Random Employee, 22 Mar 2010An early 2010 release and a RESISTIVE SCREEN?! Seriously Sony Ericsson?!Sorry... But try reading GSMArena's review:
"Resistive displays generally need more pressure to get a click registered. As we found out though, the Vivaz screen response is excellent. The resistive technology is certainly not a drawback here."

It's got really positive reviews from reviewers. Asking for excellent quality during night photos from a video recording centered phone is kinda too much...

I had SE k800 and k550. Both cameras were lovely.
Is Vivaz camera better or worst than cybershot K series?
Lee Wilkinson, 22 Mar 2010After owning the satio i weighed up my options an decided to buy the vivaz, it is an excellent... moreLee, Vivaz is intended mostly as a video shooter, not a pic shooter. During video shooting, the flash is useless, a light however is quite handy.
Anyway, pictures in low light conditions are problematic even for many normal (compact) cameras.
So expecting a quality night pictures is too demanding for a mobile phone .
Does anyone know how much is it price in Saudi Arabia ?
Does it have TrackID ?(i still got my W910i for this + E75)
Do you recommend it over Vivaz pro or Motorola Backflip
After owning the satio i weighed up my options an decided to buy the vivaz, it is an excellent phone, an works really well. my only problem however is the camera, why does it have a light rather than a flash?? the light is useless an unless you take a picture in good light are very poor an not very clear. i was really dissapointed as for an 8mp sony ericsson phone u expect it to be quite good
Hi Guys, seems to be an amazing phone... Im can wait to have it.
Could someone that already have this phone, tell me if it displays or shows on the camera leds a red light like other phones when recording a video? thanks!

@SE 2010, poor external speakers is something i can live with , i've never payed much attention to this aspect.

I've been using it with my Cresyn C750E phones – not top of the line buds, but still very neutral so even the good old "rock" setting helped a lot in bringing life to the sound. Still a bit to go compared to a good media player, but now I find the sound enjoyable.
When you minimize the music player the black box on the home screen expands to show playback controls along with artist, track title and album art. Not as good as external controls when you're in an app, but otherwise I find them practical enough.
The music/media interface works well in general. It has kinetic scrolling, looks nice and feels fairly smooth. The lists only show one line of information though – not a large problem browsing by album or artist, but makes the track listing a bit uninformative.
This is a Symbian 60 series phone so does that mean that if we have a backup of say a Nokia 60 series phone the same can be restored to this device....pls reply i need to change my phone urgently

Since you re-installed the software again, it might help.
Or maybe you have to wait till the software is made available in UK.
Just be patient mate...

One of my friends own this product, and he is really very happy with it, he said that the camera is amazing! The still shots as well as the video, he confirmed that regarding the camera it is one of the best that he has experienced in life. The material of the phone is also solid and nice, the screen is very nice and the response of the screen is very touch sensitive, despite some of the users that say it's not that good, this is what he told me.
However, the only complain that he had is that the external speakers has a low sound, and he didn't enjoy the music the way he used to when he had the SE aino.
Hope this helped a little,

I am in the UK so not sure if you maybe updated your in another country but dont suppose that should matter.
Strange why its not letting me update to version you have.
Just had an opportunity to hold the black version..... apart from being too black, the phone feels solid and well build, despite being made of plastic.
Will wait for the silver edition.....
In the meantime guys, please keep up the good work, and post all you opinions. I'm particularly interested in:
- how suited is it for audiophiles ? There are no external music buttons, but is it a problem really ?
- The camera - How good, or how bad ?

I feel there is an improvement in both the pictures and videos.
The response while texting is much better. I can text messages faster with the qwerty keyboard and even faster alphanumeric keypad

I probably worded it wrong, its not so bad selecting icons but its more the writing text messages thats driving me crazy and so laggy.
Thats great news your finding it much better after your firmware upgrade.
How are you finding the video/camera.
I dont think I have a faulty phone as have read on verious post and even GSM arena say it could do with better colours and contrast
