This is a good phone, it's very handy, especially the notes application. The camera quality is alright but it's definitely not something to be bragging about. It's a phone that has everything but it doesn't really excel in anything... which is basically what I wanted - an overall good, light phone.
I've had it for about 3 months now everything was going well but over the past few weeks it's been acting up. It's been freezing and working slower than usual and the screen doesn't show anything every now and then thus forcing me to reboot. It seems like a software problem but I don't think it is due to the fact that it worked so well for so long. I want to update the firmware but no new firmware has come out for it yet. I'm thinking maybe I dropped it at one point.
I bought it off ebay so I'm going to have to send the phone back to Hong Kong to get it fixed under warranty.
Overall I would say this is a good phone but don't expect it to overwhelm you. It does what it's meant to do and that's about it. Think of it as the C student at a good school.
I was pretty happy with the W810 in terms of speakerphone, sound, camera and the sms layout/details, and overall size & style (almost perfect for me!)...
I've tried the W910 and was very disappointed! Esp with the smsing and speakerphone!
So I would like to know how the G900 compares to the W810... Hope to get valuable feedbacks. thanks!

If SE could not make it correctly with a billion dollar research, warranty, tech support etc. - we certainly can not fix it by leaving smart ... messeges.
It seem you are the type of customer who cares about style (Sony) but do not care about substance( reliability, performance etc.)
- then you ned to live with your choice! Good luck!
kione, 28 Oct 2008does g900 can record video at 30fps? thnxYes it does. It Records video at 30fps.
The flash is not sufficient enough to take good pictures at the least.
Plus, can anyone advice as to how to use the frames, just wanna edit my pic in the gallery. There's no option to edit it if you do .. it only enhances the color, or change the color mode to sepia or black and white but not an option to add a frame into your pic.
please help. thanks!
I have this phone for a week now, on its second day when i pressed the camera button at the side, the camera wont open and the phone hanged so i have to pull the battery out, the third day same thing happened. Would anybody know how i can fix this? I don't want to change phone because generally i like this phone. Thanks!
as far as the comparison to the P1:
P1 is an old model! (reeal cheap these days, totally out dated)
and even when it was in its prime the major complaint was about its slowness - not a big deal to be faster than the P1.
BTW, the G900 has the same CPU - outdated, old one. SE made a huge mistake not to upgrade it!

The G900 is just not a reliable phone in general!
May be a few customer got a decent one but too many people had trouble with this model.
But even a good once do not prodice a decent 5mp picture.
So, you people who are lucky to get a good unit please try to understand your unit do not represent all units. I think it is not a hard concept.
I,ve found out that most of the user opinions here, are wrong. The UI is fast, faster than P1, the loudspeaker is very loud, really loud, the UI is very user friendly, and the camera quality is acceptable, not as good as n95, but good enough to print them. and the battery life is good, not great like my last w910, but it stays up till 2 days with heavy usage.

Tobias, 22 Oct 2008Is it possible to install any type of Gps software on the phone?Yes, you can install Garmin Mobile TX on this phone, if you have a Garmin Bluetooth GPS device, then you can use this software free of charge, except for the map, otherwise you need to buy license to unlock the software so it can use any bluetooth GPS device.
