hello! Can someone please tell me what is the diference betwen resistive touchscreen and capacitive touchscreen?
2 weeks after using this phone. Not sure why but lately it hang quite a lot of time. Thinking of whether I should send back to do a firmware upgrade. But this occurs after I have installed quite a number of downloaded of application.
For calendar, it is stupid as it cannot copy/cut and paste from 1 date to another date. (Or is it juz that I do not know the tricks).
Another stupid thing I notice, when I set the profiles to any other except Normal. The profiles name actually overwrite the Date display. Funny! This 2 display should be independent.
For good side, excellent picture and music (no doubt). Surf net experience is difficult to compete with iphone. But surfing with Opera Mini does help to improve abit.
Battery life is not as bad as what is stated by the people here. If you do not surf net, juz do normal talking, sms, listening to radio/music, the battery easily last you 2-3 days without charging. This is already consider quite good. But if u surf net esp facebook etc, be prepared to charge everyday. But I feel that this is expected.
The grid is good. Light and compact. Do not be afraid that the casing will be scratched. This can be easily changed. There is a screen protector which is essential.
Youtube quality so-so. Auto-rotation can be a pain at times. The screen is not as responsive as I thought it will be. For iphone user, a light touch with the fingertip. But for Vivaz, must make sure the finger print is fully depressed on the screen to sense it.
Does anyone know the RAM for Vivaz? is it same with Satio or higher?

vidoes directly from Vivaz. Like on Youtube and Picasa.
demana, 01 Apr 2010Hi everybody,
I have been reading your opinions because I am interested in buying this phone.... moreHi Demana. I've been using the Vivaz for 2 weeks now, and here's a little update. I had to reinstall the firmware (due to certain less-than trustworthy 3rd party applications), and I must say that my phone performed better than before: start-up was a lot faster, with all configured start-up apps, including 3rd party ones like vMenu (which has an iPhone-like menu overlay), as well as Best Taskman and MyKeylock (which allows for a customizable unlock screen).
As I had noted in my earlier post / review, the phone is an excellent one, considering the hardware in such a small and light package, and the camera produces incredible shots, both stills and video (I just made a video of my Corgie this morning and the quality was nothing short of phenomenal). If only there was a way to upload my photos and/or videos.
My gripe is the flash functioning as a light rather than in bursts as well as the quality in low-light indoors (which I understand could be fixed with a firmware update, where the flash can be programed to emit bursts and the software algorithms improved). My other gripe is the aging user interface, which can be overcome by 3rd party programs like vMenu and the upcoming SPB Mobile Shell 5.0, which do not hog resources, given the Vivaz's hardware.
I have noticed that some of those who have gotten this phone have complaints; perhaps it is more of a firmware issue or even a manufacturing defect more than the hardware itself. I have had my first Vivaz changed because of a bad camera, and my new set produced excellent images, anyway. Plus the fact that I noticed that my handset functioned better after reinstalling the firmware. Hope this helps!

Got the phone yesterday.. Excellent features in a small n sleek look. Looks good, camera's excellent, great performance. Rs. 23000 in India.
I have been reading your opinions because I am interested in buying this phone. What I see is that nobody agrees with each other in anything. It is like your are talking about many different products. Given the fact that all machines have big or small problems and even the most expensive phone will have problems, is vivaz a good phone to buy?
Chris, 29 Mar 2010Hi Ara. I would say that the sound quality with earphones is phenomenal, and right now I am pa... moreHi Chris,
thanks for the reply. i just bought the phone earlier in the day. it's still charging now so i haven't really play with it yet, but i have to say i am a little disappointed with the crappy ear piece that was given plus the redundant manuel.
i will try out the phone tomorrow and come back here to comment again for the sake of those who hasn't bought this phone yet...
Facts about the SE brand, you may be interested knowing about :
SE made the first 8mp camera with xenon flash not led flash.
SE made the first 12 mp smart phone, not a 12mp with a boring java os!
SE made the first HD recording phone with auto focus features, and it truly reached 24 fps! So yes it does what it says.
SE made the first Android handset with an 8 mp camera.
SE made the first Windows mobile handset with an 8 mp camera.
SE were the first to use the bluetooth technology! Yes some people may argue that it was ericsson that first used it, but hellooo?? Ericsson is still part of this amazing company so all it's innovations will come with it.
SE were the first that brought to us the cyber shots and walkmans to the mobile industry!
SE made the first transparent mobile device!
SE have the best designs and looks ever!
SE have the best support and update system! to improve the overall quality and performance of their software on a reguler basis.
SE brings the best out of Sony ( style- camera- video - animations - features). And the best out of Ericsson ( communications - networks).

This is not promoting, these are all facts! Go and search for your self and get your facts right before replying! And I dare you if you will find even one mistake.
