I bought one of these but after using it in Indonesia I am disappointed. The signal strength is poorer than the last few phones I have owned (including a SE P910i) and dropped calls are fairly common.
The phone is not as usable as the P series phones were with much smaller virtual keyboards and menus do not make as much sense making settings harder to find.
The last straw was when I used the phone on a hot day and a drop of sweat got into the screen and shorted it out so that none of the touch functions worked.
I have replaced the phone with a Nokia E71 and am quite happy with the new one. Great signal strength and clearer voice calls.
Stay away from this model - that is my advice.
(or check it out before you buy it)
- slow outdated processor
- poor reception
- weak battery
- unreliable performance
The price is less than 300 USD in the US and nobody buys them. The production is canceled.
It is relatively new model - total failure!
(C902 is in a similar situation)
I wonder when SE will make a K850 like model again.
i had this phone , really it's very good , nice , maybe sometimes slow but it shows word busy while processing , really good phone maybe the camera not good as 5 megapixel but really nice , i think in buisness use and entairtenment use really very good , i love this phone and i wanna keep it really because it covers manythings makes me happy for carrying this mobophone . if anyone wants to buy a sonyericsson mobile , i suggest this one to him/her , many features , nice , not boring , the main disadvantage really the manual guide didnt contain the whole features in the phone.
Hi... been waiting to get good reviews bout this handset... I've planned buying it since May but still undecided till now. This phone, I think best suits my needs, but I'm gettin' turned-off by bad reviews. But believe me, I'm a little push away from getting one. Any kind words to convince me?

That's the phone first of all! Who will listen the music in offline mode, when someone wants to call you he won't reach you. Unless you are in the plane flying somewhere Get the mp3 player instead.
KCostas, 06 Dec 2008To reduce the battery life, keep you phone switched off all the time! It's not funny.. maybe you an expert.. but not all of reader here as expert as you are.. Grow up man!!
Jessie, 04 Dec 2008WiFi works fine for me. Watch Youtube sometimes when I'm at public places and no lag at all.finally i decided on g900 and hey i got it.i just had a little trouble last nyt on how 2 access my nternet using 3g coz its cheaper here.anyway i figurd it out and now im using it.got wifi signal but fails when i try to connect.other than that im very satisfied with this,just a little botherd coz its made in china sorry 4 that,and d middle of my imei is 02.,think there wud b no prob with ths?
Its really superb. Iam 100% satisfied. No need to read other comments just go and buy it. You will not go for another mobile a couple years.This mobile has most all most all required features.
This is not slow, but it is not fast. Keep the apps that you use often running in the background (e.g. Messaging, Media,...) they wont consume much of the RAM, But you can access them fast. My only problem with this handset is the battery life, it lasts about 2 days with using it frequently.

It's slower by many factors. No complains about that from me. I understand the reasons. It is twice slower even than my second symbian N81 8gb, but i still love my g900, no matter what people say!
can we install programmes on g900 without the phone being connected to pc? my g900 is having problems with opening file folders or installing through pc suit, only i can use the mass storage mode with usb cable, do i need a firmware update?
poor battery performance.
worst is with in 15 days of use the speaker stopped functioning.gave it for service but waiting since 8 days,as there is no stock of the same.

And you can select what file format you want it (Core player) to play, so you can open them through the file manager.
