Yes, SE did not reply to my complaint, not support from SE, next time will not consider their phone, lousy after sales service.

OS is very very bad & without any support from SE . i guess that this phone Vivaz not belong to SE & when i send a complaint i didn't get the accepted answer coz they already know .
The phone has awesome 8MP, but reading all the opinions I've changed my mind and I won't buy this phone.The disadvantages are dominating the advantages.
Well, i love this phone. Because its more like my last phone. Its simple and good design. Great camera. Moderate battery life. Good wifi too. But the gps is not very precision still ok to me personally. Still never got lost with it. My last one is nokia.
i love the phone camera,the pics quality is great but my just develop problem and i tried to fixed but no luck.so i go x10
Thanks for all you posts. I was just about to buy this phone used for $100 now I understand why it was so cheap and why the lady was so eager to drive 45 mins to deliver it. thanks you all saved me $100.
this phone looks great...has a awesome glossy finish wid a sexy blue colour no other phone has got...just dat it shud have had some great OS...Symbian seems a bit outdated.. touch is not so gud... yet a beautifully crafted piece frm sony ericsson...
Az, 25 Sep 2011From where should i download the games and the themes??? this phone should have had the android system but it's just the symbian and that too the 60th edition thats just dissappointing.......
the hard ware is one of the best but the software is absurd!
if it had android os then it could be great
i bought it 150$ last month and still i couldn't install even a sis file!
My had my S.E Hazel broken 2 weeks ago.So,I decided to replace with a decent handset in the meantime,& I got the Vivaz.Here's my review about it;
Firstly,The U.I is quite good.You do not face resistance while using the touch screen (Although it is resistive touch screen)But ofcourse,it's not comparable to that of the I-Phone or N8 :)
Scrolling between photos is greatly impressive.I never suffered any king od lag while scrolling between 'em..neither did I face it in the music player.
Ofcourse the S60 is not the best in market,when compared to Android,Symbian ^3 & IOS.But It offers pretty much applications as well as games.If you're familiar with the Nokia xpress music,Vivaz won't be a surprise !
The accelerometer is quite smooth & responds to the slightest tilts (not in a bad way ofcourse).
The camera,which is the best part about the phone,snaps very high-quality photos.There is much resolved detail in the photos & the colours are rich & eye-catching.The photos are as good as those taken by the C905 & thereby,is one of the best camera phones in market.The camcorder records videos at 720p & is quite clear,with very little over-sharpening :)
One drawback about the camera is,at certain times,when setting the picture size to 8mp,you can suffer of low memory..but it happens at very rare times.
Let's come to the audio quality.The vivaz produces a clean audio quality,but the loudness is too low.However,when connected to a sony headset,the audio quality is remarkbly good :)
The connectivity is quite good.I never faced any problem with it even when in the elevator!
The video player(real player) plays alot of video codecs,including rmvb,mpeg4,etc.but not xVid or DivX ! This problem can be solved by downloading a software that plays these codecs,or by converting them before syncing them to the phone.You can enjoy playing HD videos,& I tried doing that when playing Avatar.The video quality is too clear & smooth ;D
In conclusion,The Vivaz is a very decent & good handset.The design is stylish,but one ting to mention is that the black colour stays a fingerprint mess.So I advice you to get the silver colour,which hardly leaves any fingerprints at all.If your're looking for a touch-screen phone with a splendid camera,at a reasonable price,ignoring the loudness of the handset.Then surely vivaz would serve you good :)
Bought this phone less 9 months ago for €235,had nothing but problems with freezing etc.Then a few days ago it went completely dead.Brought it back to my local vodafone shop where I bought it.They sent it for repair and then told me today It was broken and that I must have dropped it(which I absolutely didn't)and that I won't be covered under my waranty.It obviously had problems with the internal components and now I have to take the loss.Absolute Joke,I will never buy a sony ericsson phone again.Sorry for the rant but I'm still so angry!:-(
Dissatified with the touch , if we want to press any of the option , we need to press it hard.
