yes this is probably the worst phone i've ever used. the touchscreen is not responsive and it's usually laggy. not much games to play on it though. thought it's supposed to be a gaming phone.
good thing i didnt buy this handset. seems to have so much complications. was choosing between this and the LG cookie, bought the latter. but i wish i couldve gotten the k770 instead, exceptional phone. was just blinded by the touchscreen craze. i bet that when the time comes that touchscreen phones are as common as handsets with keypads, people will come to their senses & choose the keypad-operated phones.
I use SE G700 for 6 months, and don't have such problems. It works perfectly for me. This DELICATE phone isn't for everyone.
i have started using this model for a month now. found some problems with this model
1. touch response is really bad
2. Panel quality is so bad
3. Battery life is so low when u use internet
4. Need to close the applications frequently to get the decent performance.
5. Keypad quality is really bad.
6. not supporting much video file formats even if u try to open it will struck.
7. camera image quality is so poor . there is no image stabilizer and most of the image shinks
8. radio quality is soo poor and need to set the channels frequently
9.not good for Gaming purpose
all together i wont recommend this model to anyone.

somya, 30 Jan 2009Hi I am facing a problem in my cell phone Sony Ericsson G700. The problem is that it is s... moremaybe your phone is infected with a virus. it shows the typical symptoms, memory getting used up without adding new files etc..
qwerty, 03 Feb 2009Paz24 - I find that phone can read only .doc file format, and can't read .docx. Qwerty - I can read '.doc' files and solved my problem which I reported below. Files can be saved on phone memory or on memory stick. The of windows I was using for some reason only let me see files/directories which are saved on memory stick. In other versions of Windows, for eg Vista, I can see both.

Just baught this mobile and cant complain for now. Have one problem however - when I create folders, eg excel/word files on the G700, I cannot view them on my PC when I connect to it. Transfering word/excel files from my PC to mobile and viewing them on G700 is no problem however. Any ideas about what I could be doing wrong? Thanks
Ryland - yes, you can edit and read and create new Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files.
Hi, please don't buy the chinese made G700.The product quality is very low. My phone's key pad stopped responding and after keeping it for 1 month SE service centre in Ernakulam ( ACCEL Frontline Limited) returned it without correcting the fault.Now I have to use the touchpad to enter phone nos.Shame on SE!

I am facing a problem in my cell phone Sony Ericsson G700. The problem is that it is showing wrong memory..the phone memory is getting used up day by day as i'm using my cell, whether i listen to songs or i click photographs or use any other application!! There are different areas where the memory is used up in the phone memory like:
The camera memory is used up when i click photos and with it Stand by memory also fills but when i delete those photographs camera memory becomes zero but Standy still shows the same incremented value!!!
The problem in my cell is that this standby memory fills. I'm not able to figure out where is this memory utilised?? The memory fills up gradually and consequently the whole 160 mb (phone memory) gets exhausted within no time.
Kindly give a solution o this problem...
I had a lot of problems with this phone..Although, the camera is good enough, but, this phone usualy just freezes up. If your considering buying this phone, better think twice..good day to all
The awakening alarm is not in function when the phone is shut off.Even the first generation mobiles,ten years ago, were ringing to awake you even when they were shut off.
How is it possible for such a high tech mobile not to have this characteristic.
How is it possible that it escaped the mind of the engineers who designed it?
