purchased this phone 2 weeks ago for my wife. white spiro.
the good things:-
1. cheap & affordable for those who listened a lot to mp3/radio. sound quality also very good.
2. user friendly. the keypads/slider are easy to use.
3. powerful & clear sound.
4. small/stylish & perfect for female users.
the bad things:-
1. video quality very poor.
2. unable to change the video mode to landscape vice versa
3. pics quality poor.
4. crash/hang easily & will restart everytime there's an error.
5. too simple/not meant for any advance/expert users.
1. need to buy micro SD card (at least 2GB) to support this hp.
2. need to download themes, games, wallpapers etc to make the phone attractive.
Hi guys this phone is working fine. But you have to update the Phone software in Sony service center. After updating no problems.
I just got this today! It's the white edition.
First of all I think it looks pretty good and stylish.
The keyboard is quite easy to tip, and it feels nice.
Even if the keys are small, I could still navigate the phone quite easy. The camera quality is poor, but still for a 2MP it takes pics pretty well. Main disadvantage is it's 5 MB memory, but i put the microSD card. It's sound output quality is quite well, and the WALKMAN player is easy to use and practic. The battery is poor a little bit since it discharges pretty soon. However, this phone is not junk. It's good for begginers and it's not a dissapointment as a WALKMAN too :)
I have bought one one month before.
battery quality is low.
restarted 5 to 6 times.
cant play video in landscape mode.
video recording is very bad
very good sound in earphone
