rocker, 02 Sep 2010I had read the reviews that was was very good but reality is beyond of it.I bought this phone ... moreMaybe your hand moves that's why your shot was not that good and this phone doesn't have image stabilizer.I have SE C905 and my cousin Nokia N97 and when we compare the pictures at 5mpxl... Sony Ericsson stands out and it's a fact! My cousin is jealous of my phone.
i have bought sony ericsson elm on 11th sep 2010 and i am satisfied with the camera quality and normal sound . if you need more sound than this you require a loud speaker ? according to me this is a good phnoe , i am satisfied with it .
i wanna exchange my 2 week old elm with c901 , is there any one ?
Hi, I bought the Sony Ericsson Elm 4 days ago. I notices something strange, when I talk over the phone and put my ear real close to the phone, I can hear some kind of buzzing sound. When the person on the other side of the line is silent you can hear it even more, it's only during phone calls. Must be the microphone... Has anyone else experienced this? This is my second new brand mobile phone (after lg puccini) that I am obviously having problems with from the very start. Now I am so concentrated on the buzzing that I hear it every time and it drives me crazy. Haven't dropped the phone or anything... Please help!

I only like predictive texting.
I have emailed sony ericsson today due to this irritating bug which is on other new sony ericsson phones.
They need to fix it now, my phone is on latest firmware.

I don't have a habit of dropping phones on the floor, but it's happened many times with my old phone, which survived it with no scratches! Phones are for calling and handling, it's normal that sometimes they are dropped, they should'nt be too fragile...
guys this is an excellent phone...i mean i am just in love with the design..You guys at sony ericsson has really given it a nice touch..I have heard so many people complaining about the signal reception of this phone but i am using it for a week now and i can say that it has very strong network reception and very sensitive too..Keep that in mind that its always the network that causes problems not the phone...excellent battery backup too(5 days and still going strong)
the phone have a video call option right? how can we make video call with no second camera??
Is there any secret code for this phone?
N is there any chance to update firmware via net?
I bought it. One day later, it was in my pocket and it fell unfortunately on the floor when grabbing my keys. Glass broken. Oh yeah ! Why do SE put a glass protection and not in plastic, especially when it is not touchscreen ?! I mean a phone is intended to fall on the floor ! Who did not experience this situation ?
So don't forget to buy a ugly protect case before going out of the shop ! Too flimsy.
is there a way to turn off the auto dim function?
i noticed the screen is pretty clear when its on high brightness. but the sensor makes it too dim for me.
i have dis phone but the screen not so clear... the lighting is poor... is it normal for elm?
ajay, 05 Sep 2010i know very well that MP means image size not quality and i also know that you cannot judge th... moreI'm not just basing my judgement with the pictures at websites I myself am an actual user of this mobile, like I said it takes great photos at daylight, sharper than even some 7.2 mp digicams that I have used, which is why I said that you must be doing something wrong with it, you'll need to have a steady hand because Elm usually uses very low ISO on Daylight to produce high quality photos.
In my response to nowhere near even 2mp, cmon now, you surely do know what the images looked like during the 2mp generation of phones, It's extremely exaggerated to say that the Elm is even nowhere near 2mp, it's obvious that you are just bashing the phone itself. Isn't it obvious that a lot of reviews, photos already prove that it takes great pictures, and you sir are saying that it extremely sucks. It's either you don't know how to use it, or just posting here to hate the phone, go troll somewhere else
The turn off option for the predictive text word suggestion drop down box does not appear to work.
I have an un altered generic handset not meddled with by the networks.
Who is having the same problem?

i had given my feedback after using the actual phone & i say it again that this phone is not worth buying at any amount more than 5000 indian rupees.
Ajay, 04 Sep 2010I bought this phone 3 days back only due to its unique design & camera features. i am shoc... morenowhere even near 2mp? you must be joking or you are not using the camera properly, just look at the sample photos at gsmarena and also the hundreds of great photos at esato.
And also for additional information, most people do not understand what megapixel is, megapixel is the PICTURE SIZE, not the PICTURE QUALITY, no matter how many megapixels there is, its the image processing algorithm as well as the camera lens and sensor that is responsible for image quality.
HIGHER MEGAPIXELS DOES NOT MEAN BETTER PICTURE. A lot of people gets sales talked when it comes to megapixels.
Are the google maps preinstalled in it ?
Does gps work effectively?
is it jsr 179 compatible?
I bought this phone 3 days back only due to its unique design & camera features. i am shocked to see the results of camera which is nowhere even near to 2MP. phone design is satisfactory but the plastic used is horrible which gives it very cheap look. Phone software is good, speed is fine. This phone is only worth 5000 rs in India.
Of course the k800i will still perform way better in lowlight due to its xenon flash, Elm/Hazel only has LED flash.
Like I said Elm/Hazel is great at daylight photos. Lowlight photos are bad, and yes it produces these quite annoying lines, they can be reduced though by setting the camera to a lower EV or setting the camera to twilight
