I have this phone for 4 months and I'm very disappointed. only a few days after i bought it the microphone spoiled. i took it to vodafone and they told me that it was from mistreatment. since then i can speak only with the hands-free. the camera quality is very bad. the RAM is very small too, when I listen to music, it gets very slow, i have to wait 5 seconds to start an SMS. The volume is very low, in a crowded place i cannot hear my hands-free. its not a good phone, dont buy it.
No clock in sleep mode, no Daylight Saving mode and no light makes it a nuisance. I thought I was upgrading from the V600i. I'm not so sure yet
Hi I have the V640i & this is the worst phone I have ever had I have two handset 1 for me & 1 for my partner they both started to turn off after a month sent back to Ericsson and they replaced both phones and now they are both doing the sam thing DO NOT GET THIS PHONE.
this phone sucks... keeps switching on off.Took it back to Vodafone and they checked the serial number....Unfortunately there are many faulty like that.I had it for 5 months and no problem , now I m waiting to see what SE will do , they will give me another or they will try to fix this ???? :-(
12 days now and I m using an old phone ...Really sucks.Dont buy it !!!!
Planning to buy this phone. I know this phone only has 2 megapixel but has it got good imaging. Is the speaker loud. Would you prefer it over the Nokia 5310 or Sony Ericsson w660i.
It's not the battery its the cheap charging port maybe. If you use a se too much with earphones, charger, computer. Then the port gets loose. Very common problem.
Really Really Bad quality of plastics and paints.The keyboard buttons made bubbles and started to peel off after 1 week. I found a "fingerprint" from the phone bag's fabric on the back side
As about operation and stability, it is OK.
Smooth and slim. The Savannah Gold is luscious. Speakers come with it too. Slightly different soft key layout and no 'back' button like the earlier Sony Ericssons. Sound on the music player is very good. Not as loud as the W810i but this shouldn't put you off buying it. New page layout on the music player pages too. Radio is good. Internet is great and even better in a 3G signal area. Screen size could be bigger. Camera is sufficient. Video camera very mediocre but then this is a phone not a camcorder. No Quadra-Pop game (shame about that) and full of 60 second trial demo games... Come on, give us at least one full length game. Very reminiscent of the T610 and 110% better. Great phone. Buy it...
the phone works perfect, no problems. i have v640i with the "i" at the end. its not switching off and on like you said . =D
SE Rules!!! Go Sony Ericsson!!! and New Generation for Sony Ericsson...
I am berry much of the happiness of this phone. I am wishing to have it for the ever. I am of the reccommendation for the purchase. I am Bond...Ranjit Bond.
it's a great phone, good battery, it looks nice. nothing to complain
As per other comments, the phone has either a battery or a software problem as it keeps switching itself off. Had two replacements already, both were re-conditioned, not new, replacements (only had the original just before Christmas), resulting in several weeks without a phone but still having to pay my Vodafone subscription...... seems to me that there’s something fundamentally wrong here.
Upgraded to this phone (theres a laugh). Had to send the first one back because it couldnt hold a charge and kept switching itself on and off all day. Had the replacement for about 6 months now and hey presto it has started to do the same. I dont know if its a battery or software issue, I have rang Vodafone who didnt know either but i have been told to take it back for repair. Now going to be without a phone until they decide its u/s and send me something else, preferably a different phone.
