Hi, I'm from Malaysia and bought the Elm yesterday. Was originally interested in the C903, but found that it was a bit too shiny for a 33-y.o. with premature grey hair :P
Cant say that much since only been using it for one day. The positives though are:
1. Camera takes good pictures
2. Love the video quality
3. Keypad is nice and easy to write SMSes
4. Love the shape... somehow easy and comfortable to hold
5. Quite thin
Some negatives (but dont bother me that much)
1. A bit long...
2. Shows bad reception
* but the thing is, even tho showing bad reception,
still can clearly communicate with the other guy/gal
ok. Will update later insyaAllaah (God willing) in case any other +ve/-ve points come up :D
has anyone there tried to use the external xenon flash of k750 in this phone?
how's the LED flash performance of this phone? is it bright enough? which phone has more powerful LED flash, elm or k750?
yes laresso it's already released. have it already and the video calling is functioning very well.
have had the Elm for 2 months now. This is an absolutelyuperb cell phone. It is better than the IPhone in a lot of respects and certainly better than the XPERIA 10 the HTC HD 2 or any other more expensive cell phones. Dont buy just 1 0r 2 buy in hundreds for all your friends and families. You will be popular for ever you will be the apple of everyone's cornea. Buy 1000 and gift them to people at railway station etc. Lot of poor people in world who can benefit from this cell phone. Change your phone for this cell phone today itself, dont waste a second.
laresso, 22 May 2010can somebody here from Manila confirm that the Elm version released here in the Phil.have a fr... morethere is no alternative model of Elm for philippine or any other countries. Elm does have video call feature - not video call dedicated camera - thru the main camera, that's what i think the shopkeeper wanted to explain, it can do video calling.
Anonymous, 22 May 2010is it possible to stream youtube videos over wifi?Yea, you can stream youtube through WiFi.
can somebody here from Manila confirm that the Elm version released here in the Phil.have a front facing secondary cam?
The person from the SE store said that this is a 3G 2 way phone...just want to find out from those who have this unit if the front cam is really functional.
I think some saying that the phone hangs and phone reception is bad, and other saying phone doesnt hangs and reception is bad. Is that because of the firmware variance, some using generic version, and some other region specific firmware, whats causing the issue.
According to the official Sony Ericsson website, Elm can store up to 16 GB using the MicroSD card. But here, it's written that Elm can only store up to 8 GB. Can anyone clarify which one is right? If it is true that Elm can store 16 GBs, will using it cause any problems such as the phone hanging or lagging? Any response would be appreciated.
For people who want to buy this phone i would wait for the new walkman's what are coming out soon ^_^ i had the elm its not all that lol. sold it for a rock bottom price brand new £55 even tho i paid £130 lol The c902 rapes the elm i love my c902 much better phone the elm feels cheap and there is some software problems on the elm and still no update
