I've had the vivaz since March 2010 and it was okay until it stopped charging in January 2011. I sent to the repairers and the charging problem was fixed and the software updated. However, since it's come back, it seems to have taken on a life of it's own! Icons are pressed without me selecting them, it doesn't respond when I select an item from the menu and will move to a different item and I can no longer turn it off as I spent 1 hour and 30 minutes trying to enter my pin number as It kept on choosing numbers I hadn't selected or delecting the ones I had. Frustrated
is it possible to upgrade the operating systems from Symbian to android.
i would also like to state that the phone was designed for sony ericsson by nokia, that explains the bad picture quality, the battery life and the saving method.
besides that the phone is on point.
lock ur phone before putting it in ur pocket
Just got the phone and i dnt knw why pple are making negative comment abt the phone,the truth is all phones have there short comings,if u want the phone go get it as for me viva is da bomb.ola
I bought this mobile 5 months ago and I am not satisfied at all. It has good specifications, but the user experience is just awful.
The call keys tend to get pressed when the phone is in the jeans pocket and the phone will just answer incoming phones even before vibration begins.
The resistive touch screen responds slowly and is not accurate. It also gets "depressed" areas easily, even after a long phone call, these areas then make the phone impossible to use.
Symbian is an obsolete operating system, with very few applications and too frequent crashes. The installed web browser is not good, and other browsers are too slow when installed to the system.
Battery life is too short too.
renderyu, 01 Mar 2011I'm planning to purchase this phone. But, theres many opinion bout the bad side of this phone.... morehonesty speaking, the loudspeaker is bad bt if u put earphone into it than the sound will be perfect, perfect as in nt se earphone is the other brands 3.5mm jack earphone.. camera for taking picture is not too bad and not too good average.. but for video recording is good! as for the EQ you have to download it.. if i don't remember wrongly i used to download it from play now store which is inside the menu..

ORCA97, 04 Mar 2011Can someone please tell me how to transfer photos from my Sony Ericsson Vivaz to my computeruse card reader.
finally got rid of my vivaz pro for a bb bold 9780. vivaz pro looks nice but it isn't very user-friendly, considering i text a lot. sliding the qwerty keyboard out is just too much of a hassle for me.

On the second day, I experienced all the problems that you mentioned. I'm also not very satisfied with the camera as it's not as the picture that I took is not as sharp as I expected from SE phone.

I'm planning to purchase this phone. But, theres many opinion bout the bad side of this phone. Hm..hm.
is it really that bad? Sounds? Camera capture?
will anyone helps with opinion? Tq..
very nice model excellent in Video streaming but poor sound but works perfectly.....
Its model is good every thingzz okay but i want to know that is any problem of battery ?????
Poor in sound quality,no equalizer setting for bass efect especially when we use earphone but another is ok.
Overall - not a bad phone. Perhaps a little flimsy feeling compared to my Motorola KRZR K1 that I was using. A couple of irritations (unless it's settings I haven't found yet):
1) No audible reminders about having messages in your 'inbox' other than the initial one when the message comes in - no good if you were away from your phone at the time of message received.
2) No audible reminders that your battery is getting low - the phone just shuts down until you recharge it.
I would like SE to add these two features (which I find very neccessary and seem to be on every other cell phone that I've ever used!) via a software upgrade to this phone and i very quick order.
Nice phone otherwise but these two irritations almost make me want to send it back and just order a new battery for my old Motorola KRZR K1.
Also, how do you activate speaker phone on this thing???
I got my vivaz pro four days ago and I cant keep my hands off it. Its realy a smart phone and its cute.
