The battery life is a little shorter than what I expected. I played some mp3s, and talked on the phone for like an hour for one day. I need to recharge it at night. Maybe it's just my first day getting it, so I played on it a lot. Sony is used to be considered as good at battery life. I hope this is does too.
At last, if you ask for my opinion, I wouldn't recommend this phone for you, because I don't want that many people to have the same good phone as I do, haha.
I like this phone, mostly because of its look. In fact, the real one does look very cool too. It's a thick phone compare to other slim flip phones, so if you are looking for a slim phone, dont buy this one. I actually like its thickness. It fits comfortably in my hand. Fliping open and close the phone makes a "duh" sound, telling you it's in the right position...(not sure about this one).
My package of the phone comes with USB cable, the software CD, 64mb M2 already installed in the phone, manuel, and the handset. The original package doesn't come with the handfree I think, because the seller that I bought from claimed that the stereo handfree was a gift.
I try the MP3 function, the quality of the mp3s is as good or better as K750, the one I had before. The external screen is very big, but the blue color is not the same as the showcase photo shows, a little darker. When you are talking the screen will remain on with pure blue color, which looks very cool at night. Plus the inside keypad blue lighting is very cool in dark too. Text msg can't be read on the external screen (at least I don't know how to). The external buttons can be locked by a slider button at the side of the phone. The internal screen is the same size as K750, a little disappointment on this.
I got the data cable, but no usb driver. Can anyone help me? XP dosen't install it in file transfer mode.
Just recieve mine today. My old phone is K750. I have been a fan of SE for a few years. Can't wait to test my new phone.
during a phone call, is the external screen always stay blue? is it possible to put a picture or something else on the screen?
esato, could you please post the link again? It showed up "..." in the middle of the link, thanks!!
This handset will be out on o2 around about the 7th of October. If recent SE's are anything to go by, it should be a great handset, with a fantastic battery life and extremely easy to use!
Actually the antenna is still external, except that now it is tucked away to the back. So I'd expect the reception to be great, just like the other Sony Ericsson phones with external antennas. Here's a photo from the angles which show the antenna: http://www.mobile-review.com/review/image/sonyeric/z710/pic05.jpg
I'd copy it into the address bar, cos sometime things don't hyperlink properly on this forum.
at around $350 with deliver cost the phone and style is actually worth the wait. I got tmobile and nothing they have says let met sign up for 2 more years just to get a discount on a phone. Well thats just my personal opinion, which most likely means nothing.
z710 vs. 6131
- the SE has a battery life, 3X better than N's
- the 6131 display is not protected(as a review says)
Have you tried both of them by yourself head to head? In which feature 6131 is better than Z710?
I look at the specification both of them almost 100% similar,except Z710 has 2 Mpx vs 1.3 Mps in 6131; poliphonic 72 vs 64; and the screen 262.000 vs 16 M.
Please share your experience completely. Thanks
aside from the camera the nokia 6131 its better in all the other features.
Do you think the receptions of this phone is as good as Z520, since the antenna is now "totally" internal. I used Z520 before, the phone reception was great, I am now using a Samsung D820, got no signal in my basement, unlike before when I used z520. Please comment, thanks!
What is taking SE so darn long??? Why isn't this phone widely available yet???
