Dan, 08 May 2011The phone would be more appealing if it has bigger built-in storage. Crazy thing is, SE inclu... more8GB is more than enough I use a N97 with 32gb on board plus they offered me a 16GB micro SD card I can honestly say I never used more than for 4gb.
I also use a K810i with just 4gb micro MS. I use this phone more intensively because it is lighter and has bigger battery so I end up with having much more photos and music and I use about 2gb.
It's a phone, not a mobile hard disk
Have been using it for 10 days now and when comparing it with my son's HTC Desire S, I'm afraid the Neo loses out in many ways except the camera. Overall it isn't as snappy as the Desire S and sometimes it lags in launching applications, this I think is due to the lack of RAM. There're 2 other flaws too which I found frustrating - 1) the call log only shows the persons you called or vice versa and there's no call timer to record your total outgoing or incoming calls. This is a useful feature if you want to know how much talk time you've spent each month. 2) Photos that I took cannot be found in DCIM folder when I connected to my pc. So far I can only tranfer my photos to my pc via BT. Overall it isn't a bad phone but given a choice I would go for the Desire S for a better user's experience
The phone would be more appealing if it has bigger built-in storage. Crazy thing is, SE included an 8-GB microSD. They should have made the internal storage 8GB and even a 2GB free card will be better.
Eazy-e, 07 May 2011How come most of u guys that post in comments in dis site r 4rm India? Funny question though b... moreIndians love technology. That's why India is a big telecom market. Here every state has at least 7 2G and 3 3.5G operators. Not only indian but big foreign carriers like Vodafone, DoCoMo, Telenor, Etisalat and Virgin.
How come most of u guys that post in comments in dis site r 4rm India? Funny question though but i wish to know.
[deleted post]u must have gone mad... lol
those tariffs u mentined were in the starting when services were just launched(stone age)
prices always keep going down and now they r as cheap as i told earlier. either u r trying to fool people here or u r paying as much money but if u r paying as much money than i must say u r being robbed off by companies......
[deleted post]1MB at 1R ? Are you kidding ? This may be true for 2G data plans that comes at 98R for 2GB. Video chat is possible in 3G only and it costs 30p per 20kb. If you calculate it will come to 15R. I can give you the link. Also if i want to make video chat i need to buy 2 android phones with front cam. One for me and one for other as these video chat apps work in android or iphone only.
I want Video call functionality in this phone just like Galaxy S as i am loyal to SonyEricsson.

= Most missed feature - Video-calling... moreThe 3G HSPA has kicked off this year in India and VIDEO CALL rates in India are very low. Unlike other countries; people are using it here.
When Galaxy S can provide 3G Video call facility in Android one year ago then why can't SonyEricsson ?
desire s also cant make 3g video call
which mean android not support 3g video call at the moment?
can sum one confirm tis?
hi now galaxy s2 and many other phones havin a 8mp cam can record 1080p video ,, can a software upgrade on neo and arc could make it to record 1080p videos rather than 720p
GSM-Arena's Reviews - Mobile phone usage report 2011.
= Most missed feature - Video-calling =
"Shock and horror, it’s video- calling in the lead with 22.9%. People who have the feature enabled apparently HAVE NO INTEREST in using it, while those who don’t have video-calls are pretty eager to try them. That’s why we feel that despite the high demand this feature might not substantially gain in popularity in the future– it has been tried and rejected once already."
When will your final review be done, gsmarena? Looking forward to it :)
Flipkart India is showing the release date of Neo as 2nd week of July. It's damn too late! And pre-booking cost of the phone is 24,999/- INR, whereas I was expecting it around 19,000/- to 20,000/- INR. Disappointing! :X
can xperia neo play a BDRip / BRRip mkv format, 720p movie without any lag?
what about 1080p??
i aware, i need a 3rd party player application..
i want to watch movie on the go with xperia neo..
MANYAK, 02 May 2011hey gsmarena already review this.just chk it...at the bottom of the picturE!521MB (380MB user available)..Thank you.
will d xperia neo play angry birds(android) as seen on samsung galaxy s2 and LG optimus 2x??
anaheim, 03 May 2011where do you get this information?? Neo CAN MAKE VIDEO CALLS, and do it via networks or third... moreI would be the first to buy this phone if it can make VIDEO CALL on network and not just Video chat like fring.
Do you have any proof that it can make video calls over network ?
It can't make network video call because :-
1. Battery hour field to make video call is blank in official page.
2. In user manual neither there is told a way nor an icon for 3G network video call.
So it cant make video call just like feature phone like W995 or Hazel. It can do video 'chat' through 3rd party apps and for this your friend or family must have such kind of phone that supports fring or yahoo video chat.
