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.
blaze, 01 Feb 2011do you really own a zylo???
coz if u did you won't be asking this question....
the zylo's ... moreLOL wow, some of you guys seem to be paid by SE the way you post comments. They give you free phones or something?
So first i navigate through the main menu and start the camera app. Then i use the button located in the middle of the phone, covering half the screen, instead of near the end where i'm holding my hand. I can't think of a more awkward way to shoot. Which is why i use the middle button on the d-pad instead. And you call it a shutter key. Which is what confused me. I thought there was some hidden button which only you had found, which worked like the previous well designed SE camera buttons. And FYI there is no 'shutter' in the phone.
I'm gonna be buying this phone for the next 2 weeks! (After pay day lol) This is going to be my return into SE phones. Last one was C902. Well yeah, once you go Sony Ericsson you'll keep coming back for more. Agree?
this fones really gud ! i swam in a pool and it was still going well it was on !! (:
Julian, 31 Jan 2011What shutter keys?do you really own a zylo???
coz if u did you won't be asking this question....
the zylo's walkman key doubles as shutter key once the camera is on.
rinku, 31 Jan 2011dear... C5 is far better than zylo... afterall reliability is big thing , which sony gives as ... moreDude ...
Don't make me bash ur c5.
Zylo gives u a great slider look, much bigger 2.6 inch screen with much more clarity & vibrant colours as compared to c5, great sound quality(gsmarena called zylo perfect audio player), 260 mb internal memory, scratch resistant screen, very good camera as compared to c5, video rec. vga@24 fps, no hanging or restarting like symbian based c5, zylo is virus free bcoz it's java os is based on linux(which can't be affected by virus), motion sensor games, accelerometer, shake control, sense me, music call, plays high quality FLAC format songs(for the 1st time in mobile phones), clear bass, clear stereo technologies, preloaded youtube, facebook, twitter, myspace, accuweather, neo barcode reader, preloaded google maps, new bluetooth version 2.1 , very fast user interface(not slow like symbian), Track ID, photo fix & many more.
Only advantage in c5 is GPS but zylo has Google Maps which fill the need of GPS.
abhi, 30 Jan 2011All this is happening bcoz u got ur zylo in the 1st batch. Have u heard anyone having display... moreI hope you're right. It's been about a month since i got the phone and i'm having jitters after the service center guy said he has a 150 zylos waiting in the shop for spare parts from SE.
Why are people comparing a slider with a bar phone? Compare sliders with sliders.

C5 is far better than zylo... afterall reliability is big thing , which sony gives as big "ZERO" . and also c5 has secondry camera fr 3g video calling...... so for indians c5 is superb and fully loaded cell
[deleted post]dear friends the display problem that u heard is only in those units assembled in india and the manufacturing defect in the assembly line had been clarified last november....
some people who keep saying it got problems are die hard nokia fans who are afraid of zylo taking over c5's market...
coz zylo beats c5 in all aspects be it screen size,density,motion gaming,vga video at 24fps,music dedicated keys,shutter keys,walkman,shake control,internal memory,multitasking,or scratch resistant screen......... .flac music playback,HD audio playback and several others.....
accept the change folks ,zylo is a real winner from sony after quite some time
just compare c5 and zylo if you are against my view......
[deleted post]Don't hear anyone and go for zylo..........it's awesome mobile to use.....
hi friends !!!

Have u heard anyone having display problem who bought it in recent months ??? I guess NO... bcoz all the zylo's r fine now.

now the new one is free from problem......
sound is louder from old one
Zylo is not as convinient as it looks...its been less than 6 months since i got the phone and this is the second time i'm facing the display-blackout problem.
Let me be more specifc, the display just goes blank.I had given it for service the first time, and i got it back from them after a month( coz they said they hadnt recieved the parts).. and now..2 months after the service .. it just decided to go blank once again.. This is very annoying as i require my phone on a daily basis.. Can anyone suggest some numbers on which i can contact them...?Is there any use of asking for a replacement, coz im clearly not interested in a 'repair'!
And for those of you reading this...if you are thinking bout buying Zylo, then i have a word of advise... "big mistake"... i had my faith in sony ericsson, and i now im absolutely shattered...
