Pros Covers all your needs starting from calling friends and ending with lots of tons of features.
Cons Sometimes might slow down and might become unresponsitive.
Start up takes along time.
Summary Get the Vivaz. That's all i can say because i actually have one, and i am happy with it and not planning to change it.
Pros Easy to hold once I bought a gel case ($2 off Ebay) Takes very good photos, nice screen.
Cons NO APPS. No ability to edit documents despite paying for aftermarket software. This device is limited to being a nice phone, camera, web surfer as few other apps are available. Phone is very slippery to hold without a case resulting in lots of droppin
Summary Although it is a Symbian phone, you can't access the only decent symbian store (Ovi) and as a result there is very little you can do with this phone. It is not a smartphone. It is a very good cell phone but does not qualify as a smartphone at all. Buy it for your 15 year old, she will love you for it. Very nice screen. NIce photos. Nice screens for customizing your favourites etc. MInimal organizer features but no way does this compare to my earlier Palm Centro for Apps and PDA features. I can't even get an app to do my grocery list or to do list well. There are many better choices.
Pros The Sony Ericsson Vivaz is a beautiful phone. The vivaz has a great desing and great home screen, some great downloadable software & a 3D chip for Games that most Nokia s60v5 phones cant handle. The Camere's amazing with HD recording and 8mp Camera!
Cons This phones only let down is the software. Symbian is developed by Nokia so you can blame them. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Hardware is amazing but the software lets it down. While there are numerous downloads to fix it (e.g SPB Shell) it's the only con.
Summary The negative reviews for the Sony Ericsson Vivaz should not put you off buying the phone. It is a great piece of hardware and you get what you pay for. That's the main thing people forget, you get what you pay for. If you want the ultimate smart phone you have to pay the ultimate price... Well you don't have to die but you know what I mean. Anyway, I really recommend the Sony Ericsson Vivaz to anyone getting a smart phone for the sake of getting a smart phone.
Pros Camera, range of features, apps
Cons Stylus required. on screen keyboard is too small
Summary A Stylus? Really? Come on !!! This phones on screen touch keyboard is too small to use fingers to type on. A Stylus is really needed. However there is no place to keep a stylus so it just dangles by a thread from the bottom of the phone.
Call quality is just ok. Be sure to hide the Sim contacts from view and only use the phone memory phone book.
On the positive side the bloat-ware from AT&T can easily be removed.
Pros The phone offers adequate phone quality for the caller and the receiver. As for physical features, its bluish-black color and slightly curved shape gives it a contemporary, stylish appearance.
Cons Tiny keys do not easily respond to touch.
Failure to clear the keypad from screen after placing a call results in poor call quality.
Camera's "light" feature provides inadequate illumination for night photography.
Summary Fails to make the grade. Sony should flunk this model quickly and pretend it never happened.
