Hi, i have purchased sony ericsson cedar for rs 3780 from letsbuy.com using 15 % off voucher.
Silver/ white cedar
Here is my review:
1)Excellent sound clarity in-ear phones,no problem what so ever while speaking with in-ear speaker.
2)3.5G @ 7.2mbps, phone connected to pc ( se companion ) using AIRTEl 3G getting 5-6 mbps @ 700 KBps of download speed.
5)SMS Conversations, i love this one the most.
6)Excellent battery-back up, 2 days.
7)micro sd card Supports upto 16Gb
8)Pre-loaded apps like google maps, youtube....i don't have to install again. Installed opera mini which is really fast.
1) Loud speaker is low but ok.
2) Cannot hear ringtone when some one calls.
Sol: i have selected NATURE ringtone which is really loud and my problem is solved and now i can hear if any one calls.
3) No secondary cam, video call is there but only with main camera
overall review: It's a fantastic phone ,priced at 3780rs in indian market,at that price what can you expect more than that?
Cedar has HSDPA @ 7.2mbps guys you get unlocked huawei 3g data cards @ 2300 rs from ebay.in and now you got a phone which has 7.2mbps for 3780 rs, isn't that fantastic????
MUST BUY PHONE.
