I agree with David in respect of the phone is great early on, 3 months I disagree, more 1-2 months as you realise the official reviews are total nonsense and they have been given heavy financial incetives to give a good review of the phone to sell it!!
They rate the camera on this phone, yes in the day its brilliant, at night or even when the sun is about to go down and the light isnt at its best, the pics are all dark, the flash goes way b4 the pic is snapped, (Sony E can't fathom this out!) transferring pics from mobile to PC via the suite that comes with it is a painful task, took me exactly wait for it 1 min 32 secs for 1 pic from phone to PC, my nokia N73 same pic as a test 4 seconds, yes FOUR SECONDS, the GSM900 is my first SE phone and will be the last, they are no good, it is slow, it came with a memory card, thats ok. I like the design of this phone and i bought it for the touch screen novelty as well as the 5 Megapixel camera, overall its poor, very very very poor, DO NOT BELIEVE the official reviews because they are given monetary incentives to give a GOOD opinion of the phone, just read the reviews below here.... EVERYONE cannot be wrong can they? Not sure where GSM Arena get their reviews but people need to stand up and be counted and LYING to people isnt acceptable!! I'm going back to Nokia as my N73 wipes the floor with the Sony Ericsson and they have a rubbish 256K colour screen, nokia boasts 16 million and their colours are vibrant, also when they test SE's v Nokia's they show a closeness in pic res in the day.... I challenge them to take pics in dark places and post them on here against the Nokia, I bet you they will have a separate flash in the background when taking them because SE's dont take pics in low lit area's, the Nokia's of a like will BURY the SE's hands down. Also look at the second hand prices Nokia retain a good resale value, my GSM900 mint condition 6 month old can only go for £130 adn i bought it for £300 Offline!
Its like Volkswagen vs Ford, DONT BUY A FORD resale value is pants!!
Overall, I advise DONT BUY THIS PHONE, Sony Ericsson phones are really and truly POOR!!!!
i got it from 2 monthes ago , really its very bad mobile, very slowly , the cam is not great , i hate it very much
Has anyone managed to use this fone for more than six months? Its awesome the first three but just turns out to be absolute GARBAGE. I've seen 5 year old N series fones still working great. So of all the people who are happy with this fone, please let me know if you have managed more than six months with no major problems. Then maybe i will consider trying another unit since they have been really priced low now - they are actually now cheaper than G705 which is not a smartphone.
