However, some of us are investing onoffice equipment from an economic point of view. We tend to compare devices within their approximate price range. See this reference as an example in cmk cell Ph0n3s d0t c0m, st substitute the appropriate letters to see the particular price list. We're trying to compare apples to oranges that are in the same price range.
metacom, 12 Nov 2011does it support smart dialing?Download Go Contacts from the market.
Sony Ericsson phones will never support dialing.
metacom, 12 Nov 2011does it support smart dialing?no, and none of us give a ****! Smart dialling should be confined to the dustbin of phone history.
Vj, 12 Nov 2011The screen size is jus 3.7inches... thts a normal size... thats d small disadvantage...
May... moreI like the screen size on the Xperia Pro. It actually makes the device very compact and fits in the pocket easily.
The screen is also amazing - the best I personally have seen.
AnonD-5041, 12 Nov 2011Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro (SE Iyokan) MK16i has already been released for quite some time now, ... moreit must be compared only to other qwerty android fones. i have both HTC Desire Z and Xperia Pro, Xperia has the much much better camera, less/no UI lag, higher stability, better keyboard, and a ton less software bugs. for example wifi hotspot, it works so delightful on the xperia pro, while it barely works at all on the HTC. Same with USB tethering. These are all very weak spots of Desire Z (and desire series in general), while the Xperia series excel in these areas.
Advantage of the HTC Desire Z: Better screen (SLCD) has better colors and much better viewing angles, and much less backlight bleeding. The Z-hinge is good but the slider of xperia pro isnt bad either. Battery is possibly slightly better on HTC, maybe, im not yet sure of this. Edit: Digital compass is bad on the xperia pro while Desire Z has one of the best there is.
All in all, HTC Desire Z is a very bad phone, stay clear! i can recommend xperia pro but beware of the display viewing angles, the display is not impressive if put beside an Optimus 2X (IPS panel) or any HTC Desire series with SLCD.
The screen size is jus 3.7inches... thts a normal size... thats d small disadvantage...
May be it wud hav been better if its more than 4.0 inch... or as in Arc 4.2 inches...
Nowadays d phone size is becoming bigger... nd it looks gr8 to watch a video or play a game with more than 4.2inches...
wat u ppl say...!!!
Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro (SE Iyokan) MK16i has already been released for quite some time now, some countries even for as long as three (3) full months ago. So what will it take for you to make a decent review and comparison about it? We'd like to know how the screen legibility fares in direct sunlight compared to Samsung Galaxy SL I9103SL/ Galaxy Ace (Cooper) GT-S5830 / HTC Desire / S / HD.
AB2, 12 Nov 2011just i want to be sure about the Video Call ... is it available with the 3G in this mobile or ... more3G videocall is not awiable because Samsung got the patent. 3G videocall is only awiablefor dumbphones and Samsung Galaxy Family
Gmz, 12 Nov 2011Any news that this phone OS can upgrade to Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0?Yes, it will be updated maybe on 2012
Been using this phone over a week now. Really excellent phone. No electrostatic noise issues, like i had with 2 xperia mini pro's. Phone call quality is good and it takes pretty good 720p videos also. Using is very snappy and no there's no lag. 1ghz snapdragon is more than enough on actaul real use. No point for spending money on 1,4ghz ect just to get better points on bechmark apps. ;) I was impressed also how good the battery life is, propably helps because screen has led backlight. Overall really good purchase in my opinion.
Did anyone received this mobile from dealsandyou recently..?Please post ur opinions. I've ordered 10 days back.
just i want to be sure about the Video Call ... is it available with the 3G in this mobile or not ??
