low HD 480p(480*854) is not supported
more defined playback, more background textures
excellent video clarity
x2- supprots ldtv res only.truly limited.

contrast and blackening

contrast,more grayish than black
cedar- feeble speaker,good clarity

no changes, still the same.

slightly slags and blinks when phone begins
playing a file through ovi player.

hey guys. Our cedar is getting popular day-by-day. I have seen so many cedars around. Infact 3 cedar are in my house. first i bought myself cedar then other members were very convinced by the performance of this phone when they used it. and cudn't resist themselves from buying it. GR8 fone...
i am using sony ericson cedar 3 months ago and its really a user friendly easy to handle grip design and its very convenient when i am accessing my mail on face book...
Guys... whoever is confused between Cedar and X2 check this out ->
mel, 17 Mar 2011wat is the best nokia x2 or sony ericsson cedar? Definitely cedar
Duke, 17 Mar 2011Thanks abhi, it worked when i selected my handset as zylo. but some of the themes didnt work. ... moreTo change the menu icons u will have to download flash lite themes and than mod ur phone. It's a complex process. Google it, u will find many articles describing this process.
Ritesh, 17 Mar 2011Hi Abhi,
I have read your comments and I feel you have good knowledge about SE mobiles.
I'm ... moreDon't ever go for yendo or x2. Both phones r having problems.
Yendo faces slow operation and hangup issues and also doesn't have basic features of operating system, while x2 has poor camera quality, poor battery life, hanging issues, switching off randomly type of issues.
In x2 the benefit is that it's loudspeaker has good loudness but cedar's loudspeaker has very low loudness.
While in x2 volume in headphones is very low while cedar's volume in headphones is good.
Other than loudspeaker loudness cedar beats down every other phone in this price range.
Things which u will not get in x2 while they r in cedar -> Multitasking, 280 mb internal memory, really smooth & fast user interface, 3G HSDPA 7.2 mbps, preloaded google maps-youtube-facebook-twitter-myspace-barcode scanner applications, better sound quality, very good battery life, cedar will never hang or switch off and there r many other things which u will only find in cedar.
