This phone is a real shit ! i had it for 1 year now and it's avery bad experience to have ..
the touchscreen is slow (but good compared to the nokia resistive ones)
the software sucks !..
It's not actually that bad because it has a 5mp camera that can take a good quality pictures and it can record a video in 720p quality. And the camera has a flash also. If you are looking for an android phone, there are some android that have a 5mp camera but they don't have a flash and they only record a VGA video. It has a 2G, 3G network, WiFi and GPS. It also supports Java. There are so many Java Games and apps in the Internet. Even though it is a Symbian phone but it is still okay.
sam, 10 May 2012if you have bought this mobile then you are the biggest fool on earth and if you haven't then... moreHaha ud be a fool for not getting this phone!its an all rounder and most meant for business and not for playing games take your neagtivetly about this great phone else where :)
Its not a stupid phone!it generally very good had mine for 2 years still works well...enough said!
to those who interested this phone please be remind twice time because this stupid phone i had brought and use before for just 6 month old i sale it until i wait iphone 4s available in oct last years and the phone U8i vivaz pro still ahead of 6 month warranty end up i have to sale this phone got many problem specially symbian OS please dont buy anymore symbian OS you been cheated because all need pay money is first.
but android and IOS is prefect good most all free apps and game plus often update new version firmware to establish the phone better preformance.
if you have bought this mobile then you are the biggest fool on earth and if you haven't then please don't, please don't make a fool out of yourself. Think smart n always go for capacitive touch screens and better os like the ios or android and do make sure that you have a good cpu and gpu because this company has fooled everyone with this cellphone. So guys please dont buy this.
Phoenix, you can buy xperia arc s. the best sonyericsson phone after xperia s. i have vivaz pro the worst phone ever
-Touchscreen is really really bad , you seriously have to press so it's not like most touchscreen phones. I couldn't find any updates. Symbian os is really bad in my opinion , playnow store doesn't have many games as free, only about 20trial version games ,screen is kind small but that's only my opinion. +Very good qwerty keyboard and good battery life. Camera is also quite good but quite far from the top phones. My overall opinion about this phone. I feel like that this phone could be a good phone if you need much phone in your job. For spare time etc.. this phone is quite bad. I wouldn't recommend this phone.
i wana buy dis 1 but most of d comments u guys gave are discouraging me... so,i got 1 question here,if dis not dat gud,then which SE shud i go 4?? any recommendation???

raju.. why u dont make your own private collection wow your 21th (u8i) yeah right haha and ofc is your last sony ericsson phone... bcs now is just sony
When I first got the phone I loved it. A few months later, Android and iOS took the market by force and no one develops apps for Symbian anymore. It kind of suck being forced into getting a new phone just because you can't find any apps for it.
If you want a Symbian phone, I'd say get a Nokia. At least then you can access the Ovi Store.
it's my 21th(u8i) and last sony ericsson phone
(my probl.... Cheeeeeep touch screen )
MAQ, 22 Apr 2012guys please help me... my phone touchscreen got some kind of circular spirals on it and somtim... moreHi,
that's one problem with vivaz pro. Those circular things you see underneath the screen are sort of trapped moisture. For some reason, the touchscreen portion of vivazpro is not airtight enough to resist humidity or even dirt. You can bring it to mobile phone shop to have clean.
Anonymous, 18 Apr 2012i do not recommend this phone.
