I have been using this phone for more than 2 years now. It's really the first phone I bought immediately at its launch. I had done an extensive 2-month research before buying and can say that it has served me well.
The screen did give some problems a year and a half after I bought it. Thankfully, I had extended my warranty into the 2nd year. Replacement parts would have been exhorbitantly expensive.
What I don't like:
A. Slow processor. I bought a nokia E60 4 years ago and it had 208MHz processor. G900 has only 200 and it was 2.5 years ago! Phone will start to slow down loading the many pics and songs that I put in there. Phone will also be a lot slower if its internal 128MB is occupied more than half.
B. No 3.5mm audio jack. The converter is a hassle as the connection tends to get loose.
C. Poor picture colours with the camera.
D. Taking notes on Microsoft Word in the phone tends to be slow. The screen can't keep up with my typing speed. A workaround solution was to type in Notes, then copy and paste into Word.
E. Sony bug that plagues phones with hanging and resetting. I'm thinking it's due to not enough RAM or processing speed.
What I do like:
1. Notes function that's simple and handy for doodling.
2. Best of cybershot functions (unfortunately, not the colors) e.g. paranoma, multishot, flash, etc.. and Walkman functions (Super Bass) in a PDA phone. Good music player that has really decent sound.
3. Wifi. Back then, this was really important to save on data charges. Those days, not many had wifi and were slim.
4. Slim and small with so many functions. Many people were surprised when I took out the stylus. They weren't expecting it.
All in all, it did match up to my expectations of an upgrade to E60. It's still going strong enough to keep me from upgrading. I'm looking at the E7 to be the replacement for this phone as it is the similar business phone with everything else as a bonus on it.
i used this g900 since last one year and this phone sucks! donont use this i got refund from the service center
