After use of this phone in a personal capacity for around a month now I have found the phone is a brilliant piece of equipment, it is at a low enough price to make it obvious it is a mid-range affordable phone and it fits that bill, it carries out everyday tasks without an issue and I would recommend this to anyone interested in buying a phone.
Working with a mobile phone repair centre I come across every phone on the market and their faults and this is the first one I have not.
My only complaint is that being a man I sometimes hit other buttons on the keypad but this does not take away from the fact this phone does exactly what it says on the box and a little bit more.
at this price, I believe this handset is really awesome... cheap enough for features nad performance that we get.... it's my cell phone which I like a lot.... for note: I've already have another cell phone...
@rajesh: yeah the speaker output on the phone is very average and its not distorted or anything like how you say. Its not as loud as you get in nokia phones like 5130 express music phone. If you are looking too much into loud ring tones from this phone then its not possible. I feel its like average loudness only. I dont find this a big issue because I mostly have the phone on silent. Hope i've given clear answers to your questionss. Btw i'm replying through my mobile now and the browsing is quite fast on this phone. The browser that came with the phone is not so great. I'm using opera mini and its simply rockin! Good day fellas!
I have been using this phone for the past 20 days.. Believe me friends, Its Awesome Mobile at this Price..!!

Anand Shankar, 25 Jan 2010Hi all. I bought Naite J105i fone for 6500 from an exclusive sony showroom this jan 18th. so h... moreAnand, thanks for the elaborate review. But You never mentioned the music output through the phone's speakers, which I was searching in every review here... Pls tell me, how loud is the music through loudspeaker? And how about mp3 ringing loudness?
In some SE models, the mp3 tones are heard a bit shrilled with treble while the phone RING. Is it so in Naite? I am very concerned about the mp3 ringing loudness. Thnx in advance for the reply.
Also have you tried HPM-62 headset? It gives awsome ouput through W395.
asepsr, 23 Jan 2010the code *#0000# only works on nokia handset the others no.What about Sony ericsson , does *#0000# works in sony ericsson handsets as well

Hi all. I bought Naite J105i fone for 6500 from an exclusive sony showroom this jan 18th. so hope this info ios of use to u guys. I dont think i need to elaborate too much on the specs bcos by now most users would have posted such news here already.I would like to thank hemanth a lotttt for his extensive detailed reviews and i totally support his review . His review was posted during 3rd week of december i think. very good one! and he's given a very fair review. I went for this mobile especially for this threaded messaging feature (the messaging is like a chat window- if u want u can activate this feature on ur naite fone too!). The camera quality was surprisingly good. as long as the subjects are in well lit places the photos look very good.So the Megapixel count does not matter too much i guess.
The phones inbuilt browser comes pretty handy to start easily but it loads pages a bit slowly. i use Opera mini with the phone and it loads pages quite quickly.I use airtel gsm so ur experience may vary depending upon ur cellphone operator.
From the reviews i read i set myself very high expectations. So i was little disappointed. But hey common! i just couldnt keep my hands off the phone and still it lasted for a little more than one and half days. I listened to music for nearly 4 hours , average messaging and calls once a while during this one and half day time, which , i think is like pretty decent for this phone.
AUDIO CLARITY :
When i used HPM-82 and hpm-77 with my own philips in ear phones, i got unbelievably,out of this world clarity. I am this kinda guy who is very particular about clarity of the headphones. TO me highs low and mids should be well covered by the earfones. so i used SHE9700[6Hzto23500hz 16ohms] philips earbuds with the naite-handfree combo. I got unbelievably good output. The phone proves to be a surprise for those who are craving for that "bass-punch" effect!
EQUILISER in the phone is worth mentioning about. The BASS and MEGABASS gives the best bass boost.I also own a apple nano which fails to give me that bass punch that i want! [the bass booster or rock setting on the ipod only gives me distorted output]
I tested the handsfree hpm82 with my bulky sony monitor and sienhieser PMX60 and PX100 and i realised the bass reproduction was distortion free and inspite of the fact that the wire length was so long the phone managed to deliver enough power to give a good output on your headphones!
READ AHEAD IF U NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE PROBLEMS I FACED WITH HPM82 HANDSFREE OR IF U ARE CONSIDERING BUYING HPM82 WITH THIS PHONE.
The music with the supplied headfone was very far from average. so i went for the headset HPM-82 which has a control for changing the song and vol control too! And like mostother handsfree it lets me connect myown headfones. Since i wanted no compromise on the audio clarity i bought an original handsfree from sony world for Rs1549 about a week after the phone was bought.
A WORD OF CAUTION!: this headset didnt work well with my phone. The headset works well with S500 and w580i and otrher phones but not on this(naite aka j105i) one!
THE PROBLEM: when im listening to songs suddenly the handsfree icon on th phone disappears for a few seconds (say 5 to ten seconds) and playback would stop. It will ask u "Resume playback through speakers?" Then again the handsfree icon would comeback after which u HAVE to press the play button to resume button on the handsfree to resume playback! This gets on my nerves very often. This happes also during when i am on a call. Especially for the first 30seconds when im on a call using handsfree it would occour a lot. The handfree appreas and disappears. The above said interrupting problem occours a lot when u are simultaneously listening to songs and browsing.
WHY I AM SURE OF INCOMPATIBILITY:
I checked the handsfree with other mobiles and conducted a range of extensive tests to see if the same problem occours. BUt the handsfree worked like an angel with s500 and w580i.
I also wanted to make sure if there was any problem with my ten day old phone's connector. The phone did NOT show any such problems when i used the handsfree supplied with the phone(MH300) and HPM-77.
I surfed the net for possible solution. There was one guy who had the same problem like this but with a different mobile phone. Apparently sony ericsson showed him acold shoulder sayin that the fone was only partially compatible with HPM-82 and there was no solution for him! So althougn they claim that the phone is compatible with the handsfree it may actually not be!
The phone's working well like an angel and has not given any problems so far and i think this has got one of the best features and most worthy mobile in its price range now.
Hope i have given a fair and just review. Ive talked quite a lot about the audio clarity and accessories issue here. Hope it helps everyone!
Things that bother me a lot is that it does not have dedicated keys for music and has the unbelievable irritating fast port !
I wonder when Sony will learn to loose the charger port thats causing so much trouble! They put so much thought into designing a phone but not this eh?? sadness!
Krishna, 25 Jan 2010Guys, Its my Humble Request...Please Dont try to Compare phones and Argue.Please Update you... moreHey dud..I think u dnt knw the meaning of comparin n arguin.They r 2 differnt wrds n it is very essential to chek whthr the product u r buyin is worth the money u r payin or not...Nw tel me would u buy a naite 4 the price of a satio.So it is required to compare n evn argue if necessary.Thank u..
I am using Naite for the last 10 days. I list out the positives and negatives of the phone.
Positive: Good display, user friendly keys, 3G phone at this price, supports of lot of good applications, good camera, microSD memory, unlike usual costly microstick in SE, and above all the dependability of SE phones.
Negative: The default browser is extremely slow. Audio (including external speaker) is very low for the phone of this kind. Signal reception is also not good in my phone.
I chose this phone mainly communications purposes, email, 3G voice call, etc. So, multimedia is your primary intention for buying phone, you could consider some other phone.
If the above negatives were not there, I would have been happier and strongly recommend to all.

If you want sound quality and music. Nokia 5130 wins hands down. the music output thru headphone and speaker is very load compare to SE Naite when i need to put it at maximum volume and its still not loud enough in a noisy environment. But overall performance I like the Naite. it has a powerful Java software i have no problem playing java games that i have downloaded.
