Summary: Impressions Sony Ericsson W902 catches your at first glance, which is definitely good for SE's business. My first impression when I held it in hand is that I have something different from the old Walkman series devices. Apparently the phone finally has the 'wow factor' so much needed these days. The Good Surprisingly for a Walkman phone, W902 also distinguishes itself through its camera quality.
Pros: Surprisingly for a Walkman phone, W902 also distinguishes itself through its camera quality. Gathering capabilities of both well-known series manufactured by Sony Ericsson, Cyber-shot and Walkman, W902 becomes the first hybrid phone available for SE fans. Even if the price is still high, all the features included are up to the highest standards: camera, music sound, battery, data transfer speeds.
Cons: I believe that a much better CPU would've been required for an animated GUI. Also, I think that the phone still lacks originality in terms of design. While it may seem to be compact and ergonomic, after using it for more than a month I think the construction of the handset is not up to the standards of the rest of the features.
Excerpt: While packed with all the now-familiar cell accoutrements – music player, email, AGPS location-based services and navigation, the Sony Ericsson C902′s main drawing card is its 5-megapixel camera. It takes great pictures, among the best we’ve seen from a camera phone, but not as good as those taken by the Kodak-equipped Motorola ZINE ZN5 from T-Mobile. Since the C902 is unlocked, though, it’s priced at $549.99, around five times as much as the ZINE.
Pros: Comes unlocked; high quality 5MP camera; excellent music player; web browser
Cons: Expensive; keys are tightly packed; no 3.5mm headphone jack; uses M2 memory sticks
Conclusion: So there you have it – the Sony Ericsson C902 CyberShot camera phone fully reviewed. Personally I’d give it around an 8/10. Don’t expect it to replace the K850i, and it’s certainly no match for the Nokia N82 or N96, but then it’s not meant to be. It’s a super-thin mid-range designer camera phone with HSDPA and a 5 megapixel camera capable of taking decent pictures.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson C902 Cyber-shot is a 5 megapixel cameraphone that features autofocus while maintaining a slim, bulge-free profile. Russell takes it out for a spin around town and comes away very impressed - except for the C902's surprisingly short battery life, that is.
Summary: Our C902 unit was loud enough be hear in most, even call-unfriendly environmnets. The reception quality of the C902 was quite good – we got strong signal levels in most places and didn’t notice any significant differences from other contemporary solutions. Also going for the C902 is its superb build quality.
Excerpt: Gizmo freaks in India are all set to have some handy fun with the new Sony Ericsson C902.
