SE G900 really get on my nerves already with all the crashing things it does. I bought this G900 last June 2008 then after a week it started to crash down. Problems like, invalid SIM, no access to network, corrupted memory, slow interface, does not follow what you intend to do like if you want to use this ringtone, then after, another ringtone is played... and so on...(i can't count them). the worst thing is that it needs to be update always. Thou I updated it always, still all of this problems occurs. Im not saying the problems occur per week but every hour of it especially when i am using it. My boss in my work even scolded me due he can not contact me... invalid SIM Card reflects on my phone. What even annoying is that, it is so expensive... what a waste on money. I really hope SE can do something regarding this rather than producing in effectively...
I'm in AUS and I recently purchased a G900 brown from HK grey market. I've own many phone brands, including smart, symbian etc....and I must say I'm pretty impressed considering UIQ is now dead in the water. I updated the phone via SE suite. it updated the phone with a UK/HK customized update from memory...The phone hasn't crashed, runs smooth and does everything i need it to do, including WLAN, games etc...I do agree to some point that battery life, camera are bit disappointing, but overall I give it the thumbs UP! speed of the phone is average, was hoping for bit more grunt, but like i said it's smooth! even with a couple of apps running in the background. Its not that more bulky/weight to my W890i. You get used to it. Screen brightness during the day is good, as long as you set it to 75% or more. I've put a 4G sandisk memory and it's working great! Sound is LOUD and EXCELLENT. SE has always done well here. If you had allot of time and patience, you could customize the phone to really suit your needs and daily tasks, even the open office and PDF work great with my files. The touch screen and mark pen take time in getting used to, the touch screen rarely doesn't respond the 1st time, but that could be me being dumb. I could go on, but i'm sure i'm all boring you....so out of 10 I give it a solid 8.
just bought this phone last week...but now the speaker is defective...why such ericsson allow to manufacture their unit in g.wall...not good..im not enjoying this phone...anybody wants to buy my phone here in kingdom...2Riyals only...much prepare to buy E51...
This is a slowest phone ever!!!! especially whey you are trying to apply theme, you have to wait for 1-2 minutes before the theme applying process will be done. Picture quality of this phone is bad, image taken by this phone always appeared cloudy or over expose. No need to mention 5mp since is a bit non sense for this type of image quality. Aside form above mentioned, this bar was still considered a nice phone. All keys, and "touch screen" buttons are very responsive, music quality not bad and have a really "LOUD" speaker. And im having fun writing on sticky notes, is a very useful application when you need to drop down important notes but you don't have writing materials with you.
NK, 06 Nov 2008The latest SE phone is more worst then the old model! This G900 is failure phone! 5mp camera w... moreSE phones with BAD image processor:
as all of these have the same image processing software.
take note that image processing is as important as the lens used.
that's why C905 is the best 8mp phone since SE revamped their image processing software. nice work SE.
@anonymous- so you only need a 5mp and doesn't need an 8mp camera phone? have you also thought of that a few years ago when the highest resolution is 2mp? will you stick to 5mp cameraphone FOREVER?! if you think 5mp is "decent" enough, think again buddy. i bet you also told yourself a few years ago that you only need a 2mp cameraphone when there's no 5mp cam phones around. lolz.
The latest SE phone is more worst then the old model! This G900 is failure phone! 5mp camera with flash, bad photo colour and image resolution, system unstable at all and need to update but hang again, price high, design no good, keypad handling no good and many many more....totally failure design.
I've had the g900 for around 2 months now and I'm quite satisfied with it. I'm having a few problems though with the media player and the memory card. I cant open the folders in the memory card from my computer and the media player takes random pictures from the photos in my memory card for album art. Sp then I tried searching for new media, hoping that it'll fix the problem but then many photos and music end up disappearing in the media player. I also tried formatting the memory card but I'm still having the same problem, and now in the "music" section of the media player, my 'artists' and 'albums' are still there even though the actual songs aren't there anymore. Can anyone please help?
This is Very Very Good Phone & Good Camera , Every Thing is There..................

I have said it months ago - G900 is a total failure!
Just like W890!
W902 has a chance but SE priced it so high it is ridiculous.
Not to mention, SE phones have high SAR values - more and more research show that it makes a difference to choose phones with lower SAR value.
Sony Ericsson have stopped producing the G900 (presumably this is only temporary) due to surplus stock,
Read: not selling...
Plenty of better phones out there
Just thought you should know
BopZ, 30 Oct 2008NIK, there is predictive text, but only if u type normally.
u can use handwriting recog if u ... moreThanks BopZ... that helps quite a bit. But i still have my qualms on getting this phone even tho i've been eyeing it for MONTHS before it came out. Been too many reviews on it hanging and running slow after some time. Not great reviews on the functions of the cam and batt life either.
Perhaps i'll just wait a while and see if they fix up this model later on and release a new one... I don't wanna get disappointed with another SE phone again..
BopZ, 01 Nov 2008it depends really if you want a camera phone, go for c902 anything else g900, hehe g900... morei have g900 the battery is bad or phone eating all resourses its just one day... but they writing that its works for a long time... maybe i have to change some properties? answer me in email email@example.com
Coby, 03 Nov 2008Hi guys, just got my G900 today, I have a little hard time on using this phone, since this is ... moreYou are totaly right about the picture quality. Nevermind 5 mpx, since it's not targeted for taking photos like Cybershot series. But videos are relatively good. (better then previous SE).
Hi guys, just got my G900 today, I have a little hard time on using this phone, since this is my first sony ericsson smart phone, but not bad, I like it. Anyways, i have a very big question, I do owned several SE phones before like w800, k800 etc. And the picture quality of mentioned models are really good. But I noticed the camera of G900 are not as good as those with k800 or any other SE camera phones. It is normal of a SE smart phone? Or my G900 has a problem? Pls advice me. Thanks!!!
Ahmad khidr, 31 Oct 2008k850 or g900?? pls help thanksobvious g900 lor. lol
johndru, 01 Nov 2008not really... G900 uses ARM9 to increase battery life. N96 also uses this cpu.. look at n82.it... moreas far as C905:
I do not need a 8Mp camera in my phone. A decent 5mp is more than enough.
While for me a 20mmm thickness and with that having a lousy keypad is total turn off.
Another problem with the C905 is the battery! 930mAh!
So, this is a big huge brick with relatively small screen and lousy keypad. (No touch screen!)
I prefer a decent smart phone than this thick camera.
For 2009 , I think most people need a good smart phone with a decent camera.
The G900 with its 200MHz CPU is a joke!
(not mentioning the bugs!)
