I'm having the phone since June 2011. No major problem so far. UI is not as smooth compared to Iphone or Android phones, but it is something you would expect from a Symbian device. I had problem with the clock sometime; it tends to be late few minutes at times and I had to set it back manually. Browsing the internet is better with Opera Mini rather than it's native browser. I love the qwerty keypad of this phone; typing is a breeze to me. Overall, the whole experience using this phone is ok. Not phone in this world is perfect, not even the Iphone. If you're looking for a decent phone with a combination of touchscreen and qwerty keypad, able to handle most or at least the basic tasks of a modern smartphones around without squeezing your monthly data plan, then this one of the phone worth considering.
its a problamatic phone. better dont buy. i have using for past 6months and having lots of problems.
Viper, 03 Feb 2012thats pretty weird, well i didnt know how.. but did u had tryed to update the OS in that way u... moreThanks Viper ,
just sent the phone in service( still on guarantee).
what is really weird is that in November 2011 - one month before the "mistery" started , I had the telephone in service and they made an OS upgrade.
For me is still a mistery what is really happening.
I will see in a week time when I will get the phone back.
keep in touch.
hobbit, 03 Feb 2012Can somebody if encountered this situation : the telephone made data transmision by itself , ... morethats pretty weird, well i didnt know how.. but did u had tryed to update the OS in that way u'll gonna reinstall your software and everything will be back to the factory settings, master reset i think not gonna fix that, im suggesting you to try to update the OS (reinstall) with the usb cable... i hope is gonna work
AnonD-40746, 03 Feb 2012as a user i say that this phone battery back up is low and u can't find apps for this mobileWrong Faill... u don't know where to search.. and im not gonna tell you bcs isnt allowed.. but try search more good, and yes there is a lot of applications.. well enough.. try google maybe heh
as a user
i say that
this phone battery back up is low
u can't find apps for this mobile
i am using this phone
can any one say where i can download apps and games for this mobile
Can somebody if encountered this situation :
the telephone made data transmision by itself , sending mails of 2-3 Mb each time, at an interval of 30 - 40 minutes.
In fact in apprx 20 hours it transmited 125 Mb.
I realize only after I received the invoice. During one month it transmited 1 Gb.The average monthly data traffic in the last 6 months was 35-40 Mb.
I cannot explain this annomaly , taking in consideration that the operator cannot explain it also. They told me only that the traffic was registered correctly.
I monitorized the traffic in the mentioned 20hours after I saw the huge invoice ,and I was not accessing the internet during all this time.
If somebody encoutered a similar situation ,please share the info.
Thank you in advance.

And "sam" sorry i have to say but dont foolish the other ppl's the screen touch is perfect about the OS i didnt had problems too soo i dont know for what u r talkin about.. and pls dont comment negative about phone which u never owned it
poor phone. do not use it . i am a die hard fan of sony erricson but this phone is horrible and it has let me down in its horrifying touch screen and OS.the only thing which is the best is its clarity and the aesthetics of the phone.

Thanks much for your reply bud! yeah I've notice most ppl who purchased this device expected to run as good as android or WM or WebOS or iOS. I agree OS60 is old but, you've still got the best applications for S60 than in Android, WM, WebOS or iOS and bloody hell they are free!!
On the contrary Viper this is for you! I've read the review of this device and I'd noticed it being mentioned that this phone doesn't have smart dial, I can live with anything but Smart Dial (being a business user its important for me!) have your managed to pub a cooked S60 ROM and get the Smart Dial to work on your device.
Most annoying thing is the pocket dialing which it seems prone to doing, and also a bit of lagging sometimes, esp when switching from vertical to horizontal orientation, but it's really not THAT bad. Never had any issues with the keyboard, and I have average size fingers (for a girl). Also I like the camera a lot, it delivers good quality, crisp images. And the touch screen is fine for me, works well.
emilo, 12 Jan 2012Hey everyone! I'm thinking to get this phone either the vivaz itself or pro. but based on my p... moreDo not get this phone - it has a crappy resistive touch screen and old OS.
Get the newer Xperia Pro instead.

charlotte, 08 Jan 2012To be honest with you it's a bit of a rubbish phone, you'll find that if you read the reviews,... moreTo be more honest honey... I'm used it since 2010 year and since now 2012 year i had 0 Zero Crashes or failures, oh well u know nothing is perfect remember that, but i cant say nothing bad about this phone im honest bcs i still have it and i like it, the one thing on the begining that i didnt like it, it was the low sound quality but i found a original SE equalizer and the sound is more better now. Sushi i suggest you to not beleive on this reviews specially the bad ones.. bcs everyone can writte whatever they want, i suggest you to try it somehow, i can say that this phone is awesome, everything is up to you, the battery life for me is great, since now i didnt had even one single crash like Charlotte sayed, im wonderring how some of the "owners" haved that a lot of troubles, i guess they dont know how to use a mobile phone or i really dont know...
