Summary Out of the Cyber Shot camera phone family, I've owned 3. The k790, K850, and now the C905. Each of these three phones were ahead of their times and the latest entry into the Cybershot line is no exception. The C905 has taken everything that the 850 had problems with and revamped it. I personally love this phone and plan on keeping it for quite a while. The music player is very solid and the camera speaks for itself. Wi-fi and 3G speeds could be a bit faster, but for an unlocked phone it is fantastic. (better than my old k850)
This phone is much more solid in construction than my previous phone and the slider opens up with a very satisfying click. The number pad is flat, and could use a bit more tactile button set-up because the flat buttons make it hard to text sometimes.
All in All, if you have the money and need a new phone and digital camera, this phone is the best investment for a 2 in 1 piece of tech. You won't regret it.
Pros The phone has HSDPA 3G, and that means video calls. You need to get a special plan to do that, but the fact that it's there is pretty cool. The camera kicks butt. Better than my real camera, in fact. It's a semi-Walkman phone, too.
Cons AT&T took out Wi-Fi. Jerks. Debrand the sucker. I know I did. Also, debranding gives you unlimited-length ringtones. AT&T also took the accelerometer games out.
Summary This phone is cool, but it is a LOT better without AT&T's firmware full of CRAP. Debrand it to SonyEricsson FW, and it's fine. Wi-Fi is a big plus to have in a non-smart phone. It saves a lot on your data plan. [Not that i care, I have unlimited everything, but it is faster.] The phone is best for its camera. At 8.1 megapixels, you can't go wrong. Oh and by the way, AT&T's FW asks you if you want to allow access to the internet about EVERY 5 SECONDS. Why should I care? Anyways, if you can only buy this at AT&T [or you just want it cheap], do so and debrand it with the included USB cable. Otherwise, buy the c905 unlocked. It kicks butt.
Pros Excellent Camera resolution in all lighting conditions thanx to the xenon flash
First Wi-Fi phone without being a smart phone
A huuuuuge improvement from C902 which i think is waaay over-rated and expensive for the options it has.
Cons Video quality kinda sucks in VGA mode
Lens cover has not changed.. simillar to the k790 & k800 .. i liked how they had it built-in on the k850..
Summary Always been a fan of sony ericsson... owned SE phone form early in the days when they had the T610s... then went with K750, K790i, K800, K850 , C902 and now C905..
I can tell you that this phone by far has the best photo experience at 8.1 megapixels compared to the rest. Was somehow dissapointed with the K850 and C902 due to manufactoring defects.. (like shutting off, freezing...)
I would be very glad if SE keeps up with their reputation... cause i'm sure they lost a lot of customers due to those earlier mentioned devices...
All in all, C905 is worth your money... i wouldnt even need a camera... cause the pics you get outta this phone is quite stunning..
Pros The great camera; been waiting for that for years
Cons Should have HiDef video. Should have second slide-out keyboard for texting.
Summary AT&T turned off the Wi-Fi which is wrong and should be illegal!
Since we buy this phone it is OUR property and they have no right to tell us how to use it. I will be buying one but not via AT&T!
Pros 8.1 MP camera
Call sound quality
Cons Big (not comfortable/concealable)
Oddball size jack for hedphones
Viewing pictures on screen not a good indication of actual picture
Summary I have had this CAMERA phone for one week now and it is just what I've been looking for. If you are like me, then you will be very happy with it as well. My priorities in a cell phone is good call quality, particularly speaker/earpiece volume, with good signal strength and a good (preferably great/excellent) camera.
I am not interested in "Apps". Just hearing the term alone makes me throw up in my mouth a little. I completely understand those who do. If I wanted apps, I probably would have gotten an iPhone. My main concerns are what I listed above.
I have a 3-year-old son and a 6-year-old son. I feel very guilty for not lugging around our camera when we go out, but who wants to deal with another device when going out somewhere. I wanted a phone that had good basic features and an excellent camera. I have found it.
As I mentioned, it is big. It's almost the exact same size as my wife's Blackberry 8110, except it is very thick. I like to keep my phone in my front pocket and it makes for a cumbersome feel. I really don't want to have it attached to my hip, but I may have to look into a holder in the future.
I also seems like the resolution on the screen when viewing a picture is not very good. It' doesn't really give a good indication as to what the picture will actually look like when viewed on a computer.
My review is pretty narrow, in that I can only really comment on how this phone would serve someone whose interests in a phone are like mine. I don't know how it performs for App's, sorry!
