Yeah man even I'll consider this over Naite.
It tops the Naite specifications with a 3.5 Jack and VGA video recording with what is sure to be an improved UI.
Finally, a Sony Ericsson phone that conforms to industry 'standards' like:
1. microSD (instead of M2)
2. microUSB charger
3. 3.5mm audio out
I'm cancelling my Naite order for this.
I really don't care about video calling. What's important to me are 3.5mm audio jack and 30fps video. 2MP is more than enough for me. 1.3MP is enough for me. ;)
Nwaby, 19 Jun 2010how come no flash or AF, even if its a 1.3MP flash and AF makes a huge diference. I am an SE f... moreNow I just found one more people that expecting too much from a mid-low phone... Seems you need a phone like iPhone 4, HTC Desire or Nokia N97... Not this one...
Yeah that's what I'm saying. It's better than the Naite and as I know Naite is a very good phone and for those who keep talking about the lack of flash, not everyone needs a flash or AF present. Consider the camera as a bonus feature rather than something prominent.
I would definitely pick this over Naite! This phone has 30fps videos recording 3.5 mm audio jack. Those 2 features alone put this phone head and shoulder above Naite.
If you keep aside the 2MP camera the rest of the specs are pretty good&standard and this phone can be directly compared with SE's own Naite. Cedar even out dos Naite in video recording.
Naite's a nice phone for sure and this one too will be.
Gio, 19 Jun 2010Why does it look like a nokia? Sony Ericsson has no imagination anymore? And from the image o... moreactually interface is very different, AND nokia is the one immitating the shaped of sony ericsson handsets, you mught to take a look at x5-001. shape is just like aspen hazel elm and cedar,
I'm waiting for this kind of phone from SE! I like this! I need 2 units ASAP. I like simple, candybar, elegant phones with features like this. "Nokia-ish" to be exact! lol
A great no nonsense phone with lots of features for general use. Looking forward to this one.
how come no flash or AF, even if its a 1.3MP flash and AF makes a huge diference. I am an SE fan but I got one out the SE train. . . SE is disappointing these days. Anyone ever used d F305 wil know what I mean
Why does it look like a nokia?
Sony Ericsson has no imagination anymore? And from the image on the screen it even looks like the menu from a nokia.Tis is VERRY SAD.If I want a nokia i'll buy a nokia, but I want a Sony Ericsson:(
Venom, 18 Jun 2010so is 3 MPx and 5MPx,but still they're ok for midrange devices, but for low end 2MPx is goodActually I think you're quite right. The pictures my old Samsung takes with it's 1.3 MP are quite passable, 2MP is a step higher and it's Sony Ericsson, after all.
Reviewer, 18 Jun 2010if X8 will be less than 200 euros then this will be 120 euros or lessprobably even less than that
Bob, 18 Jun 2010It seems the discussion never ends. To say that a 2MP camera is outdated is not accusing, it's... moreso is 3 MPx and 5MPx,but still they're ok for midrange devices, but for low end 2MPx is good
