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????
i buy my vivaz almost 3days only but i cannot use a video call rather i can use but they cannot see me i cnt use the front camera plssss teach me how to use my relatives is very excited to see me pls sony help me
Have this phone for 3 weeks now. i am an sony fan, but must say i regret not to buy the wave. better apps, better performance!
my vivaz is really cool and only complaint is radio is dependant on headfones as aerial and u have to move around to get signal..i have no problems with it and tyyping is so easy ,when had 5800 it was awful doikng texts,email google search input,the vivaz does it in seconds.i give vivaz pro 9/10.
I updated mine this morning and it says now supports 32GB card which i intend to purchase.I have had a s/e & last w995 was quite good and fun to use..The complexities in this smartphone are enormous theres allsorts installed but the so called manual is like a ordinanace survey map how it opens up..I have used the 5800 so i am used to whats going on but to a novice it will seem quite a complex mobile.
I had vivaz but swapped for pro for textual input reasons..I want to get some test footage but its rained since ive bought vivaz pro..They say when i updated it that s/e commitment is for 2 years for vivaz pro with a team working on bringing out updates to improve performence,,i hope so as samsung let me down on i8910 and a person whos does writing codes helped get people up and running with i8910 were samsung just left it.
