AM Delhi, 29 Jan 2010Gentelmen, I am really impressed with the features of SE G900 . I have never used any business... moreI have just (About 1 month back) bought this phone cos I trusted Sony with all my heart & soul. But was disappointed how THEY could make such a phone.
I mean, this is a very good phone with fantastic features, one could ask from a smart-phone. But there ARE some really nagging simple issues, which was not expected from the makers like Sony.
My Hands-on Experience:
Good features include instant access to Notes, Text msgs, File Manager.
Internet downloading /browsing is very good.
1)System is very VERY slow. Tends to hang very often. Displays a message that it is restarting for better performance. (WOW,what an excuse. HUH!!)
2)Camera is just OK. Definitely not AS good as a 5 MP digi cam, as they claim. Zoom is excellent but no clarity in zoomed shots.
3)Simple features like call recording during a call is not available, which I did not check thinking it would be available, by default.
4)No option of "Mark Several" in the options of in Messages, Contacts, Media Files (Pics, Songs, VDOs,) etc. Only "Mark All" & "Unmark All". Each file has to be marked separately to delete or move or copy.
5)Cannot add songs from the File Manager to playlists. No option in Playlists either to "Add Media" from memory. Should select each & every song separately to the playlists.
7)Handwriting recognition does not do it as fast as we write. only 1 letter at a time, which takes ages to complete a simple SMS or notes. A BIG "NO THANKS" for this feature, at this speed. We are better off keying-in the message.
7)Battery: is very VERY unlike a Sony-Ericsson. Does not last even for a day. I have used a Sony walkman phone before this. Comparing same usage pattern, battery life is better in that than in this. Does not have Optimized charging facility like other models. Maybe because of the touchscreen option. But who needs a touchscreen without proper backup?
Does not show "Fully Charged" Status after complete charge.
8)You cant choose your own Message Tone.
its really very superb,but camera s not upto d level anyway its seems 2 be very nice,i am satisfied........
Gentelmen, I am really impressed with the features of SE G900 . I have never used any business phone earlier. my earlier one is SE K 750i. Now I wish to buy this product. But with the user review and market survey along with discussion of some technical experts on mobile I understand this product has some issues with its camera / browsing. The product hangs a lot. Battery back is poor etc. I want advice from someone really good with technical understanding regarding above mentioned issues. I shall really be thankful.
Oh My GAWD. This phone has TONS of features. Just what we need.
But there are as many -ve features too.
Some most important features left out for a Hi-END phone as this are:
1) Camera picture quality is NO GOOD, for 5MP camera. (Preview says Cybershot?? No WAY)
2) No Call recording Facility during a call..
3) Processor way too slow for a stuff from SONY stable.
4) After the battery is full after charging, charge-full does not show.
4)It lacks major functionality of a Mobile from 5ony-Ericsson.
Needs a major over-haul.

SE G900 its a very good phone recently only i both the second unite because the earlier unite all ready have some scratches ..dont think a lot to buy this phone first of all question your self whether you have interest or not those you using this phone enjoy the features.....bye
Really not recommendable to buy this phone, many problems like battery back not as promised by co., very slow in processing. I think internal memory is very low bcs i used so many phones but at this price range this is not at all recommendable to have one.
tis is great phone to me....it is most the great phone ever....you could buy now....
peter, u cant connect phone mode via pc? reinstall the driver back on control panel.. and g900 is good phone for me.. just update the firmware, and it will be ok.. sorry for my bad english..
nathardeen, 16 Jan 2010The World worst mobile is G900, I dont understand, why sony manufactured like these type of fo... moreWhat are you talking about, this phone is NOT so bad, I kept it in my hands many times. I admit the G700 is better, but this is a good one too. Some G900 phones has problems, but some phones NOT. If you want to buy one, check it out! Check if the battery will charge, check if you will turn off the phone and turn on, what will happen!
Guys, be smart when you want to buy a phone! :)
very bad handset i had ever used, i want it to throw in a dustbin. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............
.. Yes,. i purchased in KL,...
.. Phone speed Ok with M2-4G Memory Card, only Slow while Transferring files to PC,.
.. Auto Fix the 5MP Photos with the PhotoWise Software will keep the Phone speed at it's Best, minimize the use of Memory Space in MC as well,.
