This phone really lousy. The touch screen everytime kept on hanging. The life of the battery was so short. Please reconsider others model such as Nokia or Motorola..
Really slow phone.... crashes often...take a long time to boot... if you try to open unsupported media files phone crashes...all features included as a name.. not working properly... when opening contact list always last contact saved screen appears n then disappears.. Wifi works fine speed also OK..browser is OK.. Better to by any other phone... i like sonyericsson.. but not this one..
best se ive used so far.. unlocked unbranded generic world 1 only crashed once so far camera is not good tho, believe me, for camera n82 is way better, but i dont care, touchscreen ALL THE FKN WAY! And W T F is this BS about the sound volume being LOW?!?!?! WHAT THE .... WAY LOUDER than ANY device I've ever used without using teh sound mod! TIP IF SLOW reboot daily and wait for it to load completely at startup even if it shows the icons wait 30 sec than its very fast!
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2009Could any one please final all the comments here becuase i have plan to buy this phone since i... morebelieve me , do not buy this phone,
I had read all the reviews and despite many comments on the speed and performance I bought it due to the high specification of this phone , but after a while i found that the comments were correct, even my very simple Nokia 6230 phone was much better,
believe me the specifications is just nice on the paper. with such scpecification there is no phone in this price range, specially wifi . but after buying you will notice that you can not use them due to the bad performance of the phone.
Though the phone is loaded with features and functions, the stability and reliability are way below expectations.
My phone is only 6 months old and since I've upgraded its SW to the latest release from SE web site, the phone keeps on crashing and restarting on its own.
Each time it crashes, I have to remove the battery and start it again and usually it doesn't work from first time.
In addition, the phone is too slow and the display keeps fading out and darkens while the resolution decreases.
Also, when I made a backaup of my phone before upgrading its SW, the restore of this backup failed and I lost all my data.
SE support are so bad and each time I sent the phone for repair it was not fixed and it seems they only re-installed it SW while probably the problem is with the firmware or hardware.
Not a bad phone though. I've got one and its quite impressive. My friend who's got an Xperia x1 is quite impressed with its features.
True, its slow and does hang a couple of times but I can understand.
I not happy with the camera. A g502 does better.
before buying this phone
put in your mind that in the first days it will work with out problems
screen can easily go out
it get stuck to much
and lots and lots of problems
worst SE phone
Dont buy it
Nobody is offering Document Editor at this price. I guess this feature alone outclass all other phone of the same range. I am using this phone from last seven months and I didnot face any critical issue yet. Camera is good, Wifi works perfectly, sound quality is good...what else we can ask for. At the end we have to remember that we are using a man-made machine which can breakdown anytime.
Yeah the phone is slow not very slow but slow it is.I'v got for about...7 months and i'm not satisfied.The main reason for my unsatisfaction is one really stupid error,when i turn it off and turn it on again displey becomes monochomatic and it wont work unlles you touch middle button.Belive me many people have got the same proble check on YT!!!
Could any one please final all the comments here becuase i have plan to buy this phone since it has alot features which i like such camera and the touch screen thing. And Could any one tell me how to update the phone software. Please list the link if possible. Thanks
g900 isn`t really that good. i dropped it like 3-4 times and the camera just got loose. It's not really working that well anymore and it hasn't even been a year yet. It's actually kinda laggy too, but touchscreen is much better than regular phones.
I dont satisficated of G900,my problem,,touchscreen hang and speed very bad,,,then repair in sony have 3 week...and when repair the other man have the same problem with me, the lcd is dirty and have 3 week repair so bad .help me sony...i always use u produck then G900 I,,,sappointed,,,,(north sumatra) Indonesia.
for me, g700 is better than g900! forget the wifi, we have a laptop at home.....
rsgarcia888, 25 Jul 2009which one is better.... this sony ericcson G900 or Nokia 5630 Xpress Music???
Hi, do not buy this phone, GO for Nokia Express music, I have G900 for about two and half months, it is extreemely slow, some times shut down and some tiomes it hangs. the camera is awful, th epicture quality is worse than my previous nokia 6230 with 1.3 mp camera.
G900 is the worst phone I have ever had. I am just thinking of the cost that i have paid and thinking about how to sell it!! because i can not lie to the buyers of my phone the reason that i am selling it.
it has many good features but due to the low speed you can not use them, furthermore the camera is too weak and 5 MP is just a kidding from SE. when you get the film with its camera it stops while getting the film and you are not sure it continues or has stopped. I even updated teh software two times but there is no difference.
I have this phone for almost a year now. 1st i like that this is not so flashy to the eye, you would consider this just a ordinary phone. But its packed with features.
I do experience the slowness of the phone, but you have to system update this to be bit faster.
It can handle 4Gb mem, no problem with that.
5.0mp Cam is better than 1.3mps. but its having difficulty with night. Have to adjust the settings.
Loud speak works great also. louder than the music express of nokia, me and a friend tested it she has the nokia and with same music mine is louder.
Navigation is also easy.
Touch screen is a bliss. I've used various touch screen phones and i think this is the best. It response perfectly to each press.
The down fall that i could think is that not all of the features can be navigated by the keys. alot of the features can be activated/run by touch screen.
-if in any case the touch screen would be broken, you can't access some features.
Features is generally good: 5MP camera with flash, IMAP/POP email, Blackberry & Wifi, eventhough there is no GPS. But speed is very bad, it is too slow to open contact, messaging & other apps freshly. Antenna is indeed weak, compared to my Nokia 6233. Personally for me, the touch screen overcomes SE unpleasant UI ( I was Nokia user).
For map application, I use Google Maps for its cell-based location and WayFinder Earth (not Navigator) for offline map.
