Static, 15 Feb 2011I am not going to argue here. All the specs on this phone is not even solid. On some websites,... moreyes. and i've some of them as well. yet there's only one website to rule them all. the manufacturer's. check youtube. in mwc 2011, the people presenting the phone couldn't even utter the phrase video calling. however, a lot of them said video chat. i guess because android is something new to S.E., they will rely on developers to get an app for video calling. its just so funny because other android phones have done already done it.this is just frustrating. i hope S.E. could ensure this phone will have video calling over 3g by the time it gets to hit the world market...sigh...

The Sony Ericsson Xperia neo will come with support for HD video playback, HDMI-out port, an Exmor R sensor for the 8MP camera with LED flash. It is powered by a second generation 1GHz Snapdragon processor, so you can rest assured performance won’t be an issue here.

On some websites, the front facing camera is 2mp, but some are only vga. I did not say that there is video calling, but i don't think you can rule out the possibility that it can. There are a number of sites which said it can. You can type in 'xperia neo video calling' in google, there are a bunch of sites you can read from. I personally can't get on the sony ericsson website so i can't check.

i hope this link will clear your mind mate. i don't know where you are getting those things that you just said because i learned how to read and how to understand what i read. if gsmarena is your source, try the manufacturer's website for a change. then pls post a link that would say that this phone has indeed video calling under 3g network.
Front-facing camera (VGA)
"Your phone is video-chat ready - and the front-facing camera is great for self-portraits too."
that is from SE website. is there anyone else who could differentiate video chat from video calling? ugh...
not even one could give any valid link that would negate this. i just hope someone could prove me wrong since i would really want this phone...
and not someone using anonymous just so he could start flaming when all things coming out of his head is stupidity in its purest form.

that's from S.E. website. if this camera could be used for video calling, they should have placed it there. in my language i also use common sense which im really sorry if your language doesn't.
might as well check the whole message before you come up with some reply even worse than a toddler could come up with.
i placed video chat. your reading is selective. you just choose what you want to read. or is it just what you could understand? im not a hater. i have a sony ericsson w960i for 3 damn years now so stfu and try vocabulary+common sense as your next reading course... ugh. internet is supposed to be making people more intelligent but you just blew that idea off BIG TIME!!!

Haters, if you are going to hate the phone, put some effect into it.

'Not applicable' status is for music listening time not for video calling.
Under the heading 'battery performance' video calling category is given which says it's battery life as 7hrs talktime & 400 hrs standby time.

I am not expecting it to have dual core or high ram, no one here should be comparing it with the likes of sgs2. Get your phone enteries right! Why are you here anyway if you are rubbishing it?
I got a vivas and i am slowly falling in love with it. Even though the vivas looks better than this.
Well people the new HTC devices suck!!!
I'm sticking to this one till it comes out!
OFC If the price is 500 euros..NOT!
I'm waiting eagerly for this device..it has all I need.
any pros and cons?
[deleted post]As mentioned below, dreadful amount of internal storage, no dual core processor, and ram is not 1gb like other competitors. For those reasons...it sucks!!
I need digital compass too. Why didn't they add a digital compass? This phone is the best but it does need a digital compass. About xvid and divx well we can use software such as arcmedia from the android market. If this phone had a digital compass, it would be the most perfect phone on the market! I just hope that the specs about this phone are not completely correct and therefore this phone may have a digital compass too!!! I will check this page later and I hope to see it has a digital compass and lower price!
internal storage memory is no where near good enough, that will get used up in seconds with the apps, I have a HTC desire which has more storage than this and I ahve to delete apps all the time.
ram not enough and not a dual core processor.
I would suggest the samsung galaxy s 2

their website also mentioned battery time and videocall says 'not applicable'.
i just hope this isn't true as im a video caller myself so if this phone won't support it, then S.E. should start diggin their own graves for dissapointing a lot of people yet again, including me.
it only has document viewer. will this phone allow me to dload an office document editor? unfortunately, only xperia pro has editor built in but its 3.5mm jack is on the side. i want this neo since the jack is at the top so i hope i could match what pro has over neo by being able to dload an office editor for word excel and ppoint.
choosing between the ARC and the NEO will solely depend on the price!
anyone know the release date?? cant wait!!

you should join me in buying the neo because the size is smaller and it fits better in the pocket. Plus, I'm sure the price will be much better. And the front camera is also a nice feature since most apps are supporting it now.
Let's wait for a dual core phone from S/E and than upgrade our neo, what do you think man :D
Don't get me wrong the Arc is super cool and sleek but since the neo has everything, I think we have a good deal.
