to all those who plan to buy SE cedar or zylo
################################... moreStop fooling people around!!!
My cousin bought zylo 2 months ago.
I have tested it's video rec. and it falls to 8 fps only if lightning conditions r REALLY LOW.
I was once going somewhere with my cousin in his car & it was raining outside so I just recorded the video & it was not lousy at all !!!
I agree it was not nice like in bright sunlight but being very lousy and jerky is out of question.
to all those who plan to buy SE cedar or zylo
I bought zylo a month ago,and i post a message concerning the issue of VGA video frames rates..if u have read it..I would like to apologize for giving u the wrong message..at that time,i though the problem has to do with the folder management..that doesn't solve the problem..i got it wrong..and would like to clear this..
now,I am very sure that it isn't,the truth is..it is a variable frame rates camera for taking video,which only gives you 29.XX maximum frame rate under strong sun light,in the low light situation or even indoors with bright fluorescent or incandescent light,u can only get 8 or 5 frames of vga video..jerky,lousy,terrible video
their is only 2 option for zylo,u can either choose video for MMS or VGA.for the cheaper sibling cedar..u won't get anything better.
VGA 30frames is just a gimmick by SE,I felt being cheated by SE...i would prefer CIF 30 frame rather than getting VGA 8 frame.
IF video recording is important to u...don't buy zylo or cedar
When u speaking about java phone , SE still number one for a java phone. The Cedar is low budget java phone with nice feature inside now. Support 3.5 G tech, 3.5 mm hole for audio, nice keypad on curve candy bar model, mini usb hole. Etc etc.
Finally a java phone is never die.
SE always win with a java phone.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2010I think there is some problem with ur network. Try using another sim....Its not a sim issue. I have been using the same sim with nokia 2700 and never had problem. Always received calls while using internet. I took my cedar to sony service center, they checked it and sent it for replacement. Hope new piece comes clean!! I love this phone...

Its only Rp.900.000,- Greenheart, eco friendly materials. 3G, Video Call, Google Maps, X-Picture Story (Movie Maker -w/ music). Perfect Phone!

Abhi, My Friend, Your Opinion is right to the Point.....
CEDAR is a Budget Phone, One Can't Expect Miracles from it.. Moreover, when high-end phones can't deliver what is promised why treat our little CEDAR like it Shattered the dream of UR Dream Phone. I agree that it's not the perfect phone(In My Honest Personal Opinion, there is no such thing as a 'PERFECT PHONE' it's just a concept like any other & I thing only the person who is using it can tell if it is 'PERFECT' for His/Her Purposes)but it does have more feature than any other phone in the given price bracket. The Issue with low ring volume can/may be rectified in the coming firmware updates. It too early for it to deemed unworthy...
I would also like to point out the ignorance of an established company like SONY ERICSSON in presenting the true facts about their product. In fact I did send a mail to SONY ERICSSON regarding the Video Issue & they were not decent enough to reply me back.... I don't find that Professional at all....!
Hi... I bought this for just 1 month back. all its functions are good except its sound. its very worst in sound.... we not even know is our phone is ringing....

yeah I agree that frame rate can drop to 8fps in cedar bcoz I am having Naite from about 8 moths and I just checked its frame rate in low light conditions, it also drops frame rate to around 8 or 10.
For those guys who r saying that video rec. of Naite is better I would say it's actually not better.
And yeah vijay I remember that when gsmarena reviewed samsung omnia HD the same frame rate drop was the problem with it.
So If a high end device like that can drop frames that why expect superb video rec. from cedar.
abhi, 21 Oct 2010Look bharat I don't have any grudge against u but I don't believe its 8fps.
A guy named vijay... moreHai Abhi, Sorry 4 being absent for so long, I was very busy with my work... I see that there has being a lot of debaite on the topic of video frame resolution & frame rates going on about CEDAR here. I would like to point out something here.... Someone commented here that the FPS or framerate was 8fps. well, he may be true....partially! The i found out is that if u record video outdoors(in Good Sunlight)the FPS is 15(14.97) to be exact BUT if it is indoor or worse at low light(Night especially)it drops down to 12, 10 or 8FPS. So, I think the person was right when in a way when he said it was 8FPS BUT wrong in way When he said it was only 8fps. I would also like to Quote one of Follow posters here(Mr.marujii) 'i bought zylo 4 weeks ago,video is vga 30frame,BUT sometimes it falls to only 5frame...then i move all the video clips(mtv) not taken with the phone to a sub folder i created and then it's back to normal'. I think there is a Limitation with the Hardware in CEDAR.. May be that reason behind the Difference in FPS rate...
Abhi, if you remember the SAMSUNG i8910 Omnia HD had the same problem... Quote form the GSMARENA Review....
'In almost all the cases the framerate was variable and went below the promised 24fps giving the videos somewhat choppy looks. We aren't talking disastrously many dropped frames but there are about one every second in some videos. You might not even notice that if shooting slower moving objects but more rapid movements looks bad. The Samsung Omnia HD is not really the soccer mom's dream.'
