Having said this, I bought the phone to use as a phone... not as a digital camera, and for this I am quite happy with it. The extra office/organizer features such as calendar, notes, tasks, etc. are fully compatible with MS Outlook with which they can be synchronized at the click of a button. This proved to be very useful and something I now use all the time.
The only truly downsides that I have experienced with this phone are the relatively poor original battery life (quite good initially, but rapidly decreased as the months went by), and the cumbersome easily opened-by-accident camera cover. Because of this, I can only give it 4 stars.
As mentioned above, although it is definitely not perfect (nothing is...), I do like this phone quite a bit, and do think it is excellent overall value for money.
This is a great phone, with some good features:
The phone is good
Tha camera is excellent. I haven't tried all the features on it, but it takes great photos, due to autofocus, auto-flash and image stabiliser.
I've not tried the music player or the radio yet.
There is one downside though - the battery. I found that the battery only lasted a couple of days, until one of your other reviewers (Mobile Phone King) stated that to prolong the life of the battery, change the settings from 3G/GSM to GSM only. This seems to have done the trick. Shame this wasn't mentioned in the user manual that came with the phone. I also don't like it that to fully recharge the phone it takes 2.5 hours.
At first i wasent sure about it. Its not the most attractive looking phone out there, and after having the LG chocolate, its like trading in Jennifer Lopez for madonna (now this isnt a bad thing, but you get my point.)Anyway The phone looks good and has very nice curves at the top and bottom. also a rather professional lavender colour behind the buttons. The phone itself feels solid, and you think to yourself if I dropped this on the floor, it might chip the floor!!
The screen has great colour as you'd expect from a phone that has class written all over it. The menu's are soooooooo easy to navigate, and the photo and video albums show off your pic's great.
The theme's that come as standered arnt as nice as the one's that came on the w800i but if you look at a few sony ericsson theme sites you can download some really nice looking skins for the phone!! This was a selling point for me, as i dont know any other phones the let you customise as much as this one!!!
THE CAMERA!!!! And Well WOW!!!! 3.2 mega pixel says it all, the phone has loads of options for taking your pics and the zoom is great and dosent fuzz much at all, like i have seen on all other phones that have a zoom.Read more ›
Great camera - 3 megapixel with auto focus. Hold the button down until the phone beeps and you see the white box turn green. Metal slide keeps it safe from scratches and when opened, automatically starts the camera even when you have keypad lock on - great for quick snaps. It also has a 'real' flash rather than a useless LED light!
Great calendar - with alarm clock which wakes you up but allows you to turn the phone off at night to save battery. Tasks list & Notes. Code memo which can store all your secret passwords but can only be accessed with the code.
Music player - to play all your MP3 tracks. Lets you sort by Artist/track or create playlists.
Entertainment - FM radio, Video player and editor, sound recorder, Bluetooth remote control - allows you to use your phone as a cordless presenter for PowerPoint presentations etc. Bluetooth V2 USB stick required.
Contacts - Loads of storage for all your contacts and their various numbers/birthday/notes/email & postal addresses
File Manager - Lets you browse everything stored on your phone memory and memory card. Very handy to find and select pictures/videos/music/ringtones/themes/games/applications
USB Cable - This is supplied and very useful for transferring pictures and other files to/from phone
3G drains the battery - I was disappointed with the battery life at first until I figured out you can turn off 3G in Settings>Connectivity>Mobile Networks>GSM/3G Networks (select GSM only). Now lasts much longer and am very happy with performance. Only really need 3G for fast internet browsing and video calls, neither of which I use on this phone.
