hi all,i have a iphone 3gs and was wondering would it be a good move to switch to this phone or go for the iphone 4 instead ????
can somebody tell me the what is latest software version of this phone??
mine is 1224-4699_R2AK006
Ok, so I played with this in person and loved it. And it's quite affordable compared to other "hi-end" devices. I really wished it had a better LED for a flash but it still looked nice. My questions would be:
if any of you use push email, just how instant is it? I mean, my BlackBerry pushes my mail very fast and I would love having a similar experience with this. Also, how do the html emails look? Messed up or neat? How about truncated emails, any issues with that? Next, the Twitter and FB apps, do they offer push notifications? Or do I need to set it to search every something minutes? And, my final question, are there as many themes available for this as for the Nokia handsets? That's really all I'd use it for, and of course, the camera. I've grown addicted to having my email and Facebook stuff sent instantly to my phone but my BB hasn't been as stable as before. So, now I'm looking to choose between this and the X10 or Aino... so far, price and style, I'm loving the Vivaz.
eve, 18 Jun 2010Thnx PANDA, true dat... u c, mobile shops here you are not allowed to test the handset. what i... moreThat reminds of when I was choosing between the Satio and Vivaz. I liked the vivaz more, due to it being more sleek and slim. The satio being very square and bulky put me off.
Thnx PANDA, true dat... u c, mobile shops here you are not allowed to test the handset. what i need is is the phone with the most features. wen i compare it here on GSM-Arena it shows that the vovaz has more features... but... im still confused. the bulky-ness doesnt bother me as such though :-)
[deleted post]If you can, go and sample the two at a mobile shop.
It depends entirely on what you are looking for in a phone. I like the Vivaz over the Satio mainly that the Satio is large and a lot more bulky than the vivaz.
What are the mainpoints for you in a phone?
YB, 17 Jun 2010I was checking out the specs of the Vivaz, to check if this phone has a flash. Cuz a few nites... moreThe light is meant to be the flash but it does not flash when you take pictures. You have to switch it on beforehand. Keep the camera in auto mode even in poor light as I found using the night modes are very grainey and nowhere near as good. Play around with all the settings it helps and you can find some neat tricks.
Good luck and enjoy
talha, 16 Jun 2010bought it last week....... excellent phone. gr8 lukin, gr8 in use, no problems except voice is... moreGlad you like the phone too.
Just increase the call volume in the settings to max or near. That helped sort it for me.
Reviewer, 18 Jun 2010If you read some of the comments here you can see that they just giving you wrong information ... moreFinally some one with common sense. If you own the phone you can comment on how good or rubbish it is. If you dont only ask questions about it and dont give misleading comments.
I read up lots of reviews of the Vivaz before buying and then thought it was worth trying out.Some people just read other reviews and opinions and then decide they know everything and give false comments and opinions. Irrittate me so much.
If you read some of the comments here you can see that they just giving you wrong information and telling lies.
I have been using SE for many years now but i didnt get any problem, i bought vivaz a month a go and i didnt get any problem, its good and everything works fine.
i like it.In my family i'm the only one who has SE all of them have nokia,and they suffer alot due to software problems. So i know well about nokia, they are less price and less quality with bad design
nick, 17 Jun 2010the k800 was a great handset, so cheap and did everything at the time.
the k850 was poor, a... moreNick, seeing that you have owned every handset and have an opinion on each one. Why dont you start your own mobile review website....
My K850i in my opinion was great. The photos I took with that were simply stunning and I miss having such a good point and shoot cameraphone with a brilliant music player, the best I have experienced to date.
I have seen many of the other phones on the market which my friends have. However I will not comment as I have only seen and not used them for a considerable time and only have other users opinions which are biased.
Have you owned and used every SE on the market at the moment(I doubt it), dont base your comments on other peoples opinions.
I only upgraded to the Vivaz because I had been out of contract for over 6 months and I thought to get a new handset. My K850i is sitting patiently in its box if and when my Vivaz give problems.
IRO of the VIvaz so far I have no complaints there at all. I had to reinstall the software once after my overexuberence in installing cracked software from other mobiles. Other than that I love it, I still have the option to return it and choose another device. But I have not.
If you are an owner of a certain mobile device then feel free to comment and give an opinion. If not please shut up.
hey any one can help me.....my phone time always wrong....ill update it and after 30 min its displayed wrong time...
pls help me.....................

the k850 was poor, and well, they never really recovered, even until this present day.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2010i bet all sony ericssons are better than your phone anywayhtc hd2? lol if you think this phone is better.
i already had it for almost a month now
and i really love it.
but my problem is i don't know how to setup my email.
i already did many things to make it work including downloading over and over again the config
but it keeps saying 'connection refused by server' and tells me to check my username and password.
the thing is, my usernm & psswd is real!
I was checking out the specs of the Vivaz, to check if this phone has a flash. Cuz a few nites ago i tried taking pics in the evening and the picture quality was soo poor even with the function light on.
And they say this phone has a flash??
Nonetheless im enjoying it!
Most of the software on the phone requires you download it.. thort it came standard on the phone already.
