Devon, 11 Oct 2010Does the keypad light up.tanx.yes keyboard illuminates and does a good clarity,screen res is gud and sharp.superb fone.
I am with comments on battery been better than my e75 by lots of time..This mobile does all for me but its rather odd set up to remove back cover it tears off..If you like a very non heavy cellfone with full power GPU an HD video and tv out get vivaz pro..People with good touchscreen typing and even more lighweight cellfone just get vivaz plus get 8mp cameras.I love vivaz pro.smartphones.
I am doing battery test now doing non-stop mp3 playback ay 80% volume using senheaiser cx300 which is too loud really using spoken word equaliser setting.Set it off at 5am this morning and it now 12.25am next day and now just played FIRST low battery warning.
So up to now over 19hrs playback,i get 5.5hrs on nokia n95 and 7hrs 10 mins on n97.Will vivaz last 24hrs?? i have checked the battery about 20 times throughout test and that meant the backlight was on for 25 second x 20 as well as mp3 playback at 75% screen britness.
I am on my second charge only got it friday and really hammered it getting things set up and lasted 8.5hrs whereas nokia n95 would have gone at 3hrs or less..So i think or assume up to ow vivaz has good baterry back up..
I own this phone now for almost 2 weeks... It is a very good phone! I am actually typing this from my Vivaz Pro! The camera is very good in daylight, but in poor light the quality of pictures is reduced alot... The keyboard is amazing! Keys are large enough, spacing between the keys is perfect. I never used e-mail on the phone before, I couldn't get the right configuration or something because the e-mail just didn't work as it should, but on vivaz the settings were downloaded automatically and they work great, no problems yet... Something that I didn't like about the phone (or maybe on SonyEricsson as a brand) is that even if the phone has GPS but SonyEricsson doesn't offer any free maps... And the software I think that still needs work... I am assuming that the software comes from the standard vivaz, and that's why in some menus (ex: camera menu) the keyboard is not working and you must use the touchscreen.
Anyway, I hope that SonyEricsson will bring an upgrade for the software, but even if they will not, I am still very happy on my decision to buy this phone!
Have a great day!
ryan, 07 Oct 2010i buy my vivaz almost 3days only but i cannot use a video call rather i can use but they canno... moreThere is no front camera on this phone... That little thing near the speaker is the ambient light sensor!
i had this phone for almost 3weeks now and i really love it, the only problem am facing is the battery:( it dose'nt last for one day.
Hi guys.. i wanna change a hp but i don't know which model to choose.. because i'm now using a n97 mini which is a laggy mobile phone.. in my mind there's 2 model is e vivaz pro and a satio.. so which one of these should i get?
Blimey this takes some charging,its still charging after 2 hrs...Its a lithium polymer but i suppose when using last s/e it was 930mA so perhaps it feels longer using 1200mA type..Some site are saying poor battery but i would say its pretty strong so far..

have not yet got it i hope i can it looks so good, i realy want it . everyone says its amazing especialy the camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got some great fotos with vivaz pro and video focuses good ,audio is tops as usual fo se..If you get equaliser app for free it helps even more,,i find screen outside today fine at 75% brightness.been using twiter and web(dont do facebook)got most of my calender done ..their are so many themes/standby screen/wallpaers that their is lots of combinations to alter your fone..
The wallpapers are animated and never seen this on symbian.
I did 6hrs podcast thru speaker some 5mp pics 10 mins video record,about hour on web some music and 10 mins calls and got 19hrs out of vivaz on second charge.It is a very light device.mine come with water level some games vids worldmate snapfish and other stuff but NO stopwatch so using time machine which is a brilliant fullscreen countdown/count up app..
Not oudated at all what are you on about its high spec and nearly top mobile graphics chip inside and your grammer is awful.The vivaz is more powerful than samsung i8910 hd and that runs quake 3 flawless.Anyhow in built memory or mass memory is useless try a nokia n97 its so slow..
Its only smartfone with continuous hd video ,keyboard.its not outdated its a bloody good device u have not tried it have you?
outdated phone..just 75 mb internel memory......bluetooth vertion2 .....resistive touchscreen and also ugly look slow symbian prosessor....and the prise is uper sky......in this prise samsung wave has more specification and fetures than this toy.....and also far cheaper than this....shame on sony..
This is so ugly that you need.... when you look at it.
It is a huge brick.
Outdated design with outdated specs.
ryan, 07 Oct 2010i buy my vivaz almost 3days only but i cannot use a video call rather i can use but they canno... moreuse a mirror if u want to see them when using a video call...that is a only alternative (for me)...anybody have a better idea????
