I've been reading this comments section and forums for months and I got it yesterday.
Love the slim design and dark brown colour.
The phone starts of a little slow, but speeds up the more you use it, if it doesn't just download an update and it will speed up.
Camera isn't the best but for a smart phone it is good enough, so i don't know why everyone is complaining. I didn't buy the phone for the camera, its just an added bonus.
Lots of features easy to get used to, love the music player.
Connected the wifi to my router and used the browser flawlessly. Very fast in loading and youtube is very smooth with quick loading.
Overall very good phone.
I was hesistant to buy it because of the many bad reviews, but i went for it, and im glad i did.
Phone design 9/10
Touch screen 8/10
Overall realy good phone and i have so many apps qued for install into this phone. Great capabilities.
Overall rating 8.5/10
Got an email yesterday from someone within SE...
The G900 is being regarded as a flop (unsurprisingly) and there are plans to redeem this with a replacement phone (same dimensions with NEW camera module... FASTER processor... possibly metallic surfaces)
Set for christmas release, obviously the price will reflect the improvements... (save up :P )
maybe SE can win us back?
NIK, 29 Aug 2008try to download latest update for g900 an camera will be betterWhen Download the update Software does it make you to lose the Applciations downlaoded I have bought so far?
hi g900 s the great... compare to g700 and g900 .. g700s camera quality s superb . y g900 s like tat i dont know both r same resolutions while g900 s 5 mp....
i got this phone one month ago the net speed very good via wifi but the phone hangs off once in a while
this phone is great, i dont understand why people are complaing soo much, ffs its a smart phone and evryone complainin about the camera, listem go get a flippin phone designed for camera function, e.g samungs, se c905, c902. so stop moanin u geeks...
for the g900 turn on the transitions in the settings, suns much smooth, also people complain about ifi, get a good router, cos mines very swift, efficient
and as for the htc diamond, thts a load of crap, so slow, gets too hot at the back, poor camera, no flas or anything. b7ut as i said a smart phone is not for camera use!!!!!
I agree further down with Mohammed Rash, the phone is nice, design is good and fits snuggly in your hand. But for a 5Mp camera phone it is awful. I was at my friends house yesterday and he has the Nokia 6220 Classic 5Mp phone, we compared like for like shots and his came out clearer and with much more detail and colour and brightness. Please be aware the professionals that reviewed this lied as far as i'm concerned, this camera is poor in low light conditions and even with ALL the highest settings and flash ON its still dull and poor. I've had this phone for 2 weeks now and I'm selling it I mainly bought it based on the reviews how misinformed I was. The touchscreen aspect of the phone is good and it has alot of plusses about it, but the camera is a massive let down, so if you are buying this phone for the camera, then make sure you live in Australia or anywhere where there is ALOT of sun and good lighting conditions because if you are in England where I am.... DONT BUY IT... you have been warned!!!
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2008you got a slow connection not because of wifi or your connection, its just the phone doesnt ha... moreI have this phone now for more than 6 weeks and have no problem. I do not see it being slow and very easy to use. This is my first Sony phone and very happy. The Battery Life is great. I go to USA and come back for 3 weeks and my phone was still full charge whe ngot back to Thailand. So, on standby did not lose any power for 3 weeks. Great.
can someone help me with my screen i cant use my stylus on the screen!
kowloon, 25 Aug 2008I got this phone two days ago and I found it slow and really bad in internet surfing via WIFI ... moreyou got a slow connection not because of wifi or your connection, its just the phone doesnt have any hsdpa, (a feature of a phone w/c will allow you to download the site faster)
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2008Anyone know why this phone isn't available direct on O2 in the uk? Really want it but so annoy... morei just ordered my one of mobiles.co.uk on O2. Hopefully ill have it by friday.
Anyone know why this phone isn't available direct on O2 in the uk? Really want it but so annoyed I will probs get the c905 - www.c905.org.uk for anyone interested - instead as it will probs be out on O2 before the G900.
Finally got my G900. Everything looks ok. But then as expected the cam is bad. k750i and k800i has much better quality. Phone is a bit lagging. Need to explore more.
To be honest I like the size and shape of G 900 ,but one thing I can say is the camera is not that good ,even though its 5 Mp, the pic is not that clear and bright. And the button for the camera dosent work at all times. And one big fault for this phone is when some one calls u ,u the caller is unable to hear u and the line gets cut. This problem happens often.Due to this reason i sold my new G900 within one month of use.
kowloon, 25 Aug 2008I got this phone two days ago and I found it slow and really bad in internet surfing via WIFI ... moreMy one is doing good. Did u try to download the latest SW? My previous SW had issues with photo camera. It was not able to start the camera. I updated latest SW, now everything is working fine. Internet surf with wifi is also good, just drains battery quicker. I compared the speed to my P1i, this looks a bit faster and more responsive. But I still find P1i's display better. It was 5mm wider on both x & y.
