Daedalus, 08 Dec 2008got it from timtechs.com 299usd for the phone. to the other guy, the earphones are good but... moreJust to share my opinion with you guys. If earpiece does really matter to you, you can use a w-series earpiece on your G705 and turn on the Mega-Base. It sounds quite good to me. Of course the sound quality of W705 is more clear than G705 as W705 is meant for music. But my experience on G705 telling me that the sound quality is as good as my existing W880i which is quite ok to me. In short, earpiece itself shouldn't be the main factor to consider for buying G705.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2008can anyone tell me which one is better g705 or w705?I believe it's depending on what you need. If you are walkman phone fans and prefer to some sort crystal music with 4G memory and metalic silver/red, then go for W705. If you like black/Gold and prefer to have aGPS with only 1G, then go for G705. In terms of software and hardware, they are almost identical. So it's totally personal preference. However, W705 is only available early next year. To me, I prefer black with silver lining around and come with aGPS, wifi, youtube, 1 button music player and FM receiver. The most important thing to me is Java rather than O/S base which I believe it's not so easy to get hang. I think it's good enough for me for general usuage and different purposes. Some tips for you. If you wanna improve the music quality, you may buy a W-series earpiece separately or just use back your old earpiece from W-series. I use back my earpiece, sync wire, charger and even the battery from my existing W880i. They are totally compatible. Enjoy your new toy, mate :)
David, 08 Dec 2008I'm really dissapointed by this phone. I love the feature set except the lack if auto focus. I... moreIf you need a very good photo shooting with wifi, I strongly suggest C905 which comes with 8MP.
Each serie of phone has its own strong point. G serie does not mean for photo shooting. You may seriously consider C serie instead.
thinkwillbuy, 13 Dec 2008i have a question about youtube,,this phone has already an application for youtube, does it me... moreNo, you don't need to use 3G. In other words, as long as you are connected by using WIFI, you can anytime use the youtube and watch the video clips. You may ask how do you know whether you are using 3G or wifi when you are watching youtube. If you are using 3G to watch youtube, you will see an internet icon which looks like a blue ball on top. In other words, if you are watching youtube without this icon, means you are using wifi.
it looks very nice and black it shines like a star !

chito, 30 Nov 2008hello guys just to let everybody know that i just grab the phone as i decleared some time ago,... moreI just got this phone. I used to have a w810. Chito, someone, PLEASE help me figure out how to make it so that the clock shows up without having to slide the phone open. I press the side buttons (volume), but the screen only shows shadows of the clock and missed call icons, etc. It appears like a hologram would. I can't see the clock clearly at all and I'm so used to doing so with the w810. I don't want to go back to wearing a watch...

After that you will not face the hang or black out problem anymore.
one question for people who actually OWN the phone. Can you talk with the phone closed coz i noticed the mic is actually covered over with the phone closed - does this affect mic quality?

kingston, 14 Dec 2008g705 got any flash at the camera?yes, there is a flash n i think it's good
g705 got any flash at the camera?
i have a question about youtube,,this phone has already an application for youtube, does it mean i can watch videos anytime on it?? so it's like i'm connected to an internet.?
Had this phone past 1 months. A few advises for whoever wish to purchase.
1) beautiful outlook. slim to hold however the back cover is made of plastic
2) keypads are soft and easy to handle
3) soft ringtones although i have put to max volume 8
4) lousy music bass and has no stereo speakers. music sounds the same even though using the ear pieces
5) after typing the sms, the phone hangs & blank off when choosing contact list.
These are just purely my feedbacks on this phone. So i do not encouraged anyone to get this model. My personal view is go for W760 (at least it is a walkwan series or look forward for W705 which is coming in next quarter.
sivaji, 12 Dec 2008you are 100% correctYes its true
