Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Capacitive touchscreens are made for precision my friend. Even in GSMArena's video on the Vivaz, you can see that there was an instance where he had to press twice just because the resistive technology did not register his input. This would have never happen on a capacitive touchscreen.
A stylus for a touchscreen phone? Where have you been for the past 20 years? My dad owns one of those old Palm PDAs which were made about a decade ago and it needs a stylus to register input. Here we have a HD 8MP phone and it still needs a stylus? That's how old resistive technology is.
I don't own a Vivaz per say but I do run a Telco shop so you could say that I've test-run just about every phone including the Vivaz.
The only touchscreen phone i've owned is LG Viewty and i find its sensitive not as bad. Of course i thing the calibrating of the screen is a standard procedure that just have be done in order not to have complains in the future. If Vivaz has no worse sensitive screen than Viewty, i think it would not be a problem to buy Sony Ericsson (again, after K750 ;)
The sound from the speaker isn't as important feature as others are, i think. After all, no phone (even iPhone) is able to replace the hi-fi and surround systems. Unlike the headsets - they partially do it.
What i want to know is if there are issues, that can not be fixed in future software updates and calibrations.

i have vivaz in weeks. this phone is very nice.. this is an amazing phone and i love it

It is hard to type despite calibrating the touch sensor.
The sounds from the speaker is crap and low volume.
The photos are nice but look bit unreal.
Regret buying this.
To all the close-minded people who insist that capacitive is better than resistive, try using the phone before you insist on your capacitive screens. The screen on the Vivaz has the sensitivity of a capacitive screen, with the precision and convenience of a resistive screen. I've let people who usually use capacitive screens try using my Vivaz, and they agree that it's just about as sensitive as their capacitive screens.
The resistive screen was one of the main deciding factors I bought this phone. I hate capacitive screens due to the fact that it's impossible to be perfectly precise on one, and that you can't use a stylus on it. I also don't see the point in having your screen sense unintended presses when your finger's hovering over it, as capacitive ones do.
i want to post my opinion generally in touchscreen phones...i owned most of them also the viavz right now in my hands...lets face it guys.......the only one right now that gives u real touch screen phone is iphone thats why i never chenge my iphone!!simply when a compny can compare the iphone scrolling then we all be thehappiest persons!!!i liked the design of viavaz and specs but the touchsceens of all the others phones exept iphone make me tired!!!
Shahas, 23 Mar 2010I was looking for Xperia X2.but you all guys are aware they didnt relase. Same happened with X... morewait and buy this you can download opera mobile browser for free it is better windows phone and this phone has got the fastest precessor and 256 mb of ram
I was looking for Xperia X2.but you all guys are aware they didnt relase. Same happened with Xperia X10.Now im looking forward for VIVAZ.Is symbian OS or Windows Mobile Os is better for browsing? On what all way is this better than the windows OS.Similarly it has written TV out (VGA resolution. Is it of good quality(I lack technical knowledge)?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970To me the Aino is some kind of strange toy that I can't see the real use for, and I don't think that would change if I had a PS3 to RemotePlay with. Don't have much opinion on that otherwise.
Nokia X6 has the benefit of having stereo speakers, and if Nokia are keeping up with with the intentions of the phone it should be a better music phone in general. Other pros include a scratch resistant display (with capacitive technology, which seems to be a popular subject...). I've handled it for a moment, and it feels good in the hand even if it's a blocky design. The dual LED flash should make it a bit better for low light photography than the Vivaz, but other than the difference in resolution I can't say anything of the picture quality.
If you want more than music, I'd say Vivaz is the better choice. It has a newer generation processor running 300MHz faster, twice the RAM and a separate graphics chip – so it should be way ahead of the X6 when it comes to smartphone functionality.
Speaking of displays... does anyone know if there's a display film that has matte surface, or helps reduce glare in any other way? The glossy front glass is of the kind that doesn't go very well in direct sunlight.
Jim, 23 Mar 2010Absolute nonsense. A resistive touchscreen is a resistive touchscreen. There's no such thing a... moreI'm no engineer, but I still don't feel that the implication that all screens of one type are the same can be really true. Even if you limit the comparison to the properties of the layers (like the flexibility of the materials) and the spacing between them, it should be easy to figure out that different combinations would result in different sensitivities. Then there's the accuracy of the voltage sensors, the software that interprets that input... and so on.
Not saying that the technology is better than capacitive sensors, but personally I usually like the clicking better on resistive screens. Maybe someone can come up with a panel that has capacitive tracking and resistive clicking...?
(And in my personal opinion the input on the Vivaz is fine. Maybe not as good as my brief encounters with higher end phones, but it is sensitive, and the occasions when scrolling has resulted in a mis-click have been very rare. I think this is another matter where personal taste is involved an a hands-on test is advised to see if you like the way it works.)
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2010Sorry... But try reading GSMArena's review:
"Resistive displays generally need more pr... moreAbsolute nonsense. A resistive touchscreen is a resistive touchscreen. There's no such thing as a better responsive resistive touchscreen or anything of that sort.
That was what they said for the Samsung Jet as well but after loads of I-thought-I-touched-that-so-why-is-it-not-showing later, you'll stick to high-end capacitive models like the X10.
Someone should tell SE that resistive touchscreens are for low-end budget touchscreen models like Nokia XpressMusic or LG Cookies but to see it on the Vivaz? What a huge turn off.
