4 weeks using experience
I love this phone. Boots up fast. Good camera, WIFI, touch screen and design. I am using 16gb microsdhc class 6 samsung memory card and it works like a charm.
Some good applications that i am using:
1) waze - road navigation application
2) flashlight - for using camera led as torch
3) camscanner - for converting pics taken by camera to pdf
4) Tubemate - For downloading videos directly from youtube to phone
6) Astro - a good file manager
7) Download All Files - to download files to phone from browser.
SE fantastic phones for around one year...then they would become cheapest china phones.
my friend bough vivaz pro after one year phone covered full of scratches
can we connect this phone to wifi network created on laptop(to share LAN internet on phone) ?
its superb phone...:) my xperia neo v has never rebooted....its awsome phone with great features which samsung s 2 has...all the ppl who r tellin drawbacks of this phone are just fools...or may b they donlike SE....but i love the quality of SE which no other phone co. give....:)
neo, 05 Nov 2011hi I am looking at buying this phone..heard of problems of rebooting..u face this problem ever?nope no rebooting problem for me... my Neo V is working perfect.
although there is one update from SE for the model that i havnt update... seems that those who are suffering reboot problem might be bcoz of that update or due to some junk app.
I recently brought a Sony xperia neo v. I think it's a magical bar really happy with it

When it comes to design there is no one to surpass Sony ericsson. All the best for new venture and keep an upper hand in Smart phone market.
AnonD-25487, 04 Nov 2011Yaaa ill leave dat much space.. But d 16gb wont slow down my phone rite??It supports 32 gb micro SDHC, hence a 16 gb one in the card slot shouldn't be affect to performance.
You should be more concern about running services in the background coz they will affect to phone performance if there are many applications hv been installed into the phone. Task killer may stop some running apps but doesn't clear the cache processes until you reboot the phone. Restarting the phone every one or 2 days could be keeping its performance.
ok i am using this phone for now 3 weeks and my review
>DESIGN: SE never let me down with the models it came out
Apple iPhone- i am only 1
Samsung- Xerox copies
LG- how many have launched?
Motorola- do they even have market in India? lol
Nokia- isko NO-Kia
but Sony Ericsson... beautiful sexy eye-catching designs unique frm other SE models too...
>DISPLAY- Bravia engine and Led backlit makes it vivid, sharp and smooth
best part is that it is easily readable under direct sunlight
>UI- absolute lag free, simple yet clever specially the overview mode of homescreen where widget floats... absolutely lovely
>CONNECTIVITY- WiFi and bluetooth are working well no issues, havnt used 3G
little let down on headphone... my W200i's bass reflex headphone seems to beat the MH410 headphone of Neo v in terms of Bass and feel quality... but clarity of MH410 is good[though they dont stay on my ears >:(]
>MEMORY- at 1st 320MB internal storage made me... hmmmmm... but i have installed 59 apps of which 23 are gamesand yet i have 98MB free... Gingerbread helps though
supplement of 2GB is sort of joke frm SE but well i m using it.. its a class 2 memory card..
>CAMERA- 5MP at back almost at center is perfectly placed... also having a Cam shutter button helps a lot
what i liked the most is shutter speed which is very fast and quality of image is very good.. noise levels are kept low
although my handset gives funny pinkish distortion when i use the led for capturing photos(i still havnt visited Sony world)
the front cam havnt used much... but fair enough to talk thru yahoo messenger video chat :)
>BATTERY- on absolutely no usage for 3 hours my phone used mere 5%... on moderate usage(2 hr gaming, 3hr internet wifi, arnd 20 mins talk, abt 1hr music, some 40 click) battery went down frm 86% to 49%... which according to me is great...
what surprised me was the charging speed... when it became 5% it charged to 100% in under 2 hrs...and this happens all times (please let me knw other is this is abnormal i ll complain SE)
NO HD GAMES FRM GAMELOFT YET!!! :(
there are many other HD games which are enjoyable... but still i want to have big names to support this device soon... i have already mailed gameloft abt it.
>Calender: when synced with facebook all the birthday on the day are at 12am on that day...so in the widget they dont show up as they are suppose to for that day
for example, if my bday is on 6th nov on calender it will be marked but on widget it show events after12am or the bday on 7th nov... something of nuisance which SE or FB needs to rectify...
>Also there is a widget called "TRAFFIC" which when i used made my phone horribly slow... dont know what is its use or how to use it... i havnt used it since.
other than that absolutely stunning phone... very fast... android market has kept me busy :P ... at INR 17.5k not a bad deal.
Jai, 04 Nov 2011My sympathies... I have heard that a lose battery is sometimes at fault that causes the reboot... moreNo sir, I haven't tried with a paper inserted. But it is a new phone, hardly a fortnight old and one wouldn't expect the battery cover getting lose so quickly. And I started experiencing the problem from day 1.
AnonD-25487, 04 Nov 2011M plannin to put a 16gb card in my NeoV.. But will fill it till 8 onli.. Will dat affect my ph... moreCertainly not, you're correct to leave an amount of free space in sd card in order to maintain its performance. 10-15 pct empty space from total capacity should be good enough IMO.
