You are wrong that people won't buy rest of its other models if SE make 1 complete phone. Ppl will have more choices. If you want everything in one phone, you gotta pay the price. All ppl are not as rich as you are and some ppl may not need all features. Look at nokia n95, it got everything and it doesnot mean ppl dont buy other models of nokia.
KCostas, 03 Aug 2008Hi,everyone! I'm SE fun for 10 years now (before just Ericsson). They do the best quality hand... moreJust to mention it works with both wi-fi b and g... My home network is g only and my G900 works perfectly.
Just got this phone in at Carphone warehouse
it is amazing i have been waiting for it since oct 07
does any one know if it coming out on t mobile uk.. many thanks hiren
I'm confused to choose between this phone and LG KU990 Viewty..This phone has lots of feature instead of Viewty, but as I read, for the camera, Viewty is much much better...and what about the value for money? which one is better? honestly I put this phone in my consideration bcos it has WLAN...its WLAN will make me easy to get online anywhere without having to bring my laptop...
Help me pleaaasssseeeee.......I only have one day to decide....reply as soon as possible pleassseeeee.......thank's a lot..
Hi Nevin, if SE come out with 1 perfect phones. Then no one will buy the rest of the models. How is SE going to make money like this?
Just wondering why SE can't combine cybershot & walkman technology to make one perfect phone (sth like nokia n95). That way, phone will have the best camera and sound. SE should learn from other competitors like nokia if it wants to be the leading player in phone market.
KCostas, 03 Aug 2008Hi,everyone! I'm SE fun for 10 years now (before just Ericsson). They do the best quality hand... moreThanks for the great review, just wondering where does everyone install updates for the g900 and install things like divx for it?
Hi,everyone! I'm SE fun for 10 years now (before just Ericsson). They do the best quality handsets. But i'm a symbian person that's why using nokia symbian since the apearence of 6600, because SE smartphones were damn expensive! And look what's at the market now G900 and his small brother! I was waiting it for so long. Posting now using my N81 8gb. My wife was using SE all along her last phone k800 (super photos,super quality handset),she loves it. So I bought G900 for her. Disapointed with photo quality compared to k800,but that's all. No complains about a slow interface (there are tweaks to fix it), no complains about lagging (just upgrade the phone firmware). The phone is full of different features. I love the sticky notes, I love the onscreen qwerty keyboard (you can choose any language for it,all preinstalled, typing with it is very fast) the multitap keyboard is more convenient to use than previous SE (K800 for example), the handwriting recognition works perfect and fast (english only in my phone). That's truly symbian handset, UIQ just spiced up everything. Web browser is awsome, thanks to the touchscreen you can click on anything, just like the PC mouse (even compared to the well know Nokia browser virtual mouse, where you have to click lots of times to get to the place you want). Despite that the wifi is only b standard and not g, the pages open fast. The loudtspeaker is very loud. The equalizers you set in the music player work for every sound (ringtones, video player etc.) -that's realy cool! The phone design is truly SE that's what I like in them, excellent build quality. I love the hardware keylock (very very very useful, just like on my N81). I have already installed the DivX player on G900, smooth playback of divx and xvid movies. Very good display (my nokia has 16 million colours display,but there is no real difference for the eye).
For those who complain.
You guys, never used the Symbian or other smartphones in you life most probably. You are used to the fast interface of the java phone. Those who had the smartphones can be patient with their phones and apreciate the step SE took for the masses. G900 rocks!
Where is video resolution and fps? Where is CPU speed? You don't provide full technical specification!!
Can someone please tell me how the sound (music) quality compares with the w890i? trying to decide between those two phones. Like the 890 but is a bit small and might fall out of my pocket so am considering the g900 for its features and better cam but need to know about music sound quality.

help,can someone tell me how to close 3g on my g900,thanks in advance..
I had the HTC Diamond for about 2 days. It is a dainty girly phone. Hated it. My Sony G900 has drawback of slow interface (8gb memory stick helped a bit)and the camera is just OK. So, the Sammy i8510 will be on my desk just as soon as it's released!
faster cpu also means higher power consumption, i think this is what SE had in mind when using the same ARM9 cpu for this phone
After all my bad experiences with G900, below, does anyone knows good things or bad about this web: http://www.diversitydepotinc.com/sony-ericsson-c905.html where i am planning to get c905i for EU market (not C905c or C 905a)…or this web: http://www.metrocellinc.com/sony-ericsson-c905.html
..i need new quad bend smart phone (or similar) phone badly after bitter-sweet experience with my 2 G900.Thanks to all !
So I've had my brown/black G900 for about 3 weeks now...
It kinda falls short of what I was expecting (I bought it for 350 Euros). The phone is overall slower than most competitors; opening a message requires patience. Using the touchscreen really slows the phone down so I've resorted to using the D-pad (which is disappointing since I could have bought an E51 for 2/3 the price, but went for the G900 for its touchscreen)
Camera is actually pretty good, 5MP shots suck, but just resize them to 3MP and the look good, the touch focus makes rly cool shots too, however, the LED can't take a bright picture in the dark even if the users life depended on it.
The browser is handy, infact its the only thing I truly like about this phone.
To be honest i think I'm just going to pawn the thing on ebay and buy something else.
IF, and only IF you have the chance to buy this phone for under 300EUR I would say go for it, otherwise walk away... unfortunately the idea of having a small, capable, touchscreen and wi-fi enabled device will remain an idea for the forsee-able future...
Shame really... but its put me off SE, unless they come up with something really revolutionary I just see them following Motorola down the drain.
