Bernadette, 01 Oct 2008I'm looking for a new phone and the P1 has really caught my attention. I've read that the QWER... moreHi Everyone,
I've used the P1i for over 1 year now. I found the phone an excellent phone in the sense that it has almost all functions that one could think off. Some points I'd like to mention.
1. P1i has a jog dial. Mine got jumbled up.
I moved it up and the cursor went down
vice versa. But some how it is all right
now. Thats a surprise.
2. I was used to the W800 phone. It had an
excellent feature of call recording. This
doesn't have it. so hands down here.
3. Wifi works fine. But its a little slow.
4. Can't comment on video calling as we
don't have this facility here. Same goes
for other high end internet like 3 G.
5. Phone calls are really clear.
6. There is no flash separately. but the one
available has a really strong light. Still
to use it one has to hold the camera
button half pressed.
7. Camera features are good. Keeping in mind
that this is a phone camera. Its not as
a real digital camera is. So its not
comparable to the cybershot version of SE.
8. Music player is good.
9. Playing games on P1i is a so so
experience. I couldn't find many games
compatible with this model. Most were for
P990. Some did work but others I found
difficult to navigate. So dropped the idea
10.I found some excellent softwares which I
use every day. Those make me love my P1i.
11.I tried using the PDF viewer. Its slow
and if it has pictures then forget it. It
takes ages to open. So only tried it for
a few times then dropped the idea.
12.Word and excell are good. I used them. I
also edited my documents. All can be done
13.About the QWERTY keypad, well in the start
I had some trouble. But then I got the
hang of it. and now I can type very
swiftly and easily. I love this feature as
it is supported by the T9 feature.
14.Don't ask about battery. Its a so so thing
as in all SE phones.
15.Its durable. The best thing. My 2 yr old
daughter swooped it up like a ball and
forgot to catch it. It dropped like a
stone with a noise. My heart beat was up.
When I checked it it was amazingly working
fine without a hitch. No scratches on it
either after 1 year of use.
16.It sometimes gets slow and may need a
restart. But don't all phones hang at
17.It has a beautiful velvety touch on the
back. I proudly say that it has remained
that way for 1 year. After cleaning it
becomes the same when I bought it.
18.I don't know about others but mine didn't
come with a GPS.
So in the end I'd say that this is one good phone SE came up with. Can't say about other models but a few things that they missed from previous models. Well all I can say is that in the beginning one feels their absence but in the end the phone is so good that we don't miss those features anymore.
