jing, 25 Dec 2010question: can i use a different USB connector for my cedar phone??yes its possible iam using one my other Samsung phone and it works prettuy fine.
I had this phone for 2 weeks now,from my experience,this se cedar is quite reliable for its price which i bought it for 4,450 pesos here in our country..no hassle from social networking(not to fast),to battery problem and the speaker is quite normal for me...overall,it is good phone and a must buy for his price. thank you
Follow the following steps to save battery energy
:-) Wallpaper on home screen should not greater than 10kb
;-) Always set harp theme that is available in cedar and consumes less battery
:$ Brightness of the phone set it as 50 %
:-D If you are in 2g network dont select 3g option in operator setting because your mobile trying to use the battery for unavailable network
:-S Try to reduce the bluetooth transfers
:-* if the your operator tower is more than 10 km of your service area it will consumes more battery so, try use operator sim which are near your service area.
;-) For normal users in above condition battery would last of for 5 days. Normal users means 10 to 20 calls a day, 2 hours of gaming , 2 hours surfing, and few sms.
B-) For heavy users like 40 to 50 calls a day whole day surfing addicts, whole day texters and heavy gamers for above mentioned condition battery would last up to 3 days.
:-P may be some peoples not agree with me. I know but try the same and replying me.
:-P This is completely tested by myself and written here for benefits for others, the above statement is completely true to the best of my knowledge. This experiment is done with sony ericsson cedar for past two weeks.
:-S and today I have written above statement with my green heart cedar by gopinath gkg madurai tamilnadu. Bye by cedar gopinath

abhi, 25 Dec 2010Hi ,
I really appreciate the fact that u gave a review but u can't really compare cedar with ... moreTrue -- comparing K660i and J108i would not be exactly right. Firstly they are from different series, Secondly the price considered at launch would vary a lot.
Two years back I got it for INR 8000/- all inclusive.
IMHO comparing phones which you have already used gives better results.
I have heard / read that J105i aka Naite, released about 1+ years back from same series has better sound quality than J108i.
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2010hey abhi, why does phone memory keeps reducing 1mb evrytime i used op mini. Pls reply. Cz whn ... moreThere r many reasons for reduction of phone memory like - using internet via phone's internal browser bcoz it saves the info of browsing history as - history ,cache & cookies. Having more & more msgs in inbox when msg memory is selected as "phone memory" also reduces memory.
I don't know why ur phone memory is reducing after using opera mini bcoz my phone memory is still the same.
I suggest u to perform these steps -
1.clear ur history & cookies in opera mini everytime u finish browsing.
2.clear history ,cache ,cookies in ur phone's inbuilt browser
3.remove phone's battery for few minutes.
4.move ur msgs from phone memory to memory card.

I really appreciate the fact that u gave a review but u can't really compare cedar with k660.
K660's price was much more than 10000 INR when launched but cedar's price at launch was just 5700 INR.
So they r from entirely diff. categories.

Using this phone for the past two weeks. Over all for the price (INR. 5400/- + taxes)it is a good phone with features from SE.
My review is based on the comparison with my previous phone SE K660i. I believe it to be a good method of rating, as I decided to get J108i based on the features K660i had and the overall experience using it for 2 years. I had SE J105i aka Naite in my list but got Cedar for the audio jack and new data connector. With K660i, connecting the data cable / the headphone is trouble after some usage.
Previously had a SE T610 -- wonderful phone
Next was SE K660i -- another wonderful phone
Now SE J108i aka Cedar
Comparing it with the SE K660i (Rating A-E)
Features -- overall both the phones have similar features. Cedar has faceook, twitter, witgets, standard audio jack... (Rating: A)
Screen quality IMHO it is a bit dull and not so sharp compared to K660i (Rating: B)
Sound quality not so impressive when compared to K660i. SE could have done a better job with sound as normally a phone is used primarily to speak and hear.
Internal speaker -- not so good (1/5)
Internal loud speaker -- not so good (1/5)
Bundled headphones -- not so good -- meaning the sound quality. (1/5)
Tried Sony headset -- not so good (2/5)
Tried connecting to car audio system
-- not so good (2/5)
Tried playing mp3 format songs but the sound quality is not so good. Same for FM.
IMO it is the internal audio DSP which in not to the mark of K660i. (Rating: D)
User interface -- overall improved speed compared to K660i (Rating: A)
Battery life -- comes with a 1000mAH 3.6W battery, good standby time. (Rating: A)
Charging -- comes with a charger with some new type of USB connector on the phone. (Rating: A)
Internet connectivity -- good connectivity in Ubuntu Linux and Windows with SE suite. The PC software in present in the phone. No need to carry software CD.
Data cable / connector -- not included. The connector on the phone is good as compared to K660i. (Rating: B)
Looks -- A new design with a an appealing look. (Rating: A)
Ergonomics -- Nice to hold in one hand, but a little annoying to text as it tends to fall off. (Rating: B)
Environment -- after you unplug the charger reminds you to switch it off. No CD, plastic, in box -- good for environment. Some other apps in phone, not tried it yet. (Rating: A)
Overall -- Cedar is a good 3G phone for the price tag except for sound compared SE K660i. The other option IMHO with similar features and comparable to K660i is SE J105i aka Naite. SE has done a good job with the green initiative, but I expected more from Cedar as my primary usage is for phone calls, next as an audio player and last as a 2G/3G modem. I was really shocked to hear the sound quality, having used the K660i for about 2 years.
Overall (RATING: B) -- but I still love SE phones.
