This is probably the most serious competition to any Nokia phone by Sony Ericsson. N97 mini has a very worthy rival. Better video recording, more compact, faster processor, nice Qwerty, good looks. What is missing is .avi playback. But Nokia has that cool pop up QWERTY. Its just cool. N97 mini is also a looker in its own right. Plus N97 mini comes with that unrivaled lifetime turn by turn voice guided navigation license bundled along with it and that too completely free. I don't know about the price difference, but it'll not be considerable. I think N97 mini still would be a better buy. This is only for Sony Ericsson fanboys.

Mobilemaster, 17 Feb 2010I am a SE fan, when some big Japanese companies will enter or reenter(Nec) in the global marke... moreBut not all Japanese manufactured phones were slated to be released in international market. And we all know that SE Japan has dif'rent portfolio than their international counterpart. It was only the X10 has both (int'l and Japan release)
So I would't be relying much on those Japanese branded phones.
Guys I have seen several videos of SE and Samsung phones, and don't let Samsung fool you with their Amoled Screens, because the touch phones response really sucks, I swear to you that the resistive touch screens of SE are better than the Capacitive Touch screens of Samsung, the first video is for the remarkable Vivaz pro, and you can see how smooth and fast it is :
The second video is for the samsung Hd, which by the way is a capacitive touch screen but you can see how slow it is compared to the HD2 in the same video :
Enjoy the videos folks ;)
Hi, my name is marvel and i am a SONY ERICSSON fan because they are the best among the best.
The SE vivaz pro is the best phone i have ever seen becuse of it portability and programmings.
When this phone released, i must buy it.
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2010 what is it DLNA?DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) refers to both an organization and the technology they created. The DLNA standard is used for sharing music, photos and video over an existing home....
jon, 17 Feb 2010any idea about price as features are some wot similar to n97...no video call and no good quality games so that means ...icrap is better choice
I am a SE fan, when some big Japanese companies will enter or reenter(Nec) in the global markets, SE could be in trouble! Many peoples heard about Sharp right? And about Fujitsu? And about Panasonic? These are the BIGGEST Japanese phone makers, and I read last year, they will enter in global markets with smartphones(Sharp and Panasonic for sure!!!). Then SE what you will do? I don't want to annoy somebody since I am a BIG SE fan, but Sharp has incredible technology! Panasonic will "attack" with Android OS phones! Could they challenge the X10?
SE new Vivaz and now Vivaz Pro are a great options to their line of phones but with the Vivaz Pro they should not have down grade the camera... this change their consistancy of the new lines. It's not like that with the X10 mini and X10 mini pro or the X10 and X10 pro too.
I think that SE put a 5 megapixel cam on this one was only for business because if they put an 8, then ppl will go for this one instead of the normal vivaz... but still cam dos not matter that much the important thing is the cuality
actually the phone will ship with Symbian^3 so enjoy this great product from the best brand SE
I have a NOKIA 5800 right now. But am planning to buy one after March ending.
This looks very tempting. Was waiting for the first ELSE Intuition. If X10Pro (not mini) comes up, then the choice will be tougher.
why are some people complaining about 5MP instead of 8MP? It will make no difference! No one actually NEEDS more than 5MP - what matters more is the quality of the optics, sensor, and signal processing. If that's the same as the standard Vivaz then the camera quality of the Pro will be fantastic (apart from no lens cover or Xenon flash on either model :( )
