Battery Life: Stand-by Up to 400 h
Talk time Up to 10 h. But i found stand-by time only up to 48h and talk time only up to 2h. By the way, video pixel so bad, most worst than W580 and W850. Internet connection so slow, power on take more time, sometime hang. This G705 really worst, I'm so regret and disappointed to brought this handphone.
The appointment reminder only do a tiny "beep" and vibrate.
Is there a way to make the reminder louder or select ring tone or make it auto repeat the reminder.
JoJo, 30 Jan 2009I bought my g705 few week ago. I like the phone so much because is look cool. I having a fe... moreHi I've got this phone and have the same problems with battery life - without any use just get 2 days on standby 48hrs nowhere near the advertised 400hrs!
Just got this phone, is no bad, is one of the best so far. I know people had complained about the quality of the slider, i guess none of you had a Nokia 5300 that looks like Fisher Price made it. G705 is pretty good, but i do agree with some of you, the camera stinks!! i had a K850i before this one , so it really bothers me not having the picture quality. Anyway my next step is the C905 , when it drops at least to 350$ or at least 400$ in 2015 i guess.
i need information sbout G705
if my phone connect to pc, and then savely remove hardware.
why i can stil open phone file in explore?
I own the pretty G705 almost three months now and I want to share my experiences to others:
- Solidly manufatured, precious finish
- pretty design
- Pretty good display
- Slide-Mechanism reliable and stable
- Extended Bluetooth (multiple simultaneous connections possible)
- Beautiful view of newsfeeds
- Incomplete and incorrect instructions
- Support useless and incompetent
- Uncontrolled Internet-DialUpl/Data connection
- Sync Function / ActiveSycn does not work
- Faulty telephone conference function
- Poor voice quality
- Integrated Speaker is bad (hands-free talking impossible)
- Silver / lacquer buttons to scroll from
- Keyboards notchy, poor ergonomics
- No full support for handsfree (SE HCB 150)
- Slow processor, navigation notchy
- System crashes and slow reboot
- cumbersomely switch to Flight Mode
- Docking station / charger connection (CDS-75) notchy/ refractory
- Power settings can not adapted
- Wayfinder navigation software is only 30 days trial
- Useless camera (no flash, miserable quality recording)
- Moderate browser
- Slow and unreliable automatic screen-tilting
- Integrated media support insufficient
To make it short, I can recommend this phone anyone. Neither private users, yet professional. By looking pitted controls (paint peeling from), the G705 does not aesthetic requirements. Due to faulty communication functions (no telephone conference, no ActiveSync), it is unsuitable for business use.
Given the positive attributes are self explanatory, I will not dwell on it received. Some of the listed negative qualities but need further explanation.
The flight mode is inaccessible because it can only be achieved when the phone restarts. Anyone who flies a lot, the phone alone, do not like.
The guide beggars all description. Although it is in all languages, but who needs it anyway? More important is the fact that neither the icons displayed in the phone explained, yet this self-explanatory. One can only guess, and often is confused, not just whether something is running that you do not want. Basic features are only superficially described, if you encounter serious problems, can be found in the manual does not help. The Sony Ericsson support is there but not much better. You get bland-lump answers in a "look at the website for" or "download the latest system software" (neither is the support site with detailed / helpful, yet there has been new system software). Whoever having problems with the Sony Ericsson G705, is on its own.
Who the phone with RSS feeds / subscribe to news, will be experiencing the wonders of blue, because a restriction to "local connections" as its own wireless LAN, will be offered, it works but not so continuously for Internet-Einwahl/Datenverbindung costs incurred. At 5 subscribed feeds were with me within two months, at least about 300 euros!
Also on the topic news feeds fits is not customizable power saving setting. The screen darkens after 20 seconds and then it is to read over, unless you press a button to set the phone to resuscitate.
Active Sync was on my G705 not get the service record. I previously used the Sony Ericsson P1i, which is after initial software update with the same settings as in the G705 now easily worked. Again, no help from Sony Ericsson support. And after three months still no software update that some of the "teething problems" would eliminate.
The function of telephone conferences to lead will be offered, but it does not. It can simultaneously select different Gespärchspartner, but unfortunately, the Verbingungspartner then not to attend a conference together.
The kit I angeschaft since integrated speakers G705 flawed. He is quiet and scheppert. One understands the caller just bad. Unfortunately, the Sony Ericsson G705 but not easily with the handsfree HCB 150 together. Although the pairs work / connect easily, but calls can not be free from the start or be adopted, otherwise the sound is automatically transferred to your phone is. This brings the need for and the actual function of the free, ad absurdum.
Overall, the Sony Ericsson is responding too slowly G705, which is probably on the weak processor, or a poorly programmed software system is due. Who is a small Add-On A charging (eg, CDS-75), will not be too much joy to her, because the phone is sideways in the contacts made and the charging can not be easy to solve. Is the G705 in the charging station, the receiving of calls to be patient sample, because the phone is because of the idiotic mounted connector is simply not fast enough from the charging station can be removed.
After only three months of use, a list of significant deficiencies resulting length. If there would be only minor unattractive, you could still turn a blind eye, but there are significant costs ('s years of accumulated / anticipated 1200th - Euro) and important features such as ActiveSync, conferences, Handsfree are unusable.
This phone is the empty promise materialized! I strongly advise: Don't purchase!
Anonymous, 06 Feb 2009does it hav auto focusNo auto focus, but picture quality is not too bad really.
k, 05 Feb 2009Is GPS service itself on this phone free? (not mentioning internet charges for downloading maps).GPS is always free no matter what the device. It's turn-by-turn navigation and maps that you have to pay for.
