5.0 out of 5 stars I love my phone! 6 Sep 2010
By Vi
I read some horror stories about this phone and was a bit wary of buying it, but I desperately needed a new phone as I sometimes have difficulties with keypads going stiff. I also have a hatred of most other phone manufacturers and Sony Ericsson are the only people who have made phones that have lasted for me.

The first thing I must say is - most of the horror stories are about when the phone first came out, and as with all new electronic devices, they are always nearly useless and bug ridden new. This is why you must wait!

Many people complain about the responsiveness and difficulty, I had no such issues. I took a while to get used to it but after one week me and the phone were in sync. Do not forget to set up the touchscreen for YOU, so that it is responsive to how you touch it! This is VERY important, prior to this I hated it.

Headphone Jack
No the phone does not come with a headphone jack. However, it does come with a handsfree set that plugs into the phone. You can undo the handsfree from it's cable, there is a headphone jack on this. (Sounds weird to explain but you'd understand if you saw it). PROBLEM SOLVED

The phone is easily scratched but I find that most newer phones are this way, Sony Ericsson ones in particular. Buy a case and screen cover and save your phone, then when you want rid of it you can sell it for more.

Battery Life
Turn down screen brightness and lower vibration settings etc. Make sure to close your apps. If you do this, the battery can last over a day (with about a 6 hour break on complete standby at night). I found this pretty impressive for a touch screen phone as they usually die fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 13 Jan 2010
I totally refuse to listen to anything bad about this phone. I feel after phones like the iPhone, other touch screen phones become obsolete due to peoples obsessions with them. If anything, I prefer this to phones like that. Someone wrote about contacts earlier as well. You can add favorites to the home tabs, and everything is easy to access and you can customise pretty much everything on the phone. Someone else mentioned not being able to change the touch screens sensitivity.. it doesn't need to be changed, it's only resistive.

I've always been a Sony Ericsson user, and I think this a great outcome from them.

This is a great phone. I got mine after recommendation, and i'm really pleased with it. Regardless to bad reviews i've seen, i've never had any problems with this phone. As for the camera.. wow. I've been using the 9MP function because it's a slightly wider angle, but this is more than enough. The video quality is also great, and the AV cable is really useful for watching stuff on the tv.

A lot of people have spoke about the touch screen being resistive and not as easy to use, but I have to say I don't really agree. I think the touch screen on this phone easily is at the same level of operation as the HTC phones, and they have Capacitive screens.

Overall a great phone, definitely worth the money for what you get!

5.0 out of 5 stars The review I wish I'd seen before I bought it 20 Nov 2010
I have to say I disagree with a lot of the negative reviews. I still bought the phone after reading these and I must say it was a good decision. A lot of the issues with Symbian OS, the proprietary fastport connector and resistive touchscreen that I have heard of, i have not had a problem with.

Firstly the software bugs that have been mentioned before are mainly down to early handsets and this has been fixed with the latest firmware which is easy to load on. Symbian OS is very similar to previous models of Sony Ericssons and although it may seem boring not to have changed the style or menus, somehow the term "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" comes into mind and I find that this makes it less complicated to use.

The audio equaliser, as mentioned in other reviews, is not included as standard, however it is FREE to download from the included SE PlayNow app store which also has some other great free mobile apps.

The proprietary fastport connector has also been mentioned, however I've not found this to be an issue as adapters and cables are readily available. I picked up a thumb sized adapter for about 2.50 which fits perfect in my wallet or you could even use a set of wireless bluetooth headphones.

The resistive touchscreen is very responsive and the simple layout of the Symbian OS make it very easy to use. Texts are easy to type in using the full screen qwerty keyboard.

Overall, these are the issues I was unsure about before I bought it, but now I'm glad I did. If you are upgrading from a previous Sony Ericsson handset you will feel right at home with this model. You won't find any phone with a better camera and it's a great all rounder.
