ppl brag abt cedar as being the greatest in the price range of rs 5000 but i dont think so..all the phones under this price range are wiorthless as they lack qwerty or a touch screen and to only let u know the phone u constantly brag about is one of them.also it only has virtually unlimited apo size support but it only has 5.5MB heap size so the max supported size for a jar file is only upto 2.5MB..why did u not try the 4.1MB version of angry bird? but let me tell u that angry bird is not even close to the symbian 3/android/iphone angry bird as ur fone can hardly run java apps.and abr multitasking u minimised abt 10 apps which ones they were cal? notes? calendar? cobtacts???..just let me reveal to u the fact that ONLY OS's LIKE SYMBIAN, ANDROID,iOS,WINMO are capable of TRUE MULTITASKING...also the cam quality is not even near to the sony's own k750i and u say its got a great cam? also what fun is to watch 640x480^29 videos on a 2.19 in QVGA display that too only supporting 256k colors.and what abt D pdfs,excel,DOC,etc documents and what abt flash in the web browser? if the phone lacks such common features then wats d use of that 3.5G connectivity? and why it lacks edge class 32 that even a c2-01 has! 90% of d population can hardly afford 3.5G it costs around 751INR for just 2048MB!and dont say that the cam equal to a nokia 5230 if u mod and turn off compression then a 5230 beats cedar anyday!!
It seems many are confused over c2-01 and cedar.
Here's the true full-review of c2-01 and cedar.
Nb: if some one is intending to call this biased, please let me know why and how?.
I own x2 and cedar. I dont own c2-01 but had experience with it everyday as a close friend of mine owns it.
c2- max speed 376kbps , no hsdpa, hsupa.
Cedar- HSDPA 7.2mbps, HSUPA 3.5mbps.
C2- 2.0" TFT , tilted to all sides and colors are mixed up. Poor side view.
Cedar- 2.2" TFT, Only one side mixes up colors, that too better than what happens in c2. Better side views.
Cedar- 60.8db (can be upgraded upto 68db changing audio driver)
C2- poor clarity, too high distortion compared to other phones.
Cedar- above average quality, better than x2.
C2- above average loudness with average quality. Headset supplied is poor and below 500rs
Cedar- excellent loudness with outstanding quality. Slightly better than x2.
Headset supplied is good and costs 1060rs in market.
Max bitrate should be below 1000kbps for hassle free playback. clarity improvement ends after 880kbps.
Videos must be below 320*240 resolution else played as audio..
Max bitrate should be below 5840kbps for hassle free playback
Visible improvement in clarity ends after 4200kbps.
Any resolution below 640*480, (else 'cannot play this video') , can be played qvga,nHd 360p,ultra low hd,240p, vga...
C2- qvga at 15fps, when tested maximum bitrate ends up everytime below 800kbps.
Cedar- qvga at 30fps. Max bitrate betwen 1400-1600 everytime tested. (Bitrate, frame per sec...etc based on media player classic's readings)
C2- 3.2mp, 2048x1536 resolution images.
Cedar- 2mp 1600x1200 resolution images.
C2- below par quality and often blurry and absorb less colors compared to x2. And even lower when with cedar
Cedar- pretty decent sensor, color absorbing and clarity almost par with great 2mp's like 5233, 5250.
C2- symbian 40 ver6.
Easy to use when owned a nokia.
Maximum java size 1mb
Partial os, allows you to create folders and move files to wherever you like.
Partial java, multitask is not there along with smartdial and various other goodies.
Display brightness cant be adjusted.
Alarm loudness is low.
Sony proprietory java
Easy to use when prev phone is sony. Else gotta get familiar.
No java limit, rename the .sis 2.4mb version of angrybirds and the only handset that accepted the file without 'java error' among samsungs,lg's,s40's.
Multitask is available, minimise even 10+ apps and the phone continues running smooth.
Smart dial is available.
Still java, and you can move .mp3 into music, .jpeg then to pictures..etc only. 'To unlock, enter code' feature isnt available
Can adjust brightness.
Can be modified in many ways using software just like using pc suite. Can upload new audio driver, camera driver, display driver,....
Alarm is louder.
C2- good backup, usual nokia stuff.
27-33 hours under normal usage
Cedar- very good backup, very rare for a sony
38-45 hours under normal usage.
C2- tough build, usual nokia standard.No shutter key
Cedar- tough build, rare for a sony. Dropped atleast 60+ times (lost count) and still no problem.No shutter key.
Vol keys double as next previous keys once playing music.
Both support micro usb (2.0&2.1)
Both got 3.5mm jack
Both support microSD
Both got backlight alert for calls and sms.
Both have a similar 4x3 arrangement in picture gallery.
Both are from same price range, under 5000rs..
I've tried to add all features, please notify if I missed anything..
[deleted post]The message-capacity in Cedar is practically unlimited. For instance, I have 1665 msgs in my phone acquiring only 8 KB. So take a calculator & calculate how many messages can be stored in 280 MBs. Its innumerable buddy.
Sam, 15 Jun 2011anyone tell me the messages capacity in cedar...more than 600 messages
