P1i is not only better than P900 on paper, but in reality as well.
The list of its superiority is too many to mention. I dont want to exhaust myself explaining.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970it depends on your needs
if you want to have a good camera phone - N95 8G
If you want reliability and functionality - P1i
Garhy, 19 Aug 2008I like this handset a lot I just want to know where is the voice memo option?go to menu - entertainment - sound recorder
click the drop down logo next to the signal icon >> then click new - recording. (hmmm... on second thought, im not sure if you can see it there by default. I mean, i made a lot of mods on my P1i that i think thats the reason why i can find the recording option in the drop down logo)
Well I have read some latest posts, and a person said that Iphone is an crap. Well to me it isnt a crap. I have Iphone and P1i aswell.. To be true to multitouch in Iphone is awesome, but why dont I like Iphone is because of its huge limitations. It makes my second choice because of this. P1i has lot of features 3.2mp, 8gb card change option, softwares mp3 etc. Iphones touch technology is unbelievable plus its fast and responsive, unlike P1i which hangs at time or restarts giving message restarted to improve performance...
so Iphone is good with its technology, but truly P1i rocks :P
i agree about what you said on iphone..a waste of money..if you are really wise i would go for,i mean why buy that much just because it has a brand and just to show off? theres a lot of other phones that has much better specs than iphone has to offer..
Sony Ericsson is undoubtedly a wonderful company that produces nice phones. I love these phones for a couple reasons. Reasonable price, choosing the correct features for phone etc are some of them. I would have loved if this had a processor faster than 203MHz, but I don't find any big glitches because of the small processor.
In general the phone is nice, the camera is just OK but the flash is shitty (LED). I enjoyed the couple of hours I spent playing with my friends phone and feel like buying one for my self.
maybe that guy is the exception (the p900 user) I am actually a P800, P910, And now, P1i user.....(glad I didn't bought p900 and P990) my dad bought the phone somewhere in the middleeast,,, and the firmware is actually already R9j005.... anyway,,, the phone is so
Its so cool to use, my friends even liked it. At first Iwas nervous about the keyboard. (though I really love it at first) but apparently became so useful, especially the dictionary (it remember words even tagalog)
My P910 is now USELESS, its like a beeper now. why??
1. the screen is broken (the ccd)
2. the flip is broken
with these defects, you cant txt the way you want such as the front keyboard, the qwerty keyboard, handwriting recognition and of course the onscreen keyboard.... duh its so useless now......
anyway those are just my resentment to the phone....
P1i is the best phone........ Thank God I didn't buy Iphone.... (its like buying a crap in your pants)
I like this handset a lot I just want to know where is the voice memo option?
I have one question which I'm hoping someone will be able to give me answer for. When I do Internet Banking on my phone, it goes through as normal but the moment I need to authorise the transaction i.e. click on the link that gives the go ahead to proceed with transaction like a transfer, it goes back to my sign on screen without processing the request. Then I use my husbands phone(other make and model) and it works no problem at all. That is the only thing that happens that I cannot seem to get around. Please try it out and help if it is maybe one of my settings.
Having previously had Sony Ericsson's brilliant P900, I went out of my way to get this later offering the P1i. On Paper it's a better phone, but in reality, the quality is dismal from a software point of view. I need this as a tool. The other day a business acquaintance informed me that he had changed his e-mail address & phone number. I made the changes in his section on the calendar & the phone crashed. This unfortunately is a regular occurance.
I went to Sony Ericsson's update service in the hope that this would solve this. Instead this would not restore the memory after this (even though I followed procedure thoroughly). Their UK call centre proved to be unhelpful & disinterested.
If there were half the gimmicks, but higher quality like the P900, I would be happy but Sony Ericsson made a bad phone here in spite of what these other reviwers may say.
Also I'm on their second phone on swop outs, so this is not a once off.
Used to have the P1i before and it was a nice without problems phone but the lack of flash player support pushed me to Nokia.
here again to talk explain my past issues with the p1i
first off as i stated earlier this is a great phone just that i had a bad experience with it. i am on th fido network in canada nd after speaking with the employees i was informed that teh reason why i have poor signal reception is bcuz you get teh best results on their network using a quadband phone, as for teh resale value of the phone i am acrually good friends with the owner of the store and he knew b4 hand about the screen and as for teh stylus never bothered bcuz that can be replaced i just have to add that a few weeks earlier he told me i could get half my moneyback($250) to put towards another phone but then after checking out other gsm cellphone stores i realized he gave me the best offer(couldnt argue bcuz down here getting 50% back is a deal. every store told me how a few months after the phone was released teh value dropped drastically. finally as for the xperia and e71 ive never had an issue spending $400-$600 on a phone but i kno that went the x1 comes out its going to be in the neighbourhood of close to a grand n in my opinion no phone is worth that much/ keep in mind im not buying the phone bcuz of all gizmos and gadgets i look for an appealing phone that gets teh job done in style and then some n once again no phone is owrth a thousand bucks or close
just my 2 cents
if any p1i users can help me - i heard that you can download & install GPS function to this phone, is that true? if so where would i be able to download it? also, i've downloaded p1i themes but dont know how to install them. cos if i just save it to my phone, it's just a folder with separate pictures & doesn't work as a 'theme'. any advice would be great! thanks in advance!!
