I was really pissed off when the service center guy said he has a 150 zylos waiting for parts for a month. Nothing against you personally, but i bought this phone only on your recommendation when some people said the cedar's sound quality isn't that great, and you said the zylo is a better phone than the cedar. I'm a bit scared to use the slider, so i unlock and then use shortcuts whenever possible. The main reason i prefer SE phones is the awesome shortcuts compared to other brands.
I have no idea why opera 4.2 and 5 don't run when 4.1 and previous versions do. In fact, when installing, they connect to the internet (globe icon in the top right corner) and there is some amount of data transfer ( ) but after some time it quits saying could not connect. Wierd. I will try with someone else's sim.
I was not able to directly play any mp4 movies directly downloaded from the internet, even small ones with a resolution of 480x272 and aac audio, filesize 292mb. So i converted an xvid movie using handbrake to the native resolution but with a high video bitrate of 700kbps and aac audio of 160kbps. Result was awesome, very clear and sharp. The conversion process took about 15 minutes.
I don't have too much problems with calls, only occasional muffled sound, if it increases i might use my old T610 for phoning and this one as a movie/mp3 player + camera. Coz it's an awesome media device for 7k + 1.3k for a 16gb card.

Before buying zylo myself I recommended a close friend of mine to buy it (at that time zylo's were shipping with flex problem but I didn't have any idea abt it).
His zylo got display problem in just 20 days bcoz he is a heavy user. At that time I was feeling very stupid of myself for giving him advice of a really buggy phone. He than gave it in the service centre & got his phone back in 15 days with flex wire changed.
Now he is using his zylo from almost 3 months after the repair(as usual very heavily) but he hasn't got even a single problem in it & now he is more than happy to have this phone.
I'm using it from a long time(thankfully one of the later buyers of this phone) & I don't have any problem with it.
For ur opera mini 4.2 & 5.1 running problems - it's ur network carrier's problem bcoz my & my friend's zylo r running these versions very nicely.
For ur call quality problem - I don't know what's the problem > ur network or ur phone but my zylo provides very nice call quality . And if u don't believe what I say than I hope that u believe what gsmarena says in it's review. They called call quality "excellent".
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2011Hi, guys!
Want to buy a new phone for my mum.
She's sends a lot of text messages and mms, ... moresince it's a 320x240 resolution screen but at a gigantic 2.6 inches, the fonts are already pretty huge. in fact i would have preferred an option to make it smaller so i could see more text in messages etc.
the keys are pretty good, they don't have a sharp click response, pretty soft though decent feedback. don't feel cheap plasticky, but that's my personal opinion. I do hit space by mistake a lot, that's probably because the keys are all in one flat plane, with each key only having a bump in the middle to distinguish them.
blaze, 03 Feb 2011sorry to say, but ,u r unlucky.

Now what explanation do you have? indian assembly line indeed. FYI, there is nothing to do with the assembly unit itself, it's the damn flex strip that's faulty. and the strip is probably made in china, not india.
luck has nothing to do with a simple purchase of a phone. shame on SE for releasing a phone with problems, and then moreover not fixing it properly and in time.

You're the one being childish here promoting features about a buggy phone which many people have genuine complaints about. And your answer to them is the problem was with the old batch. How does that solve their problem? Even after service they're getting the phones back with new problems. So you're basically saying all the old batch owners who've paid money (dunno if you have) for their phones should just shut up, and only new buyers should comment here?
Want to buy a new phone for my mum.
She's sends a lot of text messages and mms, takes photos all the time...
Pitty this Zylo doesn't have a videocall camera, because she's used to that, too.
Before I get it, just need to know two things:
1- can we set the phone to display a BIG font for contacts and messages?
(I've owned a couple of SE years ago and it sãs impossible to change the font size)
2- are the keys nice to touch or do they have that awful plastic "feel"?
Niktha, 01 Feb 2011Ann, I am facing same kind of problem. I bought a Zylo on October 2nd. It got display complain... moresorry to say, but ,u r unlucky.
the zylo's assembly unit in india had a manufacturìng defect in its assembly unit.
it had been correctd only last november.
so all the hand sets that had its manufacturing date before or 1st week november usually had the same problem.
but lucky ones like me who bought phones manufacturd on january got the finest handset under 10k by buying zylo.
Hi guys..i'm posting after quite long..
Lets get to d point. I'm loving my phone! It has absolutely no problems whatsoever(atleast till now hopefully!) There's no display or slider problem. D sound output is still going great. I've fallen in love with google maps! But yeah it does take a little extra time to launch at times I dont know why..recently I was on roaming and d voice clarity while calling was crystal clear as ever. The browser's doing fine(i'm currently using opera mini 5.1)..texting is super smooth too. I've filled up almost all of my 4gb space but its running like new! And even after using the phone to its utmost capacity the battery backup is damn cool(1.5 to 2 days with ease,obviously I do charge my phone frequently for optimum performance) Basically nothing to complain about. Those wishing to buy this phone please go ahead without hesitation. Though do think about better earphones for much better output. Zylo's a killer. A little more privacy options though would've increased its versatility! Feel free to ask questions. My phone's gonna complete a month in a day!
you people dont have any sense ???
compare zylo with any other slider
not with the waste bar c5
Julian, 01 Feb 2011And since you mentioned dedicated music keys, how do i pause the track when the screen is lock... moreyeah i agree u cant pause the music with dedicated keys........
but can you tell me of any other phone at this range where you can skip tracks prev or next, lower or incres volume with just moving your hand and not pressing keys ????
i challenge you, if you can't, quit, instead of arguing like a baby.....
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2011does it support java softwares and does it have built in dictionary ??it supports java and have no in built dictionary
C5 HAS SYMBIAN OS, BT ZYLO BASED ON JAVA,
so c5 much wider than zylo when we look the application. am i correct?
does it support java softwares and does it have built in dictionary ??
ANN, 30 Jan 2011Zylo is not as convinient as it looks...its been less than 6 months since i got the phone and ... moreAnn, I am facing same kind of problem. I bought a Zylo on October 2nd. It got display complaint on December 26th. The phone was in service center for almost 23 days,then they gave it back. When I checked it, camera was not working. Again I gave it for service. After so many days, I got it yesterday after repair. Now the phone is not getting charged. I used the same battery in another phone,it was charging. So, its the problem of phone. I complained to service center technicians & asked them to replace the phone. Phone is getting more & more damaged due to the irresponsible behaviour of the technicians. They are telling that they wont take the responsibility of the phone & gave it back. They told that they will replace the battery within 2 days. What is the use in replacing a battery without complaints? I don't know what to do. Complaints to SE company is also not working. If the company is making this kind of stupid phones, customers like us will be in trouble. Why don't they give value for the money we are giving them?
I am not at all satisfied with this phone. I am sure that it will aways be in the service center.
If anybody who has got same kind of problems, know any idea to get the phone replaced, pls pls tell me..

Though C5 has GPS, Zylo has Google Maps with My Location feature that gives your approximate location by cell tower trangulation method. Its working pretty good with my vodafone GPRS (if your network provider has more tower, you'll get more exact location).

I can adjust volume, skip tracks forward and back, but there's no pause? Kinda missing in a W phone eh?
It's a decent phone but you guys promote it like it's the best phone ever created. Accept it's good points and also the bad. Stop listing features like no ones seen them on the official site already.
