I was using P1i for more than two years and now I change to Vivaz. First of all I would thank Sony for this nice portable model but next Iím shocked to find a company like Sony has done such ditto copy of Nokiaís handset 5800. The software menuís everything of Vivaz is just a duplication of 5800. Though it has a better hardware and camera but the OS and working platform everything feels so cheap. Functionality also it seems not at all planned after you use Sonyís good old model P1i which was so well fabricated.
Some serious flaws: You wonít find a battery level % indicator anywhere
The SMS screen with numbers canít generate POP up window to directly call the numbers inside the SMS
There is one single small connection socket for USB, Charging, Data transfer everything all together and I wonder how long it will last. (Didnít expect such cheap planning from Sony)
The PDF reader is coming with a license of 15 days only, when the older P1i was with a free unlimited license.
Touch Screen response is far below the expectation when you are upgrading to a model with three times faster processor
Only good part is the camera. People who want a reliable set can go for it but donít expect much improvement if you have used previous Sony models. I am a Sony Ericson fan but really this model has not fulfilled my expectations.
branda b, 10 Jul 2010I am thinking of getting myself a vivax, and then after reading all these comments, i am scare... moreDon't believe on what you see here. Those people are just coming here to criticized and they don't even have the phone. Here at work, three of us have this phone and not even one got any complain, we are all happy user of Vivaz...

I am thinking of getting myself a vivax, and then after reading all these comments, i am scared again. So what do i do? Please i need some advise.
Satio updates are closed. No more. Do you know is SE makes updates still for VIVAZ ?
Hope a NEW high-end devices very SOON from SE like Satio/Vivaz Serie. Well a "N8 from SE"
+ light weight
- video: it's a joke. The quality of image is ok but check the videos on ytube there is no videos without frame drops!!!
- touchscreen response worst ever , especially on video mode (almost need to hit the screen)
- backside lid very bad designed, cheap quality and i think you can open and close it maybe 20 times before break it.
- the touch response of the screen is really very bad
Excellent phone! Great pictures, great videos. Superb menu, looks, performance and battery. Using it for two weeks now, no problem at all! I strongly recommend it for young folks who want to have entertainment at their hands! Well done SE!

hi! i bought vivaz last month. the phone was working well for 1st hour. Then, the phone was started making problems. i can't connected to my home network. No access to network was displayed when i tried to set default network access manually. So, i claimed the warranty.
Next 2 week, i received back the phone. the phone working well at the current moment. After a few hours, the phone was making the same problem. i can't call or even sms. no network access is displayed till now. Just need some info, what are the causes and how to fix it. i'm sick to sent the phone back for manufactory repair service and now thinking to trade the phone with other model.
Vivaz is better than vivazpr0. Vivaz is my next touch mobile (maybe). I like very much netfront browser. And i love opera mini/ mobile too.
