yes,abhi is right. cedar is an under rated java mobile with excellent features.
But only problem i
Face from date I purchase is whenever I play songs either by headset or by loudspeaker using 'megabass' option it produces some blurr kinda sounds for all songs.
About battery backup when i use 2g ,it gives about 3 days of standby time and using 3g(bsnl) it gives ,one and a half day.
Guys there r many things which u would never be able to get in any other brand in this price range.
Here r the examples -
Multitasking, 3G HSDPA 7.2 Mbps with video calling, huge internal memory (280 mb), preloaded google maps, much better 2mp camera than other brands, much better sound quality in headphones, really nice screen as compared to other phones of same price range, photo fix, track id, super nice & very snappy user interface, no hanging or switching off, really nice keypad, nice design, preloaded facebook, twitter, myspace, youtube, neo barcode reader apps, onscreen widgets, music call, sense me, ultimate java support, virus free bcoz se's java interface is based on Linux (which is virus free), unlimited msg storage etc......
These kind of problems r with nokia only .
SE phones don't suffer from them.

[deleted post]I notice only people from India tell that this Cedar is good.
Question: is there any different product sales in India and in other countries?

Nice mobile at this price group.Features which should be highlighted to keep other junkers shut are
1.Multi function support (you cannot find it in any other brand)
2.Music player is nice,, very good with Hea set.(its sonys class)
3.camera-good as 2mp
5.Good Keypad design
6.3.5mm jack and mini usb port (its a good step by SE)
7.Battery Backup is really appriciable.
8.Java games and application download and install support is one of the great feature in SE (nothing is there to compete)
9.GPRS speed is good.Improved 3g which supports video call.
10.Improved voice clarity & signal catchup
11.Only thing is the external loud speaker is bit a low volume (but 1 flaw in 100 good can be acceptable).
Totally great mobile at this price group ... good value for money. I recommend CEDAR to everyone who expecting mobiles at 5k price range.
my 3 friends are having hanging,virus and charging problems wid cedar n 0ne's camera als0 stopped working. so please dont b fool,buy NOKIA only. if u want to regret like my friends,then only buy this crap.. choice is urs.
@abhi., hai friend, I am die hard se fan.. currently I am using x10 mini.. I suggested cedar to my friend .. his main purpose in mobile is to surf net in pc via mobile.. as per my suggestion he took this mobile one week back... but he regreted his buy since he didn't find pc suite .. I have pc suite 6.0 and pc companion 2.0 .. both didn helped to connect. so I am feeling guilty to face him.. whether this model acts as modem or not .. if it so will you please provide me link to download ..
Cedar is low budget phone, so don't complain with its low quality.
You get what you pay, it's fair enough.
I am nt having cedar bt ya i hav tried it video quality of cedar i found was equally gr8 as stills, der were no blocks or any lack of pixels in rec. I din't find loudspeaker also 'too low' as mentioned by some others it was sufficient enough. The reasn behind its cmparativly less loud volume maybe because it's frm GREENHEART Series and noise-pollution is also counted as an aspect of pollution...

There is no problem with it's battery life. I'm seeing this problem for the 1st time & as u said yesterday it seems that this has happened only once.

Update ur software & if still the problem isn't solved than go to sony ericsson service centre.

What really matters is how much can u do with ur phone rather than some creepy thing like loudness which is not so important if we consider the other features.

If u r so much concerned abt loudness of loudspeaker than go for some LG or any other brand u like. But after doing that ur friends having se phones like cedar would be teasing u every minute here & there abt how stupid ur LG phone is......
R u gonna play the music to a bunch of people on the street or maybe to a bunch of people in party or maybe replace ur home theatre with a phone......
Stop complaining so much abt loudness.
Loudness is important but not so much that u would turn down everything in front of it.
If u r going in a crowded or noisy place than just turn ur phone to vibration mode & problem solved . If u r at home than just the loudspeaker is sufficient to do it's purpose(it's not as much weak as u r bragging it to be)
Other than that left is college or office where everyone keeps their phone at vibration mode, so pls tell me where else do u need ur phone's speaker loudness ???
